Meet our Founder
Kim Kimble

In 2018, God spoke to Kim’s heart that women, no matter their age or background need “Hope.” Hope is an experience to feel loved and nurtured by their creator and find common ground with other women who do life together and say “you’re never alone.”
As it says in Hebrews 6:19 “We have THIS hope, as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure”.
This ministry and women’s conference became a light for women illuminating their path to that anchor, that security, and that refuge. His name is Jesus and His love for us is unmatched, unchanging, and unending.

Kim is a realtor in the Johnson County area and serves on the board of NextStep Women's Center.
