I have been reading through your book I'm Beautiful? Why Can't I See It? and Wow! It is perfect for this group! Kimberly, you did such a great job a identifying the root of the problem as well as revealing the true source of complete healing - Jesus. Your constant use of Scripture is exactly the kind of resource I want to use in this group, because the Truth of God's Word was the key to my own recovery - I know it will be for others as well. - Rae Lynn De Angelis, founder, Living in Truth Ministries

"I wanted to express my gratitude for your book "I'm Beautiful, Why Can't I See It". I began reading this book about one month ago after struggling with an eating disorder and body image issues since I was 13 (now am 26). I had been filled with hopelessness-I thought I would never be through with this or "normal". Now, every morning, I pick up the book and my bible and my heart is filled with hope. God is really using the book to speak truth into my life." -- Nicole T.

"Absolutely amazing book! Extremely helpful in terms of dealing with eating disorders with God's strength instead of one's own strength." -- Amanda

"Motivating the reader to journal their thoughts and be reflective is a great thing. Many woman never get to psychotherapy and this is the next best replacement." -- Christina K.

"I never have committed to a Bible study before. I have always looked for other spiritual books to answer my void. Today, His Word, through your guidance gave birth to an enriching understanding and way to heal. I am amazed that I had no anxiety or desires to eat more than I did. It was so at peace and 'normal'. This would not have happened if I was not doing your work. Your book works. I can say that with all my heart as I am learning to lessen my mind with 'me'. I guess I'm giving the true Holy Spirit room to enter and manifest a miracle. I send you love and thankfulness." -- Gail B.

"Your devotional study has been encouraging me and helping me place God at the center of my recovery from my eating disorder. It is the hardest thing I have ever done, and I am grateful that I found it." -- Kara D.

"I am certain that I am chosen by God to do this I'm God's GIrl? Why Can't I Feel It? study. I am finding your writing style and dialogue resonating such a loving lyric. I have been on a heart lifted journey and am already soaking up so much hope, love and faith that this is a path that will work for me. I can feel the light, and the reading has opened up such trust and hope in Father God." -- Janice F.

This book (God's Girl) was also a year long devotional, and I bought this one because I read another devotional by the same author and really enjoyed it. This book is targeted towards people with depression, but it can definitely help anyone who is simply struggling with something in their life. When I started this book I was in a much different place than I am now after reading it. This book is a great reminder on the little things that can help you enjoy life!-- Arial

"I read your study (God's Girl) and it was great. It helps me a great deal to have someone bring the Bible to me in terms of my eating disorder, and to draw out the relevant teachings and verses. It was very helpful." -- Elaine S.

"I believe that God lead me to your study, as it was exactly what I had been searching for and needed to help in my recovery. I now see that having faith in God and turning to Scripture is the only way to get better and live a meaningful life. Thank you so much, Kim. You have helped me and no doubt countless of others who are struggling with eating disorders." -- Leanne K.

We are wonderfully complex, as God created us, and this book, Torn Between Two Masters, puts it out there. Kimberly wrote a fantastic book that truly opened my eyes to things about myself. I read the book and created a lesson plan for the group of high school women, but I gained so much from it! Kids or no kids...read the book. You will gain much for yourself and all those in your life. -- Jody

"Thank you so much, Kim, for creating Olive Branch Outreach. I have been thinking about starting an eating disorder support group in my area (Stratford, Ontario, Canada) that is based on Christian principles and the Bible. I was wondering if you could be give me any ideas or direct me to any resources that would help me structure a group. Thank you so much Kim for all of your work in this area. You are truly an inspiration!" -- Carol H.

"My name is Maria. I am from the Philippines. At 15 I started binging and purging. I thought I was ugly and fat. I have the wrong self-image and insecurity. Everyday I pray that I will overcome temptation with God's grace. I want to start a support group in our Church. I hope you can help with this endeavor. To God be the glory." -- Maria D.

"We really love your study. It has blessed us so. You have done such a good job of including unique Scriptures. It is very well thought out and I believe life changing. The residents really love the class and wish it were longer. We have a "Healthy Eating" group of staff that wants to use your study too!" -- Colleen Barker, Administrator; Jerri Ann Salvato, Lead Program Implementer, Shepherd's Door for Women and Children, Portland, Oregon

Kim, when you sent over your manuscript, I was very intrigued and had to read it when I got it. I also went to your website and was very impressed with your ministry and faith. Every woman in the office has been looking it over and we all feel that this is a really important message to get out there! -- Tate Publishing

"It is with anticipation that I will recommend this study (I'm God's Girl?) as an adjunct to psychotherapy. Anticipation that God will use it as an offering of hope, empowerment, guidance, recognition of value and nurturance to those whom will seek His face as a means of release from discouragement and depression." -- Dr. Laura Roberts, Cornerstone Clinical Services, Portland, Oregon

"The content is excellent. I liked the bite sized bits of material because I could "chew" on one idea at a time. You are changing the future of my generation. Your writing is bridging the gap between this generation and hope. You're like a loudspeaker, getting people's attention, getting them involved, and rescuing the hiding, hurting people." - Kat M.

