Kim Harms has a degree in English: Literary Studies with a journalism emphasis from Iowa State University. She has nearly two decades of experience in freelance writing, and she speaks to women’s groups on a variety of topics.
Harms is under contract with Familius Publishing for her first book, Life Reconstructed: A Girlfriend’s Guide to Mastectomies and Breast Reconstruction which will be released in Spring 2021.
A breast cancer survivor who has undergone a bilateral mastectomy and breast reconstruction, Harms’ first-hand knowledge of her subject allows her to connect with women who are experiencing all of the physical, emotional and relational challenges that breast reconstruction brings.
Harms was previously a regular contributor to nationally known Today’s Christian Woman magazine, and she has written for CT Women, Guideposts, Chicken Soup for the Soul and Creation Illustrated among other publications.
What I love about Kim’s writing is she is able to bring rich insights into the context of everyday life—all with a tone that is warm, personable, and inviting, connecting with readers almost as if they are her friends. Kim naturally integrates practical tips and creative ideas into her discussion of various topics, helping readers simultaneously go “deep” into the topic at hand while also providing them concrete ways to apply the ideas into their daily lives. Able to navigate both fun, light-hearted topics as well as serious or even painful subjects, Kim Harms is a versatile writer whose tone and approach resonate with female readers.

Concise. Touching. Impactful. These are all words that describe the work of Kim Harms. Her writing spans a wide spectrum bringing a deep and touching relationship between herself and her readers. – Cindy Sproles, author Mercy’s Rain, Managing Editor SonRise Devotionals and Straight Street Books
Kim Harms keeps it real. She doesn’t mind addressing some tough topics but the warmth of her character and the gentleness of her voice makes reading about those topics palatable. Kim faced a health issue that most women her age don’t even think about, but she did so with grace. As she worked her way through the myriad of emotions a cancer diagnosis brings, she went public on her blog, bringing awareness to breast cancer. Her strength and faith brought hope to other women struggling with the same thing.”- Mary Potter Kenyon, author of “Chemo-Therapist: How Cancer Cured a Marriage,” and the award-winning, “Refined By Fire: A Journey of Grief and Grace”
