Hi I'm Karen Smith

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a parent and a grandparent. I taught school for nearly 30 years. Now I'm retired and like to garden, help at school, and spend time with my grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints all of my life. My mother was a member but my father was not. My sisters and I attended meetings often without our parents. I hoped and prayed that my father would join the Church and that we could go to church as a family. He listened to the missionaries and ward members for many years. When I was 18, my father was baptized a member of the Church. It was one of the happiest days of my life. I want to follow His gospel because I have seen the difference it made in the way my parents and our family lived our lives. We are kinder, more loving, and more Christlike because we try to follow Christ's teachings.

How I live my faith

I like to volunteer at our local middle school. My husband and I are teaching a class in our Sunday School. We are going on a mission soon.
