Kimberley, welcome to Overcoming With God. We appreciate your willingness to share your testimony of overcoming with our readers.
Would you tell us about the most difficult thing in your life you have had to overcome, with God’s help?
That would have to be the diagnosis of my daughter’s rare neurological condition, and then again, when she was diagnosed with another rare condition and had to undergo brain surgery. Those were the toughest days of my life.
When Kayla was a baby, we noticed there were some things “not right.” We immediately started searching for answers only to find out two years later that there would be no “cure,” no easy fix. The Lord worked on me in a huge way. Through this process, I realized not only that I didn’t control anything, but I didn’t want to be in control anymore. God is the Great Physician. He made Kayla, He understood her—even when all the doctors were baffled. And I found myself no longer searching for answers because I knew the One Who had the answers.
What is your favorite bible verse and why?
“Consider it pure joy my brothers whenever you face trials of many kinds, knowing that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
It’s hard to face trials and tough times, but through each and every one—I’ve learned precious lessons. I’ve leaned on the Lord wholly and completely. And I’ve been able to praise Him through it.
Our faith will be tested, but we must persevere. I’m looking forward to heaven and being mature and complete. Aren’t you?
Disability friendliness: Is this latest release available in audio format or do you have any other works available on audio? Do your e-books have audio capability? Do you have any in large print?
I know No Safe Haven is available in large print/hardcover.
What has been the most important thing you hope your readers will get from your books and why?
That the joy of the Lord is real. It’s always there. No matter what. It’s our job to grab onto it and hold on!
As you researched your books, did you learn anything that particularly touched your heart?Oh, each project has taught me so much. Mountain Wishes taught me a lot about cancer survivors and my dear friend who passed away.
In this latest work, do you have any topics useful for bibliotherapy, or therapeutic influence through reading about a disorder or situation?
Cancer, cancer survivors, stalking, and many others issues including fear. I know books can be used in healing in so many ways.
