If You Haven’t Heard Of John Crist, You Need To Check Your Heart

It's time to get baptized in sweet tea.

If You Haven’t Heard Of John Crist, You Need To Check Your Heart

He's all over the internet. 1 million followers on Instagram, almost 2 million followers on Facebook, nearly 200k followers on Twitter, and over 82 million views on YouTube, John Crist is a familiar face in the world of comedy. If you haven't heard of him, you've been living under a rock. John is known for his trademarked phrases like "Check Your Heart", "I Ain't Praying For That", and " For Sure No." Go check out his merch at and buy yourself something. Then, go to one of his shows and prepare to leave with your cheeks and abs hurting from laughing so much.

John loves to connect with his fans. From t-shirt contests to picking on random people in the audience, John knows how to have a good time and make people feel like they're a part of the show. I remember at one of his shows I attended a while back, he told the story of a woman with cancer who would lay in her hospital bed and watch his comedy videos. She sent him a message to let him know that his videos helped her forget the pain of the cancer. She felt free and like she could just enjoy life for a little bit. That's the type of comedian that is worth watching and laughing with.

John is also known for hilariously quoting Bible verses in several of his videos. His "Lady who has a Bible verse for Every Situation" video has over 2 million views! Why is he always on tour and always posting incredibly long Instagram stories? Because his fans love his commentary! When you're funny, people want you to post stuff. When you post funny stuff, people follow you because they want to keep seeing your funny stuff. If your funny stuff focuses on the everyday things that most of us don't give a second thought, you'll connect with a huge audience. John found that sweet spot.

Another thing that John is really good at is making people go "Yeah, that is a good point." His recent post about Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran's song "I Don't Care" is SO TRUE. If the Biebs and Ed don't fit in, why do the rest of us even try? Thank you, John for pointing that out. We're glad you feel the same way we do.

John is basically a child in a grown man's body. He's so relatable to his audience because he does a good amount of his shows in churches, making fun of the weird stuff Christians say and do. It's good, clean fun and a blast to actually be there in the audience. If you're lucky, you'll be one of the people John picks on during the show. Just remember to check your heart before showing up. If you don't, for sure no you will not have a good time.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
