Hi I'm Kim

I live in California and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a married mother of three. I live in the SF bay area in California. My kids are busy with sports and music - so I'm busy driving them around! I love my husband and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my church. I know we have a loving Heavenly Father that wants us to be happy by helping others and seeking out the good in this world. I grew up in the church, but have not always attended. I've decided to be an active member of His church to serve Him and be the best person I can be while I'm here on earth. I love His gospel. I love that we serve with no expectation of payment, just as Christ served with no expectation in return. I know this is the true church of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Being a mormon is different because people don't think the little things we do (or don't do) are a big deal. For example: we only do church and family activities on Sundays, we don't go to sporting events, restaurants, or shops on Sundays. I love my Sundays with my family and no stress from the world. Also, we don't drink coffee, tea, or alcohol and we don't smoke. I love that I don't have to "battle" with being addicted to anything. I feel that it is important to fill your time with activities that are wholesome and fun. It can be so easy to fill your time with useless activity that can damage your spirituality. We are followers of Jesus Christ. We serve others and invite everyone to learn of Him and find their own happiness.

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

The purpose of Church welfare is to help families find ways to help themselves and better themselves so they can provide for their families in the future. It is not meant to be long term. It is more of a goal-setting system to help people help themselves. Show more Show less
