East City Girl
A memoir of growing up Catholic in a small town

East City Girl is the story of a young girl growing up in a small Ontario town influenced by her parents’ Roman Catholic religion and Dutch heritage. It’s a recollection filled with prose, poetry, and pictures from birth to Grade 8 in the 1970s and early 80s. The story unfolds in a “scrapbook” format with diary entries, school projects, and report cards that draw you in from the start and transport you back in time with nostalgic memories.

Review of East City Girl:

David Fisher says, “Kimberley Payne has given the reader an inside look into her upbringing and experiences…growing up in East City in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. She relates what it was like to grow up “Catholic” in a small town and how the influence of her parents and the church positively impacted her life.”

Leisure Time With God
Stories to Grow Your Faith

Leisure Time With God is a collection of devotions from Where Media Meets Faith, Think Snow, Night Stories. and My Journey to the Holy Land.

Can God speak to us through movies, hobbies, travel, and dreams? The Bible is very clear that God can and does speak to us in a variety of ways. Kimberley Payne shares in short, simple stories the truth that God may have something for us to learn about our lives.

Best described as an emotional treasure of personal reflections, each devotional in this book holds a lesson of wisdom that can be applied to one’s life.

Review of Leisure Time With God:

“The ‘ book was a very engaging read. Kimberley Payne’s ironic sense of humour helps the stories unfold. Of particular interest were her stories about her wider family, her love for watching movies, and snowmobiling. With a deep faith, she weaves life and prayer naturally together. I highly recommend this book.”

Review of What’s Your Story?

“Everyone has their own story. Every story is unique and different. I enjoyed reading these accounts of how God met each writer at a critical point in their lives…drawing them into a personal relationship with Himself. We often tend to compare our stories with others and we feel that we don’t really have an exciting testimony to share. The accounts of God’s dealings in the lives of each contributor in “What’s Your Story” vividly demonstrate that His love, grace, and mercy are available to anyone who calls on Him. I encourage you to buy and read this book.”

Review of Tooth for Tooth:

“The author has done a wonderful job of giving the reader a glimpse into the world of the Children’s Aid Society and what is involved when something like this happens. She has done her research and it shows. The nonsense that our main character endures within the legal system are realistic and I’m sure will ring true to anyone who has had to live through such a nightmare. Which makes this story all the more poignant. While this is hard to read because of the subject matter, the end result is a book that will leave you with a good feeling. A highly recommend it!”
