Hi I'm Kim

I live in North Florida. I'm a wife and mother. I love chocolate and driving fast. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am first & foremost a Mother of three beautiful children & have been blessed with three more by sharing with my husband his children. Family is very important to me. I grew up in a family of six kids one brother & four sisters. My Dad was raised on a farm, so most of my life I've lived in the country. My Mom made being a Mother look so easy & so much fun! I never had big aspirations for a huge career as I only wanted to be a Mom. As it turns out, I also have a thriving career in an assc. management co. & absolutely LOVE my job as a professional communications director & meeting planner. I have the best Boss in the entire world & love the people I work with. My hobbies would include anything & everything to do with my family like family time, camping, movie night, cooking, journaling & dancing. Being a Florida girl I love the beach! I adore my grand-puppy Dixie, the sweetest golden lab anyone could be blessed with! I have a huge sweet tooth & chocolate is my favorite food of all time. I like to drive fast, my favorite color at the moment is green,FSU is my favorite football team, I go out of my way & back again for my friends, I make the best homemade chocolate covered cherries EVER, I just turned 42 and I still haven't decided what I want to be when I grow up. I love life & know that I am very, very blessed! This all may sound too picture perfect but life, and some of the choices I've made, have tossed me to and fro but I'm very resilient and my faith keeps me grounded.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents were Mormon so I grew up Mormon but that does not mean I didn't have to be "converted" to Mormonism. What I mean by that is I still had to learn the truth on my own. There comes a time in everyones life that they have to know for themselves and they can't stand on the shoulders of their loved ones. My conversion was a process as I learned different truths at different times of my life. I learned at a very early age to pray but at some point the prayers became my own and not what my parents taught me. That is when I truly became spiritually born. I was baptised at the age of eight and I remember the feeling I had when I was raised up from the baptismal waters and then was confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I had a burning in my chest and a warm feeling all over that my Heavenly Father was pleased with me. I remember how happy I was and recognized the meaning of being clean from the inside out. I remember the feelings I would have as I read my scriptures, attended my church meetings, participated in our regular Family Home Evenings a special night that we set aside to spend time with my family each week. My testimony was cemented when I attended my first youth Temple Trip to the Washington DC temple. On this trip we also visited historical places such as the Sacred Grove where Joseph Smith received his vision and saw God the Father and Jesus Christ and witnessed the Hill Cumorah Pageant. That was 30 years ago, and my testimony of who I am, where I came from and where I know I'm going after this life is even stronger because I have lived it.  

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the choices I make every day. I try to keep an eternal perspective so that my decisions will lead me to my eternal goal in being worthy to live with my Heavenly parents and my family. I attend church, serve where needed, read my scriptures, follow the teachings of the prophets and apostles and live what I believe. Because I live what I believe my co-workers and friends, who aren't Mormon, know that I don't drink, do drugs or smoke, that I respect and love myself by the way I dress and that I love and respect the names of Deity. They know what I believe and that I am firm in my faith and they respect me for it.
