Hi, I’m Kim. I’m a native Texan and now a proud Nebraskan. I’ve always loved writing and have wanted to be a stay-at-home mom since late childhood. I’m so grateful for the chance to do both!

My desire was inspired by a columnist for the North Texas Catholic newspaper. She wrote candidly about her family life and how she learned extraordinary lessons from the ordinary circumstances of life, particularly through her children. As a teenager, I remember thinking, “What an amazing way to combine both of my aspirations AND my faith. That’s what I want to do with my life.”

I studied Journalism at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kan., (where I met my husband Jim), and I’ve been writing features for various faith-based newspapers – both as a full-time and freelance writer – ever since.

When my mom, Joyce Nebgen, asked me to start a blog as a resource for her new business – Old Market Neurotherapy – I was apprehensive. Although I’d been telling other people’s stories for years, for some reason telling my own felt intimidating and vulnerable – never mind that a personal column inspired my writing career in the first place!

Mostly, I wondered, “What insight could I possibly have to offer?”

My mom reminded me that as the mother of six kiddos (ages 15 down to baby due in August), I  probably have more to share than I realize…even if it’s just in the form of mistakes I’ve made along the way.

So, thanks, Mom, for the opportunity to follow-up on an old dream. I’m excited to reflect back on my own experience as a mother, and to continue reading and growing into the future.

And thank you, readers and friends, for joining me. Please use the comment box to share your experiences & thoughts. Let’s encourage one another along the way.
