Spiritual Two-By-Fours and Other Wake-Up Calls by Kimberly Rooney

Spiritual Two-By-Fours and Other Wake-Up Calls

by Kimberly Rooney

Are you feeling stuck, unfulfilled, and without purpose? Do you feel like a cast member, deck crew, employee, or stagehand in your own life?

In this book, author Kimberly Rooney shows you how to take control of your life and become your own director, captain, CEO, choreographer, and policymaker. It’s the wake-up call you’ve been longing for—the doorway to finding your inner strength and voice.

Kim’s own dance with adversity began at age twenty-nine, when she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis—which she affectionately refers to as “Arthur.” In Spiritual Two-by-Fours, she shares her journey—her “dance with Arthur”—to find the mix of “gifts” that made her director and choreographer of her life. With openness and vulnerability, she shares what you need to know so that you too can overcome any adversity—whether physical, emotional, or spiritual.

Whether you have created your challenges or they have “cut in” to your life dance, you get to choose how you respond. You get to take responsibility for your happiness, inner peace, and overall well-being.

You have what it takes. You have the power within. And you can shift your life to make it spectacular. So make yourself head policymaker of your own life and get ready for the ride—knowing that Spiritual Two-by-Fours will guide you every step of the way.


Kim Rooney has danced with Arthur (rheumatoid arthritis) since 1995, having received the diagnosis at age 29. As an athletic, adventurous young woman, wife, and mother, the news of having to deal with fatigue, destroyed joints, and chronic pain was devastating. Her confidence was directly linked to her physical abilities and Kim became consumed by anxiety and fear of the future.

As questions of "Who will I be?" and "What will I do?" took centre stage, the fear - and the nudge that there was more to all this - opened Kim's mind and set her on a journey to healing, responsibility, and some pretty unique adventures. Now Kim sees 'Arthur' as one of her greatest gifts in life; a journey that illuminated her purpose.

Kim's passion is to inspire others to find their personal power and radiate happiness from the inside out. She also enjoys anything outdoors, reading, biking, meditation and all things that will help her grow as a person. Her bucket list includes following her wanderlust spirit to see and learn more about the world, to skydive at least one more time, enjoy many fires on the beach, and to live in Hawaii.

Currently Kim lives in Minneapolis, MNwith her husband, daughter (when she is home from college) and two dogs. She is working on a video series called "Konvo's with Kim," and looks forward to writing her second book. Kim volunteers for the Arthritis Foundation and is working towards sponsoring camps for kids with arthritis. Her dreams to inspire include; producing meaningful TV to promote change, host a talk show with others who inspire, bring awareness to Arthritis.
