Hi I'm Karen

I was born and raised in Southern California. I baby the missionaries every chance I get. I love animals & I'm Mormon.

About Me

I am a Mother of 2 children and am happily married for 25 years to my best friend. I love animals and I currently have 4 cats, 1 dog and a snake. I work full time for a property management company and love what I do. My favorite hobby is fishing. I absolutely love to fish, fish, fish!!!!! My current favorite scripture is Matthew 25:40.

Why I am a Mormon

Me and my family were happy but we felt like something was missing in our lives. My mother in law was a convert to the chuch and she sent the missionaries to visit us. We talked with the missionaries and we decided that we wanted to learn more about the church so we started taking the lessons. After the first lesson we knew that this was what was missing in our lives. We took all six lessons and we were baptized as a golden family. The church is not easy and you have to work for it. This was one of the things that appealed to me. I always had a problem with the idea that I could be bad all week, go to church on Sunday and ask for forgiveness and then go out and be bad the next week and so on. When I walk into church I feel like I am walking into my living room. This is important for me.

How I live my faith

My calling in the church is an assistant to the primary chorister. Most of my callings have envolved the children. They have such a sweet spirit and it is wonderful to watch the spirit work through them. I am so grateful for this. I try to remember Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in all that I do. Some days turn out better than others. I believe that our life here on earth is school, we are the students and the scriptures are our text book for this life.
