About

My name is Kim Wynott. I am a child of God, who desires to serve Him. It wasn’t until I went through some unexpected pains in my life, that I realized God wants to use me too. As I held my 13 week old fetus in the palm of my hand; HE changed me forever. As I wrote a letter to my baby the next day; HE filled me with his wisdom and peace. As others read this letter and viewed the amazing picture of a baby that most expected to be a “blob”; HE used me. In fact, I now realize, that the letter was more His words than mine. The baby was more His child then my own. Then, exactly one year later, my husband informed me he wanted a divorce.  My world came crashing down, but God never let go of me. It was there in my weakest moments, God used me. Sad, raw and vulnerable; what most would define as “a mess”, he saw as usable. I will no longer ask, “Why me God?”. My new view…”Why not me?” (or in my personal case – Wynottme?)

    Hi Kim,
    My name is Sue & I cared for you as a toddler for a good 2 yrs. or more & am incredibly impressed & so happy so see what a great job your parents did with you AND needless to say, we give all the glory to God because you are so special in what you are doing. It was always a joy to deal with your parents, they were so mature & I have always been grateful to have made their accquaintance. Now to see how one out of many of my Day-Dare kids is using God as her guide, encouraging many in all that she does is even more of a blessing. Love reading everything you write!!!
    Be blessed, Sue

      WOW! Well hello there. I know your name well. For the last 40 years my mom has never let me forget, Babysitter Sue (who loved me more than all the other kids). Now that I’m older, I realize you probably made every parent feel that way. How nice of God to let me know through your post that He has been surrounding me with His love since before I even knew Him. Thank you for taking such good care of me as a baby. No doubt, you were one of the first to show me what love looks like.
      So blessed he crossed our paths again.
      Kim

    Thank you Kim, you’re very sweet. Yes it is special that we have crossed paths again but a blessing to me. Hope your Mom didn’t get too carried away talking about Babysitter Sue since you have no memory of it but I am glad I do. Take care, & thanks for all you are doing, Sue

    Hello Kim,
    My name is Rose and I’m pretty sure we have never met. I recently went through a miscarriage myself at 14 1/2 weeks. I was on Facebook one day trying to take my mind off of our loss and my grief. I came across your post “Grow where you are planted,” posted by Pastor Dudley. I cried as I read your story because it was so similar to mine in many ways and it really touched my heart. God truly used that posts to begin my healing because at that time I was lost in my grief. Going through the motions. I read your letter to your baby and I was so amazed at your story and the picture. That picture, it was what my baby would have looked like since we miscarried around the same time in our pregnancy. I clung to the image of your baby because I knew that is what my baby looked like and what a privilege it was for you to be able to meet your little one.
    Anyways, I just read your post about husbands needing to heal and once again was blessed greatly. I just had to write you a note and say THANK YOU. Thank you for your honesty and raw emotions. You have truly been a stepping stone in my path through the grieving process. God amazes me in how he can use someone I have never even met to help me get through this difficult time. I will forever be grateful. I thank God for you and I pray he continues to use you in others’ lives. God bless you for your willingness to serve him in this way and in turn to reach out to others who are experiencing something so close to your own experience.
    I am working through a book written by Angie Smith, “I will carry you.” If you have never read it you must. There is a song that goes along with the books story sung by Selah with the same title as the book. I encourage you to check it out.
    Because of HIM,
    Rose

      Rose, I have read your response at least 5 times, and still lack the words to reply. No, I don’t believe we have ever met. But I do believe you are someone I will now never forget.
      I have but 2 reasons for starting this Blog: 1. That I will always remember His faithfulness in my life and 2. That if what He has revealed to me can touch the heart of another, it would.
      It’s not about how many views I get, it’s about the one view that as you said, “God uses to begin the healing process”. I am convinced there is no greater joy on earth than to be used by God. My heart is filled with joy after reading what you wrote. So, thank You!
      This is just another reminder that my baby’s life (as brief as it was) had a specific purpose, and that purpose continues to show itself through healing mom’s like you.
      I love it when people tell me what an impact my baby’s image has made on them. Sharing that photo is probably the biggest leap of faith I’ve ever taken. I was so scared of how others would see him. I didn’t think anyone could see that little life and love it, like I did.
      Hearing reactions like yours, confirms that my story was meant to be shared. When the time is right, I pray that you will be able to share your story with others too. I’ll never forget the moment when I hesitantly showed the picture to a woman I had just met. She stared at it for a long time. When she finally spoke, this is all she said, “I don’t think I’m pro-choice anymore.” How amazing is our God?!
      If ever your at church around the 6:30 service, please come by the 4-year-old room. I would love to meet the woman I will never forget. 🙂
