Kim Davis is a Texas soul living in Colorado with her husband, Chase, and their two boys, Knox and Owen. She curates and runs an online boutique called Oh, Sweet Joy! and loves inspiring others to find the beauty in the everyday, especially in their wardrobe. Kim calls herself an "unlikely pastor's wife" to Chase, who is on staff at The Well in Boulder. She's been featured in MOPs magazine, and other publications for creatives. She is currently navigating how to thrive in the tiresome days of motherhood, ministry, and running a business.
IF YOU HAVE EVER FELT LIKE YOU HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER, THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.
In our conversation, Kim talks about why she was hesitant to accept my invitation to be on Momentum and why she ultimately decided to accept. We dig into comparison and shame and some of the ways to fight back against the tapes in our head that tell us we aren’t enough or have nothing to offer.
Kim shares about the evolution of Oh, Sweet Joy!, including a special offer for Momentum listeners! She also tells a story of finding the strength to “choose joy” in her darkest hour. I know you will be encouraged by her honesty, her beautiful imperfections, and how she wants to bring glory to God in all things.
The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
- Psalm 16:6 (ESV)
And, two more on wisdom:
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God,
who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
- James 1:5 (ESV)
For the Lord gives wisdom;
from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
- Proverbs 2:6 (ESV)

“Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.”
