Heart Filled With Praise


lb2 lbruce3  

Despite my daily health obstacles ( 74months), I will continue to trust God with my life,  promote heart awareness, & encourage heart/stroke patients to maintain a positive outlook on life, while coping with the recovery process. I know without a doubt, God is healer.

Psalm 34:1  NKJV

I will bless the Lord  at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth

Thanks for caring.

Have a wonderful day

Sometimes you meet angels on earth, and Kimberly is one of them! Kimberly is a wife, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a health advocate, an American He…art Association Ambassador, and most recently, a survivor – a survivor of open-heart and two pacemaker surgeries. Kimberly is eternally grateful for her recovery, so she travels the world sharing her heart testimony, promoting heart awareness, and encouraging heart/stroke patients to maintain a positive outlook on life while coping with the recovery process. Kimberly is indeed an angelic being with a heart of gold:)
