Hi I'm Kerry

I love the Lord and my family. I'm a full-time Mum and wife, and I love it! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My greatest joy in this life is my family. I have a great balance of family, friends and faith that helps me in my day to day existence. I love to read, trace my family history, scrapbook and cook. I have enjoyed employment in many fields but I am most satisfied when I'm taking care of those I love. So, to this end, I am now a full-time homemaker, and I love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I wasn't raised with religion and yet, I knew the gospel was for me when I learned about it. As a young adult who had lived outside the church, I am so grateful to have the Lord's blessings as I continue in this life. Having found my eternal companion, I have embraced the priority of "Family First". As a mother of four premature babies, I have witnessed His grace and mercy in my life, and theirs, continually. No matter what we want in life, I have enjoyed the way the Lord always meets our needs. His all-encompassing love is unconditional. As a parent I have learned how to love the child, not necessarily the behaviour. Our Heavenly Father looks on us in this same light, and He never gives up on us. This has helped me to know who I am in God's eyes, and to know that His love for me is great. As a daughter of God, I have a very special role to play on this earth at this time. I will be all He wants me to be by finding JOY in the journey. That is my promise to Him.

How I live my faith

I love to have opportunities to help strengthen others. I feel that we each have a responsibility to share all the talents and gifts that we have been given. As such, I love teaching moments. Within the home, in church classes with the young and the young at heart, there are always things to teach and as I teach, I learn. I live my religion by doing those things I would like my children to do, as they see my example. I have helped in the school communities of my children; have held fund-raisers for charities; and have always been a listening ear or shoulder to either cry or lean on. I love helping others as I have been helped throughout my life, both as a new wife and as a young mum. Now that I'm a little older and wiser, I enjoy doing for others as I have had done unto me.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Family comes first. No matter what else is going on outside your home, those that we love within, are our first priority. All the money, fame and success in the world cannot replace the broken hearts of our loved ones. I am grateful to have the example of a loving and kind Heavenly Father whose goal is to seal families together forever. And after investing so much love into my family, I desire to have them with me always. Show more Show less

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

The best thing about being modest and chaste is knowing that you are loved for who you are - not the sum of your body parts. I continue to teach my children modesty by living as I want them to live. I do not compromise the standards and encourage them to do the same. How we carry ourselves and the way we speak should be a reflection of our self-worth. As a child of God, I delight in the love He has for me, no matter what. I have no desire to shame God, so therefore I try not to bring shame upon myself. Show more Show less
