More About Friends of the Heart


Kim MessingerKim’s energy, music and the ability to tell a story will make you laugh and cry at your next event. Kim invites you to join her in honest conversations about the struggles of divorce, health issues, breast cancer and being a “collector of all things!” She encourages women of all ages to live their best life in Christ, while deeply loving others around them. Kim, who enjoys her career in education, lives in a log cabin with her husband. They’re kept busy running a guesthouse and keeping track of their adult sons and grandson.

Janine Boyer                                                                                                                     Janine shares honestly about her struggles in life and how the loss of her mother at a young age has led her to embrace God’s amazing grace. Janine’s desire is for every woman to experience God’s grace and live in the truth of who they are in Christ, while experiencing a close relationship with Him, as His daughter and His friend. Typically, an early riser, but also known to hit the snooze button, Janine enjoys a cup of coffee and her quiet time with Jesus before heading to work with her hubby and son in the family business. Outside of work, she enjoys time with her married daughter and granddaughter.

Shirley Brosius                                                                                                                                      Shirley has do-si-doed into a background role with Friends of the Heart. She coordinates engagements and tells the gals when and where they’re speaking. Shirley wrote Sisterhood of Faith: 365 Life – Changing Stories about Women Who Made a Difference and, with Kim and Janine, co-authored Turning Guilt Trips into Joy Rides. When she isn’t writing, Shirley and her husband enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles, watching gameshows, and keeping up with two married sons and five grandkids.

These women are the real deal! Their love for Christ, each other and the rest of us is joyful to be around. Shirley's recitation from memory of the book of Philippians was unforgettable. They are funny and talented and caring.

We hold a bi-annual Women's Retreat and this year had the Friends of the Heart do our presentation. They did a wonderful job. Engaging all the women present with their skits, music, humor, and spiritual message. It was a relaxing welcoming event for those who needed to reconnect with their God and their spirituality. Our evaluations from those present were all very good. All in all a wonderful retreat that encouraged the first timers to consider coming back in two years! Thank you Friends of the heart!

I was recently at a Ladies weekend with our church. Friends of the Heart were a tremendous encouragement to me!! They are entertaining but more then just being entertaining they brought the Book of Ruth to life! Each one of their topic spoke something from Gods word to me. I would love to see them again and highly recommend them to any ladies group!

"I would like to recommend Shirley Brosius to your organization and you. I have only known her for the short period of time of 9 months, but I have come to love her and her talents. She has demonstrated a love for people and her Savior, Jesus Christ. She will readily volunteer to help when it is in her ability. She is faithful in teaching and leading when she can. She has opened her home to get to know her neighbors and friends. Shirley has a strong desire to write and is often found writing for our newspaper. Her strongest desire is to serve her Lord and Savior. We, the First United Methodist Church, are delighted that Bill and Shirley worship with us. They add to our planning and to the service. Many times I have thanked the Lord for Shirley's talents and gifts. She is a delight.....

"""Our church had the pleasure of having ""Friends of the Heart"" come to speak for our women's retreat. What a blessing! Their different personalities each contribute to a wonderful blend of transparency, inspiration and challenge to walk with God. Their talks were grounded in scripture, yet well balanced with personal examples and illustrations. Our ladies left encouraged and exhorted. Shirley's presentation of the book of Philippians from memory is not to be missed. We really appreciated their ministry to the women!"""

Kim Garosi, Women’s Ministry Organizer

I was invited to experience Friends of the Heart at another church last year and without hesitation asked them to present “At Any Age, At Any Stage: Celebrating the Christian Life” at to our women’s conference this year. The conference attendees have provided nothing but positive feedback, and they appreciated the variety of venues in which the message was shared. These particular sessions also provided the opportunity for women to discuss topics that are relevant to Christian women today. Kim, Shirley, and Janine are genuine, witty, and interact effectively with women from all walks of life. The love they have for God and each other is evident. As a result, this was the best women’s conference we have ever held at our church. I plan on passing their information along to other women’s groups in my area.
