Hi I'm Kim

I love music and enjoying the outdoors. I hope to become a teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently married and graduated with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I hope to get a teaching job soon! I love to spend time with my husband and friends by going hiking, cooking, watching movies, playing games, and attending many other things in the community. I love to sing and play my guitar, violin, and ukulele. I am a big reader; fantasy and futuristic novels are my favorites. I hope to someday write a novel, and I want to learn how to paint.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the principles the LDS Church teaches brings me peace and happiness, and I believe that God is the head of it. I grew up as a Mormon. I read the Book of Mormon on my own during my late elementary school years, and have continued to read it. When I read it, I feel closer to Jesus Christ, and I feel that it is true. I have prayed about it many times, and each time I feel peace from the Holy Ghost that it is true. I also have a testimony that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. He defended this Church his entire life, never denying the truthfulness of it, and he became a martyr for it and for Jesus Christ. I believe that he saw God the Father and Jesus Christ, and that They restored this gospel through him. Because I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church of God. I am so grateful to have the knowledge of what I believe is the true and complete gospel of Jesus Christ. I am so grateful that I have been baptized into this church and to have the knowledge that Jesus Christ is my Savior and can make me clean from my mistakes. I am so grateful that I can go to the temple to learn more about God's plan for us and to prepare to meet Him face to face after I die. I am so grateful that I was able to get married to my sweetheart in the temple, and to know that because of it, we can be married together forever, even after this life, as we stay faithful to the gospel of Jesus Christ. I truly believe this, which makes it so worth it to keep God's standards and commandments that I have learned growing up as a Mormon.

How I live my faith

My husband and I attend Sacrament Meeting each Sunday where we are able to listen to other church members bear their testimonies and give talks on gospel-related topics. We also get to partake of the Sacrament every week, which renews our covenants we made with God when we were baptized. During this time, I like to think about how I can better keep the covenants I made to take Christ's name upon me (or do what He would do), to keep His commandments, and to always remember Him. I have a calling from my LDS Bishop to serve in the Nursery with my husband every week as well. So after Sacrament Meeting, we take care of the children 18 months to 2 years while their parents attend their other meetings. It makes me happy to be able to be of service to parents of young children. During Nursery, we have a short lesson, singing time, play time, and snack time. I also serve in the LDS Church's women's organization, called The Relief Society. I have a companion and we are assigned to visit and watch over two or three other women each month. This helps us gain cherished friendships and serve others when they are in need. I also am part of a Relief Society committee that plans fun and spiritual activities for the women every couple months.
