Hi I'm Karen
We have six children and 27 grandchildren. I like to do genealogical research, read, snow ski, and go to our water ski family reunions and watch grandchildren. We enjoy meeting people throughout the world while doing clean water projects. We've also previously served a full time humanitarian mission in Kenya, worked on tsunami recovery in Indonesia, helped build homes in Peru after an earthquake, and done water projects in Liberia and Sierra Leone, and helped others in Nepal and Kenya with our church's water projects.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born in the Mormon church, but all members must decide for themselves at some time in their life if they believe what they've been taught. From trying to live the commandments I have over time realized the happiness it has brought me and my family, and I have also experienced that sweet spiritual feeling as I received answers to my prayers about the truthfulness of this Gospel. Now I can say for myself that I do know it is true.
How I live my faith
Over the years I have taught children, cub scouts, youth and women and served as leaders at times. I also visit teach women and have done this as long as I can remember. Currently I also assist others interested in genealogical work. Obviously, I also with my husband travel several times a year doing humanitarian projects.
