Jimmy K & Miss Beth

The names listed above may not mean anything to you, but they mean the world to me. Something drew Chris and me to them and them to us before we ever knew what it was.  Call it a kindred spirit or divine flow.  Call it whatever you want.  It was just there. The day before Chris’ confession of pornography addiction and adultery, Miss Beth, as many of us affectionately call her, stopped by my house with some flowers.  We chatted briefly.  She is one of those women who is so in tune with the Spirit of God.  When she says something, I listen.  I have never EVER heard her speak negatively about someone or share gossip.  And trust me, I KNOW she has plenty to share!  But, she doesn’t.  She holds each and every confession and fragile heart in her very safe hands.  She is the real deal.  A woman of utmost integrity and honor.  A mother to two, a grandmother to three, the wife of one…she is cherished. She is my girl. Jim, or Jimmy K, is pretty much up there on my list of the greatest men in the world.  He literally oozes wisdom.  I remember sitting in his presence hour after hour gleaning insight and just experiencing peace.  He has such a calming presence.  When we were faced with a stressful situation, there was no visible fretting on his part.  A simple, “Well, I tell you what we’re gonna do” response that was exactly what we needed.  Those who know him see the wealth in him. He’s tried and true. This amazing couple walked us through the most devastating time in our lives but also the most healing time.  They invited us into their home on a weekly basis…shared their children with us…celebrated their holidays with us…prayed for and with us…protected us…never gave up on us…always believed in us. Always. When I talk about Jim and Beth in this way I cannot help but be overcome with emotion.  My heart is full of gratitude and my eyes are wet with tears.  I wrote a chapter in my book about them and could say a million thank you’s to them and it wouldn’t be enough. Here’s #243… Thank you, Jim and Beth.  My heart adores you. Is there someone you need to thank?

  1. I need to thank my back yard neighbor. She is always there for me when I need a shoulder to cry on, a break from everyday stress or just to have a good laugh. Her advice is always honest and to the point, no sugar coating it, I love her for that. She has an intuition about me that sometimes stops me in my tracks. It’s as if she can read my mind and see into my soul even when I’m cooped up inside my house. She is a friend, a sister, a confidant. She is wise beyond her 38 years on earth and I could never thank her enough for just being her. Thanks Cindy.

  2. I Love hearing about God moving through people to reach others. Im still looking to find what my God given talent is, but I feel Im getting closer. Especially by reading inspirational things such as this…

  3. Wow! What a blessing you and Chris are to me and Miss Beth. I could write a book about the blessing of spending those days with you both and how we got to experience what would happen when 2 people truly submit to the Holy Spirit for healing and restoration. We were blessed to watch both of you do whatever it took and then went so far above and beyond our dreams of using your experience to bless others.

    Dang we miss you guys! Our love and appreciation for you and all that God is doing in and through you is a constant source of blessing.

    We love you so much!

  4. You are so precious!
    At the time I didn’t know what “it’s bigger than ________(a particular role)” meant. What an amazing thing to get to watch you two take the high road to healing and blessing passing through you and Chris AND ON TO COUNTLESS OTHERS AND THE NEXT GENERATION…for the Kingdom of Almighty God! (And it ain’t over yet, sistah!)
    Love you so…

  5. I would like to thank Miss Beth too. I feel guilty for stealing her away! Everything you said is so very very true.

    I would also like to thank KZ. She lives in Turkey now, but she was one of the strongest influences on my Christian life yet. Amazing woman!

  6. I pray that God would send a couple such as this that would be able to reach a part of my husband’s heart that will allow God to reach him. I pray so intently for this…

  7. I can feel you sister but miss my beloved husband the most whom the laws of man has forcifully separated us for almost three years now. How destructive the laws of man could be.
