In today’s episode, I’m joined by Kimberly Stuart, a multifaceted talent—writing coach, author of eight novels, and podcaster. Alongside New York Times-bestselling author Bob Goff, she has guided hundreds of aspiring authors through executive coaching, online courses, podcasts, and live events. Kimberly’s expertise and passion for storytelling have made her a beacon for writers seeking inspiration and practical advice.

In her new book, Star for Jesus (And Other Jobs I Quit): Rediscovering the Grace that Sets Us Free, Kimberly shares moments that encourage readers to embrace God's fierce love over lesser alternatives. Join us as we delve into the early days of her career, the nuances of writing fiction versus nonfiction, and her advice for aspiring authors. We also discuss the motivation needed for tough days, the failures she has faced, and the valuable lessons learned from them.

Join Kimberly and I as we talk about:

  • The early days of her career

  • The differences between writing fiction vs. nonfiction

  • Advice if you are thinking of writing a book

  • Encouragement and motivation for the hard days

  • Failures she has faced, what she has learned from them, and how she turned them around

Favorite quotes: 

  • “Sometimes those little tiny dreams we haven’t even put any oxygen on yet, those are the ones that we need someone else to say out loud.” (7:02 Audio)

  •  “It makes a difference in the narrative we are telling ourselves and reminding ourselves.” (16:22 Audio) 

  • “Failure can come when you are not looking for it.” (30:46 Audio)

Coaching this week: Self Talk  (43:25)  

In coaching for this episode, I teach about our inner voice.  Sometimes, but I think more often than not, the voice in our head is mean and critical or just a downer. I want you to keep in mind that the relationship that you have with yourself is the most crucial one because that voice isn't going anywhere. If you wouldn't take that kind of talk from a friend, you don't want to take it from yourself. I'll also want you to flip it around. Would you ever talk to a friend that way? Would you talk to your best friend, your spouse, or your child in the way that you talk to yourself?
