Hi I'm Kimber

I'm a hippie who grew up at the beach in California and now I'm kickin' it in the mountains of Idaho and Wyoming. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a life long soccer player and skier, and as of high school I've picked up lacrosse. I love tennis, but I'm horrible at it. I'm slowly mastering fly-fishing and my boyfriend is determined to teach me to mountain bike. One of my favorite things to do is kayak down the lazy Teton River. I'm looking forward to backpacking the entire John Muir Trail in the Sierra Nevadas and attending graduate school in Australia. I also have an enormous affinity for books; and in my spare time I create them. Not writing - binding. I'm a book artist. Within a year I'll be graduating from college with a BA in Humanities. I've lived in Utah, eastern Idaho, southern California, northern Arizona, and Vienna, Austria. I speak mediocre German.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a home where one parent was a member of the LDS church and the other was not. Part of the deal when my parents got married though was that their kids had to be raised in the Mormon religion. So here I am. I've been attending services every Sunday since I was in the womb. At the age of eight, as is tradition, I was officially baptized into the church. Though my father has genuinely supported my mother's desire to raise their children as good Christians throughout their 20+ years of marriage, the fact that he is not a baptized member of her congregation has definitely been a defining facet of my life. My father has questioned my every move within my religion. Not to dissuade me, but to ensure that I knew why I personally was making those choices. He taught me to be educated in all things, to question everything, and to never move forward until I had a solid understanding. My personal conversion of the heart took place a few years back. God sent an undeniable sign into my heart that he IS; and ever since I have been steadily working towards understanding how He wants us to live our lives. It's slow going, but the way my heart has been changed so far is a small miracle within itself.

How I live my faith

Right now I'm reading the New Testament for the first time (just a chapter a day - life is busy). I love it and the conception I had of Christ is being completely altered. I attend church every Sunday and I sing in the choir. Half the reason I go to church is just to sing and praise the Lord. The other reason I go is to learn. I'm also taking a religious class here at school that is all about self growth and challenging yourself to be better. As a result of that class I've been doing some very serious study and prayer about certain aspects of my life, and am slowly trying to bring them into line with the Lord's plan.
