Kimberly Shelton is a 52 year old author and a well-established businesswoman who dedicates her life to helping others and empowering them to become the best version of themselves. Using authentic words that resonate with her readers, Kimberly chose to dive into her own past and personal life to share her experience as a survivor of domestic and sexual abuse and become one of the writers of Power Up Your Past. Mental health doesn’t have an age limit, even for grandmothers. It wasn’t until Kimberly’s children were grown that she realized her need to revisit the path of extensive personal development and self-awareness to heal, change, and help other women do the same. “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 Becoming a certified domestic violence advocate was one of the few steps she took to bring relief to women and children in domestic violence shelters. Kimberly’s story is full of insights on personal growth, mindset, forgiveness, and faith; from overcoming dyslexia and a poverty mindset mentality, to acknowledging her weaknesses and coming forward to talk about the abuse inflicted upon her for years. Kimberly’s personal values and work ethics are behind her unique ability to immerse her readers in her life story using what she learned along the way to shift and reshape what was a profound fear into strength, wisdom, and a compelling example of courage and triumph. Currently living in Southern California where she enjoys time with her family, volunteering, hiking, swimming, traveling to new places and spending time at the beach, Kimberly is passionate about inspiring hope and empowering change to create a safe space from a young age. Because abusive relationships often impact the children as well as the women involved, she works to equip them with the necessary tools to break cycles of domestic abuse and live happy fulfilling lives free of violence, as she did. Beyond her work in domestic violence shelters, talking in small groups, and writing in response to women in distress, Power Up Your Past includes some of her most valuable life lessons about self-confidence, forgiveness and mindfulness.
