Hi I'm Karen

I am a stay-at-home wife and mother of five kids and I am a mormon

About Me

I grew up in the lds church. I am a stay-at-home wife and mother. I am grateful for the opportunity that I have to be at home. Eventhough it gets crazy sometimes I know that my kids and husband benefit with me staying home. I have seen it bless their lives for good. I also served a mission for the church. I love Jesus Christ so much that I wanted to share with other people what great things he has done for me. I wanted to share my testimony of the love I had for the people and of Jesus Christ and His plan for us. I have five beautiful children, four girls and one boy. I play the piano and the harp. I love to scrapbook and make things that are cute for my house. I love to hear true stories about other peoples lives and I like to watch movies that are based on true events. I am shy but I like to have fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I actually grew up in the church. My parents were converts. The reason that I have stayed a mormon is because I know that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me and know me personally. They have a plan for me. The Plan of Salvation is a really neat plan because it tells me where I was before I was born, what my purpose is in this life and where I am going in the next life. When I have a trial I can always think back and remember why I am on this earth. I know that I can always pray to my Heavenly Father and he will answer my prayers. I know that this church is true. I am so grateful for my parents joining the church because they gave me the greatest gift, that of the Gospel. I know that Joseph Smith saw The Father and his Son, Jesus Christ in the Sacred Grove. I love reaading the scriptures eventhough sometimes I have a hard time understanding them I say a prayer that I will have the spirit to be with me and help me to understand. I know that our prophet Thomas S. Monson is a true and living prophet that leads and guides this church righteously. I am very grateful for temples and for the opportunity that families can be together forever. Being a member of this church has been a great blessing even an eternal blessing. I just love it!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by visiting other ladies in my ward. I make sure that they are O.K. If they need help I try to help them with what ever they need. I live my faith by being obedient to the Ten Commandments and keeping my body clean and healthy.
