Kim Maniaci
Executive Director

 

My heart for Walk of Faith House lies in the families lives, not just the one whose life has been caught in addiction– I want and desire for the entire family to walk in freedom in Christ!  I want them to experience, what I have experienced.  I want them to walk away a stronger family unit, to work together and share their testimony for what a great God we serve – One who restores, regenerates, revives!  For each one to get past the blame game, to accept responsibility for their role, to accept and grant forgiveness, to find the reason they walk this planet, to fill the void in their life, that only Christ can fill and learn to live a life that daily allows them to love as Christ has loved each one of us.  

 

After my personal journey of wandering in the desert for 40 years and to see God’s promises to me come to life, is a true miracle.  There was a time when my only hope was “as long there is breath, there is hope”, and yes, that did keep me moving forward and if nothing else breathing, just praying to make it to the next moment, however, I can say after just surviving I am now in a place of thriving, and not because of me, but because of Him!  It did require me to say to Christ, “I am done, I can’t do this anymore, I know there is more, please take me and mold me into what you want!”  And this took me 31 years after the moment I asked Christ into my life – but He never gave up on me, and all the junk, the nonsense, the looking for the void fillers in all the wrong places, were not necessarily fun, but help to mold me into who I am today and I would not trade them for the world.  God NEVER gave up on me and He has not anyone of you either – His plan is so big for each one of us, that we cannot even hope or imagine it!  Keep walking on this walk of faith and be amazed at all God has in store for you!!  To God be the Glory!!!!!!

 

I am married to John and we have a 14-year-old son Luke.   I graduated from Saginaw Valley State with a bachelors degree in Business Management and recently graduated from Highlands College with a certificate of ministry, I am also pursuing a career in public speaking, sharing my testimony and dispelling the yeah buts of life to a life of SO MUCH MORE!

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.  Ephesians 3:20

Board Member

I am a discipleship counselor on staff at Christian Families Today. I am also the Director of CFT’s Freedom from Addiction Program.  I have been on staff at CFT since January of 2010. I live in McDonough, GA. with my wife Yvonne and we have been married for 19 years. We have two children, my step-son Stephen and our son Robby.

I believe in the mission and vision of the WOFH. What has been most impactful is the care and compassion of the leadership team toward those who are the most vulnerable in our society. My favorite aspect of being a part of the board is the camaraderie with other board members stemming from their shared values and convictions to the reality that Christ IS life. What excites me most about the future is the experience, anticipation, and even the suspense which comes with being a firsthand witness to what God is doing to bring the WOFH into fruition. My life verse is Proverbs 3:5-6,  

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight

Advisory Board Member

I am married to Kim Maniaci, and we have a son Luke, and recently have taken some leaps of faith.  I have been in the floor covering business the majority of my working life, but this last year, left that full time, to pursue a business God placed on our hearts, to minister to people in a different way, through t-shirts.  I still do floor covering on the side, while starting our business Sharper4Him - t-shirts with a point. I also serve on the Board for RiverLIfe, coach our son in basketball and lead a couple of teams at our church.  My greatest blessing is to be able to serve other people and be the hands and feet of Jesus in a very tangible way.

I am involved with Walk of Faith House, because I see people struggling with addiction all around us.  As a board member of Walk of Faith House I’m proud to partner with fellow board members and volunteers to help women take a stand against their addictions by pointing them to the Healer; Jesus Christ.  

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!  2 Corinthians 5:17.

Secretary & reStored Manager

I have lived most of my life in Newnan, Georgia. I have a wonderful family; my husband Donnie and I have been married for 6 years, one daughter, one step-daughter and one step grandson.  And the important member of the family our four-legged dog Oakley.  I love the beach or the mountains, anywhere I can enjoy God's beautiful outdoor creation.I love trying my hand at gardening.

I said yes to Walk of Faith House because I have seen what finding the Freedom in Jesus Christ can mean for women.So many women are hurting and holding onto "stuff" that needs to be released in the name of Jesus Christ. Women finding their identity in Jesus and learning how much he truly loves and cares for them is the only way to break all those chains of the past and find that Freedom. Watching all the doors that God has opened through Walk of Faith House to this point has truly been an amazing experience to be a part of and I am so excited to see what He has in store for the future.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11. NIV

I said yes to serving on the Board of Walk of Faith House because I felt that we would make a positive impact immediately.  I also saw an opportunity to become more intentional in where/how I serve the Kingdom of God.  I get excited at the opportunity to combine resources from various locations to make an impact in women's lives to see them walk in complete Freedom in Christ Jesus.

I said yes to serving on the Walk of Faith House board because I felt it was a great opportunity to have a positive impact in my life as well as the lives of others. I have also become more aware of the serious drug epidemic all around metro Atlanta and we have the answer that women need, Jesus.  And I believe through this experience we can do great things as we collaborate with other board members.  I am looking forward to being part of the solution and watching hurt hearts heal!
