Hi I'm Karen.

I'm a wife and mother. I'm an early childhood educator. I'm the creator of a collaborative food blog. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and taught Kindergarten before becoming a mother. My husband and baby are my joy. I love spending each day with my daughter, watching her grow and learn! I love to cook and try new recipes. I especially love finding delicious recipes that are healthy and sharing meatless recipes on a collaborative blog I created. I also love to organize. I love feeling the peace of knowing where things are and that there is a place for everything.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon. My parents never forced me to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but I wanted to be a member. Once I got to college and was on my own I really solidified my testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus is our Savior. He Atoned for our sins so that we might repent and return to live with him and Heavenly Father again. I know that Joseph Smith restored the Gospel to the earth and that Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet today. I know that because of that restoration the sealing power to bind families for all eternity is again upon the earth.

How I live my faith

Everyday I try to remember the covenants I made with my Father in Heaven by praying, studying my scriptures, and seeking out the positive and uplifting things in this world. In my ward I serve as a primary teacher. I have been assigned to teach the 7-8 year old children. I help them prepare to be baptized at the age of 8. I am also a visiting teacher. That means that I have been assigned four of the women in my ward to contact at least once a month. I share a Gospel related message with them and seek out opportunities to help and serve them.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that the family is the most sacred and important unit in society. It is literally the building block of society. We believe that fathers and mothers have a sacred obligation to rear their children in righteousness. We believe that our families can be united eternally in holy temples, extending our relationships beyond the grave. Show more Show less
