Pen of Kym Writes

Hey there, I'm Kendra aka Kym Writes!

I'm a creative writer, storyteller, writing coach, Jesus lover, cool nerd, big dreamer, recovering procrastinator, unashamed binge-watcher & book-obsessed wordsmith on a mission to tell stories and write words that empower and inspire others on this amazing and unpredictable journey called life.


We all have a story to tell…

Whether I'm writing fiction, creating content, or blogging, my goal is to encourage you to keep going, keep believing and to never give up as you navigate through the good, the bad, and somewhere in-between.

This space is for you. For those struggling with their faith or self-care while dealing with the unexpected (because life happens). For the weary, grieving, restless folks tempted to call it quits (because life gets messy). For dreamers with a passion to write and pursue their creative calling but wrestle with feeling overwhelmed (because life gets complicated). And for creative souls daring to dream in the midst of chaos (because life requires courage).

This is a place to help you tell your story — the one only you can tell. A place to reignite your passion and hope and remind you that you, too, can overcome.


My Mission

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 write contemporary fiction with edge and heart. I also help others improve their craft, create compelling content and make an impact with their words.


a story-in-progress

It’s definitely possible to survive the unthinkable plot twists in our stories. I'm a firm believer that God can transform the messy and painful parts of our story into something beautiful. Maybe you're rebuilding your life after loss or struggling to hold on to your dreams. I’ve been there and understand the struggle. I want to help you share your story with courage, change your narrative, and create meaningful content. So, if you need a good fiction read, faith boost, inspirational resources, help telling your story, or someone to tell you “YOU got this,” KYM Writes has you covered.
