Hi I'm Kari

I am a mother of 5. I love my family, sports, and food. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Southern California and I love the sunshine and the sound of the waves at the beach. As a kid I loved playing sports especially soccer. I met my husband at BYU Provo and we are now busy raising our 5 kids. I enjoy being with my family, watching my kids play in their games, and I also love to bake.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all of my life and I am grateful for the foundation that the Gospel gave me. I feel peace when I am at church and learning about my Savior. I have been very blessed to have wonderful parents who taught me the teaching of my Savior and they have been good examples through their actions. I have lived the teachings and have found that so many blessings have followed. I want to be with my family forever. I know that through the teaching of the Gospel I can have that blessing.

How I live my faith

I have worked with the youth of the church for the past 12 years. They are a great example to me as I watch them make good choices and hard decisions with all of the pressures that they face. I attend church each week with my family. I pray and read my scriptures so that I can have the peace that comes when I do this. I spend Monday nights with my family learning, singing, playing, and eating treats. We call this Family Home Evening and it's a great time to teach and learn in an informal setting. I pay my tithing because it is my way to show the Lord that I am grateful for all that he has given me. I am honest and try to be a good friend. I try to teach my kids by my example how to be a good person. I have been so blessed and the Gospel of Jesus Christ is everything to me.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Everywhere I look is an evidence that there is a God. I see God in my children's smiling faces, in the beautiful sunsets, and I can feel his love when I hear beautiful music. I pray and receive answers to my exact questions. Show more Show less
