Kim McDougal

Hi there! I’m Kim, creator, writer and designer behind, “Growing Up in Grace (GUIG)”, where I share my thoughts, growing pains and experiences about God’s grace. Before giving my life to Jesus in 1987, I was a muddy mess. Through my relationship to Jesus, He’s helped me overcome several addictions (drugs, sex), heavy metal lifestyle, suicide and self-destruction. All of this led me to write my autobiography, “Out of the Darkness“.

Currently I work in the web/graphic design industries for several companies and crafting for my own Etsy Shops, “Kim’s Handcrafted Cards” and “Kim’s Studio Art“. I describe myself as a creator: 
“I love to make things whether it be a handmade card or on my computer. Creating brings me so much joy. Even though I don’t have formal art training, and my educational background is in business, I have always leaned towards the creative side.”

Creating is my therapy and I feel so blessed to be able to share it when the world needs to see a shining light so badly in this world.

And, If you don’t know The Lord Jesus as your Savior and Lord, I invite you to give your life and heart to Him today. I won’t kid you that your life will all of a sudden be perfect, in fact the Bible says, you will find trouble here on earth, but God promises to be with us through everything we go through everyday for the rest of our lives. You can begin your journey by reading the book of Romans because it thoroughly outlines our basic need for God. Then, I recommend reading Acts the 2nd chapter about how to give your life to Jesus. I promise you this, you’ll never be the same again.

I pray God’s blessings on you everyday!
