Kimberly Faith
Monday January 13, 2020



Kimberly Faith Lowe is a successful lawyer, mother of three children, servant of God, author and singer/songwriter.
I’ve had an extremely busy law practice for over 20 years and currently have offices in Waynesville and Houston. I had no idea that I would ever write and record music or become an author. It all began about five years ago when I really began to seek to know God. I started spending quality time with Him every day and as I did, He began teaching me practical lessons. I began texting them to my children every morning. Soon, they would ask me to add their various friends to the text list. Little by little the text message group grew. About six months into writing the devotionals, people began to ask me to put them in a book. So that’s what happened. I was blessed to use illustrations drawn by local 5th graders to illustrate each chapter. Amazingly, God gave me devotionals every day for years. We set up a website to post them on: I published the first book under the pseudonym “Malachi” because I really wanted God to receive the credit for the work—after all, it is His. However, many of my readers have pushed back on that idea because they’ve made the very legitimate point that the devotionals need to have a transformed life to connect the testimony to the message. I agree. The second volume was published under my singer/song writer name “Kimberly Faith.”

Kim’s latest book is entitled:


Essential Faith Volume II


Essential Faith is a daily devotional book written from the author’s personal experience of her relationship with God. Kimberly wants this book to inspire others to deepen their own relationship with God. She takes everyday problems and writes about how God solved them in her life. Those who read this book will find themselves opening it each day with eagerness and re-reading sections to take with them during the day.It will richly bless their lives and forever change the way they relate to God.

“The Richest Relationship” from Daily Devotional January 1st – “The New Year is beginning today. Does it give you a sense of hope and anticipation? Although I’ve always enjoyed the refreshment of a New Year, knowing God more personally has made the newness even more exciting! When we fall deeply in love with God, we are swept away by His unfathomable love and incredible wisdom. We desire His guidance for all our decisions. We learn to allow God to lead us—like a small child—in the power and peace of His purpose.”
