Hi I'm Karan

I'm a Musical, Mormon, Military Mom and Wife.

About Me

I love music, singing, scrapbooking, photography, movies, reading, drama and I especially love being a Mom! I also like to cook, and I love working with the primary children and Young Women at church. My husband is in the military so we have moved all over including Texas, North Carolina, Idaho, North Dakota and England! I have met many wonderful friends and seen so many beautiful places!

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to have been born into a family who were already members of the church. I am grateful for this because I was raised with good moral values and ideas, but also learned to respect others ideas that are different from mine. I did however still have to gain my own testimony and decide if it was what I wanted for myself. That happened when I was 16 and read the Book of Mormon for the first time while in Seminary. I was at an age where I knew I needed to find out for myself, so I read and prayed and studied. When I finished, I followed the challenge in Moroni 10, so I knelt down and prayed to know it was true. As I did, tears came to my eyes and I was filled with the warmth of the Holy spirit, as it testified truth to me. Ever since then, through all my trials, I have relied on my faith alone, and know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and listens to my prayers. I am grateful for the sacrifice of my Savior Jesus Christ, and that he has made forgiveness possible, and I love him with all my heart!

How I live my faith

I am a counselor in Primary at church, teaching the children ages 3-11. It is a joy and a challenge, but I love to see them grow as they learn about Jesus. I am also a visiting teacher and try to help other sisters in my ward by visiting them, and helping them with whatever they need. I am also a member of the choir at church which I enjoy.

What is faith?

Faith is knowing in your heart and spirit that no matter what people say, what you believe is the absolute truth. You have to be able to listen to other views, but stand firm in your beliefs, even without being able to prove them to someone else. It is extremely personal, and you don't have to prove it to anyone else but yourself, and God. Each person must find faith for themselves.Faith is believing without seeing- it is knowing that God has spoken to you in your heart and you can never deny what you have felt. Show more Show less
