About Kirk Walden

Kirk Walden, speaker and author

I was born in the suburbs of Los Angeles, and when I was four, my father accepted a professorship at Auburn University, moving our family across the country to Alabama.  Despite my west coast heritage, very little of the big city culture stuck with me. I became a Southern boy, accent and all.

My love of sports comes honestly. From age seven until my mid-twenties, I attended most every football and basketball game in my college hometown.  It’s not overstating things to say that–at least as a kid–I lived sports.

The Sport That Snagged Me

From the moment I picked up a golf club when I was 9, I dreamed of playing professional golf. Not surprisingly then, every day was spent on and around the golf course. It was my home, I just didn’t sleep there. I went on to play golf for Auburn University, earning a degree in journalism along the way.

After a brief stint in professional golf, a job in sales, and a go at public policy, I began working as an executive director for a Christian non-profit ministry.

My life has had many twists and turns, but for every failure and heartache, there was strength to move forward.

Present Tense

Today I live in the suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee, and try to live a transparent life with friends and neighbors–one marked by faith and hope.

I’m husband to one wonderful Jennifer, a dad of five, grandfather to Henry, and “human” to a dachshund named Aubie (in honor of my beloved Auburn Tigers).

In a journey that still astounds me, I now work for ministries here and around the world. Much of my time is spent speaking, writing, and consulting on their behalf.
