Our Mrs. Idaho 2018 is Kimberly Glyn Zweiger. She is first and foremost a Christian, wife, mother, and a full-time career woman working as a Residential Mortgage Loan Officer in Boise Idaho. She and her husband Greg have been married for 13 years and together they have two spunky and rambunctious boys, 7-year-old, Liam, and 4-year-old, Leo. As a family, they love everything outdoors, including camping, fishing, wakeboarding, and surfing.

Kimberly says she was given a gift by God, overnight, when she awoke at 3:00 am with the ability and desire to write children’s books. Her first published book received second place in the 2016 Idaho Author Awards and is titled “A Skunk Named Perfume.” It is a cute story about a skunk that has been bullied and teased for his smell but comes to realize that he has a purpose and the stench he thought was a flaw is a Godgiven gift to be proud of. Kimberly’s most recently published book “A Lamb Named Lucky” received first place in the 2016 Idaho Author Awards and is about a lamb in a bad situation that, through her trials, finds a new friend along the way and realizes she is even more blessed than she is lucky. The third book in this Sunnyside Series, “The Bunny and the Bully,” is expected to be released in the Spring of 2019.
