Hi I'm Kathy

I love music, sewing and being in nature. I love being a mom and a grandma and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently relocated to Texas from Colorado with our family so that my husband can further his education. This has been a big transition for all of us in many different ways. I am now working to help provide for our family while my husband works and attends school. We did this 25 years ago when we were first married, so in a sense, history is repeating itself in some ways. I have always felt that change is a good thing. It helps us to awaken our senses and learn more about who and what is around us. I have always loved to experience the beauty of our world and enjoy hiking, backpacking, biking and snowshoeing to see sights that many don't see. I like to make my home a place of joy and peace from this crazy world, although our family gatherings are anything but peaceful. . . we are always laughing and have the same goofy sense of humor.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be raised in a home where the gospel of Jesus Christ was taught to me from an early age, and was baptized at the age of eight. Our family was not perfect, but I learned what choices I needed to make to lead a happy life. I have had my ups and downs, fear and doubts, but the one constant has been the Gospel and it's teachings. I found that as I studied and learned, made choices and learned about being accountable, I was lead to those things that are most dear to me. I was able to serve a mission for the Church and it was there that my testimony grew as I studied and taught what I knew to be true in my own life. I have learned how much our Heavenly Father loves us and entrusts each one of us as we learn line upon line to grow our faith.

How I live my faith

I have always believed that what I believe should be obvious by how I live my life. I have always felt it was important to serve in the community; for example, volunteer in my childrens' classes in school. I was able to teach an after-school spanish class that became the start of the school district's push to have the spanish language taught at the elementary school level. Our family always participated in clean-up days in our small town, wrapping Christmas packages for those less fortunate in our community, and helping with local fund raisers. Service in the community is what makes it strong and helps us to feel a part of something bigger than just us. I have served with the children and youth at church and with the women as well. There is always something that we can do to help those around us.
