Get to know Kimberly and her amazing family with a heartfelt bio straight from the heart.
Every since I was a little girl, my dream was to write. I remember one year when I received a typewriter for Christmas. I would set for hours perched up in my window seal of my bedroom in my Mom’s tiny apartment creating a story for the day. A neighbor kid, named Adam, would holler up at me to come down and play, and I always replied, “Just a minute let me finish this story!” To say I do not write would be an understatement, and to say I do not write to make readers laugh would be an under achievement for me.
My main goals in life have always been to serve Christ first and foremost to the best of my ability and to be the best mother I could possibly be. My family is truly my heartbeat and my world. I really believe in family and hometown traditions, Santa Claus and Elves on the Shelf, thrift shopping, made-up recipes and homemade pies! My other passions would be to teach children, write anytime possible, play music, and cook the best food you have ever ate. Over the past fifteen years, I have spent my time writing for various churches and producing Christmas and Easter Drama and Musicals and served in youth and music ministry. My husband and I have been serving as the youth pastors at Greenwood First Assembly of God for the last three and half years and I am a praise and worship leader there as well. I am also over Feed the Kids Ministry where I cook for over 50 kids, teens and adults every Wednesday night, and I am the Greenwood area coordinator for Operation Christmas Child through Samaritan Purse.
My husband, Tommy Jay, and I have four beautiful yet wild children. There is never a dull moment if the “Boyd Kids” are around. I have been a resident of Mansfield for almost twelve years and I am a native of Booneville, Arkansas. In 2009, I received my Associates of Art degree from the University of Arkansas Fort Smith, and this past May, I graduated also from UAFS with my Bachelors in General Studies with a major emphasis in English and secondary emphasis in Anthropology. In July, I will begin teaching for VIPKID, which is an international program that will allow me to teach Chinese Children the English language from my home.
I am so excited to write for Resident Press and thank God for this wonderful opportunity. If you have seen me before at any local events, I always have a camera in hand, and now I am excited to put captions to those photos and hopefully bring a smile and a chuckle to your day!
