I am so happy to write you this very 1st KSM Newsletter to update you on all that has been happening with the ministry. I can’t believe how much God has done in such a short amount of time! We applied for and received 501(c)(3) Non Profit status and launched the KSM website in early March. I also received my first speaking invitation in March. I spoke at The Rock Mops in Castle Rock and had a fantastic day with all those amazing moms. This summer I spoke and ministered at a local Celebrate Recovery meeting and I was also the Guest Speaker at the Shine Women’s Retreat in Beaver Creek. And another super fun thing I got to do over the summer was to be a guest on The Good News with Angie Austin Radio Show. I was able to share my heart for dreams for KSM and all that God has called me to in ministry. One of the most exciting things that happened recently was that KSM was given an office! One of our donating partners saw that there was a need and felt led to cover that expense and I am so grateful :). Now I am able to meet with people one on one and in private when they want ministry. It is so awesome to have a place to do that and watch God bring healing and encouragement to people who are hurting. In August I attended a One Week Ministry Training School led by Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in California. I learned so much and was able to connect with some amazing leaders from all over the world.
I want to say Thank You SO MUCH to all of you who have prayed for me during this exciting time of new beginnings! I am so grateful for your prayers, your donations, and your encouraging notes and emails. Although is was scary to step out and obey God’s nudging for me to start this ministry, He has confirmed His heart to me over and over through many of you :).
Please continue to keep KSM in your prayers. One of the major things for the ministry that the Lord has put on my heart is to open a Transition Home for girls and women being released from incarceration. I have been ministering at our local jail for several years now and I know firsthand what a huge need this is in our county. I have recently been in contact with the officials there about opening a Transition Home where the ladies could come and receive ministry, discipleship, GED classes, job training, and a loving and nurturing new beginning. Listen friends, Jesus made it clear when He was here on earth that He is ALL ABOUT redemption and restoration. That is my heart for those who have no safe place to go after they are released from court ordered incarceration. Although we are only in the foundational planning stages, we could use your support! We need financial donations, prayers for direction and structure, and once it gets past the “planning phase” we will need lots of volunteers. So please prayerfully consider how you can help this dream become a reality :).
I love and appreciate you all very much.
Love and Hugs,
