Need hope? I’ve got a story for you

I am a storyteller whose passion is giving voice to God’s love. Along with being a writer, speaker and singer, I’m also a wife and mother, a sister and friend, and a truly avid weekend golfer. I will probably never win a championship tournament–but I’ve learned golf, like life, is a game of recovery. No one has every played a perfect round, yet we all keep coming back for more!

The riddle I’m trying to solve is how brokenness reveals life’s beauty through the love of Jesus Christ. This mission has found expression in conference workshops for recovery after abortion, in college classrooms teaching storytelling, in prison day rooms sharing prayers, in singing to lonely hearts tucked away in nursing homes, on public speaking platforms, and, for over thirty years, through broadcast communications.

Along the way I’ve also had the deep joys of marriage and family and many, many challenging and humbling rounds of golf.

The story I’ve told in all these places is that God’s love heals our hearts as soothing medicine after fatal mistakes of our own making.

I truly believe the story of his love will actually heal our wounded world one heart at a time. My deepest desire is that you would be inspired to trust that God redeems our worst mistakes and deepest hurts for his greatest glory.

I share this hope-fueled truth through writingbroadcasting and story and song events.

Whether you are a wife, mom, sister, daughter, or simply someone’s friend, I’m sure we have lots in common. I love coffee and chocolate–the darker the better for both. My twin passions for golf and guitar have shown me that  you can learn to do just about anything, if you’re willing to not do it well in the beginning! My oh-so-steep professional learning curve began in radio while I was known as Kim Jeffries. I moved from being a dj and music director to hosting roles in morning radio and then television news before hosting talk shows for both general market and Christian radio formats. The best moments through it all have been the fantastic fun of interviewing wise and wonderful guests–check out our current line-up and archives at Cradle My Heart Radio here.

Stories are so powerful. When I tell our stories in the pages of Cradle My HeartFinding God’s Love after Abortion, or on our weekly radio show, I picture a world of women and men healed after that life-altering mistake. Drawing on my faith and my own experience of child loss through choice I offer practical steps for releasing the grief and guilt and walking in newness of life. And because I know and appreciate the special struggles men face, I want you to receive a free copy of my ebook for men Someone Stronger when you provide your email address in the subscribe form in the upper right corner of this page.

And in the end I hope our stories prevent anyone else from suffering as we have–I want to encourage and empower you to make a better choice.

I’d love to hear from you! Please send me a confidential note or vm at 800-811-3003–to share your hurt or unburden your heart or just to tell me your story.

God cares, and so do I.
