Hi I'm Kim

I grew up in Arizona, I've lived on four continents, and I love food. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a single woman in my 30s still hoping to run into the guy of my dreams. I work as an English as a Second Language instructor for adult students from all over the world. I love to cook like a wannabe Iron Chef, swim, read, do Pilates, learn languages, and travel all over the world. I'd like to write a book one day about traveling and eating. :)

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were already LDS, so I was born into the Lord's church. BUT... It was not without my mother's early conviction that this was truly the true church of Christ that I am a member today. See, my mom's parents didn't really go to church, but they felt like raising their children in the Church was the right thing to do. So, early on, my mom attended church and then made the decision to keep on going because of the good feelings she had when she went to church. My dad, on the other hand, was raised by Baptist parents. In high school, a lot of his friends were LDS, so he went to church activities with them a lot. Eventually, because he was already practically Mormon, living the standards and attending church, he made the decision to be baptized. As a daughter of converted parents, it was a matter of time before I, too, would in my own way become converted. This was not through a single experience, but through many throughout my life. It's been, and continues to be, through attending church, being taught by my parents, living the gospel of Jesus Christ as outlined in the Scriptures and through prophets of God, and listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit that I am continually converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as president of the children's organization in my ward (congregational unit). Basically, I'm in charge of managing the Sunday classes and meetings for the kids. I am also a visiting teacher, which means I am assigned to visit a few women in my ward at least once a month to talk about spiritual needs. It's a really great way to make new friends with people I probably wouldn't meet otherwise!
