Girl's Power Surge
Girls ages 6th grade to 12th
Meet The Team
Hello, I am Kim Crouse! I am married to a wonderful husband and we have 4 beautiful children. He is extra wonderful because he lives (and thrives) in a house full of ladies! We enjoy our little town and often take advantage of the lakes and parks. I like to try new
hobbies and I aspire to be many things like a quilter, avid reader, and an incredibly
generous million or maybe billionaire...I’m still trying to decide on that one.
My husband says I can make friends anywhere I go and it might be true because I have always
felt a call on my life to help people and am naturally drawn to them. I have been actively
involved in our local Pregnancy Resource Center, Bright Alternatives, inc., since 2008.
Bright Alternatives has been an avenue for me to use my passion and experience to make
a positive impact on our community and in the lives of those we serve. I love my job and
have great support from my family.
I was so humbled and honored to be asked to join the Girls’ Power Surge team. I have a passion to see women and young ladies living victoriously through the truth of God’s word, and being a part of GPS allows me to share this passion. Someone once said, “a man with an experience is
never at the mercy of a man with an argument.” I believe my passion is fueled by my own
experiences with life and God’s redemptive love.
Being the child of a “broken” and later “blended” home, I craved fatherly love and male
approval. I listened to the world and my own negative talk, both of which are lies of the enemy, and I lost my way. The road I chose to travel left me empty and carrying a lot of baggage. After two unplanned pregnancies, I found myself at the feet of my Savior and learning about the
A fatherly love I had been denying. The truth of God’s immeasurable love for me suddenly
became more real than any lie I had previously believed, and I have to share it with others! It is my heart’s desire to equip young ladies and young women with the knowledge of their
worth through His truth. It’s time we stopped letting the lies of the world steer our lives. He has reclaimed me, restored me, and is redeeming my life. I am happy to give God the driver’s seat
and I look forward to touching lives along my journey with Girls’ Power Surge.
When I think about myself, I picture a duck. Ducks look so graceful as they glide across a lake,
but underneath the water, their legs are moving quickly just to stay afloat. In my walk with
Christ, I envision His love, grace, and mercy as the feet of the duck just keeping me floating. There
have been times when I have lost my way, but I’ve learned to “dive underneath” and seek His love, grace, and mercy to “stay afloat “once again.
I’m nothing special, except that I know that I am created in HIS image. I yearn to share Christ’s
story of salvation, love, grace, mercy, and ultimate restoration for all of us. My heart has always been foryouth, and I have served in youth ministry for several years in various roles.
Once you meet me, then hear me speak, you will probably wonder, where is she from? Well, I
grew up in Lynchburg, Virginia, far from Bradford. My family was unique, both my brother
and sister were born with severe cognitive delays, and then came me. The doctors stated I was
“normal” but that is a relative term.
I was blessed to have two loving parents who taught me how to love Christ and love others as
Christ loves. I accepted Christ into my heart when I was six years old. At the age of twenty, I
committed myself to Christ and vowed to follow wherever He leads me. Let me just say, when
you make a commitment to follow Christ wherever, it is quite a ride!
I’ve been married to Josh Haney for almost fifteen years, and we have two beautiful children;
Brady and Carly. My husband and I have served in ministry together for fifteen years.
I love to play any sport, except golf. I love to be with my family, having dance parties in the
living room, saying prayers at night, and getting snuggles from them. I love to hang out with
women and youth to get to know their story. I enjoy movies, coffee, shopping, making crafts,
and love to be outdoors. I thrive on making connections with others and seeing how God moves in our hearts when we surrender to what He has in store for us.
We all need each other to figure out where He is leading us, and I’m humbled to be a part of the
GPS team. I look forward to getting to know more women and teen girls and see where God
leads us together.
