Hi I'm Kimberlie

I'm a Dentists Wife, I'm a Mother, I love Daisies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah, coming from an amazing family of 10 children. Life was pretty normal, though quite exciting with many things going on in our home on a daily basis. Through my mothers example and love she provided all of us, I learned at an early age that becoming a mother myself would bring tremendous blessings! Well, here I sit, 25 years of age, with 2 beautiful children who keep me busy day in and day out! My husband and I moved out to Ohio a month after we were married so he could begin his dental education at The Ohio State University (Go Buckeyes!) Soon after, we started our family! My husband and I moved away from Ohio 1 year ago to start his career as a dentist here in Colorado. Being blessed to stay at home with my 2 children has taught me tremendous patience and has helped me understand the true sacrifices that my parents made - having 10 children and attending to each of their needs! Aside from being a full time mother, I love to run. ... let me rephrase that ... I run. I can't say that I love to run, however I love the way I feel when I have accomplished something that seems, at times, more mental than physical - and always seems bigger than myself! I also love to study nutrition. I wish I read novels or non-fictional tales and actually enjoyed them, however when I find myself at the library there is no area which interests me more than the "Nutrition" section. I love implementing my learned knowledge into my home, and I love raising a healthy family!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon for many reasons, which all lead me to the same testimony. I'm a Mormon because I love and know the teaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to be true. Throughout my life I have been taught principles and have fulfilled ordinances which have been accompanied with the feeling of the Holy Ghost, continually witnessing and testifying to me of the truthfulness of the Gospel. Being raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I often felt the expectation to do things in a specific manner. Many times as a youth I did not understand why specific "standards" were given to members of the church. However, as I followed those standards, my testimony of them and gratitude for them became intensely strong. I am tremendously grateful for the guidelines of modesty, dating, tithes and offerings, Sabbath Day observance, and all other standards that have helped me to always have a clear mind and open heart throughout my life. As I have lived those standards, as closely as I can, I have felt a peace in my life. As a youth I participated in Seminary, which is a time set aside daily to learn (in a class-like setting) about the Gospel and the Scriptures (Bible, Book of Mormon, and Doctrine and Covenants). This experience, coupled with the teaching of the Gospel in our home, grew as a basis of my Testimony. When I graduated High School I had the opportunity to go on a 3 week church history tour with 300 youth my age. I feel it was at this time that my testimony of the Gospel became unshakable. I came to an strong understanding and gratitude of my Father in Heaven, and my Savior Jesus Christ. I know the Gospel to be true. I know that we have a loving Heavenly Father, who sent his Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to come to earth. Through the Atonement of Christ, we have been given the opportunity to repent of our sins, and to return to live with them, and our families again. I love my Savior, and I am grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

In my home I strive to live my faith on a daily basis through personal and family scripture study and prayer. We are currently teaching our 2 year old how to pray. I think it would be much easier if we didn't have a 3 year old who, at almost every meal, insists on being the one to help him! Nonetheless, it is a work in progress and it is so fun to see the Gospel in action in our home! Throughout our days we are teaching our daughter and son about why we do things the way we do. Why we pray. Why we listen to wholesome music. Why we serve each other and why we are nice to our friends and family. I am a visiting teacher, which means that I visit with several women in our church on a monthly basis to see what their needs are, to see how I can best serve them, and to talk with them about teachings of the gospel. I love the Women's organization of the church and I am so grateful to be a part of it. In the Church I currently work with the young women in our ward. We have amazing youth and it has been such an honor to learn from each of them! On Sunday's I am able to spend about an hour with these girls, as we all are taught about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. One of my responsibilities with the young women is to help organize and carry out weekly activities. Every Tuesday evening the youth meet together and we do activities based around increasing the youths faith in Jesus Christ and desire to serve. I love spending this time with these girls, and it is so fun to see their interactions and their kindness. Our youth have great faith, and it serves as a tremendous example to me.
