Hi I'm Kathy

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Southern California. I am a wife and mother of 9, grandmother of 8, I am self employed. I am happy!

About Me

I am married to my second husband, David. Together we have 9 children. We are so blessed with great children. I am a grandmother of 8 beautiful children. I am now an empty-nester and am enjoying the adventure of being alone with my husband for the first time in our life. We are having great fun. I am a musician. I play the piano and organ. I lead the choir at church. I am an Independent Consultant for Shelf Reliance. I made the decision to do this to help people become prepared for whatever difficulties may arise in their lives. I have had my share of trials in life including divorce and surviving cancer. I enjoy camping, gardening, taking care of my home and spending time with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so excited to be a Mormon! My parents converted to the church when I was 11 years old. I remember their joy. I remember standing around the baptismal font and seeing them cry with tears of joy. I am Mormon because nothing else makes sense! I have a testimony of Jesus Christ. I love Him! I know with all certainty that the original organization that Jesus Christ established in the meridian of time has been reorganized and restored to the earth as promised in Ephesians and other scriptures from the holy prophets. I want to have the highest and surest spiritual influence possible in my life, and this is the only way I have found to allow this in my life. I have peace, I have assurance, I have strength in and through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am grateful in these difficult times to know we are once again led by a prophet of God. Of course God would speak to us through a prophet, he always has! I have continual guidance through our prophet which I depend on to make sure I can all things so I can return back to my Father in Heaven. That is my ultimate goal! I want to live with Him with my famly forever.

How I live my faith

I try hard to live my faith daily. I want my belief and faith in Jesus Christ to direct all my choices in life. My faith has certainly shaped how I have mothered and taught my children. It also helps me choose easily which direction to go givent he difficult times we face and temptations that are every more present in the world today. Aligning my life with the Savior helps me stay morally clean and worthy of the influence of the Holy Ghost. I strive to be more like my Savior. I want to emulate his ways by living and loving the way he did. I have always served musically in the church, from accompanying the children in Primary to playing the organ in church services. I am currently the Ward Music Director which places me in charge of the choir. I love leading the choir! I have enjoyed other callings including activities chairman, food storage specialist and Sunday School teach for 8 year old children.
