What Others are Saying
It was a wonderful addition having Kim on the speaker team for one of our Thrive conferences. She’s enthusiastic, passionate, and well prepared. The attendees in her session walked away with insightful tidbits on how to mother well.
Executive Director Arise Ministries
Kim has a discerning spirit and is full of such wisdom. Her stories about life invoked smiles, tears and a sense of wonder as we were prompted to think about life and God on a different level.
Kim shared so much of her heart as she spoke of her children with disabilities with gentle, loving, heartfelt words. Her experience as a classroom teacher, a mom of children with special needs and her desire to maximize the potential and life of children with disabilities is articulated in her words and carried out in her actions.
If Gathering Small Group
Having known Kim for 30+years, I have seen God reveal His love and patience to those He brings into her life.
Kim writes and speaks from a place of experience, uplifting and encouraging those in her life. She is a persevering soul as seen in her relationship to her family.

President, Scope Ministries International
The level of patience that Mrs. Cusimano showed each day promoted a classroom environment where students felt safe, at the same time setting high expectations for each student individually. Mrs. Cusimano's passion for children with disabilities reflects what kind of woman she strives to be each day.
Team Lead/Supervisor, Work Colleague
Kim was an invaluable member of the special education team. Her innate understanding, empathy, and compassion enabled her to meet students at their individual levels, foster trust, and help them flourish at their personal best.
