Hi I'm Kim

I am a mom of 5 who likes to go four wheeling, camping and shooting. I coach volleyball. I play the violin. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I have 5 kids. We love to take them riding 4 wheelers on the weekend, or anytime during the week for that matter! My husband built a track with jumps and turns and a tunnel. Kids love it and so do we. We also enjoy hiking. There are so many beautiful places to hike in Colorado. I am a stay at home mom. I love trying new things. I love classic cars, love to quilt, ride 4 wheelers, shoot guns, camp, read books, play the violin, cook and play board games with my family. I also enjoy having friends over for dinner or for a party. We entertain as often as we can. We also have weekly date night! We do anything from dinner and a movie to bowling to target shooting. I love being a mom and watching my children grow. They are a great bunch of kids. They are quick to help someone and care about those around them. One thing our family enjoys doing every Christmas is the 12 Days of Christmas. We have cheesy little poems that go with each night. We leave a stocking on the door and then for the next 11 nights we bring little treats. I think the kids' favorite part is ringing the doorbell and running! This is a tradition our family loves to do.

Why I am a Mormon

I always loved going to church when I was a kid. I went with anyone who would take me. My parents were both converts. My dad was baptized with his mom and sister. My mom was baptized shortly after I was born. They didn't go to church very often. As I got older I began to ask questions. The missionaries came over and taught my brother and I the discussions. I was 12 years old, I still remember the slide show they did on the wall in our home. The story of Joseph Smith. After watching that and learning more about our Heavenly Father I was ready to be baptized. I was so excited! Easter Sunday my brother and I were both baptized. I still remember the feeling I felt afterwards. I felt very happy. 2 years after that was the most wonderful experience. My parents were sealed in the Chicago Temple for time and eternity. Then us kids were sealed to them! It was so awesome to be able to be a part of that. I knew I wanted to be married in the temple. I met my husband soon after he came home from his mission. We were married in the Chicago Temple for time and all eternity. It was the most beautiful day! My husband and I both worked hard to be able to go to the temple. Seeing my parent's example and having good people around me encouraged me to aspire to my goals. I love the gospel and I know it is true. I know my Heavenly Father loves me. I know that Jesus atoned for our sins and that He lives! I know the Book of Mormon is true. I know that we have a living prophet on the earth today. President Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God. I know he is inspired of the Lord. I know that Joseph Smith's vision and restoration are true. I know that the sealing powers of the temple will allow me to be with my husband and family in the eternities. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon, of tithing, of prayer, of fasting, of living the Word of Wisdom, of temple marriage, of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Ltter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

Every morning my husband and I begin the day in prayer. Our oldest then attends a scripture study class in the home of a teacher, who volunteers her time to teach a bunch of teenagers about the gospel of Christ. Did I mention this is at 6am every morning? It is called seminary. Our family has regular family prayer every evening before bed. Weekly we have family night, better known as Family Home Evening. It could be a formal lesson or just time spent together doing something as a family. My calling at church is ward chorister. Sounds fancy huh? I lead the music in sacrament meeting. It is so much fun! I love to look out and see the smiling faces while we are singing. I have had many callings. Activities committee was pretty fun. I got to plan parties for our ward! We sometimes had almost 300 people. It was alot of fun. I have served in the Relief Society, which is the largest women's organization in the world! It was alot of work, but so worth the time and effort. I've served as the President of the Young Women, a teacher for 8 yr olds, a nursery leader, organist, camp director, and so much more. They are all volunteer positions. We do not get payed to do our callings. All of these callings taught me so many things. The most important being charity. I am grateful to be able to serve my Heavenly Father and also my fellow man.
