ABOUT Grace BECOMES Her
THE FOUNDER & HOW THIS ALL CAME ABOUT
Kimberly Lowe is a mom, wife, and businesswoman. She is also a retired professional ballroom dancer, amateur foodie, armchair movie critic, and closet comedienne. But, these are on her good days. Diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos (EDSh), she is a life-long sufferer. She battles migraines, severe leg pain, joint arthritis, poor circulation (which leads to limb numbness and hypersensitivity to cold), and a back that just won't keep up (pun intended). Pain is the enemy. But, she considers all of it the "thorn in her side". If she were at 100% all of the time, no one would be able to keep up. Her down time gives everyone else the chance to catch up. She knows what it's like to be strong, confident and successful. But, she also knows what it feels like to be frail, weak, totally dependent on everyone else, counting the seconds as they pass by. When asking the Lord one day what she was suppose to be doing, how was she suppose to live her life from her bed, in pain all the time, she heard one word. "Share." She knew what He meant. There were others out there that needed to know that they were not alone. She has also been through more than her share of trauma. She knows what it's like to be beaten down, left with nothing, in the wrong place at the wrong time, trusting in people instead of Christ, a sinner, fully broken, yet saved by Grace. We all can come together and share our stories and support each other. There is no judgement or shame here. Only women lifting each other up right where they are.
LIFE IN PROGRESS
Do you ever see those signs that say, "Work in Progress"? I am a "Work in Progress". A "Construction Underway". A "Journey Ongoing". But, I feel like "Life in Progress" fits much better because it speaks to something larger going on. We all have our own life story. I am looking forward to you hearing mine.
PROVERBS 31 MINISTRIES
Real women offering real-life solutions to those striving to maintain life’s balance, in spite of today’s hectic pace and cultural pull away from godly principles. Wherever a woman may be on her spiritual journey, Proverbs 31 Ministries exists to be a trusted friend who understands the challenges she faces, walks by her side, encouraging her as she walks toward the heart of God.
Nadia Bolz-Weber is the author of three NYT bestselling memoirs: "Pastrix; The Cranky, Beautiful Faith Of A Sinner & Saint" (2013), Accidental Saints; "Finding God In All The Wrong People" (2015) and "SHAMELESS; A Sexual Reformation" (2019). She writes and speaks about personal failings, addiction, grace, faith, and really whatever the hell else she wants to. She always sits in the corner with the other weirdoes. “It may feel as though some of us have been relegated to the corners, but here’s the thing: from the corners, I can see the whole room. I love the corners. I always have. It is where I will always choose to sit, because I love outcasts, queers and the girls who talk too loud. I love humor that comes out of lives that have not been easy. I love sober drunks, single dads, sex workers and the guy who lost a leg in the war. These are my people. So here’s what I hope: that what is posted here is water, God willing, for those planted in the corners”.
