Hi I'm Karen
I'm an educator. I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
I am a Special Education Teacher and life-long learner. I have trained dogs for several years and enjoy teaching old dogs new tricks. I love being outdoors, reading/writing, cooking/baking, the arts, spending time with my husband, and, of course, shoe shopping.
Why I am a Mormon
I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints simply because I know its true. Growing up, I often didn't know which way to turn for my spirituality. To make a very long story short, I prayed to know what I needed to do. My answer was clear as it burned in my heart, "Follow Christ." I know that Christ lives! I know that He died so that I might be forgiven for my lackings. I know that I am a daughter of God and that He loves me, as I have seen it so many times in my life. Because I have read the scriptures, put them to the test, and prayed about it, I know with a surety that this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that it has been restored to us by a Loving Heavenly Father through His prophets. I love this Gospel and its answers to my soul's questions.
How I live my faith
I love being active, so service in the community and church is how I show my faith. As a Christian, I try to be kind and speak gently to people. Every month, I have the opportunity to visit with some other ladies in my congregation as part of the Visiting Teaching program. I enjoy going and chatting with the women and sharing a spiritual message with them.
