For those of you that are new to the blog I want to tell you a little bit about the free series Creativity Takes Courage.

This month we are talking with Kimberly Taylor of The Grow Hope Foundation.

Kimberly Taylor shares about finding her purpose on a trip to Uganda that didn’t go as planned. She talks about the courage it takes to walk in our callings, even as we discover that not everything is going to be easy and not all parts of it are our super power. Being a mom to 4 boys, there was a cost to starting Grow Hope, but Kimberly talks about how finally being fulfilled and satisfied with her work changed the temperature of her home and the benefits far outweighed the cost.

We are talking all about purpose, calling and the impact it can make in yourself, family and the world. Come on over!

Some quotes from this interview:

  • As a woman you feel like you need to do something that has purpose even if you are not bringing in an income
  • I wasn’t taking into account my actual skill set. I was just taking what looked like it would be really fun. I was always looking for something that would give me purpose
  • There came a time when I was like “wow, I’m not searching for anything anymore
  • No matter your calling, parts of it are not your superpower
  • Just because you know what you are supposed to do, doesn’t mean it’s easy
  • That hope will spread. Hope keeps growing slowly. Slow and solid
  • Women change the world!
  • It is to the benefit of EVERYONE that women find something that speaks to their heart

Creativity Takes Courage {Kimberly Taylor and The Grow Hope Foundation}

Our newest Creativity Takes Courage interview starts right now!

***

For those of you that are new to the blog I want to tell you a little bit about the free series.

My creative network offers free videos, new online courses, live “chats” and now interviews with courageous lovelies from around the world.

Over the past two years I have had the opportunity to interview some of my favorite creative women and business owners.

You can see the talented list of interviewees over on my creative network under Creativity Takes Courage.

This month I had the joy of interviewing my good friend Kimberly Taylor.

Kimberly is the founder of The Grow Hope Foundation and I am honored that we had this chance for her to share her heart on family, passions, Africa and creating hope.

I have been friends with Kimberly for over five years now and she never ceases to amaze me with her knowledge of gardening, cooking and photography.

Her style is comfortable, timeless and welcoming.

She is a friend I have laughed and cried with, traveled with and dreamed with.

To see her bring her passions together and create something that brings her joy and blesses others is pretty incredible to see.

The Grow Hope Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people around the world improve their circumstances through education and a helping hand.  Whether it is a loan to begin a sustainable business, bringing in wells to communities with no access to clean water, educating parents on nutrition and hygiene to prevent the spread of disease in their children or hands-on instruction in how to improve sanitation by building better latrines, we want to make a difference.  With your help we can give those in need a helping hand, so that they can create a better future for themselves and their children on their own.
