Hi, I’m Kim!
I know what it’s like to feel limited and desire so much more out of life. I know the discouragement that comes from a diagnosis of a chronic illness and a literal mourning for the life we once lived and the life we had planned. I understand how it makes you feel cheated. I’ve been there!
We all have days that drag us down and it seems almost impossible to remain positive. Just know God is aware and cares and there are a host of others out there that understand. Not just show pity, I mean we really get it. We have those days too!
Whatever chronic illness you have, God already knew it was coming. He created you uniquely to be able to live a vibrant life for Him in spite of your illness!
Don’t think it’s possible? Stick around a while. Grab a cup of coffee, tea or cocoa and put your feet up. We’ll open God’s word together and share stories of our lives and how we manage our days. Grace IS Sufficient is a place for you to come, like your own quiet nook, breathe deep and enjoy uplifting conversation!
Here you’ll find resources, tips, tricks, and all things helpful to grow your life into the fulfilling, purpose-filled life the Lord desires for all of us! It’s a place of encouragement. Sure you’ll see posts and information relating to the struggles, hardships, and dark side of chronic illnesses but overall the positive will shine through!
A little about me……
I’m a Christ-follower, flawed, a work in progress, bible study facilitator, writer, blogger, wife of 28 years, mother to two, and grandma to a 5-year-old firecracker born on the fourth of July!
You should probably know a few other things about me. I love the Marvel comics Avenger movies! I’m the youngest of four kids. I have a sarcastic sense of humor. I can eat pizza every day and I have a passion for frozen Coke.
I also happen to have a few chronic illnesses. I have been diagnosed with PCOS, Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Adrenal Fatigue. In 2011, I stepped away from my career in the financial industry to focus on my Lord, my family, and my health. Then on September 20th of 2017, I was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure with an ejection fraction of 20-20%. This is proving to be my biggest battle for sure!
I believe we need to be intentional with our life for Christ. Waking up each morning and just taking life as it hits us isn’t very effective. We can thrive with a plan and a purpose – even in the midst of chronic illness!
We’re going to talk about all that and more!
Are you ready to join me? Let’s go!!
