Hi I'm Kimberly Hansen

I am a mother of five children and I am a registered nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have three older sisters. My mom taught me how to cook by teaching 4-h classes, a community education program. She instilled in me the importance of preserving food for my family. When I got married, I started canning on my own and continue to do so for our family today. I love going down to my storage room and seeing the bottles filled on the shelf. I have five children, two of which are currently serving missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love hearing from them each week, it is a highlight of my week. My family is quickly growing up and not needing me as much as they used to when they were little. When I got married I had no idea that we would have a backyard farm, couple of cows, chickens and turkeys. My husband didn't grow up on a farm and neither did I. We have it for our children, to help give them responsibility of feeding and taking care of them. It also helps them understand where their food really comes from. We grow a big garden each year and they help with that as well. I am a registered nurse and work at a nearby hospital a couple of days a week. I love working with people and helping them with their needs.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that were already members of the church. I was taught since I was little to pray and to

How I live my faith

I visit three ladies in my area often and make sure they are doing well. I also work with many women that are in charge of 600+ children from the age 18 months to 12 years. These women teach gospel principles in word and in song. They teach these children about The Savior, His life and His mission. They only have about two hours on Sunday to do this, so there is a lot of planning involved to help all the children to understand each topic and principle. I help organize baptisms for the youth in our area

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Kimberly Hansen
A mission is not a requirement. Heavenly Father has given us our agency, we are free to choose whether we go on a mission. Most choose to go on a mission to share what they know and help others have the joy that they have in their lives that comes from being a member of the church. Even though I haven't been called on a mission, I enjoy sharing my testimony with my family and friends. Show more Show less
