GREETINGS! MY NAME IS KIM GILLESPIE
I hail from the great Windy (and freezing) City of Chicago, but God weaved my story to include stays in Dallas, Orlando, Nashvillle area and now Richmond, California ((East Bay).
My career turns are just as fun (and varied) from a job trainer to elementary/junior high teacher to missionary and event planner to freelance writing/stay/play at home mom.
Although I initially earned a degree in economics (from Loyola University in Chicago), I discovered while at Dallas Seminary that I am an educator and writer at my core. I love telling stories about life – weaving lessons that are found – be they inspirational, biblical, or practical. I also love to laugh, travel and explore, so you will find some of that here as well.
Most of my stories involve at least one person from this amazing crew. I am married to my own personal “Macguyver”, tech master and creative genius, Reggie. Chances are if you really like a photo or video found here, he had something to do with it. I am mom to 5 year old marine biologist and storyteller extraordinaire, Enoch, and 3 year old twins Isabella and Issa – who are totally different, yet fascinatingly connected.
Yes. My life is busy and my hands are full.
Thank you for stopping by.
If you are wondering where to head next, here are a few of my favorite posts.
