Beloved In 2014, during times of prayer, the Lord revealed to Kim White the need for a women’s ministry that focused on moms with young children. Kim asked Leslie Bays and Kara Livingston to join her in praying for the Lord’s perfect will. They sought the Lord by meeting weekly; studying Scripture and praying together.
They soon believed that God wanted them to follow the Tutus 2 model: mature women mentoring younger women. The Lord brought a group of moms with young children who desired to serve other moms. These ladies began meeting, praying and building relationships. They quickly realized that there was a need for more mature and wiser moms like Titus 2 described. The ladies asked the Lord to bring Mentor Moms. As only the Lord can do, He answered these prayers and provided Mentor Moms.
On September 10, 2015, this women’s ministry named Beloved was official! “Beloved” is based on Deuteronomy 30:20, and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life…
Beloved was and is a place where moms of young children come together and share life with those who are older and wiser. Ladies who were once in their shoes and lived to tell about it! Life was not meant to be lived alone and as these precious moms gathered together with their Mentor Moms, the Titus 2 model was a reality.
He Is Your Life As Beloved was growing, the Lord brought Marilyn Orton into Kim’s life. Marilyn, founder of Women of Worth (WOW), spoke truth to Kim; challenged her and encouraged her to reproduce Beloved. This definitely stretched KIm’s faith. The Lord kept reminding Kim of two verses that had the same message; The Lord God, Jesus Christ, is your life. (Deuteronomy 30:20 and Colossians 3:4,When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.) By December 2015, the idea for He is Your Life was conceived.
The pieces for He Is Your Life (HIYL) began coming together when Julie Fuller approached Kim and had the desire to create a webpage for HIYL. This was confirmation to Kim that the Lord wanted to enlarge the Titus 2 Model of ministry. Kim and Julie began mapping out the vision and mission of He Is Your Life. They gathered and developed resources to help bring He Is Your Life to other churches in need of the Titus 2 model.
In August of 2018, Kim and Julie began writing Words of Encouragement. These weekly devotions are sent out through email and also posted on the HIYL website. The writing team expanded with the addition of Beth Calhoun, Donna Brown, Katie Flint, Sarah Spencer and Marsha Sommer.
Sisters Around the World The Lord began to expand He Is Your Life to minister overseas in March of 2019. Pastors from around the world received the weekly Word of Encouragements. These messages encouraged the pastors as well as the women in their communities. As a result, Sisters Around the World was created. Pastors in Uganda are using Approach the Throne and missionaries in Honduras are using Come Into His Presence. These are two studies that Kim has written, and are available as a free download on the HIYL website. Our overseas division is teaching and equipping women to find their worth in Christ and to deepen their relationship with Him. We now have the privilege of praying for and encouraging over 65 pastors.
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Spirit of God, and the final authority in all matters of belief and conduct.
We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit who is Creator of everything and Lord over all.
We believe God the Father so loved the world that He sent His only Son to be our Savior.
We believe God the Son is the Lord Jesus Christ; fully God and fully man. God the Father sent his only Son, Jesus, to be the Savior of the world. He was born of a virgin, living a sinless life and dying a substitutionary atoning death through His blood shed on the cross. We believe in His bodily resurrection and ascension to the right hand of God the Father, and He will come again in power and glory.
We believe God the Holy Spirit indwells in all who receive Jesus Christ by faith as their Lord and Savior and enables the believer to live a godly life, conforming to His image.
We believe that all people are lost sinners, but salvation is found in the repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ. The result is regeneration by the Holy Spirit. These are free gifts of God's grace that cannot be earned, deserved, inherited or bought.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, which is not an organization, but the Body of Christ made up of those all around the world who have personally trusted Jesus Christ as Savior and publicly confessed Him as Lord.
