Real Cherished


How can she believe God cherishes her when she can’t forgive herself?

Kelli London once dreamed of being a songwriter. As crazy as it seemed, she hoped that God would use the lyrics that came to her while she slept. She dreamed about Brian too, that the love they shared would be a forever kind of love. But choices she’ll forever regret upended her hope . . . and turned her dreams to dust. When those dreams come knocking once more, she’s forced to deal with the pain of the past.

Heather Anderson’s life has spun out of control-first, an affair with a married man, then a one-night stand with the drummer of a popular Christian band that left her devastated. Broken and alone, she cried out to the only One who can save her. And He did. But that’s just the beginning, because now she must leave behind the only life she’s ever known.

Two women with shame-filled pasts form an unlikely friendship. What does God’s forgiveness look like for them? Will they ever believe that He loves them . . . and can still offer them a life where they are cherished?

“As I read Kim’s book Cherished the word that came back to me over and over again is ‘grace.’ Kim has the gift of being able to tell a story so vividly that you forget that the characters she portrays are fictitious and you experience deep empathy for them. You will find yourself in this story. More than that you will discover for the first time or rediscover how deeply you are loved, valued, and cherished by God.”
Sheila Walsh, Women of Faith speaker and author of Sweet Sanctuary

“Kimberly has a unique way of inviting you into the heart of her storyline. Each character feels like someone you already know or someone you wish you knew. The issues are always current, and culturally relevant, yet full of truths to help us grow spiritually. I have found myself laughing out loud and sometimes crying along with those on the pages, and I must admit that I’ve caught myself talking back to the book a time or two. So get ready to be changed for the better, encouraged into greatness and convinced of the knowledge that you, too, are Cherished!”
Nicole C. Mullen, Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter
