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 empower and 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.

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

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, so I know the struggle is real. I designed this space to encourage you to keep going when life happens and remind you to never give up. It's possible to survive the unthinkable plot twists in our stories.  Here, you'll find short stories, writing resources, personal musings on life, and everyday inspiration for your creative life and self-care journey.  

Remember why you started

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 pursue your creative dreams. This is a place to remind you of your why when you're weary, overwhelmed, and ready to call it quits.  A place to help you share your story with courage, change your narrative, and create meaningful content. 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.
