Hi I'm Kimberli

I live in the country with my sweetheart and our six children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to my best friend, Harold, and we have six wonderful children. We live in the country on little parcel of land raising kids, chickens and a cow. My work is the one for which all others exist; I'm a homemaker. It's the best job in the world! I love making our home comfortable and a haven from the stresses of school and life in general. I'm a good cook and love to feed the people I love. I also love words, both reading them and painting pictures with them. I'm a writer. In the winter I love to cross country ski and in the summer I love being in the mountains. I live a simple life, but I love it.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon, so in some ways you might say that I became one by default. But, like everyone, as I grew I had my own questions and came to love this faith for myself. When I was seventeen I went through a crisis of faith. I wasn't sure if what I'd been taught all my life was really true. I had been taught that I could know for myself and so I studied, prayed and talked to people I trusted. I came to know for myself that what my parents had taught me was true. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and had the opportunity to share that with others as missionary. Now I teach my children the things I learned as a child. I have lived this faith my whole life and it has been a sweet life. I am happy and content. Understanding that God is my Heavenly Father and that Jesus Christ is his son brings me peace. When hard times have come into my life I've known where to turn. As I see horrible things happening in the world or as I experience my own hard times my faith gives me hope.

How I live my faith

The most important thing I do to live my faith is the work of mothering. Helping my children become happy, healthy, productive adults in the greatest thing I can do for society. I help out in their schools and work to make our community a great place for children to grow up. When we first moved here I worked with the city council to replace the dangerous play equipment in the park with some that was safer and more fun for the children. It was my first experience seeing how one person could make a difference. At church I work with the women, planning events, visiting them and assessing if they have needs and teaching them. I have also worked with the children and youth.
