A LIFE THAT MATTERS - Kimberley Woodhouse - One Free Book

Welcome, Kim. What would you like for our readers to know about you personally?
I love the Lord, my husband, my kids, and I love to write.

Tell us about your family.
My husband and I have been married for 20 years. We have two amazing teenagers, Josh and Kayla. Josh is a creative genius and loves to be dramatic. Kayla is the youngest published full-length novelist from a royalty paying publisher, and has a rare nerve disorder. You may recognize us from TV – we’ve been on a lot of different shows because of Kayla’s rare condition, but we are just a “normal” family. At least, according to my definition of normal. J

Have you written other nonfiction books?
Yes, I have a nonfiction out about our story entitled, Welcome Home: Our Family’s Journey to Extreme Joy. I was also a contributor to Pearl Girls: Encountering Grit, Experiencing Grace.

Do you have any other books in the works right now?
Yes, Kayla and I are working on another project together, and… drumroll, please… I just signed with Bethany House to write with Tracie Peterson. All Things Hidden will release in early 2014. I also have a several other projects in the works, but you’ll have to watch Facebook and our website to keep up with all the craziness J

What kinds of hobbies and leisure activities do you enjoy?
I love to read, take photos, scrapbook, quilt, sew, bead… way too many things. But with Kayla’s issues, we spend a LOT of time inside.

Why did you write the featured book?
Barbour approached me about writing A Life That Matters – and it was an incredible privilege to work on, and challenging as well.

What do you want the reader to take away from the book?
More than anything, I want the reader to take each moment at a time and live their life for the Lord. On this journey, we all have purpose, and we can make it count for Him. Each and every day. Here’s the description from Amazon:

Want to live a purpose-packed life? A Life That Matters will have you jumping into every day with renewed purpose. This self-help-style guide offers practical suggestions—from serve others to forgive, relax, prioritize, and be enthusiastic—that will revitalize the meaning of your life. The seventy entries feature inspiring quotations, applicable scriptures, and useful tips for making these insightful suggestions a part of every day. This uplifting guide also features short biographies of ten inspiring people to encourage you on your journey toward a meaningful life.
