Hi I'm Karla

I am wife, a mother and a daughter. I am a blogger, a student, and a worker. I am a busy busy woman and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I think I am a just an average woman trying to do the best I can each day. I am a mother to four wonderful human beings who enrich my life every day. I am a wife to a supportive and loving husband who I feel so blessed to have in my life. I am also a daughter, a college student, a friend, and a worker. In my free time I enjoying blogging about my family, my experiences and even my random thoughts. Every day I am just a woman putting one foot in front of the other and trying to do it better than the day before.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because when I was a very young girl I knew something was missing in life. I wanted to know God, really know him so I started researching churches. I visited different churches with friends and neighbors that were wonderful and loving and made me feel welcome. Then one day through the conversation with a young 9 year old girl I found the Mormon Church. I knew the first time I went that it was where I belonged, that it was home. I had found my Heavenly Father and his truths. After 2 years of learning about the Gospel of Jesus Christ I was baptized at 11 years old. I was the only member in my family. As I have grown older I have built on that foundation of truth and feel so blessed to continue nurturing and growing a relationship with my Savior. I am so grateful for the feelings of the spirit to a young child to impress a desire to know him and I am so thankful for the support of a loving mother who saw the true desires of an innocent child. Regardless of the challenges I have faced or the questions I have had regarding faith, I always go back to the most important fact, this is Jesus Christ's gospel and in it and through him all truths are found. I am so grateful.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by practicing my beliefs. I do my best to attend church, teach my class assignment and visit sisters in my ward and help as needed. I hope that I am always striving to live the best life I can and stand as a positive representative of Jesus Christ. I work daily to grow closer to him and follow his example of goodness. Sometimes I fail and so I live my faith by repenting and continuing to strive to be better. I live my faith by teaching my children about the Savior Jesus Christ, The Plan of Happiness and setting an example of righteousness. It is my prayer that I get that right more often than not. Mostly, I try to live my faith by having a willing heart to serve God in any way and at any time he needs me. I think that is most important and I always need to work harder to do that.
