Hi I'm Kathy.

I am a stay-at-home mother of 3 little boys. I grew up in Charlotte, NC. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a hard-working mother and wife. I graduated from college with a finance major and worked for a big 4 accounting firm out of school in the forensic group. I love working on excel spreadsheets. Now I am a stay-at-home mother of 3 boys. My husband and I have been married for almost 10 years now. We love to ski and hike together. I enjoy helping my children learn and seeing them achieve. I am also a sister and a daughter. I am #4 of 5 children (2 brothers and 2 sisters). My family members live throughout the US and I enjoy getting together with them at reunions or when I visit my parents in Charlotte, NC.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were previously Methodist. They were visited by 2 sister missionaries from our church before I was born. I am grateful they listened to and accepted the message of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. That being said, I grew up a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I remember when I realized that even though I grew up in the church, I could ask God if what I had been taught all my life was true... If the Book of Mormon was true, if Joseph Smith really was a prophet of God that restored the full gospel of Jesus Christ. I had just finished reading the Book of Mormon, when I decided to ask in prayer if it was true. I felt silly at first asking, but still proceeded since I really did want my own answer. The next morning when I re-opened my Book of Mormon and re-read the introduction about how Joseph Smith received the Book of Mormon, this amazing feeling of warmth and love just covered me. I knew that what I was reading and what I had learned from a young girl was true.

How I live my faith

I currently volunteer in the church through the cub scouting program. But I have helped in the past with working with the young women. I've organized their summer camp experience and taught the youth on Sundays. I also enjoy singing in the choir. One ward I went to in New Mexico had a very talented singing and orchestra base and each Christmas time, we'd sing pieces from Handel's Messiah while accompanied by an orchestra. It was the most fabulous singing experience I've had yet. People from the community were invited to sing/play as well.
