Hi I'm Kimberly

I used to an army medic who rappelled out of helicopters. I'm a wife, mom, family member caretaker and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First and foremost I'm a wife and a mom but I've had a long career in the dental field until hanging up my dental instruments to take care of ailing family members a little over a year ago. I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to care for my mom, oldest brother and sister in law. Ever since striking out on my own and moving out of state after high school graduation I have wanted to live close to family! After 20 years of living across the country from my family I have many of us living under the same roof. My brother has C.P., Parkinson's and is mentally disabled, his sweet wife of 22 years is Downs and my mom has colin cancer. This June my family members moved in with my husband and I to make caring for them more inclusive and efficient. I love hanging out with family and friends, love to read, travel, shop and serve those around me.

Why I am a Mormon

Being of member of His church gives me hope. When I was young my brother would come home in tears on a regular basis begging my mom to take him to the hospital to have surgery to fix his brain so that he could be smarter, my brother cannot read or write and learns at the level of a 5 year old. I remember aching for him and wanting for him all of the things that many of us take for granted everyday; a wedded companion, children of his own, the ability to have a job, read, write and drive a car. It was heart breaking to witness his anguish over not being "normal". This was many years ago and my brother has a very full life that he shares with his former high school classmate and sweetheart of 22 years. While my brother cannot have children today he is married, holds a steady job and enjoys many forms of recreation. I still struggle at times as I watch the deterioration of my brother's body and ability to use his left leg, arm and hand but I have hope. I know that once my brother and his wife have completed their missions here on earth they will return to our Heavenly Father to be found perfect in all things and will be whole once again! I know that the Lord knows and loves each of us individually. His gospel teaches me to have joy, hope and a belief in miracles.

How I live my faith

In the Book of Mormon a scripture is found in Mosiah 2:17, "And behold, I tell you things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service or your fellow beings ye are in the service of your God." Jesus Christ lived and taught by example, he loved and served all. I live my faith by following Christ's example by seeking out opportunities to help those around me.
