Hi I'm Kari.

I'm a military wife, a mother, a friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As a military wife and my hubby being deployed or away from home a lot, I am constantly trying to entertain my young children. We love outings to the zoos, children's museums, parks; namely ones with swings, and lots of play groups. I also enjoy an evening in with friends after the kids have gone to bed watching a movie, working on a craft oh! and don't forget the dessert.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it makes sense. I have been blessed to be a member of the church my whole life. I've always had a testimony knowing that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has the fulness of truth. Granted I have struggled and have had bad days, but doesn't everybody? The thing that helps me is remembering what my Savior went through to give us this life. When I remember that I can turn to Him for his guidance. He's always there and will help if we only ask. I want to share with you one instance that made my faith grow. My young son was sick and coughing for hours. He would toss and turn trying so hard to get decent rest. I did everything I could to make him comfortable. It wasn't enough and I felt frustrated and helpless. I did the next best thing. I knelt down in prayer and asked our Heavenly Father to make my son comfortable at least for the night. Immediately, my son stopped coughing. We all slept peacefully through the night. I know it was the power of God through Jesus Christ that made this possible. I am so ever grateful for my knowledge of what Jesus Christ has done for me and my family.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am teaching a children's Sunday school class and I enjoy it! The children are excited to learn about the mission of Jesus and an Exemplar he was and still is in his pre mortal life, His mortal life and His life after death. I visit a few sisters each month in their home. I share a small message from the First Presidency of the Church and get to know that sister as a friend. I try to hold Family Home Evening one day a week each month with my kids. We have a mini lesson about how we should be living as Christ wants us to. It's great family time.
