Hi I'm Kerami

I love marching band. I live on the beach. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music and sports! I can teach myself to play just about any instrument and I was in marching band through college...which means I also LOVE football! I am really active and you can usually find me on the beach trying to learn to surf or body boarding. I enjoy snow sports like skiing and sledding. I like to read novels and write music. I recently rebuilt my tv and fixed my car. I've been a librarian and a PE teacher. Mostly, I guess I'm just a jack of all trades. I work hard and I love to play hard!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy. Don't get me wrong, I've had some serious struggles. I've recently been very sick and had to undergo an emergency surgery and I often wondered why I was having to deal with something like that. But at the end of the day, I knew that everything would be alright. My faith allows me to not fear death or pain, because I know those things are only momentary. The lifestyle that I have embraced as a member of this church keeps me strong, close to my family, and gives me the ability to choose the life I want for myself. I don't have to be a slave to addictions. I don't have to wonder how I'll survive a tragedy. My life will still be difficult, just like everyone else, but I know there is a purpose behind every trial and a lesson in every triumph. I'm a Mormon because it's true. It's the gospel of Jesus Christ on the Earth and it helps me to live as He would want me to.

How I live my faith

Having only recently moved to the area, I'm trying to meet lots of new people and get involved in both the church and the community. Previously, I've taught Sunday classes to the teenage girls. I've also taught the 3 and 4 year olds. I've been in charge of planning local and regional activities and dances for the young singles in my area. For now, I'm happy trying to meet others and learn from them about the area and of course, the surf!
