ROWAN COUNTY, KY – From her home in Rowan County where she is enjoying time with her family after spending six days in jail, Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis said, “I am deeply moved by all those who prayed for me. All I can say is that I am amazed and very grateful. I am enjoying spending time with my husband, my family, and my three dogs. I have also been spending time reading boxes of letters expressing support and prayers from people around the country.”

Today, Kim has been going through the hundreds and hundreds of letters sent to her at the jail. “I haven’t even made a dent in the piles of letters,” she said. Kim continued:

I am overwhelmed that people took the time out of their busy lives to write and tell me that they are standing with me. Every letter has been kind and encouraging. I am heartened that God’s people are not huddled up in a corner, but they are standing strong. Standing begins on our knees. I have no doubt that God answers prayer. God is so real to me. He has transformed my life.

I tell the ladies who I visit in jail, “Jesus is a gentleman. You have to invite Him into your life. But once you fall in love with Jesus Christ, a different world opens.”

Mrs. Davis concluded, “I love God, love people, and love my work. I hope we will continue to respect these values and that America remains a place where all three can live in harmony.”

Kim Davis will rest with her family and return to work on Monday.
