Hi I'm Kaye

I'm going on a mission to Ghana in July 2011 for 3 years with my husband. I like mango, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 53-year-old grandma of 4.5, mother of 4, and wife of one. These people are the joys of my life. With them, I hike, cook, garden, eat, bike, play and listen to music, learn, worship, talk, and have fun. I love trees . . . in every season. I love holding newborns and talking to 3-year-olds. I love smelling baking bread and sleeping in a comfortable bed. I love America and know it's a chosen land, but I'm still moving to Ghana. I don't like dirty counter tops or grungy grout. I have a wonderful life. 

Why I am a Mormon

My great grandparents were taught the gospel of Jesus Christ and baptized in the 1800s. My ancestors remained faithful to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I was baptized at age 8. My testimony came after years of study, prayer, and living according to the commandments. I'm a Mormon now because the Spirit of God has witnessed to me in an unmistakeable way that Jesus is the Christ and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. If that book is true, then it's all true. I'm a truth seeker . . . so I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

 On Sundays I don't shop, attend sporting events, or go to movies ... I go to church and spend time with my family and friends. I study and heed the words of prophets and apostles ... ancient and modern. I pray. I serve. I smile.

What is faith?

Faith moves one to action otherwise, it is only belief. The Book of Mormon says that the witness doesn't come until after the trial of our faith, so we must have faith sufficient to move us to action. After stepping into the darkness, the witness comes, and our faith grows. It's a wonderful circle of growth towards light and truth.    Show more Show less
