Hi I'm Kimberly

I'm a Mormon. I was born and raised in Arizona. I'm married, have two kids and work full-time as a Systems Administrator.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful man who takes care of our children while running his small business. We have two children, ages 7 & 5. They are sooo different from each other and both provide so much joy and laughter in our lives. I also work full time as a Network Administrator for a small business. I have an Associates in Arts (general studies) and just started the pathway program offered through the church to earn a Bachelors degree from BYU-I. When I'm not working, studying or spending time with my family, I enjoy sewing, crafts, playing the piano and in those rare times, reading. Our family enjoys outdoor activities together as well, like bike riding, camping, playing, and taking walks in our neighborhood. The gospel can bring so much direction and understanding to our lives if we let Christ in. Some times we have to remind ourselves where we're at and what we're supposed to be doing but Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are always there for us.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it's where I feel good. I was born and reaised LDS. My father's side of the family is not LDS but my mother's side is. When I left home at 18, I chose not to go to church and although I have never questioned Heavenly Father, the Savior or even The Church, I was not willing to live the standards that I felt had been pushed on me by my mom. After living life without standards and without the gospel, I became lonely. I found that when I made an effort to read my scriptures and attend church, I had a feeling of peace and contentment. It wasn't because of the people at church, but because of the Holy Ghost guiding and directing me. I know that without the Gospel, I feel lost and empty.

How I live my faith

My husband and I teach 8 year olds in Sunday school. While there are days that they can be rambunctious, we really enjoy the opprotunity to watch them learn and grow. This is our second year teaching this class and our third year as primary teachers. I also visit teach three women with a companion that helps keep me on my toes. It's nice to have the faith and commitment of others to guide you through when you are weak.
