Kimm Crandall is a mother of four kids (15, 13, 10, and 8)) who is never short on examples of how God has flooded her with the excessive grace that the gospel brings. Kimm’s desire is, through writing and speaking, to bring the much-needed freedom of the gospel to others who have been beaten down by the “try harder” and “do better” law. When she is not on the basketball court, baseball field, beach, or enjoying horses she can be found blogging at kimmcrandall.com.

And…moreSince most of my time is spent with my four kids I never seem to be short on writing material because they provide me with so many examples. And because my writing time is so limited, I am usually ready with something to put down on paper by the time I get to writing. I process life through writing so it's kind of how I function. I don't know what I think until I read what I write. If I were a fiction writer I think it would be a much different story. Also, I throw away about 3/4 of what I write. I will sometimes write thousands of words until I get to a place where what I am saying makes sense. (less)

I just opened a chocolate bar. A fancy fair-trade-four-dollar-and-fifty-cent candy bar that was part of someone else’s gift. I unwrapped it and I ate it.

I’m not sorry.

I tend to impulsively tear into chocolate when “I can’t do it anymore.” Perhaps this minor break down was fed by the 2 hours of unexpected traffic I sat in with four kids today. Or maybe it was the screaming match about so...

“You can be depressed and still have joy. You can be suicidal and still have joy. We all stop thinking and we all stop talking and we all stop sharing and we all stop creating, because by doing any of these things we quickly find out just how unhappy we are. But that’s okay. That’s normal. Don’t let the fear of unhappiness cripple your pursuit of finding what it is you believe.”

Beloved Mess by Kimm Crandall
"It's not about trying to get rid of the mess. There will always be a tension in our lives because we are not in our heavenly home. Crandall points out that we're actually called to embrace it. To ask God to help us step into our mess with grace. W..." Read more of this review »

“Taking off the masks, being real, and living in freedom—this is a process. After all, it takes some time to get to know the real you. This is not about loving yourself more and embracing the “you” that you were always meant to be. No, this is about seeing the real you in the real Light. It is a good thing to feel horrified by the real you and run to the only One who can save you from yourself. The gospel frees you to believe that there is no “making it” and therefore you can stop “faking it.” You already have everything you need through the righteousness earned for you on the cross. If you believe these truths, the masks you wear will begin to melt away. Then, bit by bit, we can help one another become free as well. Allow other moms to be imperfect. Allow yourself to be imperfect. Be free!”
Kimm Crandall, Christ in the Chaos: How the Gospel Changes Motherhood

“Chaos turns into peace when the Prince of Peace speaks deeply into your heart and tells you, “Be still. I am God. I’ve got this.”
Kimm Crandall, Christ in the Chaos: How the Gospel Changes Motherhood

“What you need to hear from me is that I am a mess, you are a mess, and that there is hope outside of ourselves; a hope in the one who came and lived perfectly on our behalf because he knew that we would make a huge mess out of what we have been given”
Kimm Crandall, Beloved Mess: God's Perfect Love for Your Imperfect Life

“You can be depressed and still have joy. You can be suicidal and still have joy. We all stop thinking and we all stop talking and we all stop sharing and we all stop creating, because by doing any of these things we quickly find out just how unhappy we are. But that’s okay. That’s normal. Don’t let the fear of unhappiness cripple your pursuit of finding what it is you believe.”

“I think to myself, OK. I should be able to control myself, right? It’s very simple. I look at that lamp and I know, ok, when I walk out of this room, I’m not supposed to hit that lamp. So I stand up, and I walk out of the room and I don’t hit that lamp. Why can’t I make decisions like that about everything in my life? You know, I’m not going to get angry at… my brother. I want to be the best brother. Don’t you want to be the best brother? Do you think that you’ve been the best brother? Not at all right? It’s like, why can’t I, why can’t I do what I want to do? If I want to be a dad one day, I want to be the best dad. Guess what? I’m not going to be the best dad. And that, that’s messed up. That’s messed up. That means that if I were to take how it is I treat people around me in the same way that I treat a social setting that means that I would stand up right now and kick that lamp over because there’s something wrong. There’s like, something is broken, in this, in the way that we live. There’s proof that there’s an element there that’s not right. Something’s not right.”
