Hi I'm Kimberlee

I'm a wife, a mother of three, I run my own business, and I'm a Registered Nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up was really hard for me; I had such a hard time finding out who I was, and learning to like and indeed to love myself when it felt like no one did was my great challenge in my youth. Early on, I felt something - something - telling me...coaching me that I needed to love myself and make myself into somebody I could like -- and I did. When I graduated High School, I enlisted in the United States Coast Guard and spent 4-1/2 years serving my country. I have been married, abused, divorced and married again after years of being alone. As a single mother, I put myself through nursing school and built a great life close to my family. I love music...and I still enjoy playing my SAXAPHONE!!!! love spending time with my friends, helping my customers, serving in my community, seeing patients as a Home Heath Nurse, playing with my kids, dancing, spending time in the outdoors and helping others.I have re-married and have a wonderful husband and two more beautiful children....and a new baby toy poodle! Life can be tough -- but it is also what we make it! I have learned to be grateful for the lessons and enjoy life and love myself, my family and others!

Why I am a Mormon

During the end of my enlistment in the Coast Guard, my brother was killed and I found myself HUNGRY to know for myself if there was indeed a God. I wasn't looking for a church -- I just wanted to know if God was real - or - not. In the back of my mind, I never really thought I could find the answer to my questions, but I did start to read the Bible - especially the New Testament. I started going to different churches - I was hungry for truth. When I found the missionaries, and took the discussions - I began to recognize the sweet tingling sensations of the Holy Ghost and my desire to know - grew into a desire to believe that He was real and that He did love me and have a plan for me -- I wanted to believe the truth - if it were true.....that desire grew until one night - deep in prayer, after having attended a meeting at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints -- I had been going to the church and taking the discussions -- and that night, I knew - really knew that what I was learning, reading -- it was true. My belief and testimony in the gospel of Jesus Christ -- I count this as my most precious posession!

How I live my faith

I often pray for help as a mother, wife, when I'm teaching at church, and before I go to help my patients. My heart thrills to help people, and I know that when I do something really right for someone else, it's the Lord working thru me for His children. For me, it's an honor to (hopefully) be a conduit for Him. And for me -- that feels really good. My relationship with the Savior is important to me, and it's so comforting to know that I'm not alone - that He knows the longings, the pains and the joys of my heart. He also knows EXACTLY where the person I'm with is - and what they need. I feel that when I rely on Him - He helps me connect - really connect with others to be able to help them -- and that really feels good. Just knowing the He knows ME - and really loves me gives me peace .... and real joy. I am a better person because of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

No, we don't worship Joseph Smith.....we worship God - Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ. We hold Joseph Smith in a place of deep respect as He was the Prophet who, under God's direction, restored the ancient church that Christ, himself established when He was on the Earth. I love knowing that God is the same today as He was yesterday -- that His Church is the same church that Jesus established when He was here on the Earth. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is again on the Earth! This is Christ's church .... not Joseph Smith's church. But, I am so grateful for this prophet who did as He was commanded to - to restore it again to the Earth. Show more Show less
