Hi I'm Keturah

I'm a mother, I'm a wife, I'm a friend, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised here in Arizona and have lived within about a 40 mile radius all my life. My parents divorsed when I was young and my father remarried twice so my family is big and unique with lots of wholes, halfs and steps but we all love each other just the same. I married my highschool sweet heart almost 8 years ago and we have a toddler and another on the way. I work from home managing a local real estate office and enjoy being able to have as much time with my little ones as I can while at the same time being able to contrubute to the family finances. I like to bake and sew but I really love to learn anything to contribute to my creative side! I often endevor to try and figure out how to create new things from whatever I have or find in my home - sometimes I find great success and sometimes I just get a great laugh!

Why I am a Mormon

Since I was a small child I have always felt that families should be together forever. My mother taught me how to pray to God and I often felt that families are a special thing to Him. When I was eight and shorly after being baptised as a member of the LDS church my family decided to not be a part of the church anymore and I began seeking out other christian options for religion and visited many local christian churches. In highschool I took a world religions class at the local community college to try and better educate myself on my religious options but I couldnt seem to find the feeling of safty or security that I had as a young girl when I would pray to God about families. In highshool I met my husband who is a member of the LDS church and I began to go to church with him. For many years I prayed and read the book of mormon, asked a lot of questions and tried to find all the answers to my questions about God, family, faith, life, death, love, forgiveness and true happiness. As I look back on my long and timly conversion to the gospel I am so thankful that God allowed my to find all these answers in the time that was best for me and as I continued to seek these answers with an honest heart my faith in Him and relationship with him grew and grew. I am so thankful to have the gospel in my life, as it has helped me to grow as a woman, a mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter and a friend. I have found that same feeling of safty and security within the knowledge that the LDS church has brought me as well as the personal relationship with God that I now have as well.

How I live my faith

The best way I have found to live my faith is through love and service. I have served in different callings within the LDS church such as a teacher for the 5 year old sunday school class, a leader for the 12-13 year old girls group as well as a Cub Scout Den leader for the Webelos. I have also served within our community humanitarian projects helping to knit small hats for the local hospitals babies, collectiing school supplies for the county, sewing quilts for those that need them, cleaning and doing yard maintanence at a local assisted living facility and the other monthly service projects that women in our local branch have coordinated for our community. I also have a personal goal to try and serve someone at least every week, this helps me to seek out opportunities to get to know people outside my church as well as within and have an opportunity to grow as I gain knowledge of the hardships that life can present as well as a love for those that I am serving.
