Hi I'm Karin

I grew up in California, I work with kids and I love helping others. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm a very fun and outgoing person. I love meeting new people and helping anyone in need. I attended a career high school and I'm currently studying early childhood education in college. I enjoy working with kids and teaching them. I want to receive my masters and become an elementary principal. I like to read and try new things. I enjoy traveling and roller coasters. I love to dance I took dance all four years of high school. I come from a huge family and I love them so much.

Why I am a Mormon

I am mormon because I love what I stand for. I believe in God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. I believe that my Heavenly Father loves me and he cares for me. I was raised in the church my dad served a mission in Mexico. I was always taught to believe in God and be obedient to the commandments. Growing up I always had a testimony of the church and what I believed in. My testimony was based on my parents testimony I didn't really have one of my own. One day when I was 18 I decided to read the Book of Mormon and to really ponder and pray and ask my Heavenly Father if the book was true. I read the introduction and felt a warm peace in my heart I was calm. I knelt down by my bed and prayed with all my might to God and asked if the Book of Mormon was true. I finished my prayer and I felt so peaceful and I cried and that moment I received my answer. I know the Book of Mormon is true. I know my Heavenly Father lives and I know that he knows me and knows the trails I face. I know Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I know that by the power of the Holy Ghost I can feel the love of God. I share with you these things are true and if you just ask and pray you shall receive an answer.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping others in my community and in my church. I volunteer in my community by cleaning the streets, help feed the hungry and help the poor. I volunteer at nursing homes and at food banks. In my church I volunteer with the youth as well with the kids in the nursery. With the youth I help by setting a good example, by organizing activities, and by being a great and trustful leader in camp. In the nursery I help teach the kids, sing, and help clean. In really enjoy helping others it really reflects my faith and the love I have for everyone.
