After experiencing her own divorce in 2001, Kim recorded a CD of songs written to help comfort her own children through their personal tragedy that coincided within days of our nation's tragedy on September 11th. The songs and this book were based on nighttime talks and prayers that Kim actually experienced with her two boys (4 and 8-years old) in the first year post divorce.

A Must-Have For Parents, Church Leaders, Aunts, Uncles.... May 1, 2008
Hope No Matter What: Helping Your Children Heal After Divorce Kim's unique method of connecting with children is so AWESOME in this book. Hill is so tender in the way she brings God's promise of Peace, Love and Hope (no matter what) to children in the midst of their vulnerability. Each devotion and interactive activity reiterates God's love for us and HIS promise that He will never forsake us-NO MATTER WHAT! How COOL is that!!! We as parents, aunts, uncles, church leaders, school teachers, and friends need to be reminded of this as well as we journey through life's bumps. I have shared this book along with Kim's CD by the same name, to several friends who are in the midst of divorce as they comfort their children. Reading and experiencing this book with your child can bring you closer as you explore God's LOVE for each of you through this most difficult time in the life of your family.
This is everything a devotional for kids of divorce should be Apr 30, 2008
This is everything a devotional for kids of divorce should be--short, easy to understand, colorful, comforting and helpful. This is kid-friendly right down to the layout. There are free-form titles and drawings, multi-colored scripture verses, a special space devoted to getting a response to the content, and a concluding prayer that a parent can pray over their child.
This is designed for parents to read with their children. Though it was written with younger ones in mind, children of all ages, and even adults, can benefit from the content. Simple truths, like the ones found here, comfort and encourage when our hearts are hurting.
This collection of 32 short devotions is divided into eight sections. Each section represents one of the eight songs on the Kim Hill CD Hope No Matter What (2002). The CD does not come with the book, but would be worth getting because of the overlapping content.
Each devotion starts with a line from one of the songs. The first song is "Hold Me Jesus" by Rich Mullins. How could I not like a devotional that starts out with the lines from one of my favorite songs?
Stories and thoughts that Hill shared with her children in the aftermath of her divorce follow. It concludes with a verse of Scripture. All of this fills one page. On the adjacent page, there is an attractive space for children to write and draw their response to a simple activity. The book is wider than normal--7 x 9 inches--to provide plenty of space for this interactive section.
It would be easy to breeze through the book quickly, but the recommendation is two or three devotions a week.
I'm not aware of any other books like this. It's a valuable resource for parents and children that have experienced the tragedy of divorce.
Comfort each other Apr 29, 2008
When I realize how faithful my niece, Kim Hill, is to being open about herself to the world in a manner that can only come through the power of God's Holy Spirit, I am amazed. Most of us hide or run from being honest about our troubles; even in the church. From the beginning, Kim was willing to give up her music career by going public about her divorce, rather than hide the fact as some were counseling her to do.
In the years since her divorce, Kim's music, and now her writing, have reflected her crying out to God and the peace that she continues to receive.
Her book, "Hope No Matter What," is a reflection of the manner in which Kim is able to minister to others, especially those who have also suffered the pain of divorce. 1 Peter 4:10-1, "As each one has received a gift, minister it one to another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God...If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen."
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 describes God as the "God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God."
I thank God that Kim has chosen to use the comfort she has received from God to help "comfort those who are in any trouble."
This book will be an excellent resource for any pastor or counselor to help a parent in helping their children heal after divorce.
I have given a copy of this book to my pastor.

Hope No Matter What Apr 28, 2008
Hope No Matter What, Helping Your Children Heal After Divorce by Kim Hill is a very tender and important book. In each chapter, as you read with your children, Kim helps you have words to speak into the hurts, questions and fears most asked by your child. They will know they are normal - and that other people feel the same way they do and other people also need God to help them. If God has helped others, perhaps they can trust Him to do it for them. This book is a comforting book. There are soothing words that will benefit the entire family. I HIGHLY recommend this book. Kim's words will reach deep into your heart.
Long overdue!! Apr 9, 2008
What an amazing tool Kim Hill has provided to help children begin to heal from the pain of divorce. As an elementary school teacher I've watched an overwhelming number of children suffer because of divorce. Several years ago my own child faced the reality that her parents were about to walk separate pathways. Many nights I sat down with her to try and answer all the tough questions her little mind was filled with; questions I didn't always have the answers to. What I would have given to curl up beside her and venture through a book like Hope No Matter What. This book facilitates the process of healing via powerful reminders of God's love and faithfulness. I highly recommend it (and the CD by the same title) to any family walking through loss. Not only will Hope No Matter What help your children heal from the pain of divorce - it'll help prepare them for life's other challenges by teaching them to rest in God's arms and the promise of His love.
