Hi I'm Karen

I grew up in Scotland. I'm a happy full time Mum. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay at home Mum and as challenging as it can be, I love the time it gives me to care for my 3 beautiful children and our home. When I do get some spare time I love to read and do all things creative such as baking treats to share with friends; sewing a quilt for my daughter; making junk models and sticky paint pictures. Before finishing work to raise a family, I had the privilege of working with children with Autism, a challenging career that taught me so much about children and the joy that is found in the simplest achievement. I also served a full time mission for my Church which strengthened my testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and gave me so many wonderful experiences.

Why I am a Mormon

Born into the Mormon faith, I knew when I was a teenager that it was time to truly know for myself if this was God's restored gospel upon the earth. There is a promise in the Book of Mormon that is for all of us, it says that if we desire to know if these things are true then all we have to do is pray and ask and that through the Holy Ghost we will know the truth of these things. I made the choice to study the scriptures and then to kneel in prayer and ask! I know that through that experience and countless others that this is indeed God's true church and gospel upon the earth today. Having that knowledge doesn't make the challenges in life any easier, what it does do is give me perspective and an absolute assurance that things will work out.

How I live my faith

I organise the hymns and music for my local church; I also look after our Family Choir which welcomes anyone of all ages with a desire to sing. I love looking after the music and sharing the joy that comes from singing praises. I also watch over the children's organisation in our local units; another opportunity to work with children and to be blessed by their simple faith and testimonies. Any opportunity to serve may be daunting but always brings such blessings and experiences.
