Hi I'm Karen

I'm a wife, mother and grandmother, I'm a teacher, I'm a fiber artist. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Learning new things and teaching them to other people are two of my passions. I have wonderful hobbies like genealogy, quilting, crocheting, scrapbooking and baking. There is also nothing better in life than traveling and drinking in the culture with my husband and children. I adore spending time with my granddaughter when I get the chance.

Why I am a Mormon

My husband and I have always been active in a church, but I always felt there was something missing. I always knew deep in my soul that our families would go on after death, but my church always said we would be so happy in Heaven that we wouldn't miss our family. When we found this church and they actually taught that families are sealed together for time and all eternity, I knew I had found the truth I was missing. I also wondered why most churches don't believe in modern day revelation. Now I feel so comforted by the guidance of our leaders, especially our Prophet, as they receive revelation for our time and our situations. We became members of this church through a couple that were our friends because we noticed what a loving and respectful relationship they had. We had a good relationship, but we wanted a great relationship. We actually asked them what made their relationship so special before they ever told us what church they attended. Their answer was the teachings of this church about what a family should be like. Most of all we became members of this church because it revolves around the life of Jesus Christ and his and our Heavenly Father. Christ made the ultimate sacrifice for us, and at this church I feel the respect and honor He is due and feel the burning desire to serve Him. I have grown to have a much more personal relationship with Christ through going to this church.

How I live my faith

Something I enjoy doing every year is the ladies at church do at least one huge service project to benefit our community or to send somewhere in the world to help others. From making hats, gloves and scarves to making baby quilts to gathering items for homeless shelters, we have a chance to give to others and remind ourselves how blessed most of us are in this country. I also serve in the cub scout pack at our church. I know boys these days need extra direction and guidance. The cub scout program helps them to develop interests, and more importantly, character and respect.
