Mrs. Kimberly Hahn has been married to Scott since 1979. They met at Grove City College, where Kimberly earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Arts, magna cum laude. While Scott studied to be a pastor, Kimberly earned a Master of Arts in Theological Studies at the same school, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, graduating in May, 1982, magna cum laude. They have six children, three are married with fifteen grandchildren.
Kimberly became a Catholic at the Easter Vigil of 1990 in Joliet, Illinois, after a difficult struggle during the four years following Scott’s entrance into the Catholic Church. She completed a book with Scott on their journey into the Catholic Church entitled Rome Sweet Home: Our Journey to Catholicism, which has been translated into more than twenty languages, including Spanish, French, Czech, Polish, Chinese, Italian, German, and Dutch.
In addition to Rome Sweet Home, Kimberly’s other books include Life-Giving Love: Embracing God’s Beautiful Design for Marriage, and a 4-part series on the Proverbs 31 woman: Chosen and Cherished; Graced and Gifted; Beloved and Blessed; and Legacy of Love. She has also contributed chapters to each of the four volumes of Catholic for a Reason, as well as The Gift of Femininity and The Fabric of Life. She co-authored a book on Catholic home education with Mary Hasson entitled, Catholic Education – Homeward Bound: A Guide to Home Schooling.
Kimberly has enjoyed homeschooling her children for the last twenty-six years and has only recently retired. What was she to do with her new free time? Her husband Scott suggested, “Maybe it’s time for politics?” And with that her campaign was launched. Kimberly has just been elected for a four-year term on Steubenville, Ohio’s City Council as Councilwoman-at-Large.
