Kim Olson, Director
From Kim's first volunteer work at a local Pregnancy Resource Center in 1988 to today, she has devoted her heart, passion and ministry to those hurting from a past abortion or feel stuck in the pain of that decision. As she traveled globally the ministry expanded to include Bible study retreats and trainings that seek to address spiritual needs of those suffering from the loss of a child due to miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, illness or accident. In addition, Bible study retreats are offered for prayer, losses of a loved one or loss caused by a lifestyle change (job, move, etc.) I
In 1994 she began leading abortion recovery groups at a Pregnancy Resource Center in Charlotte, NC. Kim then served 8 years as Director of Abortion Recovery Ministry at Real Options for Women in Plano, TX followed by serving for 5 years as Manager of Hope for the Heart's Abortion Recovery Ministry in Dallas, TX. She co-authored with Angie Cote and Teri Reisser the Abortion Recovery Peer Counselor’s Manual (4th edition revised) and the Abortion Recovery Trainer’s Manual formerly known as PACE. Kim's relationship with Hope for the Heart continues on a contract/consultant basis.
In 2012, Kim joined Carolina Pregnancy Care Fellowship as Director of Journey to Freedom. Today, Kim is the Director of The Lake House: Journey-2-Freedom providing weekend retreats and trainings in a former 1800's Victorian Bed and Breakfast. She continues to provide training both nationally and internationally. She has trained for Care Net, Heartbeat International, Life International, Africa Cares for Life, Indiana Right to Life and Canadian Association of Pregnancy Support Services. Kim has developed programs throughout South Africa impacting 12 African countries and in Canadian provinces. In the Caribbean, Kim has trained in Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, and Saint Lucia.
Kim and her husband Jim married in 1993 and live in Southern Alabama. They enjoy bridge, traveling, spending time on the lake with family and friends as well as spoiling their sibling cats Max and Moly.
“Healing is a hallmark of Kim’s anointed ministry. On numerous
occasions, I have seen God use her to help post-abortive women
reclaim their lives—replacing ongoing guilt with forgiveness. . .
replacing their fear and dysfunction with freedom. Kim is one of
the nation’s leading Abortion Recovery Ministry experts—a
sought-after speaker and trainer the world over. . .and for good
reason. I know of no one who is more qualified and capable to
meet any need related to this sensitive topic.”
