Hi I'm Kim

I am a Mom of three little knights and one princess, a blessed wife, a musician, a runner and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am thirty something, but with four kids sometimes I feel like fifty something. I have been married to my best friend for near 11 years and still learn new things about us each day. My four angels ranging from 10-3, are all so full of life, wit and heart--it's great to be a Mom, but oh so challenging. Two of our four children and my husband have Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder affecting all their bodies tissue (i.e. lungs, heart, eyes, spine, joints etc.) We have faced some challenges but my children never cease to amaze me with the courage, determination, compassion, support and wisdom they show me and each other. I have learned that there is no reason to wait to live your dreams and so I play the piano, guitar, flute, saxophone, Bass guitar, fiddle (a little) and I run. I pound out my joy, grief, stress and anger on the keys, strings, and the pavement. Music breathes life to me when I'm overwhelmed. There has never been anything to touch my soul quite like it. On the other hand, never before have I been a runner, in fact nine months ago I couldn't even walk due to a neurological disorder and in the last four months I have been blessed to be able to run the BolderBoulder 10k, and am preparing to run my first 1/2 Marathon in four weeks. I love my family and love being with them. I am cranky at times, but always quick to mend and ever ready with love and laughs. Life is to short to wait to live tomorrow.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it's true. Throughout my life through pain, joy, sorrow, anger, love, guilt everything Christ's gospel has always been there and filled me with what I lacked. I have learned you can and must trust Jesus and our Father in Heaven if you really want to be happy. I feel great peace in my heart knowing that no matter what I am faced with I have no need to fear. I know That Christ lives and I have full access to his love and power. Though life throws mountains to climb, being a Mormon helps me see the beautiful possibilities all along the way.

How I live my faith

My faith is me. I found my Father in Heaven early and he's always ALWAYS been there. I have found sanctuary and wisdom beyond my years in the stories and lives of those told about in the scriptures. President Ezra Taft Benson, once said: "read the scriptures every day, at least one something, a verse, a chapter, but one a day." I heard that wisdom when I was young and my life has been greatly blessed for following it. Experiences like that have taught me that it is the little things that make the biggest difference. The daily choice to read my scriptures, to speak with a kind words instead of sarcasm, and ever talking and reaching out to Christ for strength to be like him in all I do. This life is unpredictable and so I try to help others and play hard when ever I can bringing as many friends and family with me as I can.
