Hi I'm Kimberly

I'm a wife and a mom (teacher, chef, chauffeur, motivational speaker, and a referee). I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother to 6 children who keep me constantly running and going! I'm married to a wonderful man who is a great father. I enjoy being with my family, travelling, exercising, gardening, quilting, and crafting.

Why I am a Mormon

I've always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My ancestors are some of those who joined the church while living in Europe and then travelled across the ocean and United States as pioneers. As the generations grew, my great great grandparents, great grandparents, grandparents, and parents remained strong and faithful in the church. This carried over to how I was raised, always being active in the church. As I have grown up and gotten older, I've gained my own testimony of Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith, and the restored gospel. I think my biggest testimony strengthener was when I was a seminary student in high school and my teacher presented a fantastic lesson about the Atonement. Without a doubt, I know that Jesus Christ died for my sins so that I can repent and live with Him and Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

In my life, I strive to pray daily. I also read the scriptures, usually daily. I attend an institute class, or a class about religion, once a week. In past years we have studied messages and talks from the apostles of the church in General Conference. This year we are doing an in-depth study of the Book of Mormon. I have also set it as my goal to attend the temple twice a month, usually it's an early-morning session on Saturday. At the temple, I am able to find peace which helps to get me through the crazy times of my life. In my ward, I have two responsibilities. First, I am a visiting teacher where I visit three women and give them a short lesson each month. My second responsibility is being a Faith In God (or Activity Days) leader. I work with the 10-year old girls in my ward. We meet twice a month and work on goals and activities in three different areas - developing talents, serving others, and learning and living the gospel.
