Summary

Kim Walker-Smith's passionate performance of "How He Loves" helped transform Jesus Culture into a global worship movement. Brave Surrender is the story of how Kim journeyed from a place of shame and fear to stages around the world where she boldly proclaims the unconditional love of God. Through her own story, Kim inspires us to experience true freedom and healing with Jesus.

Coming from a painful childhood, Kim struggled to believe God could heal her heart or bring any sense from her past. Yet when faced with the choice to hand her struggles over to God and receive his love in return, everything began to change. On the other side of surrender, Kim began a journey of looking at one painful memory at a time with God and exchanging her perspective for his truth - a journey in which God rewrote her story of pain into a story of redemption and hope.

If you are longing to experience God more than the shame or hurts of your past, the pressures of your present, or the fear of your future, Brave Surrender offers a soul-healing path forward. As Kim learned in her own life, the first step - and the bravest step - is letting go. Once we let go of anything that gets between us and God, we are freed to take hold of the life that truly matters. As Kim writes, "When we encounter God's love, it changes the way we see. And when we learn to see what He sees, we will never be the same again."

Surrendered

I have wept and laughed through this book. Wow what an amazingly honest, heart rending story written and spoken so emotively. Thank you Kim Walker Smith. You have gone through a lot and surrendered more than you could possibly have thought or imagined and you have blessed me with your testimony. May Jesus work through me as He has with you and I pray I do not give up as so often I feel I want to do. May we all be so brave and become the people God intended us to be and give glory in His name. I feel privileged to have listened to this book and know it will have a part to play on my own journey.

surprising, with life changing honesty

I guess I always thought that Kim fell on to a stage with a trust fund in her pocket after a party... her story of being continually loved to life by Jesus through struggle and pain is not only inspirational... you can feel the Holy Spirit singing loud and clear something so personal to you through the message.
It's a well written, well constructed book with great audio telling that was not only clear, but had the added advantage of being the intimate voice of the autho, telling her own story; there's a lot to be said for telling your own story.
If you're reading the reviews, I'm so grateful you chose to write and read this Kim. It's amazing. And thank you for being so honest.

Couldn't stop listening...

Such a beautiful book. So honestly written and very bravely read. I couldn't put it down, and look forward to reading it again. So full of truth and real life guidance. I'm so grateful for this story. A definite must read if you've wondered whether God exists through all the terrible things that happen, where is Jesus in the mess? Listen to this book & get a glimpse of how much each of us mean to our Heavenly Papa. 💕

It gave me a lot to reflect on

I have always loved Mrs Walker-Smith’s voice, her pure heart, her vulnerability, genuine heart, when she leads worship, and when I heard she wrote a book, I just couldn’t wait. I finish it, and her being the narrator was so special. The book did not disappoint. I found myself crying with joy, sadness, and taking many a note as it has given me many things I need to work on in my life with the Lord. Thank you Kim for this gift!

Honest, transparent authentic


This is a fantastic glimpse through Kim’s life. It’s well written, well read and filled with wisdom. Many lessons can be learned. Relatable, I’m so glad she is so open about her life. I know my life has benefited from reading it and I know many others will as well. It astounds me how she can depict her revelation of God‘s love and how it is Wolfen through her entire story even before she knew him. I would recommend this book to everyone, those who know the love of God and those who are struggling to understand it. I gave a very high review because it is well written, she does a great job of narrating it and the content itself is as I said before it’s life-changing.

This is an incredible book!

This is a must read for anyone who is struggling with forgiveness or surrendering all to Jesus. Kim’s testimony is a powerful example of how God is always pursuing us, longing for us to draw nearer to Him and continuously grow into the people he ultimately created us to be. Kim’s story also shows how no mess is to bad for God... in fact it isn’t the mess he sees at all... it is us, and all He wants is for us to let Him in and trust in HIM.

Know more about the struggles, wounds and overcomings of this amazing woman of God just made me admire her even more! We, as christians, can all relate with her ups and downs through a true walk of faith! Just incredible.
