Hi I'm Kimberlee

I love to play soccer and read. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I began playing soccer when I was still in elementary school and I haven't stopped playing since. I simply love playing soccer and few things compare to the joy I feel when playing the game. I love to read in my spare time. I often read young adult fiction and fantasy novels. I enjoy photography even though I'm not any good at it simply because pictures are a great way to remember all the joys and challenges in life. When I was younger I learned to play the piano, but I never practiced and am not nearly as talented as I could be. This is something I often regret. In my family, I am the youngest of 4 children and the only girl. I know how it feels to be picked on and spoiled at the same time. Family is one of the most important things to me and I love my family very much. I can't imagine life without them. I recently got married to the love of my life and then we moved 3,000 miles from our extended family. It is hard being so far away, but I love doing new things and having new adventures. I love food! I like to find new recipes and attempt to cook them, but I am almost always dissatisfied with the result. I am almost graduated from college with my business management degree. I emphasized in human resource management and now I am a Human Resource Generalist. In the future, I hope to advance in my career, but more than anything I am looking forward to being a mom.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up being taught the principles and doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When I was a young youth I began to wonder if I really believed what I had been taught. I faithfully read the Book of Mormon from cover to cover and then prayed to know of its truthfulness. I did not have any grand revelations or feel anything too overwhelming, but in my heart I knew it was true. The feeling of peace that came upon me was undeniable. I little while later I was still wondering if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. My brother was on his mission and suggested that I read Moroni 7:12-13 which reads, "Wherefore, all things which are good cometh of God; and that which is evil cometh of the devil;..." I new that the joy that I had often felt at church and other church related activities and I felt this was another testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. The Lord continues to answer my question of whether or not this is the true church every time I sincerely ask in faith. I love my family so much and it means the world to me that the Lord has a plan so that families can be together forever. I know that the Savior has helped me through the most difficult times of my life and He loves me more than I can imagine. I know that He lived and died so that I can repent become like him (a goddess!), and have eternal life. The Lord's gospel is perfect even though I do not understand everything I know it is true. I know this church is led by a prophet, currently Thomas S. Monson, who receives personal revelation from God. I know that the boy Joseph Smith Jr. saw God and Jesus Christ and that through him God restored is gospel on the earth again.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith by keeping God's commandments. I have established a habit of daily personal scripture study and prayer. I was recently called as a Sunday School teacher to teach the youth ages 12-13. I prepare lessons, teach, and bear testimony to those youth. I go to church on Sunday and participate in as many church activities as possible. I strive to go to the temple on a regular basis. I also do my visiting teaching and have a special love for the women in my ward. I live my faith by being an example to other people by being kind to everyone, not speaking unkindly, doing service, and being honest. I also live my faith by repenting when I have not done what is right, whether it is something big or small. Each day I try to become a better person than I was the day before. I strive to keep my will aligned with the Lord's will and follow any personal revelation I receive.
