Hi I'm Kathy

I married the man of my dreams and I recently moved to the Pacific Northwest, where I didn't know anyone. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I married my sweet husband in January 2011. Between the two of us we have 8 children and 14 grandchildren. When we all get together it's a whole lotta craziness, and I wouldn't have it any other way! I love to create beauty in any space I'm in. I love teaching my grandchildren to unleash their creativity. And if they mess up or it's not exactly how they want it to be, they can start over. I want them to know that it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful...that goes for an art project as well as their sweet little souls. I love them when they are happy and even when they are pouty! (But happy is more fun)

Why I am a Mormon

I have read the Book of Mormon. I know it to be the word of God. The Holy Ghost has born witness to my very core that Jesus Christ atoned for my sins. Which means I can repent and have a fresh, clean, bright white canvas to begin again. I don't have to be perfect to be beautiful! Knowing that I can be with my family forever makes me want to be the best wife and mom and grandma I can be in this life.

How I live my faith

When we serve others we are following the teachings of Jesus Christ. Whether it's painting a house in our community through a project called 'Paint Tacoma Beautiful', or having activity day with fun little 8 and 9 year old girls, teaching them the beauty of service to their families, or visiting a mother and daughter who are both battling cancer, each small act of service brings joy to my life. I feel my love increase for those I serve.
