Hi I'm Kimberly

I grew up Southern California. I am a Grammy winner shower singer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college graduate with a degree in English. Unfortunately, I decided too late in my undergrad that my real calling was to be a teacher. So, it was back to school for me. I am now in school at Brigham Young University working towards getting my teaching license for secondary education. I am a girl just trying to figure out life and how to be the best person I can be.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel gives me hope. Hope that I can live with my family forever. Hope that I can be forgiven of my sins through the Atonement. Hope that no matter what, Heavenly Father loves me. Hope that miracles happen. Hope that I can change for the better. This church gives me the opportunities to become a better person and more like Christ. The standards can be challenging to live, but the rewards that are promised for living them outweigh the difficulties. I have felt the blessings bestowed upon me because of my righteous living. It's worth it. God lives. He sent His son to atone for all men. By Him are all men saved. This church helps me to come closer to Christ and for that I am eternally grateful.

How I live my faith

I look to Christ and His life when I face my own life. Everyday brings new challenges, but as long as I follow the example He has set I can know with a surety that I am doing the right thing. One of my responsibilities in church has been being part of the compassionate services committee. Basically, I am asked to seek out opportunities to serve others in my church. These service opportunities have expanded my vision to see the needs of others beyond the realm of those I worship with. I have recently started carrying soup in my car to hand out to homeless people. The look of joy in their faces matches the joy I feel when I can serve them, however small my action may be. It is humbling to serve all my brothers and sisters and I know that is what Christ would do.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

I know there is a God becaue I can feel his love surround me. He is in the details of my life. It seems unfathomable that some situations can align themselves so perfectly. God's presence and influence are everywhere. He knows us, our struggles, triumphs, weaknesses, strengths and humor. He guides us, through the power of the Holy Ghost, to the situations that will make us better people. His guidence and involvement is all the proof I need to know He is real. I feel His love, almost tangibly, throughout my life. Show more Show less
