Hi I'm Kim

I was a college athlete. I'd live on the beach if my husband would let me and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am one of the most competitive people I know. Anything that I can turn into a competition, I do. I was never in organized sports until middle school, but I started playing volleyball in high school and ended up getting a full ride scholarship to a division one college for it. I love playing all sports and any kinds of games. I love getting dirty by backpacking and hiking, especially when showering is optional. I love being outside, whether it be by the mountains, dessert or ocean. The softer side of me likes to craft, quilt, scrapbook, toy around with photography and cook. My amazing husband gets the joy of experiencing a new meal every week. I haven’t been blessed with kids yet, so I’ve been thinking about having dogs instead. My sarcasm usually gets me into trouble, but it has never stopped me from cracking a joke. I love life and everything it has to offer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a Mormon in Southern California. Both of my parents were converted when they were in their late teens/early twenties. Because of their strong testimonies in our Savior Jesus Christ, it helped strengthened mine as I grew up. I was never forced to go to church or be a member of the church, but I always had a strong desire to be. Being a Mormon has definitely given me the strength that I needed during difficult times in my life. By having the standards that the church encourages, it always gave me a crutch to lean on. I also love all of the opportunities that this church gives me. I enjoy the chance that I have to work with the youth, to donate money to help those in my local area and to help perform service projects in our community. I’m a Mormon because I love the fact that this church expects me to always work on becoming a better me and that it gives me all of the tools that I need to do it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by staying true to the standards that I know to be right. When I was in college I was one of six LDS members at my University. By being in that situation I had a lot of chances to differentiate myself from everyone else. I never went out and drank alcohol with my friends or smoked or did drugs with anyone. Once I stood my ground on what I believed in, no one would even ask or offer me a drink because they knew what my answer would be. I also live my faith by trying to make it a weekly, if not daily aspect of my life. There are always multiple activities going on every week and I try to do my best by being at as many of them as I can. I do my best to share my testimony of my Savior Jesus Christ in every action and deed that I do.
