Hi! I'm Christine.

Nice to have you here! I'm an entrepreneur, business consultant, designer, & mom of 2.
I created Design Life Inspired so that it could be a place for you to come for inspiration and encouragement as you discover your God-given dreams and walk into the purpose that God has called you into.

Uncover Your God-Given Dreams

Whether you are still in the process of discovering what you are meant to do in your life, or you’re already in it, we all need inspiration, encouragement, and words of faith to propel us in the direction God has planned for us.

Life is filled with many ups and downs, and it’s in those moments when you need an uplifting word, my hope is that this can be a place for you to find inspiration and a fresh fire for you to pursue the things God has placed in your heart.

I’ve spent my life uplifting, inspiring, encouraging and empowering others one-on-one. God has placed it on my heart to now take my words of encouragement to more people through this blog, programs, books, coaching, and speaking.

If you’ve never had someone encourage you to pursue that God-given dream of yours, well, you’re here now. I’m here to root for you, to confirm what God has been sharing with you, to remind you of who you are in Christ, and to help move you into action to step into all that God has created you to be.

For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:10

My Mission

It is my mission to see more people living their lives to the fullness of what God has designed them to be. No more fear, doubt, insecurities, excuses, or anything else that stands in the way from you becoming the person God intended you to be. We each need to rise up and take our position in the Kingdom and step into the calling He has given each one of us.

We are all unique and have a unique role to fulfill. Each role is very important, no matter how behind-the-scenes it is, or how public it is. Every single role is valuable and is a blessing to the rest of us.

The world needs you to step out and share those gifts with others.

God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.
1 Peter 4:10

My Story

I've been dreaming with God since high school, and He has led me to places I never thought I'd go. From tech to design to fashion, food, and entrepreneurship, it's been quite a journey of gaining skills and working with large corporations, all the way to to seeing the inner workings of small startups and even famed legends of different industries.

Getting in behind closed doors of so many different businesses and educational institutions has given me quite the perspective on how different industries work, with different work cultures, people, methods, processes, and styles of management.

I've seen what's effective, where things could be improved, and what makes some leaders truly great. God moved me from Chicago to New York City and now to Dallas, where He has now called me into new territory and to help His people step out into what they are called to do.

A Little Bit About Me

I am a multi-passionate creative, tech-saavy, business woman who has an intense love of learning, creating beautiful things, and inspiring others.

Business & IT Consulting

I worked as a consultant for Accenture in the Global Architecture and Core Technologies group. I also have my MBA in Sustainable Enterprise, where I studied companies that cared about the triple bottom line: People, Planet, & Profits.



Travel Wanderlust

I have a serious love of travel -  so much so that I created a family travel blog called The Globetrotting Family.

Innovation Planning &
Product Design

I have a Masters in Design from the Institute of Design in Chicago, where I studied Design Planning, Communications Design, and Human-Centered Product Design. I went on to do user research, information architecture, and user experience design for Yahoo!, Accenture, Microsoft, Sapient, and Leo Burnett.

Health Advocate

I'm a certified health coach, and went to a health-supportive culinary school in NYC to delve deeper into cooking for healing, having the opportunity to work in the kitchen of Eleven Madison Park and Jean-Georges' restaurant, Nougatine. Health and wellness will always be part of my lifestyle, and I'll advocate for your health too.

Fashion Design

After business and design school, I went to NYC to study fashion design at Parsons, and it truly felt as intense as the show, Project Runway. After graduation and working at DVF and a fashion startup,  I created and launched a baby product line called Little Kims.


Arts & Crafts

 I have a love of art and making beautiful things. I share my art and craft pursuits at Christine Kim Art and Christine Kim Studio.

Let's Work Together

Whether you're struggling with direction, confidence, or implementing your idea, let me support you on your journey to help you get to your destination. If there's one thing I know really well, it's how to confidently step into new and unknown territory. Even as an introvert, I've done it many times, and so can you! God has called you to something greater. It's time to answer that call.
