Hi I'm Karen

I was born & raised in California. I love children of any age. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read & enjoy working in the garden. I am retired but like to be busy helping others. In my working years, I worked in retail and in various office positions.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a part of the Church my entire life, it was a wonderful happy place to be with my family. I enjoyed the music & lessons that taught me about Jesus as a child. I have always felt his love for me & others. As a youth in the Church, I enjoyed many wholesome & uplifting activities. Girls Camp was especially fun & inspirational. All our lessons continued to focus on the Savior, his Atonement, his teachings, His love for us & his example of service. As an adult, I had to gain my own witness to know if the Church was true; if Joseph Smith was a prophet; and that the Church was restored. Wanting to know for myself, I gained that knowledge by reading the Book of Mormon. It is all true!! It is a wonderful book that I rely on for hope, understanding & a witness of Jesus Christ. I wish everyone could have the knowledge that I have about the Gospel of Jesus Christ in it's full & complete purpose.

How I live my faith

Sunday is my favorite day of the week. I enjoy attending church & studying the life of Christ. I grew up in the Church but received a personal testimony in my 30s after I read the Book of Mormon cover to cover. As a youth, I believed the things I was taught in Church, but one day I realized I needed to know. After reading the Book of Mormon, I knew it was true & divinely inspired. I knew that Joseph Smith was indeed a Prophet. Each time I reread this wonderful book, I find more inspiration & hope that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings to everyone that reads it with an open heart. I have had many opportunities to serve at church. I currently serve in the Nursery & enjoy these precious children of God. I have had the blessing of serving the needy in a Community Food Bank. I try to follow the Savior's example of service & love.
