Hi I'm Kathy

I am a mother. I am a nurse. I wrote a children's book to explain death. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Mom. I have four kids. Soon my youngest will be leaving home to go to college. With no kids at home, my husband and I are planning on getting back into camping. We camped a lot when the kids were little, we thought it would be fun to do it again, this time without kids. Luckily Colorado has a lot of beautiful sunny days to enjoy the mountains. I work as a RN, teaching at CNA nursing schools. My job is challenging and rewarding. My big project this last year was writing and illustrating a children's book for a special friend called, "Max the Happy Caterpillar." It is written to help children understand disabilities and to explain death.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I believe in Christ. I believe that this is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ as was taught by Jesus Christ when He lived on the earth.

How I live my faith

I teach a Sunday School class for adults every other Sunday. Right now we are studying the New Testament. I love to study the New Testament. When I teach, I learn a lot from studying and the from class members. We usually have very interesting discussions. I also live my faith by trying to be more like Christ as I work with people in the community and with my family. I like to help others.

What do Mormons believe happens after we die?

I believe that our spirits leave our bodies. In the case of a young child, they are innocent and pure. They will be able to see their parents and loved ones again. Families can continue beyond the grave. The sealing power to make families eternal is an ordinance that takes place in our most sacred buildings, our temples. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

At the funeral of a dear friend that passed away, the song, "Amazing Grace," was sung. I need my Savior. I am weak and imperfect. I try very hard to follow His teachings, but no matter how hard I try, I goof up. I hope that when I die someone will sing that song at my funeral. "I once was lost but now am found, was blind, but now, I see." Without Christ's atonement I truly would be lost. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

I love this question. YES!!!! I know some people may have told you we are not Christian, but I am. I believe in Christ. I read the New Testament. I love the New Testament. I pray. Actually, I pray a lot because I need my Savior, pretty much constantly. The Book of Mormon is amazing and testifies of Christ. Show more Show less
