Hi I'm Kami

I'm a student's wife and a new mother. I love to read & write, and I love music. I’m a proud American. And I’m a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I met while we were freshmen at BYU and though I kept dating around, I wrote to him while he served a religious mission in Taiwan. Shortly after he returned, we were married in the Salt Lake City temple. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in print journalism, and he is studying chemical engineering. We now have a beautiful new little daughter, and we look forward to having more children. I enjoy learning new skills, because I believe they will enrich my life and my family members’ lives here on Earth and in the next life. Beautiful music and literature especially help me feel close to the Holy Spirit and feel God’s love for me. In addition to singing and playing the piano, I have also taught myself to play the soprano recorder and I have been a member of a local handbell choir for the last few years. While I don’t consider myself an expert at any of these things, practicing both old and new talents has helped me learn new things about myself and about God’s beautiful creations.

Why I am a Mormon

Knowing who God is and that He wants the best for me has uplifted me in times of hardship and has helped me be patient enough to learn the reasons why I’m going through certain difficulties. It also helps me better recognize, enjoy, and show gratitude for my blessings and happy moments. I am happy because I know the purpose of life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith first and foremost through my roles in my family: God said it is not good for man (or woman) to be alone, and He commanded us to multiply and replenish the Earth, so that His other spirit children could also have a chance to come to this life and have the opportunity to learn and progress. The beauty of this arrangement is that my husband and I help each other learn, and while I help my daughter learn more about Heavenly Father, I have learned a great deal as well. I also live my faith by trying my hardest to be a good daughter and daughter-in-law, and a good sister and sister-in-law, and also a good neighbor and friend. I also live my faith by serving in small ways at church, and by being a good citizen.
