Hi I'm Mynnette K.
I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!
I live and go to in South Central Kansas. I enjoy my schooling--I am currently finishing a degree so that I can work with severely mentally disabled children at the elementary school level. I love these kids and they make my life meaningful. I've been privileged to work with children who have special needs for about 4 years in different capacities and it has been an immense blessing to my life. My husband and I have been married since 2004. We are unable to have children of our own, but we did have the privilege of being foster parents for a year and taking care of 12 beautiful children. Our struggle with infertility has been both a trial and a blessing that has brought us closer to each other and to the Lord. I am the oldest of nine children. I live near most of my family with the exception of a sister who lives in Utah with her husband and daughter. I also live near some of my husband's family. It's wonderful because we get to have fun with them all the time! I am also an avid crafter. I love to make my own cards and crafts to give to others. I have been blessed to design cards for two stamp companies and to design my own stamp sentiments for one of these companies as well! Creating things is a great way to relieve stress and to share love with others around me! I blog about things that are important to me and this is my favorite way to journal. I've met some amazing people from all over the world through my blogging and I feel so blessed to know them all!
I was blessed to be born into a family that was already active in this church. My parents encouraged all of us at a young age to study the gospel and to find out for ourselves whether or not it was true. I did this. Through personal scripture study and prayer, I have come to know that this church is true. I know that it is true because of the way following it's precepts have blessed my life and made me feel. I know that my Savior is real and that He died for me so that I can once again live with my Heavenly Father. I know that my life is blessed daily because of the things I was taught as a child and continued to study as a youth and adult. This is a gospel of Hope and Peace! I have found both by living the principles of the restored gospel, and I know that it is possible for every single person on this earth to find the same if they truly seek it. In a changing world, our Savior is constant and so is His church.
I am living my faith by sharing it and by helping others around me! I have been called to be the compassionate service coordinator in our congregation. This means that when a temporal need arises (meals, taking care of someone after surgery, etc.) I am the one who will coordinate these efforts. I have found this calling incredibly rewarding. Helping those around me with things they cannot provide for themselves has taught me how blessed I am and helps me to feel God's love for myself and for all of His children. I also serve as a visiting teacher. A visiting teacher is a woman age 18 or over who is assigned to visit certain members of your ward (or congregation) monthly. I have been blessed with a wonderful companion that accompanies me on these visits. Through visiting teaching, I know that the Lord helps me to bless the lives of those I serve. I have gained many lasting friendships while participating in the blessings of this divinely inspired program.
