Hi I'm Kim

I grew up in Canada and have lived in New Zealand and the USA. I am a mother of 4 and a grandmother of 10. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kim. I am 52 years old and I grew up in Ontario, Canada. I moved with my family to New Zealand when I was 16 years old and lived there for almost 4 years. I met my husband there and we were married in the Hamilton, New Zealand LDS Temple. We moved to the USA where my husband was from. He started school and we started a family. We have 4 children and 10 grandchildren. I love music and sing in the church choir. I love Genealogy and am totally addicted to it right now. I love finding out about my ancestors and feeling that connection to those who have gone before me. I love spending time with my grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Anglican Church (Church of England). I was very active most of my life. In fact I used to go alone with my friend when the rest of my family stopped going. I was always searching for something. I attended a lot of church camps and other churches as well. It wasn't until the missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints started teaching me about the gospel that I realized that they were answering questions that I had had for years and wasn't able to get answers to. I felt that as they taught me that I wasn't learning something new. It was like they were helping me to remember things that I already knew. It all made sense in my mind and in my heart. I was baptized and have never looked back.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church I wake up each day and ask myself "How can I be better today?" I want to be like our Savior Jesus Christ and look to the scriptures daily so I can follow his example. I currently serve in our church in the Women's organization and coordinate monthly activities for the women. This month we are going to learn how to plant a garden. I have served in many ways through the years, as a children's chorister, a secretary, teaching various age groups, a choir director, a Young Women's Leader, a camp director and more. Each of these responsibilities has helped me to grow in so many ways. Each month I visit several women to give them a lesson and help them in any way I can. It is a great way to develop friendships and as you know we come to love those we serve.
