Kimberly Holmes-Mitchell is a native of Macon, Ga, Founder of From Ashes To Beauty Inc. and a Motivational speaker. She moved away from Macon, GA for 27 years and relocated back to Macon in 2013 “With A Purpose” to helping others heal from mental, emotional and spiritual brokenness.
She is a graduate of Southwest High School (Macon, GA) and has a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. She has over 30 years of Finance/Accounting and Management experience and shared her Corporate professional leadership within the Education Industry at Kaplan, Inc. (Atlanta, GA), Manufacturing Industry at National Linen Services (Duluth, GA) and Medical Industry at Urology Specialists of Georgia (Macon, GA).
In 2015, Kimberly was given the vision from God to start a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization From Ashes To Beauty, Inc. in Macon, Georgia. This organization supports and mentor women and children who are experiencing any form of emotional, mental or spiritual brokenness and empower them to embrace their wholeness and Purpose.
She is a member of The Career Women Network of Macon, The Central Georgia Counsel On Family Violence and Ruth Hartley Mosley Memorial Women Center. She is a volunteer with Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia and partners to serve clients with Macon Housing Authority, Middle Georgia Food Bank, Crisis Line & Safe House, Department of Family and Children Services, Salvation Army. She has served in the community with multiple support agencies and surrounding area churches. She has also participated on several panels with community leaders to bring awareness and resolution about family violence. In 2020, Kimberly received a Certificate of Achievement award from Jackso Entertainment Group for her love, hard work, commitment and generosity towards others in the community.
Kimberly knows that women and children who experience abuse, rejection and displacement at an early age will mentally place themselves in an “unqualified” life status. As a result, they "disqualify" themselves from the best because of the emotional breakdowns from negative exposures and low self-worth. For this reason, she is dedicated to her purpose of reaching as many lives as she can to let others know that no matter who they are, where they come from or what they have gone through... they STILL QUALIFY for the best in life. She strives daily to helping others heal and empower them to embrace their Purpose, Self-Worth and Self-Identity of who they were created to be.. "FREE & VICTORIOUS"!
Kimberly is an over comer of abuse and brokenness so she is convinced this is why God would use her to birth a Vision in the earth to empower others who are currently in or transitioning out of abuse and brokenness. She states that, "As a very young mother, I made a huge mistake of allowing being in a domestic violence relationship and exposed my children to abuse and brokenness so I truly understand and have experienced the battles and struggles of helping to transform children emotional mindsets so they can embrace wholeness, live successfully and fulfill their purpose in life".
Kimberly Commission comes from Isaiah 61:1-3 (NLT):
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord's favor has come, and with it, the day of God's anger against their enemies. To all who mourn, he will give a crown of BEAUTY FOR ASHES, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory (PURPOSE)!!
