Hi I'm Kathleen.

I'm a Mormon. I'm a retired school psychologist who loves reading, being with my family and serving others.

About Me

I am a retired school psychologist but worked professionally all my adult life. I married later in life and do not have any children of my own. However, throughout my career I worked with children of varying ages. Also, I have many nieces and nephews and my husband has three married children. I enjoy many activites such as reading, indexing and exercising regularly. My interests have led me to read about and view many different cultures and people. Although health issues presently limit my travel, I have enjoyed visiting other countries and experiencing their unique heritage and culture.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I grew up in Utah, my life experiences have taught me to respect everyone. As a child and somewhat into my teenage years, my parents were not active members of the LDS faith. They did, however, send me and my sisters to church services. In addition, I had friends whose families were active and whenever I was in their homes I felt a distinct difference. Family prayer with one of my friend's family was wonderful. I did not understand then that those feelings were the Holy Ghost testifying to me of the truth of what I was experiencing. I have continued to learn and grow in my love for my Savior and Heavely Father. The gospel has been the one constant in my life. It gives me a sense of purpose and meaning to what I do every day. I'm a better person because I know that my life not only has meaning now but eternally.

How I live my faith

I love serving in the church. The opportunity to work together with others makes my life happier and fuller. I presently have the opportunity to serve as a temple worker. In addition, I have an opportunity to serve other women in the church. I love the women that I visit. I also participate in the indexing program. I hope through my services that others' lives will be blessed. The opportunities to serve have also helped me to grow and develop more fully. Doing new and unfamiliar things makes me work and challenges me. I feel more alive and involved when I extend myself in the service of others.
