Hi I'm Kim

I am a mother of four and a grandmother of six. I am a lunch lady. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I married my high school sweetheart and we have celebrated 29 years of marriage. We love having all of our children and grandchildren over for Sundy dinner. We have six grandsons and one more on the way. We wonder where the granddaughters are but we feel so blessed to have so many healthy happy boys. For me, family is what life is all about. I enjoy my job at the school where I serve over 300 hungry children lunch every day. I have worked in the school district as a teaching assistant and as a lunch lady. One of my interests is sign language. I learned it when I was in college and have a close friend who is deaf. I interpret for her at church. I would love to be a sign language interpreter some day. Recently I lost my father to cancer. He was such a support and anchor for me. I miss him greatly. I am planning on doing Relay for Life to raise money for cancer research. I organized a group a few years ago and would like to do that again. It just feels good to do something positive to combat such an ugly disease. My personal motto is "I can make a difference!" I really do believe we can all make a difference in the lives of those around us, with a positive attitude and a willingness to reach out and serve.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon family. My parents did not go to church but were both baptized members. My younger sister and I attended the children's meetings. I was baptized when I was eight years old. As I grew older, my faith and belief grew and I gained a testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. I know my life has been so blessed by my knowledge that I am a daughter of God and that there is a purpose for me on this earth. The gift of the Holy Ghost I received when I was confirmed has been such a guide and comfort to me all of my life. I can't imagine life without the gospel.

How I live my faith

I have been an active member of the Church my whole life. I have served in different ways. Most of my time I have spent working with the young children, ages 18 months to 12 yrs. As a teacher and leader I have enjoyed teaching the children about their Heavenly Father and about the gospel. One of my favorite things I have been given the opportunity to do is serve in the Cub Scouting program. I really loved helping these young boys make goals and achieve them. I have a creative side in me and I just loved doing crafts and singing songs and performing skits at pack meetings. Currently, I have been given the opportunity to work in the women's organization as the president. I have many chances to serve and teach and I really enjoy it. At times I feel I am inadequate at meeting the various needs but I have faith that the Lord will strengthen and help me when I just dont' think I can.
