Hi I'm Kay Dickeson

I'm a Mormon. I am a Colorado native who lives in the mountains of Colorado.

About Me

I am a Mormon. I am just like many of you but I choose to live by the standards of The Church Of Jesus Christ. My life is by no means perfect, but there is great joy in it most of the time. I have a sense of humor that not everyone appreciates. I have a son, a daughter. They both have wonderful spouses and 4 children each. Being a grandmother is so much fun. I do not spoil my grandchildren; I love them. I went to College in Gunnison, Colorado getting a degree in Accounting. Right now I am looking forward to retirement in a few years. I show and breed Tibetan Spaniels. I have been doing this for about 35 years. I have made many new friends all over the world because of this. Between the Church and the dogs, I have found confidence that I didn't have in my youth.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of the Book Of Mormon and that it is true and the word of the Lord. Every time I read the Book Of Mormon it is again confirmed through the Holy Spirit. My husband and I joined as a young family. We were sealed together for time and all eternity a little over a year later. We are an eternal family that has now extended to our grandchildren. There are generations to look forward to within the Gospel. When I have doubts I return the the Book Of Mormon to renew my determination to live to enjoy the promises that were made at the time of baptism and in the Temple.

How I live my faith

I understand that though this is a world wide Church, it is one made up of individuals. This is a Church that needs each member within each ward/branch to do the work required. I am the Chorister for Sacrament meeting. I am also a teacher in Relief Society. I probably learn more each time I prepare a lesson, than those who listen to me. I am responsible first for myself in living the Gospel. No one else can make good or bad decisions for me. I am also responsible for setting a good example for my family and those around me. I may not do it 100% but I keep trying.
