Hi I'm Kimberly

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of two, a photographer, a wife, and an aspiring mandolinist, runner, sewer, crafter, etc. I have a tendency to change hobbies quite frequently, mostly because I get bored or see something more interesting. One that has always stayed the same is the photography, which I have a BA in. Currently, I am working on learning to run and become healthy again, which will be a long journey, but well worth it. I finished my first 5k trail run in the Spring of 2012 by walking it, but had a wonderful time. Along with all of these wonderful hobbies I try to do, I also homeschool my oldest son who is 6 and take care of my youngest son who is soon to be 2. My house is never spotless, but it's clean. My food isn't always what they want to eat, but it's edible and nutritious. I work hard as a wife, mother, and multiple subject enthusiast, but it's all worth it.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I grew up in the church, I was baptized at 8 like most who grow up in the church are. I always attended church with my parents and once in college, I continued to do so. At one point during college though, I realized that I didn't really know if the church was true or not because I had never really tried to find out for myself what it was all about. This was at one of the lowest points in my life due to poor choices and I knew what I had to do to fix it; pray, fast, read, ponder, and pray some more. As I read the Book of Mormon and Bible and listened to the words of latter-day prophets, I came to a realization that this was truly something that I wanted for my life. I realized that the more I read, the more I prayed. The more I prayed, the stronger my desire became to learn more. It was a constant cycle that got me to the point of where I needed to be, and that was to know without a doubt that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I finally knew for myself and had a testimony, and this is something I have never forgotten. I continue to live the gospel because I believe that the principles taught in the scriptures, through our prophets, through all aspects of the gospel are true and I want my family to have that same knowledge and the blessings that come with faithful endurance. I know that families are forever through our faithfulness and diligence in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Currently, I work with other members in my area with public relations of the church in the surrounding communities. This has been a very rewarding assignment in the church. I've been able to meet many people in the community and see how many people are really contributing and making a difference to those around them. There are many acts of service being provided by those members and non-members of the church. It's amazing to me to see every day how generous, loving, compassionate, kind, and wonderful these volunteers are. The best part about seeing people serve others is when it brings together all members of the community and makes a large impact on those around them. A little kindess goes a long way. Along with my public relations calling, I also do the newsletter in my local unit, so it allows me to showcase the wonderful progress of our youth, children, and adults and the amazing projects that they are involved in. No matter the assignment or calling the Lord has in store for me, I will always be willing to serve Him.
