Hi I'm Karen

I am a wife. I am a mother to seven children. I am a grandma to fifteen grandchildren. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I married a year after I graduated from High School. I was fortunate to be able to stay at home while my children were growing up. My greatest joy is my children and my grandchildren. I have twelve grandsons and I'm fortunate to have 3 teen-aged step-grandchildren, two girls and one boy. Some hobbies I like are sewing, quilting, and crochet. I was a school crossing guard for nine years. I am currently a home-maker and enjoy my grandchildren. I have a wonderful husband and have been married for 35 years.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church and have been taught about my Father in Heaven and His son Jesus Christ. I testify that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. I am so thankful to be a member of His church. I know that He lives and that He loves each one of us. I am so thankful for a living prophet and for the guidance that he gives us. I know that Joseph Smith indeed saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ and that he restored the gospel of Jesus Christ in these latter days. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it is another testament of Jesus Christ. I'm thankful for the atonement of Jesus Christ that gives us a chance to repent and to return to our Father in Heaven. I know this to be true without a doubt. The Church and my family are my life, my everything. I'm blessed to be sealed to my family for eternity. I'm so thankful for our temple blessings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping those who are sick or lonely. I live my faith by going to church each week and learning more about my Savior Jesus Christ. I live my faith by being a good friend and treating others with kindness. I live my faith by doing what Jesus would have me do. I live my faith by serving in my ward and in my community. I live my faith by being a good example.