"I love it! This devotional is practical, down to earth and enhances spiritual growth. - Adele Hooker, Minister, Retired

As someone who has suffered from an eating disorder for over twenty years, my bookshelves are full of self-help books. This book is different. Kimberly Davidson shares the only way to true healing: a relationship with God through his son, Jesus Christ. I've learned through this long journey that only God can fill those dark places in our lives. His Spirit will fill you as food never can. The result will be peace and joy rather than the shame and guilt food causes. Read this book and let God speak to you through it. I can't recommend this book highly enough. -- Melrose

After dealing with an eating disorder for most of my life and admitting it to no one, even myself most of the time, a friend and mentor finally convinced me to join a new bible study taking place at church based on the book, I'm Beautiful? Why Can't I See It?. This book, and the study that took place surrounding it, transformed my life. Kimberly Davidson writes from a place of personal knowledge and allows her own failings to be on display for all to see so that others may learn how to deal with the pain that so often accompanies an eating disorder. Her writing was, in my life, a perfect example of 2 Corinthians 1:3-4. She allowed the comfort she received from God while dealing with her own eating disorder to flow through her words into the lives of many other hurting women. --Amanda

Amazing, life changing books. I highly recommend this to everyone who has ever struggled with addiction or self image issues. Be prepared for God to do a major work in your life if you truely open up and take an honest look at yourself. -- Missy

I was buying various Christian self help books, this one touched me more than any of the others. I have been struggling with an low-self esteem and bad eating habits for over 5 years and this book opens your eyes and helps you see things in a different perspective. An amazing helpful book! -- Whitney

Toss Out Toxic Thoughts

Millions of women today are in desperate need of healing from destructive thoughts and emotions: anxiety, fear, jealousy, doubt, perfectionism, anger and depression. Our mind affects our whole being. Research shows that approximately 87% of illnesses can be attributed to our thought life. Our attitudes are important to health and success in life. We cannot live the life God intended, a life of freedom and joy, without a change of mind. Drawing from personal and ministerial experience, women's pastor Kimberly Davidson will lead you on a life-changing journey where you will learn how to confront and conquer harmful thought patterns and behavior.
Toxic thoughts and emotions, which Kimberly calls mindholds, can be God's way of telling us we have some serious things to deal with; things that are holding us back. Because emotions and behaviors involve a complex interplay between the heart, the mind and the body, it benefits us to know how our mind is influenced and how our brain works. In this book you will be given proven techniques to optimize heart and mind, even brain function. By implementing R-E-S-I-S-T, you can experience true and powerful mind change, restoring the new mind and nature Christ died to give you!

"This is your BEST! I love it. I'm very proud of your work. Be blessed." ~ Dr. Gregory. Jantz, The Center, Edmonds, Washington

break free. get out of your pit.Experience True Freedom: 3 CD Audio Set Most of us have wondered: "God says I am a new creation in Christ (2 Cor. 5:17). Why don't I feel like it?" Christ came to set us free—not free to do what we want, but he has freed us to do the impossible. Through the power of the Holy Spirit we can live selfishly and dream big, fulfilling our God-given destiny! The apostle Paul reiterated over and over that the key to Christlike transformation is to abandon everything connected with our old way of life. Instead, we are to put on an entirely new way of life, renewing our attitudes and thoughts until they reproduce God's character in us. His message describes a battle for our mind, heart and body. Today, scientists confirm that every thought and behavior involves a complex interplay between the heart, the mind and the body. We do not merely experience anger in our minds, we feel it biologically in our body. If we were to look at our brain we may even see a dark abscess caused by the stronghold of anger. There was not only a spiritual reason for Paul's battle cry, but a psychological and biological reason.   In these three sessions, Kimberly's objective is to point the audience to the one who has the ability to literally open their mind and heart, and break every stronghold, ultimately leading to FREEDOM: thinking, feeling, and living better.

  • Freedom through Forgiveness
  • Freedom through Knowledge
