Hi I'm Kaylene

I'm a former full time technical writer turned stay-at-home mom and am loving every minute of it. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a sister to four brothers, a daughter to separated parents, a wife to the greatest man alive, and a mother to the most wonderful 20-month old little boy. I have a degree in English, Technical Writing and love to use it for good (or evil) whenever I can...mostly in the blogging world. I had a hard time deciding to be a stay-at-home mom simply because I felt too spoiled. Being able to stay home with my adorable, genious, hilarious little angel seemed too good to be true, and it totally is! I'm just waiting for a boulder to land on our house - or something more realisic - to prove I'm not dreaming. I'm really low maintanance and love the simple things in life, like splashing at the splash pad, grocery shopping with my husband, cleaning out the guest room closet, and taking trips to Utah to see our families.

Why I am a Mormon

It would be easy to say I'm a mormon because I was raised in an active LDS family. But I've seen enough of my friends and relatives struggle with their beliefs to know that each of us has to go through our own conversion, no matter how we came to know the gospel of Jesus Christ. I can't say I've had any life-changing or miraculous experiences, but I know the gospel is true through all the times it has comforted me and all the blessings I continually recieve through living the commandments. But most of all I know the gospel is true because I have asked God for myself and have recieved an overwhelming feeling of peace and happiness on more than one occasion. I know that God is real. I know He answers my prayers. And I know he cares about me indivudually and wants me to share that with others.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am serving in the church as a cub scout den leader to the wolves (the 8-year-old boys). When I was first asked to do this, someone referred to me as literally being "thrown to the wolves" and that's what it feels like most weeks. But as I have asked for help in my prayers, I have found an excitement and a love for each of the boys. Aside from my formal calling in cub scouts, I try to use the blessing of being a stay-at-home mom to serve those around me. I love being able to give people rides, invite them to play groups, and overall just be a friend wherever I can. I have been blessed so greatly in my life, I know that I could help someone every single day and still never be able to give back enough. That's the great thing about this church. You are given opportunities to help, which make you feel great, and then are blessed even more just for your willingness to serve.
