Description


In her young formative years, Kimberly Molyneaux's life was filled with constant chaos, moving from place to place, having lived in more than sixty different places by the time she was eighteen years old. When she was seven years old while living in a foster home, she had a "spiritual experience," a conversation with Jesus. She asked Jesus the perplexing questions, "of who am I" and "why am I here." From that conversation, she came away with a knowing that she was indeed loved by Jesus, and she would never be alone, that Jesus, (later, she realized the conversation was with her own Spirit), was always with her. By the age of nineteen, Kimberly had been abused, sexually, physically and emotionally by several of her own caretakers. And at the age of seventeen she became pregnant and dropped out of high school. At age fourteen she had begun escaping and surviving these challenges by writing poetry. By the time she was twenty-three, she had married for the second time, to her "Prince Charming." She and her former husband chose to have four more children, moving several times for his career and settling down in her dream home. Even with having all the material things, a home, a husband, a family, a church home, she still felt like something was missing from her life. Instead of feeling blissful, happy and joy, she struggled with depression, suicidal thoughts and a deep desire to know why she felt so empty and lost inside. She sought out ways to feed aching her soul through more religion, shopping, alcohol, and various destructive behaviors. Finally, she realized that there must be another way, another path to find the missing pieces of her soul. Through years of writing poetry, reading self-help and spiritual books, she realized that what she was searching for was her own sense of self. Kimberly invites you to take a peek into her poetry memoir, to feel her pain, feel her joy and with hopes that you, the reader can find healing and a sense of self as well, on your own pa
