Author and Christian Life Coach, Kevin Hover, describes himself as “an ordinary man who has lived an extraordinary life.” He grew up in rural northwest Ohio and is a proud graduate of The Ohio State University. Prior to becoming an author, Kevin spent over twenty years in the corporate world where he served as Senior Vice President at Citigroup. His career as an internal business consultant allowed him to use his leadership skills to encourage others and guide them through the change management process.

Kevin’s desire for writing began later in life when he began to journal on a regular basis. As he developed his writing skills and reflected on his faith journey, he began to sense a need to share his story with others within the Christian community who might be experiencing the same kinds of challenges and struggles of integrating faith into daily life. His faith, career, and life-altering events have helped him discover his true passion—helping others experience God in their day-to-day living. He lives in Columbus, Ohio with his wife, Carrie, and three daughters: Meredith, Chloe, and Sarah.


As a Christian Life Coach, Kevin is passionate about helping individuals discover what it means to live an abundant life and help them reach their true potential. His passion developed through his own personal journey of leaving an executive position in the corporate world to pursue a career with much greater meaning and influence.
