The book begins with major events in Kim’s childhood, including her life-changing introduction to Jesus. Kim’s parents divorced, and her mother remarried three times. Kim’s first two step-fathers were abusive, though her third step-father was a kind Christian man. One of the most touching parts of the book was when Kim’s little brother, Matt, who had felt the sting of rejection by his biological father, happily announced to the family that his stepfather George was his new daddy now.
I loved reading Kim’s story, and seeing how she landed in ministry and started leading worship. One of my favorite parts in the book was when she talked about how she met her husband, Skyler. Another favorite part was when she talked about her little boys, Wyatt and Bear. The book shows readers that surrendering to God is a courageous thing.
