Hi I'm Kerri

I was a teen mom. We married young but through the atonement of the Savior we now enjoy the blessings of an eternal family.

About Me

I grew up as a member of the church. At the age of 17, however I made a poor choice that has shaped the rest of my life. I became pregnant. My boyfriend and I married before she was born. The Savior's atonement made it possible for us to repent and 15 months after our civil marriage we became a forever family. We have now been married for 18 years and have 4 amazing children. Life as teen parents we full of many trials and tribulations. We struggled to make ends meet. It was difficult for me to finish high school. Rumors and gossip were sometimes hurtful, but we stayed close leaning on one another and more importantly the Savior. We decided, though we both grew up member, to take the missionary discussions. It was great to hear the basics of the gospel again. I love my Savior very much. He made it possible for me to have a forever family.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a mormon. I grew up surrounded by mormons, but it wasn't until I became a teen parent that my testimony became set in stone.

How I live my faith

I live my faith being an example to my children by attending church each Sunday and going to other church activities. My callings were always in primary. I felt comfortable there. One day the Bishop called me to be in the secratary in Young Womens. For the first time in my life I really had to go home and pray about a calling. I was not sure with my past of being a teen parent that I would be the right person for the calling. As I prayed I was comforted. I knew that despite my past I would be able to help the Young Women in our ward. I don't know if I will ever be able to leave an impact on thier lives, but I know each and everyone of them have impacted mine.
