Meet the SoCal Christian Writers’ Conference’s Second Keynote Speaker: Kim Bangs

At the upcoming Southern California Christian Writers’ Conference that I’ll be directing, we have three wonderful keynote speakers lined up for the three days of the conference. I’d like to introduce one of them to you.

Kim Bangs will be giving our Friday keynote session, “The Astonishing Journey.”

Kim is the Senior Acquisitions Editor for Bethany House (nonfiction) and Chosen, divisions of the Baker Publishing Group (BPG) and is often found at writers’ conferences throughout the year teaching, inspiring and encouraging writers.

Kim enjoys baking, gardening, the “littles” in her life, Disneyland and sports…but loves Jesus and His Church.

We had Kim fill out a fun questionnaire to get to know her a little better. Enjoy!

Fun fact about you:

I have never lived in Colorado but still am the grandest Denver Broncos fan out west.

Favorite pastime:
Spending time with people talking about life, Jesus and enjoying real time.

Something most people would be surprised to find out about you:

I am a licensed pastor.

Besides the Bible, what’s one of your favorite books and why?

Awe, Paul David Tripp. It is a clear reminder to keep our eyes open to all God has placed around us to inspire awe toward him.

One person you would love to meet and why:

Benjamin Netanyhu, a leader who knows how to thrive in a land surrounded by hostility.

One reason you are excited for the SoCal Christian Writers’ Conference:

I am always happy to meet the potential future of our great publishing profession.
