Kim Woodhouse–An Extreme-ly Awesome Lady

Ronie Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Kim Woodhouse, Welcome Home 4 Comments

I am so very honored to highlight my dear friend KIMBERLEY WOODHOUSE and her amazing book:

Welcome Home: Our Family’s Journey to Extreme Joy

I had the great pleasure of reading this book–and let me just say, this book changed my life! I found Kim’s approach to problems, interruptions, and “complaints” refreshing. She views them as adventures and tackles them with God’s joy. I know she’s not perfect, but the way she’s pushing to always honor God has challenged me to be better about tackling those things. And considering all the trials she’s been through, talking and hanging out with her prove that she puts her life where her “mouth” is. Kim lives this!

If you have not bought a copy of this book, it’s an absolute must! It’s definitely worth the cost, and I’ve heard this book has already gone into its third printing! Woo-hoo!!!

From the Back Cover:

Overwhelming trials . . . met with overcoming joy.
Kayla Woodhouse is not your typical twelve-year-old. Due to a rare medical disorder, she feels no pain, doesn’t sweat, and needs protective cooling gear just to go outside. With her restrictive lifestyle; countless hospitalizations, including brain surgery; and the resulting mountain of hospital bills, what’s a family to do?

How the Woodhouse family has faced seemingly impossible challenges is a story that has captured the hearts of America. Millions of people have experienced glimpses of their lives on Discovery’s Mystery ER, The Montel Williams Show, and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (recently voted one of the show’s all-time best episodes!).

Now Kayla’s mom, Kimberley, takes readers behind the cameras to reveal their family’s journey as never before told. From medical sleuthing to cross-country moves, from freak fires to battles with insurance companies, Welcome Home proves that truth really is stranger than fiction. This candid life story reveals both success and failure and demonstrates how, even during tough circumstances, to shift your life from heartbreak to extreme joy.

Normally, I don’t do give-aways but I believe so strongly in Kim and WELCOME HOME: OUR FAMILY’S JOURNEY TO EXTREME JOY that if you leave a comment about why you’d like this incredible book, I’ll host a drawing before I leave for the ACFW Conference in mid-September (drawing will be combined between Shoutlife, Blogger, and Facebook–one entry per person).

    I watched the family on the Extreme Makeover and was very impressed by their courage and faith and also God's blessings and favor on their life. Would love to win a copy of the book. 🙂

    I'd love to read the story. I've heard about it online. We don't watch TV so I hadn't seen the story. It sounds like a great one to share with others.
