Preston, counselor

“Kim is very engaging and dynamic when she speaks. Her content is relatable, straightforward and powerful. Her message opened up a great time of conversation with students and she loved meeting them where they were at and answering their questions.”

Shanelle, educator

“Kim’s message truly allowed for students to speak up about their feelings, as well as hard seasons or times of life. Understanding that we all have different battles we are fighting and no matter how big or small, it matters. Also it allowed for those struggling with self worth, or potential self harm, to open up and ask questions, or maybe even just listen and know that they aren’t alone in those thoughts or ideas. It’s hard to find an environment where students are willing to discuss these hard topics, and emotional issues, but Kim created that environment and it helped the students to see that 1. It gets better and 2. There is so much to live for. “

Rebekah, educator

“I highly recommend Kim to speak at any event. She is passionate and personable. Two of the key things that drew our students to talk openly about what has been going on in their OWN lives. Everyone needs to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The kids would have her back in a heartbeat.”

Andy, director

“Kim spoke to our middle school and high school kids. I would highly recommend her to you. Her message opened up doors for conversation. It was a really inspiring, great story, and I certainly recommend her for your school or upcoming event.”

Stephanie, counselor

“Kim’s story is one of faith and heartache, woven together in real life circumstances. It’s so easy to relate to the ups and downs! If you want to laugh, and cry, feel tugged by scary circumstances, and then soar to the heights with a heart full of hope, I highly recommend Kim as a speaker!!”
