Hi I'm Kimberly.
I'm the mother of five children and my husband is my best friend. We have a huge white dog--something I never imagined! We have a lot of fun as a family playing games and enjoying our beautiful city. I love to cook and I love to read. I love art and traveling and look forward to doing more of both when my kiddos are a bit older.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I have felt the Holy Ghost confirm that the Church is true. I have read and prayed about the Book of Mormon and have felt peace and warmth. I have lived by the Church's teachings and they have made me a better mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend and neighbor--a better disciple of Christ. I know that we need a living prophet in this confusing world. I am grateful for the clarity that the prophet brings to confusing issues. I know my Savior lives and I am grateful for His Gospel.
Can you think of a specific challenge in your family that Gospel Principles helped overcome?
I grew up with brothers and a sister who were born with an incurable genetic disease. One brother died at age 19 and my sister had a double living lobar lung transplant when she was 16. Two members of our church each gave her a lobe of their lungs when family members were disqualified. It was an unbelievably unselfish gift to our entire family! My other brother is currently serving a mission at the Referral Center of the Church because his health requires more maintenance than a traditional mission allows. If you chat with the missionaries on this site or ask a question, it may be him - he is awesome! The gospel has given us hope and peace to endure. We know that we were with God before we came to this earth and that through Jesus Christ we will return to Him and be as a family after we all leave this earth. Life is hard, but we know it is not the end.
How I live my faith
I help the 10 and 11 year old girls in our congregation by hosting an "Activity Day" twice a month in my home where we learn different skills, do service projects or crafts, learn songs and talk about Christ. I love it! In the past I have helped organize the children's classes at church, held monthly nights out for the women and been the children's music leader. I love being involved! Personally, I try to be kind and patient and teach my children to follow Christ. I pray and read my scriptures and try to be kind and loving to everyone I meet and be worthy of the inspiration of the Holy Ghost.
