Joyfuly equipping believers to thrive in Christ
Kim is an author, speaker, teacher, and comedian whose approach to the Christian life is fun-loving, exuberant, and at times even a bit outside the box. Nonetheless, her commitment to the timeless truth of Scripture is relentless, and her greatest joy is in equipping believers to fully embrace the unique calling Christ has on their lives.
Her speaking style is authentic and relatable, and she engages the audience from the moment she hits the stage. It’s like sitting down to coffee with one of your best friends – who just happens to be funny, insightful, and passionate about Jesus! A storyteller at heart, Kim takes the audience on a fascinating journey through her own experiences – some ordinary, some ridiculous, some heartbreaking – and weaves into her stories the healing balm and timeless truths that come straight from Scripture and an intimate relationship with Christ. She’s especially gifted at teaching complicated truths in a practical way that leaves the listener encouraged, equipped, and excited to put into practice what they’ve learned.
After years of being married to a stand-up comedian, it became apparent that a penchant for laughter ran in the family! For the past several years, Kim has brought hilarity and joy to a variety of audiences while sharing the story of the 20-year identity search that led her from depression to despair to the foot of the cross. Kim continues to watch in amazement as God turns the “mulch” of her wasted youth into an incredible ministry and passion for discipleship.
She is co-author of The Pastor Driven Wife: Stories of God’s Faithfulness from the Mundane to the Miraculous and originator of the Laugh & Learn Workshops and Devotions in Motion Scripture cards. She speaks on a variety of topics, regularly performs a one-woman show called Joy in the Middle, and has launched a discipleship blog called The Growing Edge. She and her husband, comedian and musician Paul Aldrich, currently make their home in “middle” Tennessee.

What Others Say
“The moment I met Kim Aldrich, I knew she was a woman I needed to have speak at one of my events. Kim is authentic, funny and has the ability to connect with both men and women. She truly has a gift of speaking and comedy and it is an honor to endorse and recommend her highly for any event. She is a joy to work with!” Rosemary Fisher, founder of Recycled Women Ministries, Franklin, TN
“I can’t say enough about Kim as a speaker and a fervent and inspiring teacher, musician, and comedian. She endeared herself to our women and had an immediate connection with the entire group. She let us know her (something I find refreshing in a retreat speaker), and took pleasure in getting to know our women on a personal basis. There were many times throughout the weekend that I found her praying with and ministering to someone. And…we laughed a lot! Kim has a deep love for God and His Word. It was evident from our first meeting that she desires for each woman she comes into contact with to find a joyful relationship with her heavenly Father.” Karen Cron, Director of Women’s Ministries at Seeker’s Chapel in Fullerton, CA
“Kim is funny, motivating, and inspirational, but her integrity and genuine love for people is what put her on our short list of people we would invite back to minister.” Pastor Chuck Russell & Co-Pastor Paula Russell, New Hope Christian Center, Newport, KY
“I was the director of the 2011 So Cal Singles Network Retreat and a follow-up Summer Reunion event. Kim was a big hit at the retreat, which led us to ask her to come back and do the Reunion event. Kim did a great job at our Reunion event with her ‘Joy in the Middle’ comedy/message. Everyone can identify with being ‘in the middle’ and Kim’s presentation was a great encouraging biblical message of hope to find joy in Christ during these times.” Greg Svalstad, Director, 2011 SoCal Singles Network Retreat/Summer Reunion Event, Southern California
“Kim was a show stopper at our recent Live Your Dream Seminar in Southern California! I look forward to working with her again.” Evan Money, founder of the LIVE YOUR DREAM Seminar
