Inspiring women to glorify God
Kim, I have seen this video for the first time this weekend. I am seeing first glimpses of behavior in me that have been running my husband down instead of admiring him. I am going to try to get your book. Please pray that I will stick with this and not ignore it during this busy holiday season coming up. I want to be God’s woman.
I have signed up for your blogs to come to my email.
Thank you for sharing your heart. I am praying for you to press in deeply to Christ and ask Him for grace and help to love your husband well. I pray that you will not lose heart in making tough choices to walk in humility, patience, and gentleness.
Cry out to the One who is able to accomplish more than we can ask or think (Eph. 3:20–21).
So glad you’re getting the daily email. Hope you will share how God is working.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for letting God use you in Miami. I signed up for the conference at CBC because I had gone for the past 3 years. I did not even know the theme or book you would be discussing. The first evening of the conference…WOW! God began tearing away the layers of resentment, some that I hadn’t even realized was eating at my herat. Your video testimony made me realize that my husband wasn’t to blame for all that was happening in our relationship. My husband and I are both involved in different ministries in our church. He is great at where the Lord is using him and I believe the Lord is using me to bless others, in the children’s ministry. At home, another story, very similar to yours. He works long hours and I am the one who makes most decisions when he is not home. When he is home, I know that I need to turn over the control to him but I was finding it difficult to let him do things his way, instead of mine! This was true with the upbringing of our 3 home-schooled children, as well. This conference made me realize that I was undermining ALL he was trying to accomplish with our home. I was angry because he wasn’t praying with me even though I had told him MANY times that I needed for us to pray together. After much prayer, I shared your video with him and to apoplogized for my selfish and controlling attitude. I know we have a long way to go but I am confident that God has wonderful plans for our marriage. Thank you for allowing God to use you to open my eyes and heart!
Thank you so much for sharing with me how God worked in your heart this weekend. I am so thankful that you’ve had this conversation with your husband. Please stay in touch and let me hear how things are going. I pray God uses the book in a powerful way in your marriage!
Blessings, friend ~
I am so blessed listening to you, I am a young pastor’s wife(6 months into marriage) and your sharing got me emotional. Its been a different transition unlike what my mind had set when I decided to get married, still young, listening to you got me to want to get back onto what being a wife, a helper and a companion is about, Thank you so much Kim
Interested to hear more.
You are welcome, Betty ~

Thank you for coming to LA this past weekend. Your sessions were wonderful and I was so excited to get your book and I look forward to seeing what the Lord has for me through it. Thank you for your vulnerable heart to share your walk with the Lord. The best part about the weekend for me, was the unbelievable way you quoted scripture. You have re-inspired me to memorize and meditate. May our precious Savior bless you, your family and ministry and thank you again for being such a Fierce Woman!!

Hello, DeAnna ~
Thanks for leaving a comment, I hope you’ll plug into the daily blog, would love to have you join us here!
Beautiful video! I’ve listened to several radio interviews and bought both books. My husband I will start reading them soon. This topic is not new to us, as God revealed these very things in our marriage quite awhile ago. I can relate SO much! Even to the degree of telling my husband how/where to park the car. 😉 I still want to, but I’ve learned to keep quiet. It does not matter! Thank you for your boldness in sharing your testimony and may the Lord continue to bless you, your marriage, and your ministry!
Hello, Teresa ~
I’m so glad that God has been opening your eyes to these things. He is faithful. I hope you and your husband will be encouraged and find practical help as you work through the chapters (hopefully together) of the books.
Let me hear how it goes!
Thank you for sharing your story. When I initially listened to your story on Family Life Today broadcast, I had already been considering leaving my husband. But after hearing you talk about how God dealt with you and showed you YOURSELF, I became so convicted. And even though I was convicted, and knew that I, too, had demeaned my husband, I continued to believe that all that we were going through was still his fault because I felt that he wasn’t being a man and a spiritual leader. Long story short, that same weekend an incident occurred that brought great havoc and distress in our home, and my husband began to say some of the same things that Leroy had stated; and the Lord brought back to my remembrance that broadcast. So after the “smoke cleared” at my home, and after much weeping, I repented to God and soon afterwards, apologized to my husband. He in turn apologized to me. We still have a ways to go, but we’re on the right track. I’ve decided to love him through this so God can deal with him (and me) and bring all of this together and truly make our union as one.
Kimberly, I am interested in knowing if you and your husband conduct marriage counseling services or marriage conferences. I would love for my husband and I to attend. Please advise at your earliest. Thank you so much!
Kim and LeRoy, I Thank you for your testimony,
I so relate to this.
In fact it brought me to tears.
I have become almost immobilized.
Both my wife and I have a lot of pain,
I have done things to hurt her, I’m not innocent, but I feel so controlled. She says
The the same thing about wanting a spiritual leader, but criticizes every move as I try.
I’m even afraid to show her this testimony because I shared Meg Miller testimony with her and
She said she was off base, and doesn’t get it.
I would appreciate your prayers, I don’t want to give up hope,
I’d love to watch your video’s but all I see is pictures without links. How can I view them?
