Hi I'm Molly A. Kerr

I'm a Mormon, an aerospace engineer, a wife, a mom, and a writer.

About Me

Let me start with the labels: Working Mom, Married, Mother of Two by Adoption, Aerospace Engineer, Return Missionary from the Massachusetts Boston Mission, used to drive a Honda CRV (350K+ miles) but now drives an electric vehicle, Southern Californian transplanted from Northern California, Sunday School Teacher, graduate of Stanford Junior University and Missouri University of Science & Technology More specifically: Someone who loves her kids & her husband & her career, is always striving to do better, laughs as often as possible, struggles with the challenges she faces while trying to appreciate the challenges she doesn't have to face, and has a house that she never thinks is clean enough I now write for LDS blogs, sometimes us "busy people" need to try harder to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ: https://ldsblogs.com/category/molly-a-kerr-all-the-pieces-of-pi

Why I am a Mormon

Because God answered the prayer of a twelve-year-old when she asked if she should be baptized in the LDS Church with an affirmative, "Yes." Because He helped her to finish reading the Book of Mormon, and complete two Camp Fire patches on religion, before her mother would agree to it. Because later that teenager saw the affect the Church had on the life of her parents when they both re-activated and were sealed in the temple, when God took two great people and made them better. Because that girl became a woman who sits in front of her computer and the tears start flowing down her cheeks as she begins to think of how very precious is her testimony of the Gospel, how merciful God has been to her, and how grateful she is to her dear Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Because every trial she has faced with her husband and children -- through years of adoption and infertility struggles, financial struggles, and stupid mistakes -- has ultimately strengthened her family as they relied on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Every day I try to be a better person. I try to be more level-headed, more kind, more patient, more generous, and more forgiving. I am none of these things naturally. These things don't come easy to me. But that's what the Gospel of Jesus Christ is, the opportunity to make good women, GREAT!
