Hi I'm Kara

I love reading, scuba diving, playing the piano and spending time with my husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Georgia and by the time I was 22, I had lived in 6 different states Georgia, Connecticut, Texas, Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Utah. I enjoy being outside, reading, and playing the piano. I recently graduated from college with a degree in Human Development and Non-Profit Management. I currently work for a small non-profit organization that does development work in 8 other countries. I am married to my best friend. We love the life that we have created together and can't wait to start our family and continue making memories.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this gospel as both of my parents were members of the church. Growing up, I always believed that this church was true but I never really had my own testimony until I was in my teenage years. It wasn't until I was going around and sharing the gospel with other people that I truly realized that it was true; it wasn't until my beliefs were rejected that I realized how important this church was to me. Since that day, I have had a strong testimony of this gospel and that it helps me to be better and to be the person that I hope to be.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in all of my daily activities. I strive to be an example to everyone that I come in contact with, trying to be a light in people's lives. I want to be the kind of person in whom people can confide and ask questions. Within my church, I am one of the leaders over the group of women. It is my responsibility to plan the activities for the sisters in the church, bringing them together to learn and grow both as a group and individually. I am also on the missionary committee, where we reach out to other members of the congregation, as well as people living in our community in order to fellowship them and help them feel that they are welcomed and loved.
