Hi I'm Randi Maria Rasmussen Klug

I'm a Mormon. I became a member when I was 18 years old am grateful everyday for the gospel and those who brought it to me.

About Me

I am a wife and mother of two beautiful children. I have a husband who works very hard so that I can stay home with them. I love dance and the culinary arts. In my spare time I like to judge and run dance competitions as well as attend college classes. I would love to have my own catering business someday. Cooking is therapy for me and I love how food seems to bring people together. My testimony is constantly growing and I love learning more each day about the gospel and am striving always to be more like my Savior. I am a work in progress, but I know that my Heavenly Father is with me always along my journey and that gives me so much strength.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of eternal families and the prophet Joseph Smith. Before I was baptised the teachings of the temple were the answers to questions I had had all my life. All my fears of being without my loved ones were taken away. The spirit and peace I felt was so comforting. My biggest obstacle was obtaining a tesimony in the prophet Joseph Smith. I had never known of him growing up and it was hard for me to believe his story. When I knelt down to speak with my Heavenly Father my prayer was simple and my question was direct. I was seeking to know if all I had been taught of Joseph Smith was true. Not everyone has the experience of a question being answered immediately or with such power from the spirit, but I did. In that moment the spirit filled me with the truth I was seeking. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. It's hard to describe the feeling. It was like all the light and warmth of the room had centered into my heart and it brought me to tears immediately. I was shocked. Not because I didn't have faith that I would recieve an answer but because of the joy that now filled my soul. I always try to remember this gift I was given so that I might share my testimony with others and hopefully strenthen theirs as well.

How I live my faith

My faith is always growing one building block at a time. I used to feel like I struggled with following the day to day gospel principals when it seemed like other families had it all figured out. I now realize that we all progress at different speeds and that it's not a competition to see who has the most faith and diligence. It's one step at a time. First our family accomplished daily prayer, then daily scripture reading, followed by weekly family home evening. My husband and I are currently working on getting to the temple at least once a month. We don't have it down yet, but I know we'll get there. As we continue to grow in our faith so does our testimonies and love for the gospel. I love my life and that has everything to do with the knowlege I have of our church, the scriptures, our prophet, the temple, and the end goal which is eternal happiness.
