When it comes to obesity and shyness issues, many authors are like travel agents; they can tell you where to go, but have never been there. But Kimberly Taylor has the wisdom of a tour guide. Not only has she experienced the struggles of these issues firsthand, but she can help others overcome them -- and stay free for life! Kimberly Taylor has 15 years of health education and training experience through formal nursing practice (as an R.N. for many years) and research on the relationship between nutrition, physical activity, and chronic disease. Kim has been featured in Prevention Magazine, Essence Magazine and on CBN's The 700 Club. Kim's exhorts people of faith to become good stewards of all the resources God has given to them, including time, money, talents, and physical health. "I am passionate about empowering others to adopt healthy lifestyles so they can fulfill their God-given purpose," she says. "My dream is for God's people to truly stand apart because we are healthy, prosperous and living the abundant life to which we are called. But before we can transform our bodies and finances, we must first renew our minds. I want non-believers to look at us and want what we have: financial, spiritual, mental, and physical wholeness. Then when they ask us what we are doing differently, we are ready to tell them about Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith."
