Hi I'm Kady Lieber

I'm a designer. I'm a mom. I love to travel and live in different places in the world and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kady Lieber. I am an interior designer from the USA. I am currently living in Switzerland but before I moved here I lived in China where I was designing 5 star hotels all over Asia. When I was 28 I moved to China. Everyone thought I was crazy. They all thought I would end up an old maid and never have a family or get married. One month after I moved to China I met my husband, who is also from Utah. 9 months later we were married in December 2006 and lived in Beijing together for almost one year. After our year in Beijing we moved to Utah for 9 months before we moved to Switzerland. Right before our second wedding anniversary we were talking about our adventures and realized that we had been married for 2 years and we had lived in 3 countries, 3 continents, 3 cities. I love to travel. I love it! I love to learn about new cultures and especially love to visit third world countries. I also love all things design. Interior, graphic, industrial, product design...You name it, I love design! My daughter Taylar was born a year after we moved to Switzerland. It was tough to give up my career to raise my daughter, but it has really been worth it. They aren't young for very long and I am trying to savor each moment. Being a mom is hard. It's the hardest job I have ever done, yet it's the most rewarding. It has been interesting for me to live in other countries and see how the gospel influences those I meet. I am fortunate to be a part of a wonderful church!

Why I am a Mormon

Even if you have grown up in the mormon church, as I have, you still have to find your own belief and testimony of the mormon gospel. There have been a few distinct moments in my life where I have really gained my own belief in the LDS church. With my travels I get a lot of questions about being a mormon. A lot of people are interested in what makes us believe and what makes us love our gospel so much. I love my gospel because of the peace it brings to me. With the gospel of the mormon church by my side, I know I can go through anything or do anything as long as I am living right. It's that simple. I know, as long as I am living the gospel, I will be okay in the life, no matter what happens to me. Life is hard, being a mormon helps life be a lot easier. WIth my travels there have been a lot of times where I have felt alone or afraid. I know at any moment, (believe me there have been a lot of moments) I can get on my knees and pray to my heavenly father to comfort me, guide me and direct me to what I need to do or where I need to go. I am a mormon because I know it's true. I'm a mormon because life not being a mormon, just wouldn't be life to me. I love being a mormon and I love my church! And no matter where you go, you can always find a mormon who is there to help love and support you.

How I live my faith

I am currently living in a ward that speaks German. Since my German isn't very good, it's been difficult for me to be involved in ward callings. Though, recently my husband and I were called to be the young single adult advisors in our ward. It has been such a fun experience hanging out with the single adults in our ward. They are so patient with me and my lack of German. I am amazed at how these young people know and love the gospel so much. This calling has made me feel more connected in a ward that most the time I don't understand. It just goes to show you, you can communicate with things other than words. I love my calling and I love the single adults in Switzerland.

What is faith?

Kady Lieber
In 2006 I was given a decision. Move to the west coast to work as a designer, work on the east coast as a designer or move to china and work as a designer. I had just moved back to the states from China and didn't want to move there again. I prayed and prayed about what I should do and the answer kept coming to me that I needed to move to China. Moving to China meant a pay cut and living alone, in a new city not knowing anyone. I realized that I just needed to have faith that this what the right thing to do so I did it. I moved to Shanghai. The first month in Shanghai was horrible. I hated every moment of it. I hated my job, I hated shanghai, and I really questioned my choice. I kept telling myself I just needed to have faith I made the right decision. One month after I moved to Shanghai and was hating every second of it, I met my future husband, who was from the same state and area I was. Had I not had enough faith to take that huge leap, I don't know where i would be right now. To me, faith is believing, but not just believing for a moment, faith is believing and keeping that belief strong, even when hard times arise. Show more Show less
