Kim Malchuk considers herself an ordinary woman, a storyteller, a motivational coach/speaker. When cancer took her husband, Mel, during the height of their romance, Kim made a choice to keep ‘Tasting the Rain’ despite her overwhelming loss. She then embarked on a poignant, soul-searching journey that led her to a place of rediscovery, peace and hope. Learning to trust her feelings and pursue her dreams, Kim turned her personal tragedy into personal empowerment, reawakening her spirit to love, laughter and living a life of inspired purpose.
Kim was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and is the youngest of seven children. Having been raised in a dysfunctional, oppressive home, Kim’s early years were infused both with fear and with the hope of a brighter future. Living up to the “Tiger” spirit of her Chinese Zodiac sign, Kim recognized from a very young age that her passion for life would ultimately overcome the obstacles she faced.
Recently named one of Manitoba's Top 10 Best Sellers for 2010 & honoured with a 1st place win in The Royal Dragonfly Book Awards for 2011, Kim shares her secrets to success openly, with charming “Kiminitions” that define hope, happiness and healing. Challenging audiences to embrace her “Why Not Now?” philosophy, Kim is an outspoken believer in the role our thoughts play in governing the course of our lives.
Both exuberant and insightful, Kim is committed to healthy living. She is an avid athlete, enjoying semi-competitive softball, volleyball, badminton and bowling. Also a lover of the outdoors, she enjoys camping, traveling and skydiving. Tasting Rain is Kim’s first book, but there is definitely more down-to-earth wisdom on the horizon…
