Hi I'm Kimberly

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First and foremost I am proud to say that I am a wife and a mother of 4 spunky, strong willed, compassionate children. I am lucky that I am able to be a "stay at home mom" (not very descriptive because we rarely to stay home). I was a 5th grade teacher for years before I had my first baby. I continue to fill my teaching desire by teaching a music program called, Let's Play Music, for young children. I love it! Obviously I have a love for music and I really wanted my children to have it in their lives as well. Hence, the reason I became certified to teach Let's Play Music. I also do photography on the side. Another passion. My husband thinks I am crazy with the amount of photos that I take. However, there has never been a time that I have looked back on those memories and thought, "Hmmm, I wish I wouldn't have taken so many pictures." So, for now, I continue capturing every moment I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the church. It is just what we did. Every Sunday we would go to church as a family. The older I got, the more I realized that this wasn't what everybody else did. At a very early age I realized the way I felt when I was going to church and choosing to do the right. It was not hard for me to know that the spirit played a big role in my life. I am so thankful for the tough times our ancestors went through so I can be where I am today. The gospel has provided so many opportunities I would not have had otherwise. I know the gospel is true and pure. I grew up in an area that was not densely populated by mormons. In fact, in my graduating class of 850 students, I was the one and only mormon! I was very involved in school. I played 3 sports, participated in student council (on both a school and state level), the works. My friends (and everyone else) payed close attention to what I did and how I acted. It was no secret and many discussions were had because of my faith. I had to make choices very early on concerning drinking, drugs, etc. Once everyone knew where I stood it was amazing to see how they became "protective" over me. If someone didn't know me and offered a drink, my friends would stand up and answer for me before I could even stand up and answer for myself. I was an example. And I knew it. I can't imagine my life not being a mormon. Having the constant companion of the spirit to help guide me each and every day is such a blessing! I am continually learning and growing.

How I live my faith

My involvement in the church has been great. For 9 years I was the director of the youth choir for our church. These kids range anywhere from age 3 - 11. I would teach each Sunday as we worked towards our big performance. I loved hearing those little voices sing and worship each week. About 6 months ago I was given a different job of teaching the 14 year old Sunday School class. Now, I am back with the youth choir but as the pianist. This is my favorite job by far! I love going each week and using my skills to accompany the children as they learn. I think one of the biggest ways I live my faith is by being an example to those around me. What a difference you can make in someone's life by being kind and sharing how you live your life!
