Hi I'm Kimberly

I'm a wife, a mom, a daughter a sister. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, a mom, a daughter, a sister and a friend. I graduated from college with a degree in Clinical Laboratory Science. I then went to work, to put my husband through school, as a Medical Technologist. After the birth of our youngest daughter we decided it was time for me to stay home. I spend my days chasing, driving, cleaning, cooking for my family of five. When I can I love to read, to sew, to take pictures, to blog and to create. The first surprise of our lives came with the birth of our son. It was then we learned he has Down syndrome. Two years later we had a daughter, with the same number of chromosomes as we have. Another daughter came two years later with the same surprise her brother brought. Having two children with special needs creates challenges unklike anything I ever thought I could face, but also many opportunities for growth. Most especially, though, it has brought a lot of laughter. I love my children more than I can say and cannot imagine them, any one of them, different from how they are.

Why I am a Mormon

On both sides I have a strong faithful heritage of The Church. My parents taught me the gospel and then provided means for me to gain my own testimony. I came to have a deep love of the scriptures which has brought me great amount of comfort, direction and understanding. Through trails and "good times" I have learned that I have a loving Heavenly Father who knows me and knows my situation. I have come to know that everything happens for a reason. Even if I am not learn that reason until a much later time. Most of all I have learned that my Savior, Jesus Christ, not only atoned for my sins but for all my pains. He is love. He is the great example. He is the reason I am living.

How I live my faith

Having three small children has been a challenge to provide structured scripture study. Something that came so easy when I was in college, only taking care of myself. We try to take as many opportunities to show our children our love for the Savior. We take them to church every week. I am grateful for our children's program that allows other to teach the same lessons we try to live at home. Belonging to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is not a Sunday only experience. It is a way of life. It is knowing my what my Savior has done for me personally. It is learning to love like He does. It provides peace and comfort even on the hardest of days. I live my faith by knowing it and loving it.
