Hi I'm Karen S. Lybarger

HI my name is Karen and I got baptized April 26, 2014, I live in Taylorville, IL and I grew up there & have lived her all my life

About Me

I am a new member to the church, I recently started in Jan of 2014. I am a mother of 4 and grandmother of 14 grandchildren. I raised my children most of their lives by myself on very little income. I have struggled most of my life to get by financially. I have went to college in the past. I use to work taking care of the elderly in their homes but due to my health I can not work anymore. I got my CNA certificate in 2011 and only worked until August of 2013.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon because my daughter has been one for many years and I went to see if I like it, and I did so I went. I am a convert from a Baptist church. I enjoy going to the church but it seems as though they worship Joseph Smith more then they do God and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday unless I am sick, I am not involved in the church as far as activities go but I do go to the Relief Society get togethers when they have them, and every Sunday I attend the RS meetings.
