Hi I'm Karis

I'm a Mormon & love it! It is who I am. My eternal companion & I have been married for 6 yrs. & have 3 cute boys.

About Me

I am the full time mother of 3 young boys. A Preschooler & twin toddlers. I am the wife to a wonderful & loving husband & father. I love taking pictures of my family. I love reading books about becoming a better wife, mother, daughter of God, or person as a whole. I grew up dancing & loving it & still get to from time to time. I enjoy blogging when I get a moment & I enjoy making my house a welcoming home. I enjoy cooking meals for my family & trying new things. I love my crazy, wonderful life & am blessed immensly!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born & raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints & have chosen to continue living the principles of Christs wonderful church because of the joy, happieness, & comfort it brings me, no matter what life may bring. My testimony of the truthfullness of the principles of this church have grown stronger over time as I continue to strive daily to make righteous choices & stay close to the Lord through scripture study & prayer. This gospel is my life. Life can be so hard & uncertain at times & yet, because of my faith, I have hope & a knowledge that I have a loving Heavenly Father who knows me personally, wants me to be happy, & knows whats the very best for me. I can see the Lords hand in every aspect of my life & am grateful for that guidance when I stay close to Him. So because of this, I have direction in my life & a confidence that I will not be lost if I follow the teachings of my Savior, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith the best to my ability everday, while always striving to become more Christlike in every way. Scripture study & prayer are an important part of my daily life. I seek daily for inspiration from my Father in Heaven to help guide me along my way & listen for answers to my earnest prayers. We have a family night every Monday night with our kids to teach them, guide them, & have fun with them. My husband & I attend the temple together as often as possible. My eternal companion is my top priority & therefore make it a habit to nurture our relationship by spending quality time together & reading our scripture together every night as well as saying a couples prayer together. We also have family prayer together every night & read the scriptures aloud with our oldest son while he repeats back what we read since he loves to do that. I attend my church meetings every week on Sunday mornings with my family. While once a month, I go & visit a couple of other woman in the church to bring them a spiritual message & see if they are doing well & if I can help them in any way. My calling in the church right now is working with young girls ages 8-11 yrs. old. Which is called Activity Days, where we meet every other week to learn & develop new talents & skills both spiritual & temporal. I love teaching & serving these girls. They make me smile & laugh & are enjoyable to be around. The gospel principles that I believe in & know to be true, are at the basis of all of the decisions that I make in my life every single day.
