Hi I'm Karen

I am a Mormon currently living in Utah. I am a retired Elementary teacher. I will soon leave on a Senior Mission to Canada.

About Me

I am a mother of five daughters. They are all married and I now have 13 grandchildren. I love to teach, play the piano, and be with my family. I taught elementary school for 26 years. My husband was a seminary and institute teacher. We have served as ordinance workers in the temple and were released after we received our call to serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the covenants and promises I am able to make with the Lord under proper authority. I want to live with my family forever and being sealed to my husband and family in the temple are binding upon my worthiness. I strive to be a follower of Christ and live as He lived in kindness and love towards all mankind. It is truly a plan for Happiness in this life and the life to come.

How I live my faith

As a LDS mother and wife my life has centered around my family. My husband and family value the importance of the gospel in our lives for the direction it gives us to make wise and proper choices that will bring happiness. Recently all of my children were in the temple with us as we witnessed the marriage of our youngest daughter. I have five daughters and they have all married in the temple. I believe in Families can be together Forever. I feel the gospel is a wonderful guide for happiness. It provides perspective for kindness, service, and obedience. I have served in many capacities in my ward and stake that have allowed me the opportunity to work with children, and adults of all ages. I currently serve as the Music Chairman of our ward which allows me to lead the music in sacrament meeting, select special musical numbers, and play the piano for the children in primary. I also serve as a visiting teacher.
