About Me

vow renewal Hi, I’m Kim. Thanks for stopping by!

Several years ago, I got interested in the subject of modesty and did a ton of reading on the subject, including a LOT of Christian women’s blogs. I still find them interesting and inspiring, but sometimes these supermom blogs can have the same the same sort of depressing after-effect that beauty and fashion magazines tend to have on us average Janes. Next to paragons of any sort, we can feel a little inadequate by comparison, right? Well, we need to just get over that. I’m not perfect and you’re not perfect ( models, interior decorators and supermoms aren’t, either, BTW), but let’s just keep putting one foot in front of the other anyway, doing the best we can.

Some stuff about me: I am from Georgia but I live in Florida. My friends in Florida know me as a Christian while my friends in Georgia would mostly snicker fall down on the floor and laugh uncontrollably at the very idea! ( I wasn’t just an average heathen, I was a really bad one. But that’s OK, people change. Sometimes more than once!) Back in the day, I was once divorced; but in the present day I’ve been married almost twenty years to my best friend, despite what must have seemed like our best efforts to screw it up sometimes. (Every day I look at him and and I’m so thankful we’re still together.)  I have known the joy of raising two children and the sorrow of losing three. I’ve gone through times of faith and times of unbelief. I’ve gone through stages of debauchery and doing whatever I pleased, and other stages of trying to “live right.” I always failed horribly at the “living right,” and then got so discouraged that I threw in the towel many times and went back to my worst behavior. But nowadays I look at it like a diet (which I also stink at!). Being imperfect is no reason to give up altogether.

    I love your honesty and transparency. You sound like a really neat lady-someone I’d hang out with—in both Georgia AND Florida. And I’m sorry for your losses. I cannot even imagine..
