Sometimes we must risk undoing who we’ve become in order to conceive the life we desire. -- Kimberly Davidson
Unleash the Power of a Renwed Mind
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect (Romans 12:2).
There is no freedom without a change of mind. Brain research has found that our thoughts and beliefs affect our physical, mental, relational and spiritual health. Kimberly tackles the spiritual roots of negative thinking and behavioral patterns. She combines the latest in brain physiology with the Word of God. She teaches women how to “take every thought captive,” renew her mind and put on the mind of Christ. Her message walks the reader through how her mind can be restored—turned back on—to the way God designed it to be.

We see life through our own personal “colored lenses” which influences what we say and do today. It is our truth, ourreality. Unless an outsider steps in, distortions in our belief system and faulty self-talk become ingrained and set us up to act in ways that guarantee the repetition of destructive patterns. And nothing will ever change until a force—God—enters our lives and frees our minds from untruths. Only He can enable us to see the world through His pure and true lens.
The reason our thought life is so important to God is that our thoughts are the first to be triggered in the chain reaction of our souls. Our thoughts stir up our emotions à stirs up desires à produces actions. If we can catch a negative thought before its first triggered, then we’ve got a good chance of being able toprevent some bad behaviors and sin from occurring in our lives.
Most of us have been ignorant to what the mind does and how it works—and to the fact that every Christian has been given the “mind of Christ.” What does that mean? It means God’s supernatural thoughts, or His holy Word, is accomplished in our lives by His supernatural power. Because of this ignorance, we haven’t been able to use this incredible powerful gift God has given us. The Bible says, “My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6).
Lack of knowledge is the reason we believe untruths and get stuck. Knowledge is the investigation of the truth. Scientists say that our brains are wired to take in different streams of information from the eyes: One, for purposes of understanding and knowing, and two, for the purpose of behaving accordingly. The first stream—knowledge—is conscious, but the second stream—behavior—is more automatic and unconscious. In other words: Knowledge leads to Behavior. Knowledge of Jesus leads to Christlike behavior.
Kimberly would love to impart this knoweldge to your ladies. Invite her speak at your women's event and find out how God can
deliver true mind change, freedom, healing and joy.
To the Emotionally Hurt and Abused
Eleanor Roosevelt said, “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
We live in a culture where sexual freedom reigns, and pain and exploitation is rampant. Multitudes of women have emotional scars and deeply wounded souls. Millions of Christian women, of all ages, are trapped in pain, broken families, economic misery, depression, physical illnesses, emotional disorders, fear, and addiction—all of which create harmful thoughts literally embedded in their minds.
Did you know:
- Kaitlin is emotionally distant from her husband because he hits her regularly?
- Missy missed this past Mother’s Day service because she didn’t want to be reminded of the child she aborted?
- Briana feels inadequate and chooses not to volunteer for any job because key caregivers in her early life told her she was stupid and worthless?
- Alana won’t attend a Father’s Day service because she doesn’t want to be reminded of the father who molested her?
- Lorie won’t go to an evening event because she’s scared to go outside, for fear she may be raped again … and that she chose a lesbian lifestyle out of safety and pain?
- Tanya didn’t show up Wednesday night because she chose to view pornography sites that she just can’t get enough of?
- Karla gave up her dream of being a missionary because she believes God can’t use “trash”?
- Diedre wants to divorce her husband because he forces her to act out demeaning sexual acts?
- Angie feels inferior and ashamed because her husband told her he was only interested in men?
These scenarios represent common issues in our churches; and women who are wounded and damaged—yet may be labeled as “angry,” “indifferent,” “promiscuous,” “a drama queen,” or “bitter.” These hurting hearts sit in our pews and youth groups. Gripped by fear, guilt, anger, and shame, they hope to find healing in our churches, rather than indifference and condemnation. They need the biblical guidance found in God’s Word.
Kimberly specializes in sensitive speaking to the brokenhearted—to emotionally hurt and sexually abused women. She shares her years of experience and knowledge of Scripture with the walking wounded. Every woman will receive help from her counsel.
