Kim Blackaby

Who I Am

  • I am Kim Blackaby.
  • I am a wife and mother of three children.
  • I have been a Christ-follower since the age of 15 when I met the unconditional love and abundant grace of Jesus. I didn't just wade in, I dove headfirst into that ocean and a life surrendered to following Him.
  • I grew up on the prairies of Canada and was introduced to Jesus at a church pastored by Henry Blackaby who later went on to write a book called Experiencing God that has influenced countless Christians around the globe. That pastor would one day be my father-in-law.
  • At the age of 20, at a college retreat, alongside a lake and illuminated by Heaven’s fireworks, the Northern lights, I heard God’s call into ministry. What that would look like and the many forms it would take were yet to be discovered.
  • It took me first to help plant a church in a small Saskatchewan city and then to the role of a pastor’s wife, Bible teacher, women’s ministry leader and now writer and speaker. It took me from small assignments to larger ones and from Canada to an international church in Norway and assignments around the world. It took me closer to the heart of God.

What I Love

  • Prairie skies
  • Morning coffee
  • City lights seen from a height
  • The sound of children laughing
  • Experiencing new cultures and new parts of God’s wondrous creation
  • My living rescuer, companion and friend, Jesus Christ.
  • The Body of Christ, His Bride, His Church and all its many expressions
  • A life transformed by the living water of the Holy Spirit
  • Hearing YOUR story

What I Do

  • I teach women how to draw life-giving water in order to lead God-centered, Spirit-filled spiritually and emotionally healthy lives.
  • I cannot change and transform your life but I can lead you to the One who can.
  • Meet me at the river and we’ll talk.

Why I Do what I Do

  • Because there is no greater joy than riding in the middle of the current of God’s activity in the hearts and lives of women around the world.
  • Because Psalm 46 tells me that we were meant to live in the power, the strength and the joy of that mighty current and too many women are settling for far less.

“There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at the break of day.” Psalm 46:4-5
