Hi I'm Keri

I love to read. I love to garden. I believe true happiness comes from knowing you are a child of God. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home mother to 4 beautiful children. My husband is my best friend. Everything I do is for them. I have a degree in Human Development. I love observing others and learning from them. I receive great joy from the little things; a sunny afternoon, a warm smile, a beautiful flower, a clean kitchen.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Lord knows and loves each and every one of us. He is a part of our daily lives, guiding and directing us. This knowledge brings me great comfort. The gospel allows me to know who I am and where I came from. It gives my life purpose and meaning. I know that obedience to the Lord's commandments is the only way to have true joy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday of my life. I am teaching my children how to pray and turn to the Lord for answers to their questions. I am teaching my children how to read their scriptures and learn from the prophets. In church each Sunday I teach the 4 year-olds about Jesus. They have lessons on faith, obedience, being kind, and loving others.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Modesty and chastity are very much related. Modesty is the first step in being chaste. Just this week we sat our family down all together to talk about the importance of modesty. Our kids started school and are coming home telling us about the different styles that our popular. We took the opportunity to teach our children that our bodies are the greatest gift we have been given. Special gifts from Heavenly Father. We compared our bodies to a beautiful building you may see and how you feel inside when you see it's beauty. A mowed lawn, beautiful flowers, cleanliness. And then how we would feel if it was covered in spraypaint and not taken care of. We need to take care of our bodies. Keeping them clean, well groomed. We told them that the way they dress sends a direct impression of who they are. What message do they want to send? Being an example of modesty in our own dress and having open honest discusions is the best way to teach our children about modesty. Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Mormon women are like any other good woman who is trying her best to raise a family in love and trying to leave the world a little better for future generations. Mormons do believe in equality of men and women. We believe husband and wives are to work side by side, not one dominating over another. But equality does not mean being exactly the same. We believe that God gave men and women distinct and different roles/assignments to fulfill. Men are primarily responsible for the physical welfare of their families while women are to nurture and care for their families. Although the roles are different each one is important and critical.
