Hi I'm Karen

I love science, I love being a stay at home mom, and I love being a Mormon.

About Me

 I grew up in Utah, and graduated from college in biology teaching. I taught 8th grade science for one year before becoming a stay at home mom. I now live in upstate New York, trying to love and live life to the fullest!

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon because, though I sometimes try to find fulfillment in other ways, nothing brings me as much peace and whole-ness as does following the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know it works, because I've tried it.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as secretary for the group of young women ages 12-18 that live in my ward boundaries. It's so fun to see them interact with each other, and it strengthens my faith to see how they are so strong in the midst of all the influences around us and in all they see, hear, and go through at school. They are able to keep high standards even when no one else is, and they not only keep them, they believe in them and let their friends know about them. It truly is the best way to live, to be honest with yourself and live what you know to be right! It's a great blessing to serve with them.
