My name is Kimberly Begg. I'm a Catholic wife and mother of five children who is trying to cooperate with God's grace to guide my family to Heaven. I do a little writing—for work, for fun, and, most of all, to try to live in obedience to God's plan for my life.
A few years ago, I learned that Saint Maximilian Kolbe was the favorite saint of one of my heroes, Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko, the beloved Catholic priest who gave his life standing up for truth in communist Poland during the Cold War. Jerzy was a child when he first heard St. Maximilian Kolbe's story and it forever strengthened him.
Inspired by these courageous saints, I felt called to write a book sharing their connection and others. My motivation was not just to tell an interesting story. I wanted to help Catholic parents fulfill their vocation as parents: to help them create a joyful and thoroughly Catholic culture in their homes, to help them pass on the stories that are the birthright of all Catholic children, and to help them raise faithful Catholics who will spend eternity with their Creator in Heaven.
I am incredibly grateful to TAN Books for taking me on as a first-time author. My book—Unbreakable: Saints Who Inspired Saints to Moral Courage—was released on July 25, 2023. It is available and on Amazon and TAN Books. Signed books and my free, 17-page companion study guide are available here.
