Hi I'm Kim.

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Kimberly grew up sandwiched between the mountains and the sea of British Columbia, Canada. She wrote her first book when she was seven. She wrote her next book when she was twenty-seven. When asked to account for the years in between she likes to suggest the possibility of alien abduction with as straight a face as possible. In exchange for surrendering her easy-to-spell maiden name “Miller”, Kimberly left University shortly before completing her English degree and married Neil VanderHorst, future eye doctor. The couple claims to love each other, but onlookers suspect that she married him so she could stay home with the kids and write while her daughters play with playdough. Determined to make up for lost time, the 32-year-old author writes a book per year while raising her young family in a neighborhood full of horses, chickens, and people who say "eh" a lot.

Why I am a Mormon

My faith and my understanding of my Heavenly Father's plan for me brings me joy, and helps me make sense of a very conflicted, often chaotic world.

How I live my faith

Like everyone, I'm imperfect. Sometimes painfully so, sometimes laughably so. When focused on gospel teachings my imperfections became points of hope, opportunities for growth and progression. I'm a very introspective person and I often take stock of my weaknesses and failings, and then make goals and strive to be better, kinder, less selfish, more honest, etc . . . I love to look back and see how far I've come, and I try not to feel daunted, but rather hopeful, about how far I have yet to go.
