Richmond, VA, August 23, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Author Kim Newlen has been encouraging women in her home the first Monday of every month for more than 18 years and is the founder of "Sweet Monday"-a group she founded out of loneliness after becoming a stay-at-home mom and wanting to connect with other women. Now Newlen, a breast cancer survivor who learned this summer that her cancer has returned, hopes to continue helping all women grow in their faith with a new devotional, "The One Year Sweet and Simple Moments with God Devotional," releasing from Tyndale House Publishers in September.
In this new devotional, Newlen shares with her down-to-earth, southern charm and humor, as well as heart-lightening insights she’s gathered from pausing and listening to God in her day-to-day life, encouraging us all to take a sweet and simple moment to be still with God every day.
As a breast cancer survivor who is once again battling cancer, Kim Newlen has also been a cheerleader for women who are battling the disease. She developed and patented a postsurgical camisole called Look Better Than You Feel and established a program for gifting the camisoles to patients undergoing treatment.
Kim hangs her pink hat in Richmond, Virginia, sharing life with her husband, Mark, a former state director for Fellowship of Christian Athletes and a basketball player at the University of Virginia, and her college daughter, Kali.
