Hi I'm Karen

I am a Midwestern woman who loves to cook,garden, and sew. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being a homemaker preparing good meals for my husband and I to enjoy. Looking for new recipes is a favorite pastime, and well as gardening. For the past 2 years I have enjoyed having a garden at our local Community Garden. Having the opportunity to study any interest that I might have is a passion of mine

Why I am a Mormon

After seeking answers in the scriptures I began to feel that there was more to be revealed to us, that the Bible wasn't the only message left by Our Heavenly Father. So one evening I ask the Lord to let me know if there was more to this life than what I am reading in the New Testament. Then 3 days later a set of Missionaries knocked in my door.....

How I live my faith

By reading the scriptures trying to do this daily, and saying my prayers. Trying to remember to be in the world not of the world.

What is being a Mormon like?

Karen
I have found being a Mormon one of the most solidifying experiences of my life. Through my daily life I am able to have a personal relationship with Our Lord in prayer, study, and serving my fellow man. Knowing my Heavenly Fathers Plan of Salvation is such a comfort that each one of us is a Spirit Child given a body to experience life. What an amazing God! Show more Show less

Why don’t women hold the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? How do Mormon women lead in the Church?

Karen
Within my Heavenly Father's Plan there is a balance; men hold the priesthood, woman hold motherhood. As a mother in Zion I have experienced many blessings of the priesthood in my personal life. Being a member of the Relief Society I can express my talents with my fellow sisters, with the support of the priesthood at all times. My husband John and I are a sealed couple for time and all eternity! Show more Show less
