Today’s post is about a new book called Closet Words by Kim Hilton. Similar to God Calling and Jesus Calling, yet different in its own right, it is “a glimpse of the words given by God to one who had the courage to earnestly seek Him.”
As the book blurb on Amazon says: “Taken word for word as heard from God, Closet Words is a collection of powerful and penetrating words written down in the stillness of a prayer closet. Hearing from God for several years, Kim Hilton began writing down what she heard. Encouraging, uplifting, and challenging words with a clear message to His servants, Closet Words gives a renewal and refreshing word to the Christian believer.”
Here’s a little about Kim and the book:
My upbringing as a child was very hard. I was an orphan, the youngest of six children. My mother was 13 when she had her first child and 19 when I was born. Six children in six years. I saw my mother shot with a shotgun by my father. I lived in violence, abuse, and poverty. I personally experienced extreme hunger because there was no food.
Eventually, the state came in and took all six of us children from the home. We were put in an orphanage, then in foster care, and later, four of us were adopted. I have lived a journey of healing for many years. I chose long ago to not only be a survivor but to be an overcomer.
Kim resides with her husband on their farm and enjoys spending time with their six grown children and grandchildren.
What made you first decide to become a writer?
God has helped me with words for teaching and writing that can be encouraging to others. My words seem to flow when on paper.
Can you tell us about your book?
I wrote what God spoke to me. His words would come at any time; sometimes as I was praying in my closet. Sometimes at night, already in bed asleep, I would reach for my pen and paper to scribble down the words. He even spoke to others through me and what I passed on to them greatly impacted their lives.
From the beginning to the end, each chapter builds upon the other, calling the reader to a deeper, closer, and more committed relationship with God.
What do you hope readers will take away from this book?
Closet Words is truly a bugle call, a call to action for modern day Christians to find within themselves their true commitment to God. He wants us to take our Christianity seriously. We are never alone in this life and God does hear our prayers. He is deeply and personally committed to each and every one of us.
What is up next for you?
The next book coming is Dripping In Grace: The True Story of Past Horror, Present Healing and Permanent Grace.
