Kim at age 10 printing her "Neighborhood News"
I’m Kim, the woman behind the words of Wow Dee Wow. 

I’m an advocate for homeless elderly, a writer, speaker, lover of words and especially God’s Word.

FUN JAX FACTS: 
  • Born in Vincennes, Indiana, as was Red Skelton. The city has named a bridge after him, but nothing after me so far.
  • I’m a ’57 model. It was a good year for Chevys and Jacksons.
  • Raised in the “holy lands” of Palestine (Illinois) 
  • Youngest of the original Jackson Five: Charles, Doris, Judy, Doug and Kim. 
  • Grew up hearing the phrase “Get the dictionary and look it up,” which I believe birthed my love of words. 
  • Lived in Illinois, Virginia, Ohio, Florida, and North Carolina. I’m not running from the law, it just looks like it. 
  • Worked as a waitress, corn detassler, youth minister, editor, movie theatre cleaner, estate sale helper, writer–in-residence, fitness club manager and concierge at an assisted living. 
  • I’m a person who is not married. (Single is a Wendy’s hamburger.) 
  • Not only am I an Aunt, I’m a great one. I have two nephews, a niece, two great-nephews, a great-niece, two great-grand nephews and a great-grand niece!
  • Sold my house nearly a couple of decades ago and lived with a variety of hospitable friends for almost 20 years while "traveling light." Currently enjoying living in my own little apartment in historic downtown Concord, North Carolina.
  • Confident I have the world’s best friends.
  • Survived a wreck involving my car, a deer and a semitrailer. Grateful doesn’t begin to describe it.

Each week I write a BOG (Brag On God) post. My prayer is that my words will invite you to brag on God, too. And together we'll make God smile.
