Hi I'm Karen
I am a mom first, can't get away from that one! Haha! I love my two kids more than anything in the world. I have always been a country girl so now I have a lot of fun sharing that way of life with them. We live in a tiny town, have horses and a ranch, and love to do anything outdoors. My husband Frank and I both have bows and like to hunt and also like to take the kids out in the hills on our four-wheelers a couple times a month. It really doesn't matter to us whether we're on horseback in the middle of the ranch or out in the backyard picking up nuts, we just love our country way of life!
Why I am a Mormon
I was raised in the Mormon church so I don't really have an amazing conversion story to share. I can tell you this though, I am not the type of person to just take someone's word for it. Every decision I make is because I believe it's the right thing and living my life as a member of the church is no different. I have put effort into developing my testimony over the years. I know that the lifestyle I have chosen is true and right. I have a strong testimony of my Savior and the gospel. If I didn't choose to attend church and live my every day life centered around the gospel, I would be lying to myself. I know this gospel has the full truth. I also know that living the way we are asked to in the church does not restrict you, but sets you free. People are always looking for more ways to be happy and free. It's hard to understand unless you've lived it and experienced it but the LDS church provides you with exactly that if you follow the gospel. Who wouldn't follow the gospel knowing that?!
How I live my faith
I live my faith every day by teaching my kids what is right through my example. Being a stay at home mom I know that every move I make is watched and noted by my two kids. It's so important to me that they learn concepts like obedience, charity, and hard work before they go out on their own. It starts here and now, when they're young. I know that my job is crucial to their success and happiness in this world.
