Hi I'm Kimberly

I was born and raised in Idaho. I love to draw, act and be creative and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Overview... I draw, act, love movies, books, a college student, pursuing a Graphic Arts degree, works as a filing clerk in a doctors office, likes to stay at home but also hang out with friends, loves to travel and loves being with family. ~  I am one of those crazy people who loves to be a big dork and just laugh yet, at the same time I know when to be serious and get my work done. I strive to be the best I can although I know I make many faults and stumble a lot. However, I realize that is why we have good friends who help lift us up and make us the best we can be. ~ Life has many stumbling stones but I am the type of person who looks at every trial as a moment to grow and I try to take the good and bad all in stride. That does not mean I do not have my weak moments, but I try to smile when I want to cry and either service for others or singing an uplifting song does the trick for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church and it seemed normal to get baptized at 8. As I grew up I watched other kids like myself fall away from and rebel against the church. Although I did not have a testimony of my own, the church just seemed right and I could not see the enticement of wanting to go against church teachings and do stuff that would harm me. Soon enough I reached a point in my life where I began to question the Church. As I looked at the story of Joseph Smith I realized that I needed to do what he did. So I knelt down one night and prayed for hours to God. I did not have an awe inspiring experience or a vision. However, when I woke up the next morning I felt calm. I felt that if I just continued to follow the church that my life would be okay. My life did not take a sudden turn for the better. It actually stayed the same for quite a while. But I was happier. I knew I was doing the right thing and everything just seemed easier. ~ The other biggest influence that has kept me a Mormon is the priesthood. I have felt the power of the priesthood to many times in my life to ever deny its reality. I know that it is through the priesthood that God works his power here on earth and it is through the priesthood that He runs his church and gives us modern day revelations for our benefit.

How I live my faith

I think that the best way to live my faith is to be kind to everyone. We are taught that we ought to try to be like Jesus by serving and loving one another. It is not always easy but I try to show kindness and respect to others and to help out where ever I can. ~ I am currently the church pianist and I love every minute of it. I use to be the church organist and then I led the music but now I play the piano. The Hymns (church songs) are considered a prayer and I love to think that every where I go I can be praying to God when I hum or sing the hymns.
