Hi I'm Kimberley Taylor

I taught chemistry at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock for 25 years. I am proud to be a "mormon".

About Me

I grew up as a Latter-day Saint in Seattle Washington. I also lived in Everett Kirkland, and Vancouver Washington. As a teenager I left the church for a time to find the truth. I quickly found out that I had been taught the truth throughout my life. I attending Brigham Young University and served a mission to Little Rock, Arkansas. I met my husband on my mission and returned to Little Rock a few years later. We lived in Little Rock for the next 29 years. I taught Chemistry at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. We recently moved to Sun City Arizona to be close to my parents.

Why I am a Mormon

As stated earlier, I grew up as a "mormon". As a teenager, I felt like the only reason I believed in the teachings of the church was because I had been taught that as a youth. I left the church, looking to see what else was out there. It didn't take me long to discover that I had been taught the truth all along. Once I was converted, I wanted to share what I knew with everyone, so went on a mission to Little Rock, Arkansas. I loved the time I spent there and my testimony of the Savior and His gospel continued to grow and flourish. I came to understand that the commandments, that I had always felt were very restrictive, were exactly the opposite. They are there to keep us safe and from the things in life that do restrict us such as drugs, alcohol, tobacco, unsafe sexual practices, and they are there to lead us to happiness in family life. When I see the fruits of the gospel, I am more convinced than ever, that what we have in the church is the way of having peace in a world where peace seems to be lacking. I love the teachings of the prophets, both passed and present, and love the fact that Heavenly Father still leads and guides us in our life, not only as a church, but through personal, private revelation. I love being a "Mormon".

How I live my faith

I currently teach classes in our women's group. This helps me concentrate my learning on the Savior and His example. I also have the opportunity to visit five woman on a monthly basis and bring them a short message each month. I love the opportunity this gives me to really get to know different woman and learn about their life. I am living in this area to be a help to my parents as they get older and am so happy to be here at this time.
