Hi I'm Kami

I'm a Mormon. I was a single, career woman for most of my life. You might say I've lived my life backwards......

About Me

While I was born in Utah, I have lived outside Utah most of my life. I have pioneer ancestry, but I also consider myself a pioneer because I've done things differently than the women who came before me and were my role models of how to be happy. I was raised in a blended family and my immediate family is a blended family as I became a step-mom in my 40s. I completed graduate school in my mid-20s and built a career in the business world in the area of medical devices. I married late in life and became a first-time mommy even later in life through adoption! I now juggle a part-time, project-based workload and a busy, beautiful toddler that has rocked our world. I still enjoy service opportunities and travel excursions, when I can fit them in!

Why I am a Mormon

While Mormonism is the 'faith of my fathers,' I'm a practicing Mormon because I have a sure belief in my purpose here in life. I find that trying to live a Christ-centered" life helps me continually re-balance the way I spend my time and what I set as priorities and is the real key to happiness. Plus, I've now had so many life experiences where I had inspiration and help beyond my own abilities that I want to share my belief that everyone can have it too.

How I live my faith

While I have held a variety of "jobs" at Church, some of my favorite experiences have been in serving the Youth, specifically the Young Women, Ages 12-18. While we can't always compete with some of the amazing activities there are for young people out there, it's gratifying to plan activities that help them develop their talents, gain confidence to seek inspiration and direction in their own lives.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

I am my husband's companion and he is mine. We have different roles, but are united in our purpose. In our Church we believe that men and women are co-equals in a great enterprise. Mormon women are diverse in every way possible, such as education and circumstance, life skills, marital status, or whether they even have children. But we are united in our desire to bless and influence the lives of others and to develop our own talents, ideas and opinions. I believe that every woman, especially every young woman, should seek a life skill and am supported in that belief by my Church. Show more Show less
