Hi I'm Karen

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member of the Church all of my life. I work in a school library and I tutor students in reading and I love my job. Teaching children has always been one of the things I love to do! I also love to walk. My good friend and I walk 6 days a week and I love waking up and walking and talking about various things. Our favorite subjects seem to be the Temple, our Church service and the scriptures. We talk about how being blessed by the Gospel has helped us to be better parents and grandparents. My friend comes from a family that was very active in the Church but mine was not. I have learned much from her and my perspective has given her some different insights.

Why I am a Mormon

I think that going to church for years by myself , though difficult, caused me to search the scriptures, especially The Book of Mormon, for strength and for peace.

How I live my faith

I have the priviledge of teaching children at church and every week they teach me so much. I LOVE going and serving in the Temple. I KNOW that Temples are truly the house of the Lord. I have felt His presence there every week.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

I love that my husband and I worked side by side in raising our children. As we now watch them raise their own children it brings us great joy to see that they turn to our Father in Heaven and to Christ for peace and support. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

I know that I have a loving Father in Heaven and I have come to this knowledge because of prayer. He has answered my prayers so many times and in very specific ways. I know that He is aware of me personally. He knows my sorrows as well as my joys. Show more Show less
