Hi I'm Kimberly

I'm a grandmother. I research the developing brain. I have multiple sclerosis. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the divorced mother of two grown sons and the grandmother of two wonderful grandchildren. I am very close to finishing my Ph.D. in Molecular Neurobiology, and I help teach freshman biology courses. Three years ago I was diagnosed with chronic progressive multiple sclerosis. I converted to the Church when I was 12 but waited for my parents' permission to be baptized at age 16.

Why I am a Mormon

I converted to the Mormon Church for two reasons primarily: I love their strong sense of family, and also I believe strongly that God does not set geographical or temporal boundaries for speaking to His children. The Book of Mormon shows us that He did not forget His children that lived in the Western hemisphere; and today He speaks to us through living prophets and personal revelation (prayer). God is still there for us, ready to guide us, if we will only listen.

How I live my faith

I am a visiting teaching district leader, which means I make up the monthly reports on the women in our ward and the sisters they have visited and any special needs they may have. Feeding the missionaries is also a favorite way to serve and live my faith!

What is the Law of Chastity?

The Law of Chastity is a set of guidelines that we use to treat our bodies appropriately, remembering that our body is a gift - a sacred temple. The Law of Chastity teaches us ways to keep our 'temple' pure. Sex is a beautiful, sacred act - when it is performed within the appropriate boundaries of a loving marriage. The Law of Chastity teaches us how to treat ourselves and others with the respect for which we are worthy. Show more Show less
