Hi I'm Kimberlee

I'm a wife to a very loving man, an assistant manager, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I married the most amazing, wonderful man that I have ever known on a beautiful day in May of 2010 in the temple of the Lord. We have a cat named Lily, who keeps us on our toes. My true ambition and calling is to be a mother. While we are very much looking forward to starting a family of our own, we have also found out that things don't always work out the way that you plan. Because of this, we have learned that patience is indeed a virtue. I am an assistant manager at a bank and my husband works as a opthalmic tech at an eye surgery center. He is also going to a local university to earn a management degree. I had the privilege of graduating myself from an outstanding church school in 2005 with a degree in Sociology, and I will never forget the life lessons I learned while I was there! Those teaching moments truly changed me. In my spare time, I love to hang out and take walks with my husband, read a good book, clean my house, bake, watch movies and be with friends and family. I have two brothers who married wonderful, loving women and I have a lovely family-in-law myself! I love the color pink and I love to travel around the beautiful inland northwest on road trips with my husband! I'm always looking for another adventure we can share together. We someday hope to live closer to the ocean in Washington or Oregon, and be able to enjoy those beauties every day. I look forward to learning and growing in the Gospel with my husband by my side.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I grew up in a loving household where the Gospel was truly our lives. My father was born and raised in the Church, but my mother was converted and baptized when she was 22 years old. Actually, my dad is the one who taught my mom while he was serving on his mission for the church. They were married shortly after my dad returned from his mission and they then had 3 children in the next 4 years. My parents were and still are in inspiration to me. They are loving, devout people who still have a very playful and silly side. I was baptized when I was eight years old and have since been active in the church. While in college I was privileged to be in leadership positions in our women's organization, and from those experiences, I learned so much about myself and what I have the potential to do. After college, I attended a singles ward in my area and was once again called into a leadership position. And again, I learned so much about serving and loving those around me. I know the Lord placed me in those situations for me to grow more confident and vocal about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. From those experiences, my testimony of the Church has multiplied ten fold and I enjoy sharing the great news with those around me. Since I have been married, my husband and I have had the opportunity to teach in the children's organization and that has opened our eyes to many different and exciting ways to learn and teach the Gospel. It is a joy to know that we are helping God's children learn about Him. I truly love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I will never stray from it. Although things happen in life that try and test me, I know I have a loving Father in Heaven who is waiting there to help me and lift me up. I take comfort in the fact that I believe that I AM NEVER ALONE.

How I live my faith

Although I am not a perfect person, I know that the assignments that I have done in the Church have molded and shaped me into who I am today. And I know that I am constantly in need of re-shaping. At the current time, my husband and I teach the six and seven year olds in the children's organization in our ward. We have been in this ward ever since we have been married and we still are getting to know people. There are always new faces to know and relationships to have. We are hoping to become a little more active in the ward activities in the future. Right now, our lives are centered on the children in our class. They are all so special and such sweet spirits. I have personally seen how children can be our biggest teachers in life. Although they can sometimes be very active and unruly, I am truly touched by their spirit of love and acceptance. Some of them are wise beyond their years and I see every Sunday, that the most choice spirits were indeed held back for these last days! What an inspiration for us all!
