Hey there, I'm Kendra aka Kym Writes!

I'm a storyteller, coffee chick, content creator, cool nerd, big dreamer, believer, recovering procrastinator, unashamed binge-watcher & book-obsessed wordsmith on a mission to write words that inspire others in their faith, wellness, and creative life. 


Welcome to my digital space of inspiration

I've always loved reading and writing stories (which kinda explains my tiny obsession with books and journals). As an author, my mission is to write contemporary fiction, drama and short stories with edge and heart. As a storyteller and writing consultant, I help others improve their content, make an impact with their story, and discover the healing power of writing.

Whether I'm writing fiction, inspirational content, or magazine articles, I'm passionate about penning words to let people know they can overcome adversity and find peace and hope in dark and broken places. I've been there. I know it's hard to make moves when you're barely holding on. Here you'll find highlights of my journey along with stories on life, love and loss.  I designed this space to encourage you to keep going when life happens and help you rediscover joy and hope through writing, storytelling, and self-care – mind, body & soul.

The pain and light from our own story-in-progress can become a pathway to someone's breakthrough.

I'm a firm believer that God can transform our mess into something beautiful. This is a place to remind you of your why when you're weary, overwhelmed, and ready to give up.  A place to help you share your story with courage, create meaningful content, and pen words to make an impact. So, if you need a good fiction read, self-care tips, faith boost, resources to improve your writing, or someone to tell you “YOU got this” as you navigate this unpredictable journey called LIFE, KYM Writes has you covered.
