Women are busy, but many are isolated and lonely. Realizing this need in her own life in 1995, Kim Newlen opened her home the first Monday night of the month to women in her neighborhood, church family, friends and acquaintances – really to whoever wanted to attend.
She served one simple dessert full of fat, decaf coffee and tea, a dose of inspiration from God’s Word — and candy for the women to share or eat on the ride home.
One thing she learned is that God’s truth and laughter can mix. Yes… fun and faithfulness go together! It’s a wonderful, practical way for women to remember Biblical truths. Because it was so simple, she knew other women could replicate it and Sweet Monday grew when Kim wrote a year's worth of social ideas and printed them in a simple book.
Sweet Monday can be used in any women’s social setting and is easily adapted to fit the needs of any group, regardless of age, nationality or background. Kim longed for Sweet Monday to encourage women to reach out to the women around them with the sweet aroma of Christ.
And they did – and still do!
Sweet Kim released her first women’s devotional just months before she was called by her Father to live in her eternal home with Him. The One Year® Sweet and Simple Moments with God Devotional® is a must read for anyone who wants to find a way to live a sweet & simple life – following God’s principles and teachings.

We miss Sweet Kim here on earth, but we know that she is living in her heavenly home and spending time with the One who gives us eternal life. And we look forward to the day that we are together again!
Today, we carry on the mission begun by Kim to reach out to women, one sweet invitation at a time for God’s glory. We welcome you to Sweet Monday!
