On Topic

It is my pleasure to recommend to you the ministry of Kim McCormick. What appeared to be a disaster in her life, the discovery of ovarian cancer, has opened doors of opportunity for her to share her experience and her faith. The story of the healing power that comes through solid faith in our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, is her story. Kim has a testimony that will touch the hearts of all who hear.

Helen Ferringer, Women's Ministry Coordinator

What a wonderful weekend we had with Kim! Our women went away for an overnight retreat in October. Kim and her husband, Rod, were such a blessing to our group. Kim shared her amazing testimony with us. She played her flute beautifully, leading us in a fun sing-a-long, as well as singing heartfelt solos that brought the peaceful presence of Jesus into our meetings. Kim spoke with candor about her fight with ovarian cancer, and about embracing change in our lives - whether we perceive it as good or bad. Kim speaks from her heart, and has an inspiring message to share with everyone. She is full of the joy of the Lord and we appreciated her ministry more than words can say! We spent time in laughter, tears, and self-reflection as Kim shared her heart for God with us. I would highly recommend Kim as a Christian speaker.

It was such and Honor to work with Kim, as our speaker, on our April 2019 women's retreat. Kim was very organized, patient, kind and thoughtful-even when our leader who formed a relationship with her was ill and unable to attend the retreat. Kim's message reached each of our 70+ women in attendance, leaving all with a meaningful experience and message to take home. Kim's message was rooted in scripture and she shared more while interacting in our small groups and during free time. I would highly recommend Kim and will hopefully have the privilege to work with her again in the future.

I would highly recommend Kim to speak at your next Ladies Event! Kim was our speaker for our recent ladies retreat, The Sound of Music and it was an awesome experience! God blessed each and every one who attended the retreat through her speaking and music. We had never met Kim prior to our retreat and actually was lead to her through your website when looking for a speaker. Kim from the time she arrived, left like she was one of our team and we'd been friends for many many years. We look forward to having her back again in the future.

We had Kim speak at our ladies retreat on October 26 & 27, 2018. We chose the topic "The Game of Life". I can't say enough how much our ladies enjoyed her enthusiasm, knowledge and love she shared with us. Friday night we had so much fun with her "Sound of Music medley" - everyone was singing and acting out the songs. Lots of laughter, inspirational small groups, and each session Kim shared was very meaningful and we could apply to our lives. She was very organized, well-spoken, and so friendly. I would highly recommend her.

We hosted a Ladies Day at out church this past weekend (November 2018). All were blessed and challenged by Kim's message of hope and purpose. I take scheduling speakers for our church very seriously, so I was a little nervous about having someone come whom I had never personally heard. But after reading through all of the recommendations provided by this site, I am so thankful that we chose Kim! There was no need to worry. Kim was quick to answer all of the emails I sent her way, as we planned this event over the past several months. She also demonstrated both her heart for women and her experience/professionalism as a speaker. She and her husband came prepared in every way! Her friendly personality was felt by all and she related so well to our ladies. Thank you, Kim! We truly loved you!!!

Kim was our featured speaker for our recent Ladies' Day. She was simply excellent! The music she used to minister, her sense of humor and her transparency about her struggles, and her compassionate encouragement all added to her message of hope.

Our Women's Ministry Team could not be more thrilled with Kim's message at our retreat! Kim and her lessons of love, of hope, of faith is what every woman so deeply needed to be reminded of that weekend. Kim was enthusiastic and encouraging throughout the process of organizing the retreat, answering our questions about logistics quickly and with joy. She and her husband came the evening prior to the event to work with our sound system team to ensure that there would be a smooth start to the retreat. Then at the retreat, Kim just radiated love and joy, showed deep desire to share her journey with us, and radiated God's love to all the women who participated in our weekend event. Her talks, her skits, her break-out questions were poignant and vehicles for deeper conversations. Kim spoke to each of us, stirred within us a renewed sense of God's purpose for each of our lives, and inspired us to share our faith with those around us. Thank you, Kim, for serving us in Christ's love!

We had a lovely day at our Tri State Ladies Event with Kim.
It was refreshing, inspiring, musical, and special to join a variety of local churches together for a day to set aside & get away with fellow sisters in Christ.

