Hi I'm Karissa

I work in customer service. I love to bake. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 9 years to a really awesome guy. We met in college playing volleyball and once we started dating, I was hooked. Two years ago our son came along and made me a mom, which is the best ever. Besides hanging out with the two men in my life, I like to cook and bake, play volleyball, hike, camp, and read. I am pretty shy so it takes a while for me to open up with new people. I would rather hang out with just a few friends than a big group.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I believe it. The doctrines make sense to me. It feels right. One of the doctrines of the Church that I believe is that that families can be united together eternally, sealed together forever. Several years ago my brother died at the age of 25. When he passed away I learned that I really believe that this doctrine is true and real. My brother has gone from this life but there is no doubt in my mind that, if I live the best life I can and have faith in Jesus Christ, I can see my brother again. This helped me get through a time in my life that was almost overwhelming. I believe that families can be together forever. I believe that my husband and I have a marriage that will last beyond the bounds of death and that our son and future children will be a part of our eternal family. For this reason and many others reasons, I choose to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a youth leader in my church, I work specifically with the girls. We have activities for them once a week and a special meeting just for these young women on Sundays. I help teach at those Sunday meetings and help plan the weekly activities. Everything we do for these young women is with the goal of helping them become women that will be virtuous, confident, capable, and loving. We try to give them opportunities to learn and develop so that when they enter the 'real world' they can thrive.
