Hi I'm Kar

I am honored to live in Gilbert, Arizona, USA. Our mayor is a Mormon and a TEMPLE is being constructed here!

About Me

Married--sealed to husband and oldest son on second anniversary, in the Salt Lake Temple! I have four sons, two daughter-in-laws (yay), two grandsons and one granddaughter. My primary concern in life is attempting to effectively NURTURE these "kids". Professionally, I help individuals cope with mental and emotional challenges and am blessed to have an office in my home. I enjoy living in the desert but escape to the beaches of Southern California for respite. In both locations I enjoy water sports, hiking, biking and golf.

Why I am a Mormon

While pregnant with my oldest son, I became anxious about the uncertainty of what I believed about spirituality and religion. I grew up in an LDS home and in a major metropolitan area, so I was exposed to many different races, religions and ideas of spirituality. I was well-connected to God and was comfortable praying. I prayed humbly, for guidance, to help me find THE truth about the correct way to worship Him. I was drawn to the Book of Mormon and decided I needed to give the book a serious study. I then, genuinely and sincerely, took on the challenge offered in Moroni, chapter 10:3-5. I had a warm and powerful manifestation from my Heavenly Father, through the gift of the Holy Ghost, that the book was true and ALL the principles and ordinances available in this Church were the correct way to worship. I have done every thing in my power to help this son, and his brothers, come to know this truth for themselves.

How I live my faith

I try to consistently respond to the gift of the Holy Ghost, especially regarding those people under my stewardship, or responsibility. I take calls to serve in my ward, or congregation, seriously because I believe they are from God and will lead to my growth and development. I have served in the womens' organization, the organization for teenage girls, the childrens' organization and Scouting. I value Scouting and have supported each of my boys in getting their Eagle Rank.