From the very first conversation with Kim, I knew that God had placed a special servant into our church ladies lives to bring a wonderful message of understanding the Psalms. Kim spoke from her heart and truly shared her love for her Lord and shared with us what the words of our Lord were telling us such as "be still and know I am Lord. ". Her smile and her love for reaching out to others truly made our day with her and her husband Rod extra special. The ladies are continuing to talk about this special day and wanted to know when I would be having her back. Our theme was Lavender Spa and she truly brought the message in that relaxing spa like atmosphere as well as to have us each reflect on the words of God. What a awesome event thanks to Kim.

Along with being a pastor, I also serve on our Conference Ladies Retreat Committee. It was our privilege to have Kim speak at our Retreat on Sept. 15-16. Her message was inspiring and Biblical. Her music was beautiful and her heart was full of love for Christ and others. It is my honor to recommend Kim to anyone who is looking for a speaker for their ladies group.

We were blessed to have Kim as our ladies' retreat speaker. Her messages were encouraging, Scripturally-grounded, personal, and applicable to everyone. Her passion for the Lord and for the causes he's given her is clear. She also made herself available, participating in other aspects of the retreat, which allowed us to get to know her better. And her musical gifts are a beautiful underscore to her message! She was kind, professional, humble, Christ-honoring, and real.

Kim spoke at our conference ladies retreat this past weekend. Many of the ladies mentioned that her sessions were the best part! Truly, the Lord used her to minister in a very real way. Her spirit was so warm and friendly, and our ladies found her easily approachable. She was dynamic, relevant, transparent, and shared the truth of God's Word in a fun, engaging way that drew you into her story. She also is a beautiful musician, playing the flute and singing! We were truly blessed with this woman of God, who shared her journey in a way that spoke to all of our hearts and drew us closer in our walk with our Lord. Many of our ladies have asked that we invite her back again. I highly recommend her as a speaker.

Kimberly McCormick, Is truly a gifted speaker who shares her story from the deepest part of her heart. She is an inspiration and I would recommend her to share her story with your group. Her presentation was well received and everyone was glad they were at our luncheon because God sent her to us. Rod, her husband, is a very nice gentleman, truly an asset and we were glad to meet both of them. We wish Kim the very best as they visit and share her story with others as they give glory and honor to God. I guess the best way to say how we felt about their visit is to simply say we were blessed! By the way, Kim is not only a gifted speaker, but she is a talented flutist. We look forward to seeing them again one day soon.

Kimberly was our Speaker on July 13, 2017. 120 ladies attended our Garden State Women's luncheon and had nothing but great comments about Kimberly. She is a multi-talented musician who sang for us and performed a medley of songs from "The Sound of Music" on her flute. Her testimony- "Stop and Smell the Roses" was a heart-warming talk. Kim is one of the best speakers we have had and I would highly recommend her. You will not be disappointed!

I had the pleasure of working with Kim for the Four Mile Church's women's retreat. Kim was our speaker and I was the worship leader for this retreat. For months prior to the retreat, Kim was available and happy to communicate with me about our upcoming event. Her excitement for the event was contagious during this time of planning. She was helpful in discussing ideas that would make her message and the worship music really compliment each other, therefore creating an event that her message came though both in her inspiring speaking and in the music. Kim not only shared how God was working in her life during her battle with ovarian cancer, but also educated us on the signs, symptoms and statistics of ovarian cancer. This was important to me because I lost a grandmother to ovarian cancer. Kim is a pleasure to listen to. Her speaking style is just the right pace, not too fast or too slow, and her words are eloquent. Kim's love for God and desire to serve Him are evident.

Kim recently was the speaker at our annual women's retreat. She did a fantastic job! She had three speaking segments and also developed the questions for our small groups. She was an engaging and personal speaker. She joined right in all of other activities and saw her often having one on one conversations with some of the attendees. She has a very compassionate nature that really draws people to her. Her love of the Lord really shines through!

Kim came to speak on behalf of ovarian cancer survivors at our Women's Health Luncheon at Duquesne University. She is a very eloquent speaker and touched every person in the room with her words. Everyone came up to me afterwards to tell me how wonderful of a speaker she was and that they thought she was very inspirational. I highly recommend Kim for any event you may need her services for because she is very easy to work with and is a wonderful person.

