Hi I'm Kitty

I'm a new grandmother, a singer, an "Air Force brat", and have worked at a Catholic college for over 20 years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been a choral singer since I was 15-- which, trust me, is a VERY long time ago. Was briefly a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir at the age of 18. Just had the terrific experience of singing my granddaughter to sleep for the first time. She likes the Beach Boys-- "Surfer Girl" is her favorite. Been reading science fiction even longer than I've been singing. At one time I had aspirations to write SF but that's pretty much gone by the wayside. I enjoy baking and puttering in the garden.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a freshman in high school I had Mormon friends. I had been raised in the Disciples of Christ (First Christian) church and appreciated the foundation I was given but there just seemed to be something missing. I started going to the LDS church with my friends and two years later was given permission by my parents to be baptized. They thought it was a fad and I would "get over it." I'm still here over 40 years later. I could not have made it through some very dark times in my life without the peace and strength I find in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I select the hymns and lead the congregational singing in our Sunday worship services. I also help with humanitarian projects for our women's fellowship. I sponsor a child in Guatemala through an international Christian agency. But really, I try to live my faith by being an example of honesty, modesty and charity. One thing I am really working on is not to speak evil of anyone. (I call it the Thumper Doctrine, after the bunny in "Bambi"-- "If you can't say somethin' nice don't say nothin' at all.") It's not easy and I slip as much as the next person, but I just try to make amends and do better next time.
