Hi I'm Kimberly

I'm Kimberly. I'm a wife, a mother, a daughter and a friend, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kimberly, but most people call me Kimmie. I love making up jokes, singing in the car at the top of my lungs, painting, reading, trying to make fancy cupcakes and meeting new people. I speak Spanish and French (sort of) and I love Thai food. Scrabble is my favorite game. I also love playing laser tag, and someday, I would like to learn how to tap dance! I have a Bachelor of Science in Family and Human Development. I am the first person in my family, on both sides, to ever graduate from college, and I try to mention that I graduated with honors whenever I can (: My best and most favorite accomplishment though is being a wife and a mother! I am so happy and blessed to be able to stay at home with my three children, and wake up to a new adventure with them everyday! Being able to spend my days with them, going to the library and the museum and the zoo, dressing up in costumes, making up stories, going on treasure hunts, making art and then telling Daddy every detail of our day each night is better than anything in the world to me!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the happiness the Gospel brings me is a happiness that can't be found anywhere else, and believe me, I have tried! I am a convert to the church. I was baptized when I was 10, but didnt always go a lot growing up and eventually stopped going all together. My Dad passed away when I was 17, and I didnt have much other family, so I was kind of on my own after that. Without the church in my life, I was happy at times, but other times I felt sad and lonely and empty, and I couldn't explain why. I looked for anything and everything to make me feel complete. I made lots of friends, started lots of different hobbies, tried lots of different jobs, but at the end of the day, nothing helped. Finally though, something did. I worked with 10 return missionaries, and I grew to adore each of them for the kindness and happiness they exuded. They didn't judge me for my lifestyle. Instead, they exemplified theirs, and I began to want what they had. It took a couple of years for me to act on it, but they never pressured me to come back to church, yet they always let me know I was welcome. Then, on Easter Sunday, 3 years after my Dad had passed away, I came back to church. I knew immediately that I had found what I'd been searching for. I knew with all my heart that I was in the right place. That was 8 years ago, and I have been going faithfully ever since. There has not been a day since that I have felt empty or alone. I know that I am a beloved daughter of God, and I don't need to look anywhere else to feel important or loved. I know that I have a Savior who knows me and loves me and is always there for me and aware of my needs. He is so real to me! While my life is not without trial, it is full of a perfect and complete peace and happiness that I know cannot be found elsewhere. I know that because of the Saviors Atonement, I can be forgiven of my sins and live with my family forever, and there is nothing in the world more important to me than that!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church, every Sunday, no matter what, so that I can learn and grow in His Gospel. I live it by reading scriptures to increase my knowledge and testimony, holding Family Home Evening to grow closer and stronger as a family and praying daily to grow closer to the Lord. I live my faith by serving in the church, teaching the children, to help them learn of our Savior's love for them and by going to church activities and meeting together often to make lifelong friendships and strengthen our bond as a ward family. I live my faith by loving others unconditionally and serving them in any way I can. I live my faith by being grateful everyday to the Lord that he has blessed me to be a member of His Gospel and showing my gratitude by trying to share with others the happiness that I have found. Sometimes I feel so happy I think I might explode, and I want other people to feel that, to have that pure joy that has nothing to do with fame or wealth or material things. The joy that comes from learning and obeying true principles that make yours and others' lives better!
