Kim Anthony has been active in Christian ministry for over twenty years and she is currently on staff with Athletes in Action. Anthony served as Chaplain for the Miami Dolphins Wives for 10 years and continues to coach and disciple the wives of NFL players, head coaches and executives around the League. In addition, Anthony’s ministry includes aiding women from all backgrounds in overcoming past pain, working through self-esteem issues and discovering and walking in their purpose.
Today, Anthony travels the country using her gift of communication to speak to audiences ranging from inner-city youth and the incarcerated to corporate executives. She has also spoken at top universities such as UCLA and the University of Miami, and in churches including Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California. Her message is one of hope, forgiveness and purpose, along with practical ways of applying God’s Word to our everyday lives. Anthony has been featured on several national radio and television programs. Her debut on Focus on the Family received such a positive response from their listeners, that Focus has chosen to re-air the broadcast featuring Kim Anthony on December 5th as a part of their "Best of the Best" series of 2012.
One way Kim is having a notable influence on others is through her book, Unfavorable Odds. In this memoir, she shares her story of not only overcoming the unfavorable odds of being a 5’7” African-American gymnast, from a low-income, urban community, but also the challenges she faced being surrounded by drugs and violence. The story is eye opening, in that it candidly describes the adverse circumstances in which many urban youth find themselves. Yet it is equally uplifting, as it chronicles Kim’s journey to escape the cycle of hopelessness that pervaded her everyday life. In the book, she reveals the keys she used, to overcome the obstacles she faced, in a way that anyone can apply to his or her own life. Unfavorable Odds is a book that crosses social, economic and cultural barriers. It feeds the soul of the reader with a drive to persevere and the courage to overcome.
Kim Anthony lives in Ohio with her husband Corwin Anthony, the National Director of Pro Ministries for Athletes in Action, and their two teenage boys.