It was wonderful for our group of 120 ladies (ages 15-65) to hear from Kim at our Women's Retreat. She truly shared from her heart the joys and trials of her life and how the Lord has brought her through them. Everyone appreciated her sweet spirit and vulnerability and we were encouraged to center our lives of Christ; body, mind and spirit!
Thank you for sharing your life with us Kim! You are such a blessing!

Kim is a gifted speaker, vocalist and musician. Our group thoroughly enjoyed her presentation that was delivered with grace, humility, and humor. She left us with a memorable message of God's unconditional love and care for us through life's tough times. Her beautiful music, presented through her amazing vocals and flute, reminded us to enjoy this life that God has given us. I highly recommend Kim for any group who needs to hear an inspirational, uplifting message of hope from a cancer survivor who gives all the glory to our God and Savior for seeing her through a great valley.

I would highly recommend Kimberly McCormick for your group's next Christian women's meeting. As a special guest speaker, Kim McCormick's love of God and people shines through SO brightly. Kim's story tells of how God will take your lowest moments in life and turn them into good. Through story and songs, Kim is a blessing to all. The music she provides adds a special touch to Kim's amazing story. Her faith in Christ and how God provides is very uplifting. :-) She is a natural! As someone who is drawn to love stories, I am especially touched by how her husband, Rod, is by her side all the way.

Kim brings so much joy to her audiences through both her music and message! Although, she shares her journey that began with a devastating diagnosis of cancer, her faith-filled message of hope is so much greater than this. Reflections of her own family life experiences and spiritual growth lessons that resulted are great fun for listening ears and sure to bring lots of smiles. Kim's demonstration of her love for Christ and what He is doing in her life is contagious! I highly recommend that you book her for your next women's event!

Kim gave a presentation at a mother/daughter luncheon that I attended last May. She is sweet and she’s petite, but she has a gigantic message to share with her audience about how her faith in Jesus Christ carried her through the days before, during and after experiencing ovarian cancer and all that it entails. Kim uses her skills as an educator to inform her audience about the signs and symptoms of this disease and the importance of screening for same. She arrived early and laid out a table full of written materials about ovarian cancer along with bookmarks and post cards with inspirational Bible verses for everyone to take home with them. She’s an interesting, engaging speaker and as an added bonus, she shared her musical talent by playing the flute! We certainly hope to have her back again. I highly recommend her as a speaker for any event.

I highly recommend Kim as an inspirational speaker. She is a gifted communicator, charming and gentle, yet powerful in telling of God's work in her life with grace and humor. This past July, she spoke for our women's outreach dinner with an uplifting theme relating her darling kindergartners to the Master's Garden. How wonderful! Our ladies were refreshed, and so delighted as Kim played selections from "The Sound of Music" on her flute with recorded accompaniment. Talent, charm, wisdom, gentleness, and full of the Spirit!

Kimberly McCormick was a 2015 featured speaker at the Hubbard Public Library. We had purchased her Lessons from Little Kings and Queens, and knew the best way to alert our cardholders to this new book was through an author visit. Kimberly was an excellent presenter, holding the audience’s attention not only with anecdotes from her book, but also by touching on her own life story. We would recommend Kimberly to most any gathering, as she is able to easily adjust her presentation to her audience.

For the past few years I have worked with Kim McCormick in the Stonecroft International Speaking Ministry. I am not only greatly impressed by her speaking and musical abilities, but also by her passion for God and her desire to share His love with others around her. This has also been evidenced in the book she has written, “Wrapped In His Arms of Love.” She is an excellent communicator and all audiences would be able to relate in some practical way to her experiences. In spite of the physical trials that she has faced in the past, Kim’s sweet spirit and pleasant demeanor show through in a beautiful way.

It is my honor and pleasure to recommend my dearest friend Kimberly McCormick as presenter. Kimberly and I “go way back” when she first taught baton lessons to my sister when we were little girls. I had the advantage of being paired with her during my Student Teaching assignment in college as she fulfilled the daunting role as my cooperative teacher. Now, we are colleagues working side by side at Wilmington Area School District enriching lives of young learners. Kimberly’s heart extends far beyond the classroom. She is an Ovarian Cancer survivor and documented her journey in her testimonial “Wrapped in His Arms of Love.” She humbly donates all proceeds from the sale of her book to the Pittsburgh chapter of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition and the American Cancer Society. In her memoir, she shares her battle with this life threatening disease yet does so with humor and grace.........
