Hi I'm Kimberly

I am a divorced mother. I am a full-time student. I work two jobs. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have played the piano for 14 years and the organ for 7 years. I love to sing alto, and I work PT as a choir accompanist. I offer piano lessons and love teaching my students. I will graduate with a Bachelor's in English in August and then will put in paperwork to go for my Master's in Communication. I want to teach Public Speaking at the high school or community college level. I also sew, crochet, cook, organize, write novels and poetry, and keep a journal. I also love to play volleyball and badminton, go swimming, horseback riding, camping, rollerblading, bicycling, and just plain driving. I love to watch movies and listen to music all the time. My son is very smart! He has a huge vocabulary and stuns us all the time with new words, phrases, and full sentences. He has so much love and energy that he is the adrenaline that keeps me going everyday without giving up on life, especially after an awful marriage and painful divorce.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but I did not start to convert until after my Temple marriage, after I decided to divorce my abusive husband, after I already had a child that, as a result of my decision to divorce, would grow up without the influence of a permanent father figure. In December 2008, I decided to divorce my husband who was involved in child pornography, alcoholism, abuse, and ultimately adultery. I had, at this moment, to decide what to do: I could turn from God, blame Him for my horrible marriage, question why He would allow me to marry such a monster, and so on. Or, I could choose to face my struggles, have faith that I would accept whatever lesson I was to learn from this divorce, which is obviously a lesson I could only learn from getting a divorce, love God, turn to Him and my family, and be an example to my child of overcoming trials instead of vice versa. I chose to follow God, and I have not regretted and will never regret this decision. I have been blessed countless times, the windows of Heaven opening up to me, and though I have still experienced numerous trials in the years since then, I have developed a much stronger relationship with God and a stronger testimony that I want to share with others.

How I live my faith

My callings in the Church are ward chorister, assistant choir director, and pianist for the primary children. I have also been the ward organist and music specialist. Each calling given to me, I accept, and because I accept these callings from the Lord, I am blessed. I love my callings as each one humbles me and teaches me new things. I know that I will always accept any calling from the Lord, and I hope that I can be a good example and an instrument in His hands in brings forth and fulfilling His purposes here on earth.
