Hi I'm Kerrie

I work 24/7 with my four kids. And I wouldn't change a thing. I 'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised by two fabulous people who had me very late in life. My mom was 42 and my dad was 49. My mom loved the gospel and my dad never joined the church. I love BBC videos and reading good fiction. Travelling is one of my passions, and I have a goal to spend time in Australia someday. My kids are 20-9 years old. I went to college and studied Fashion Merchandising at Brigham Young University in Provo, Ut. Right now, my vocation is to drive my kids places and help them become great people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know my Savior lives. When I went to college, I realized I needed to know for myself and couldn't rely on my mom's knowledge anymore. I had always had a real spiritual side, but I felt like I really needed to know. I did what I had always been taught would give me answers: I went to church every week, I read the Bible and Book of Mormon every day, and I prayed every day. After a few weeks, I knew. I had a warm feeling and knew, as surely as I knew that I was standing in the room, that Jesus Christ lives and loves me. Also, I knew that this church is His church. Every event, every hard thing in this life has confirmed that knowledge to me. He has watched over me and blessed me in small and large ways daily. This knowledge means more to me than anything in my life. I know I can conquer all that's difficult with that under my belt. And there have been very hard things, situations in life, with my children, that I wished I had never had to face. But I know things will be ok, because the Lord will help me and I can go on with His love and strength and the power of prayer.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching the women of our congregation once a month. We learn about the most recent teachings of the leaders of our church that come to us during our Semi-Annual Conference. I love this because it is so timely and applies to my life today, my needs as a mother and wife during this crazy time in the world. I also lead my son's cub scout meetings weekly. I don't have brothers or other sons, so this is a learning experience for me. I'm learning along with the boys as they sharpen pocketknives, do community service projects, and have bike rodeos to learn about bike safety. Once a month, I also go into the homes of women in my ward and share a short spiritual message with them. I also check in on them to make sure they are doing alright and what they might need help with.
