Welcome, Kim. We are excited to have you here. Can you please tell our readers a bit about yourself?
After a difficult childhood filled with violence, hunger, abuse, and poverty, my siblings and I were taken from our home and put into an orphanage, then foster care. Eventually, four of us were adopted. I have lived a journey of healing for many years – I chose long ago to not only be a survivor, but to be an overcomer. Presently, my husband and I have six children. We live on a farm and enjoy our time with our children and grandchildren.
Tell us about your latest book. What is it about and what inspired you to write it?
Taken word for word as heard from God, Closet Words is a collection of powerful and penetrating words written down in the stillness of a prayer closet. Hearing from God for several years, I began writing down in a journal what I heard: encouraging, uplifting, and challenging words with a clear message to His servants. Closet Words gives a renewal and refreshing word to the Christian believer. It is a call to action for Christians to find within themselves their true commitment to God. Each chapter builds on the previous one, calling the reader to a deeper, closer and more committed relationship with God.
What is different about your book compared to other books out on the market?
Although similar to a prayer/devotional book, it is deeper, as the book is 100% a collection of words from God.
What was the most challenging part of writing this book? The most rewarding?
The Study Guide. Closet Words is a collection of words from God. It is copied word-for-word from my journal. However, I decided to add a Study Guide for group or personal study at the end of the book. I spent over 90 hours writing that portion.
The most rewarding has been hearing the impact Closet Words has had on people’s lives.
What do you hope readers will learn from your book?
God wants us to take our Christianity seriously. We are never alone and God does hear our prayers.
Where can readers purchase a copy of your book?
The book is available at Amazon.
What is up next for you?
The next book coming is Dripping In Grace: The True Story of Past Horror, Present Healing and Permanent Grace.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
God wants us to take our Christianity seriously. It is time the Christian believer answers the bugle call.
