Showcasing the confidence she's gathered from her own life journey, Kim Gravel--beloved QVC star and creator of Belle by Kim Gravel and Belle Beauty--invites you to look at yourself with a fresh new lens, encouraging you to start where you are and become the person you were meant to be.
Bold. Audacious. Warm. Funny. Real. These are just a few words that describe Kim Gravel, entrepreneur, podcaster, TV personality, and host of several number-one hit shows on QVC. The minute she says, "Hey, ya'll," you can feel her authentic personality shining through--but she felt pressure to conform for a stretch of her life. She hid her light and lost her shine.
In the aftermath of the pressures of the pageant scene and a toxic failed marriage, Kim found herself alone in a run-down apartment, and it was there that she started to grow closer to God. In the quiet of her tiny Pepto Bismol–pink apartment, she could hear the still, small voice of God--and she listened. And as she listened, her life started to change and she began to discover her purpose, including her first gig as a talk-show host at a community TV station just a few blocks from her apartment. Her purpose was just steps away!
As Kim says, "Struggling doesn't have to be your badge of honor. No one wants an ill-fitting life. You want to live a custom-made life designed to fit you perfectly….You are beautiful, loved, strong, smart, one of a kind, unique, created for a purpose, protected, empowered, cared for, and important. If your life is not getting bigger, it's time to change it. Reimagine your life. It's time to start co-creating your life with the Creator. It doesn't matter what age you are. You're never too old to think differently. The best life is ahead of you, not behind you."
Now Kim's mission as a global voice is to build up women with words of encouragement, reminding them to trust God, stop struggling, embrace the beauty of who they are and step into their power and purpose. Collecting Confidence will allow readers to
- accept the beauty of who they are,
- glean empowerment from life's lowest moments,
- experience biblical wisdom blended with laugh-out-loud humor,
- and be inspired by no-holds-barred, relatable stories.
If you've lost your way and forgotten who you are, this book is for you. It's time to be still, listen to God, and start collecting confidence one step, one lesson, one experience, and even one mistake at a time. As Kim says, "You can't be authentic in the world if you can't be real with yourself." Collecting Confidence is a sumptuous collection of life experiences, God's blessings, and hard-earned wisdom. It's time to shine.
