Hi I'm Kae

I'm a wife and mommy of three. I am an aspiring triathlete. I am bilingual. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a proud momma of three darling “crazies.” They are the joy of my life and what keep me grounded. I sometimes think of myself as a “jack of all trades master of none,” because I love hiking and biking, scrapbooking and photography, swimming and running, camping and singing, reading and organizing. I am bilingual, but I would love to learn at least two other languages. I am working towards a degree in mathematics and I tutor math ‘cause I am a nerd like that. I aspire to complete and Ironman Triathlon at least once in my life and look forward to racing, it keeps me motivated to exercise.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from GENERATIONS of Latter-Day Saints so much of the teachings of the gospel are almost in my blood. This is not why I am still a mormon, well maybe a little. I learned for myself as a teenager and young adult that my Savior and Heavenly Father love me dearly and long to have me return to them. I know that as I follow Christ’s example I will be able to do just that. I have prayed about the church, Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon and had those powerful feelings you get when you know something to be true. That is why I am a mormon, because I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and the teachings it teaches are true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to follow Jesus Christ’s example. I try to keep myself in a good place mentally and emotionally so that I can be there for others when they need me. When an opportunity presents itself to serve others I jump at the chance. Some of my favorite things to do for people is to cook meals or cookies or make them a meaningful craft. I also work hard to not judge anyone. I think it is important to respect differences in others and their beliefs and hopefully they can respect me in return.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

All mormons are not required to serve a mission. However, missions provide us an opportunity to dedicate 100% of our time, for 18 months or 2 years, to serving others and help them understand what we believe. When I was 21 I took the opportunity to serve a mission and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I will encourage my children to do the same, but if they choose not to that will be ok too. Show more Show less
