“Aim at Heaven and you will get earth ‘thrown in:’ aim at earth and you will get neither.”

C.S. Lewis

Hello, I’m Kim. Welcome!

If you’re anything like me, you find yourself all too often mired in the details and desires of this world, the fading world, instead of living the wayfaring life of one destined for the unfading world, eternity. Mountain top experiences avalanche down into dirty dishes, disobedient children, dire circumstances.

But I am convinced that even as we trudge through the drudgery and pain of this life, we can live eternity now.

I want to be Aiming at Heaven, even from the depths. Christ brought heaven to earth so we can live eternity now. That’s the path I want to travel.

My heart’s desire is for this slice of the ‘interweb’ (as my husband calls it 🙂 ) to be a place of encouragement, rest, support, and truth written in love to keep us all Aiming at Heaven!

I am a child of God, a wife to my pastor husband, mother to three girls and two boys. I don’t like coffee, but I do like tea (especially Chai – I’ve even tried making my own blend)! I sometimes feel pressure to keep up with the latest Christian literature, but my soul feels more at home with those thinkers who have gone before me. I love music – my piano saved my life (I’ll write about that someday). I get excited about discipleship and God’s Word. I like to run, but I’m not sure how much longer my body will afford me this pleasure. In theory I love organization, but in practicality it just doesn’t jive with life right now – five kids under 12 + hospitality + never ending action = a fair amount of chaos. 😉

Other things about me: I play fantasy football (my team name is madrecinco), like to cook and love to read. My favorite colors are deep shades of green and purple. I recently took up the hobby of pyrography (wood burning). Most days I don’t wear makeup and I’ve engaged the help of several trusted friends and Pinterest in order to dress myself half-way decently. I have traveled the depths of depression and anxiety and am learning to embrace God’s wisdom for healing in those areas. I also have the tremendous privilege of being a certified Biblical Counselor.

I’d love to get to know you too! Click on contact above and let’s chat.


“The more intelligently and believingly  we abide in Him as our redemption, the more shall we experience, even here, of ‘the powers of the world to come.’ As our communion with Him becomes more intimate and intense, and we let the Holy Spirit reveal Him to us in His heavenly glory, the more we realize how the life in us is the life of One who sits upon the throne of heaven. We feel the power of an endless life working in us. We taste the eternal life. We have the foretaste of the eternal glory.”
