Hi I'm Kathy

I'm a wife, I'm a mom, I'm a sister, I'm a daughter, I'm a birthmom, I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a mom. Right now that pretty much sums up who I am. People might think that defining myself as a mom might not be to ambitious but let me tell you it is very ambitious. Being a mom is a lot of work but very rewarding. I love to make my house nice for my family. I love to cook and to take them to their activities. Sure sometimes I go a little crazy but then my son or daughter will tell me they love me or tell me they are grateful for the things I do and right away I am refueled to keep on going. Life is good and I feel blessed to live the life I do.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, at first I was Mormon because my family was Mormon. But over the years I have gained a knowledge for myself that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Gods one and only church here on earth today. Through this process I have learned that the Priesthood spoken of in the Bible has been restored to this earth. I have learned that we must be baptized to return to our Father in Heaven and that it must be done by persons that hold this Priesthood. I have a testimony of The Savior, he takes apon him my sins so that I can be made perfect through him. I believe in the prophet Joseph Smith, and that it was through his efforts and questions that he was able to meet God the Father and Jesus Christ and that he followed their intructions to re-establish Gods church and Priesthood here on the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping in our Stake Primary. I love it for several reasons. First I'm totally blown away by the many women and men that put time and effort into teaching the children about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. To see them give these children love makes me smile! Two I love the children. They are excited to learn and have a lot of love to give. Three, in Primary we learn many basic gospel truths. It's wonderful to be reminded of where we come from and why we are here. That we have a Heavenly Father who loves us and that the Savior came to earth and suffered for our sins so that we may someday return home.

What is faith?

Faith is an action word. You "hope for things that are not seen but are true and must be centered on Jesus Christ." (Bible Dictionary) So how do you show action? The action part of Faith comes in when you follow the Savior. When you follow the Savior you are showing/acting apon Faith. Sometimes people associate Miricales being a result of Faith, but its actually the oppisit. Miricales can confirm ones Faith but often times come after the action of Faith. Show more Show less

What is the Relief Society?

I love being apart of a wonderful womens orginazation called Relief Society. Through Relief Society I have the ability to help my community and quite frankly the world. We do many humanitarian effors but more importantly we help our neighbors. I have so many opertunitys to bring families meals and confort in times of need. Through the Relief Society I am also able to associate with women of other faiths and in a combined effort we can help so many. Show more Show less
