Hi, welcome to my blog. In this world we are learning and growing. Nobody is perfect and that is why we are here. On our life's journey we are asked to try our best. We are asked to pattern our lives after the Savior, love one another and serve each other. It is only through the atonement and resurrection of Christ that we can reach perfection. I would love for this blog to be a place that we can share tips to help each other on our journey.
My name is Kim, I am a stay at home mom and wife. Having three energetic little boys keeps me constantly on my toes. I still try to find time though to pursue some of the things I like to do. Some of my hobbies include:
Crafting (Digi Scrap-booking, paper crafts, sewing, needle work, crocheting(beginner), kids crafts, etc), the list could go on and on, I love to try out new ways of crafting!
Cooking (I do enjoy to cook, sometimes anyways. I love to take recipes and change them up a little bit. A lot of times in hopes of making them a little bit healthier.)
Poetry (I enjoy writing poems, many family members have been recipients of these poems. I took a creative writing class when I was in high school, which sparked the interest.)
Drawing (I enjoy drawing. I began at a young age looking at pictures of horses and trying to draw them. I have taken an online class on the basics and would love to learn more.)
Piano (I am not the best and I probably should have taken more lessons, but I do love to sit down and play some music. My favorite is LDS church music!)
Exercise and Being Active (Okay, so this is one that me and my husband both enjoy. Do not be surprised if you see us walking or riding our bikes around miles away from home. I am constantly trying new exercises and reading about how to be healthy.)
Service (This includes fulfilling any callings I might have in my church. I think if a person truly has a desire to be happy, then they need to serve others. A lot of my post center around my callings in the church. I love to come up with engaging ways to share and learn about the gospel.)
Camping (This is an oldy and a newby. Growing up my family was camping or fishing every weekend. Recently, my own little family has taken the hobby up. I love to post about our little family journeys.)
Gardening (I love flowers!! My yard is full of all kinds of different plants. I am new to vegetable gardening and have enjoyed it and hope to try out a new plant each year in my garden)
MOM (This is who I am to my kiddos! I love being there in my kids lives, being to their sporting events, helping out at their school, and just being their for them. Yes, being a mom can be hard at times. I am learning as I go. This is another part of the journey that at times I may share, the crazy life of being a mom.)
How did I get into doing crafts?
My mom has sewed and crochet since I was born. She made some of our clothes and a lot of her home decor. She tried to get me into sewing when I was little and I refused (totally regretting it now). She also always had fun stuff for us to do, whether it be stuff with beads, leather work or helping make homemade gifts. My Nana (mom's mom), I would say is pretty crafty. She would always get me little craft projects to do. I think that is maybe what started my interest. I also remember being at my other grandma's and her always having a crochet blanket project she was working on. She taught me how to finger crochet a little rope. I love trying out new ways to craft. There is just something about sitting down and designing or creating an object and then seeing the finished piece.
More about me:
I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints which has helped me throughout my life's journey. It is who makes me, me. The choices I make, the person I am is centered around my belief that I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father and I have a strong desire to follow his plan. I am so grateful for the callings I have been able to serve in, it has helped further my knowledge, build skills and has strengthened my testimony. It seems like as soon as I graduated high school, I was called to serve in primary. I served in primary for probably 15 years either as a primary teacher, activity days leader, primary presidency member or primary president. I loved serving those cute children of God, who have amazing testimonies and are so loving. Currently, I get to serve the Young Women in our ward, they are amazing and help me learn and grow daily. Plus it's fun to have some girl time and do some girly thing! Other callings I've held are Relief Society Home Family and Enrichment committee member and visiting teacher. I love to share my experience that my callings have brought into my life. I am excited to be able to share with you some of my thoughts and ideas and would love to hear yours also, so we can try to help each other on our "Journey to Perfection".
