Fearless and Fancy Free began in 2011 with unique meaning behind it. In most conversations, Fearless communicates a radical, no holds barred outlook with no limits catapulted by a brute strength, demonstrating a force and drive that will not give up. The vision behind the Fearless Ministry came from a different place, as the founder of Fearless and Fancy Free, Kim Hamilton, says:
“In the journey of my life, there were roads I was forced to travel where I adamantly did not want to go. On many of those roads, I was afraid. To survive, I learned how to “buck up” and appear strong and walk confidently. That was utterly depleting and exhausting!
Because of my own stubbornness, I had to learn (most times the hard way) how to not run from the fear, but rather embrace it, hold it and lay it down, piece by piece. I wrestled with fear. That wrestling at times felt like prying my fingers loose to let fear go. I slid into a place where I knew God so well, and trusted Him so much, that I could live, from the inside out, a life without fear because I had put it all in the hands of the gracious God who made me and loves me fiercely. This unique kind of fearless comes from a place of brokenness, of humility where the goal is not to conquer but to surrender.
That posture, right there, is where the FancyFree part comes in. When fear isn’t a driving force in life, there is a freedom, a strength, a deep joy that wakes you up in the morning. Fearless and Fancy Free: humble strength and freedom, confident peace and joy, fire and vision”.
You may not think you or your organization deal with any aspect of fear – but chances are great you do, as it comes in many forms: pride, cliches, attitudes, work ethic and control issues. It can be seen in lack of performance, conflict resolution issues, and the list goes on. It doesn’t matter what kind of company, non-profit, family business or church you lead. If and when the concept of vulnerability and humility is grasped, it opens the door to a whole new way of working proactively, passionately and leading powerfully!
Vision. Contentment. Humility. Boldness. Learners. Daring. Deep. Creative. Strong. Focused. Aware. Loving – are those words that describe you or your team? Those words soar when fear is not present. Wow! With people like that on our teams and in our families, great things will happen!
Kim is passionate about teaching, coaching, speaking, motivating and encouraging people of all ages, and teams of all sizes, to be more fearless and experience a fiercely free attitude that can embrace growth.
