Ann Marie King
Ann founded Pink Gems Ministries on September 2014. It was birthed from her struggle as a single whose dream was to get married and then as a newly married women, she realized being a mom and wife was not as easy as she had once thought.
She often felt overwhelmed and like she didn’t have the wisdom she needed to be a good wife and mother. It was then she realized, she needed help.
Eventually, after a few years of searching and growing as a woman of God, Ann discovered keys that helped her understand what her husband and children needed and her quality of life started to improve.
As time went by God called her to the ministry. She recalls, “As I walked across my bedroom one night, God spoke to my heart and said," I want you to go to the Senator Inn and teach the women." She did not feel qualified, but out of obedience took a few baby steps and Pink Gems ministries was born in September 2014 in the State Ballroom.
She has been married to the love of her life, Brian for 30 years and has three great children, Amanda (17), Hannah (21) and Alex (28). Ann live in the great state of Maine and has a passion for sharing the truth of God's word with other women and answering questions that are near and dear to every woman’s heart. Her goal is to reach women in a practical, relevant way through My Pink Gems blogs, videos and yearly conferences.
Director of Connections
Kim is an ordinary country girl from a small town. After losing her dad as an infant she started off life with deep pain in her heart. As a teenager she found herself running into the world to find comfort, and happiness. Trying to fill the voids in her heart in all the wrong places. She developed habits that led her down a very rebellious path. She strived to be recognized, to appear to be a "good girl", to portray perfection,and set goals for approval, and praise all for a temporary fix.
While at Saint Joseph’s Collage of Maine earning a degree for Elementary education she joined Mary Kay. It has turned into a 17 year full time career, reaching peaks of over a half million dollar company, helping hundreds of women establish a business and many to raise up to become leaders. Just before being blessed with a pink cadillac she drew near to God for one last shot to see if He was real, and He drew near to her. A friend randomly sent her a message inviting her to church.
That divine appointment stopped Kim in her racing, and striving tracks. She met Jesus! She discovered she was sinner in need of a savior. Far from a perfect journey but one of forgiveness, mercy, hope and eternal victory. A journey of Gods faithfulness to continuously persist us no matter how far we drift, Jesus is the only one who can fill voids in our heart, and give us HOPE! She is called to be a mom to her son Gavin. They are a duo shining for Jesus. She now works daily for the Lord not for man with her full armor of God on to help Him to take back what the enemy has robbed in women’s lives.

“I love to encourage others. I am a child of the Most High who enjoys wearing red lipstick, has a passion for chocolate, savors a good cup of tea, is barefoot more often than not, and has an eye that occasionally twitches. I am a Momma of many, a wife of fifteen + years, and a research junkie. I write, cook, garden, puddle jump, read, sing in the shower, and mix up my metaphors. Nice to meet you!”
