Hi I'm Karyl Lee Rodabough

I grew up in Utah and still live here. I've raised 6 children and love genealogy & Family History. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After raising a family of 6 children I started working as a computer lab tech and learned that computers are my 'thing'! My husband died at the young age of 61 and that left me with many hours of aloneness. After searching to find where I belonged, I was asked to serve a Family History Mission. My life has been enriched and blessed by my newfound interest in genealogy, research, and Family History. In 2006 I received a call to serve in the Slovenia/Croatia Mission setting up Family History Libraries for the special people in Eastern Europe. My 'alone' hours are now filled to overflowing with searching, documenting, and serving those who are longing to be found. My immediate family now numbers over 40 so I continue to be Grandma & Great-Grandma. We love to get together once a month for Family Dinners and enjoy all holiday opportunities we can. My other special loves are 4-wheeling, waterskiing, traveling, sewing, and playing games with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always known that what I was taught as a child was true. Sometimes through my life I have tried it, testing it against the "glitz" of the world, but only when I am living the gospel of Jesus Christ have I found peace and true happiness. I know that all of my experiences here on earth are intended to test me, to help me see who I am and what my potential can be. All of life's experiences will not be happy ones, like loosing my Sweetheart and having to live alone; but if I stop, if I sit down and quit, if I get angry with God and refuse to strive, I fail "my" test. Father in Heaven has a purpose for all things, we must believe him and trust him. I have been blessed with a spiritual witness of the truthfulness of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) and the gospel message it brings. I have the witness and testimonies of my faithful ancestors to strengthen me and the example of goodly parents and a faithful Husband to keep me in the right way. Can I even think to ignore them? How ungrateful I would be! No! It is my resolve to continue to walk the path, repenting, serving, and enduring until Heavenly Father says I am finished. I AM a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I hope I am living my faith every day of my life by being an example of what the Savior would choose to say or do. It's a challenge to remember when life gets frustrating and hectic. My inclination is to judge and blame and I really don't want those attributes as part of my eternal character. Living my faith is so very important to me and I need the Savior's help every day. My present callings include teaching the 14-16 year olds in Sunday School, a wonderful and fun experience. As I prepare and present the gospel to them my testimony of those principles also grows. I am a Visiting Teacher with three fun ladies to visit every month with my assigned companion. I volunteer at the Family History Library helping and assisting those who come there to find their family members in the wonderful data bases offered there. One calling I have had for almost 11 years now is that of Webmaster for our Ward Family. I am also a Ward Family History Consultant with the responsibility to work with my immediate neighbor's in their Family History efforts.
