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 6 children and 20 grandchildren. One son, Father Jeremiah Hahn, was recently ordained to the Diocese of Steubenville.
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 titled Rome Sweet Home: Our Journey to Catholicism, which has been translated into more than 20 languages.
In addition to Rome Sweet Home, Kimberly wrote Life-Giving Love: Embracing God’s Beautiful Design for Marriage. In addition, she wrote a four-volume 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 to The Gift of Femininity and The Fabric of Life.
Kimberly homeschooled her children for 26 years. During that time she co-authored with Mary Hasson a book on Catholic education called Catholic Education: Homeward Bound. When she retired from homeschooling, she ran for Steubenville City Council and has won two terms as Council-at-Large.
Recently, Kimberly launched a new podcast, Beloved and Blessed, available at belovedandblessed.com, and has an EWTN radio show called Beloved and Blessed with Kimberly Hahn.
