Hi, I’m Kim...
I’m an author, speaker, and come-alongside mentor who delights in helping women drink in and pour out the truth and love of God in relational ways.
As you may have guessed...Jesus is my favorite person! That's why getting to know Him, and sharing that experience with others, is what I love best.
I live in Franklin, Tennessee, with my comedian husband Paul, and spend my time juggling writing deadlines, enjoying God-conversations, and drinking cinnamon dolce lattes whenever possible.Learn More

"This book is truly delightful! I was planning to glance and come back to it later, but I was immediately drawn in. It's engaging, funny, helpful, and inviting—like a pumpkin-spice latté on a crisp fall day. It's also everything a first-time discipler needs—real-life stories, relational tools, down-to-earth conversation starters, and scriptural truth—plus an experienced coffee-date discipler to walk you through the process!”

“In an age when Google will find you the recipe, Alexa will order the ingredients, and YouTube will show you how to make the pie, there remains a vital human role in Christian discipleship that cannot be outsourced or digitized. An apprenticeship in the faith is a face-to-face hands-on relationship, and is not something to be left to the experts and professionals. Kim Aldrich shows us that effective disciple-making can be as natural as chatting with a friend over coffee."

"I worked in coffee shops for seven years and have been in the ministry of making disciples for twenty. So I’ve made a lot of coffee and disciples. I’ve also read every book on discipleship I can find, and have heard many theories on what discipleship should look like. We need more books like this that move out of theory into the practical. I highly recommend it to any woman who loves Jesus and wants to make disciples.”
