Testimonials For Coach Kimberly Giles:

"I just wanted to tell you that I stumbled across one of your articles today, which linked me to another article, and they were both fantastic!  One was on the topic of being intimate with your spouse, and the other was about warning people of the dangers of media and marriage.  Both very "hush-hush" topics, but a very real and enormous problem in our society.  
Please keep up the great advice.  The comments may not reflect it, but your audience is huge, and you are helping a lot of people who didn't even know where to start. "  -Nat & Joe Christensen

"After years of searching for the right kind of direction, only Kim and her program have opened my eyes to the real me. I could never have imagined how much of an amazingly valued individual that I am without Clarity Point. No therapist, religious leader, or book has given me the insight that I’ve received from this program." - M. Hollingshead, UT
 
"Kim has helped me to face the "fears" in my life that was keeping me in a place of constant drama and chaos. I found that I was not living my life with trust, and consquently I was trying to control EVERYTHING! I have found more joy, more peace since I started this Coaching. I have a clear picture of who I am for the first time in my life, and the best part is that I "like" who I am.  I am giving myself permission to expound on my talents, and strength.  I am growing consistently in having respect for myself, and because of that I find that I am getting the respect that I deserve.  After many years of self-reflection and striving to like myself, I feel that I have made more progress than I ever imagined. Kim is so perfect for giving me the advice, and talking me through the circumstances that I deal in my life.  I would and have recommended this Life Coaching to anyone who will listen." 
G. M. UT
 

"When I think of Kim and Claritypoint Coaching, the first thing that comes to mind is "a blessing". I was in the darkest time of my life when God brought an angel to me. Having Kim as my Life Coach for 12 weeks kept me getting up in the mornings. Day by day, week by week Kim managed to have me see my strength, courage, beauty and all the wonderful gifts I have to give to the world. She also gave me tools that I can use for the rest of my life. I am stronger, wiser and happier than I ever thought possible and it will only get better from here. I will be forever grateful for this wonderful being."  - Dawn Corridore, NC

"Working with Kim made an amazing difference in my life.  I knew there were things that weren’t working in my life, but I wasn’t ale to understand why.  Kim had the tools to help me be able to actually see the things I needed to change.  There were times I could see what needed to be done differently, but I wasn’t willing to give up some old patterns or habits, and she was right there, helping me see the “games” I was playing.  I am grateful to have met her, and to have had the opportunity to work with her!"  - Brittney Gonder

"I always considered myself a strong individual.  I knew what I wanted to accomplish in my life, had deadlines for when that was to occur and knew exactly how that was to happen.  At least I thought. I was in a rut.  My career was going nowhere, I was mad at a lot of people including God, and I had more excuses for why I couldn't do it then I could count.  My wife gave me Kim's number and said that I needed to call her.  I was very skeptical and at first, feeling that no one could help me.  I was wrong and I am so glad that I was.  Kim's coaching methods are different then anything I had ever experienced.  She told me that I would be the one to make the changes and not her.  By the time coaching was completed, I felt better about everything.  I know who I am truly am and where I am going.  I understand my life better and feel that I am a better person.  The successes I seek in my life are a process and it is only a matter of time before I accomplish what I aim to achieve. My life is perfect (for me) and the lessons of the past and those to come are perfect.  They are helping me to grow into who I really am.  There is great comfort in knowing yourself, and I have Kim to thank for that gift.  That confidence was a long time coming.  Thank you Kim for all your help."
- J. Evans

 Kim,
   "I attended a meeting tonight and heard you speak!  I just wanted to THANK YOU and tell you that you made a big difference in my life.  I have continued thinking about the things you taught all night and I am confident it will be a life changer for me. Thank you so much for giving of your time and  gifts to us. You are teaching true principles and it felt so good! You are truly a beautiful person and radiate the love that you teach about!  Thank you again.   May God bless you and your family forever!"
 - J. Hansen   

 

"I was first introduced to Kim at a Relief Society Enrichment evening. The information presented that night really touched my heart and I contacted the coach, Kim, shortly after. I have been in coaching with her for the last year and I’ve learned things about myself, my Heavenly Father, the gospel and life in general that I don’t believe I would have learned any other way.  I’ve been able to see that sometimes I process information through fear, which either leads to judging someone or having angry & hurt feelings about a person or myself.  When this happens, things usually don’t turn out well. But when I’m able to choose love and trust, as Kim has taught me to do, and things don’t work out as I wanted them to, I can see others with compassion and empathy, instead of judgment and anger.  I would recommend Coaching with Kim Giles to everyone, it is truly inspired.  I believe many people live in fear and guilt, never feeling good about who they are, for that is where I was, yet Kim taught me to see my value, recognize my talents, see others with compassion, and trust in my Heavenly Father in all things. I’ve learned more in Coaching this past year than I’ve probably learned in my lifetime.  It isn’t easy, but it is definitely worth it!"  -  J Griffin

 

 "Kim, I can't thank you enough for making the trip to Heber to speak to our Relief Society.  Today I have had many sisters call and tell me how much they enjoyed the meeting.  You are such a delightful beautiful woman with so much to share.  Thank you for inspiring us to be better women in the Gospel!    - Relief Society President in Utah

 

"Kim is an awesome coach and a very talented communicator.  Her compassion and ability to listen help make coaching with her a very constructive experience. Kim’s unique ability to allow the spirit to guide her while remaining focused on me was amazing. Kim has been instrumental in helping me truly put my past behind me, allowing me to live more fully in the present."

How to help your teen-ager deal with the death of a classmate Last Updated on 2012-01-17 13:14:08   What makes these situations difficult for parents is… you can’t make it better.  Your teen is going to experience pain and anguish as they process through this and all you can do is be there. They may feel depressed, angry, confused or anxious. If this is their first close encounter with death, there will also be a loss of innocence.  They now grasp the reality that people die, even people they love, and this can be frightening. More than anything, they need you to be there to listen. You can share your own feelings but try to focus on asking questions about what they think and how they feel. The best way you can be there to offer support – is to listen. During this time some teens begin to feel concerned about their safety. This is a good time to ask questions about situations where they may be at risk. Let them tell you ways they... More »
Teaching children without threats or bribes Last Updated on 2012-01-17 13:13:14   The safest way to make good parenting choices is to base them on universal principles of truth. One universal principle says there are two forces in the universe - God (love) and Satan (fear). Every choice is motivated by one of these two emotions. If you are being motivated by fear you are usually focused on avoiding pain or losing what you have or could have. You may feel it is something you “have to do” to prove your value. Fear motivation produces action upfront, but eventually it makes you feel resentful and rebellious about the task because your heart isn’t in it. Love motivation feels different. If you are motivated by love, you are focused on making good decisions that give to you or give service to God or other people. You want to do this thing because you love how it makes you feel. There is no “have to” or... More »
LIFEadvice: Refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person. Last Updated on 2012-01-17 13:12:26   Question: I have a sister who is very difficult to deal with. She has decided that my parents and I treat her badly and are terrible people. She talks about us behind our backs and tells people how horrible we are. The thing is, we haven’t done any of the things she says we did. She has created a reality in her mind that never happened. We have tried to reason with her but she says we are just trying to manipulate her. She is the manipulative one - but refuses to see it. Do you have any advice on this situation? Answer: The human mind is truly an amazing and frustrating thing. It can literally alter reality so we can see things the way we want to see them.   Dealing with someone who has created their own reality is tricky. Once the mind creates these alternative realities, it becomes absolutely committed to being right about them. It must... More »
