About . . .


Hi, I'm Kathy! Some of the things that bring me cheer are: spending time with friends and family, serving in the temple, traveling, cooking, shopping (I may have a little shoe obsession), and doing my blog.

My Family

I have been married 38 years to my high school sweetheart! I'm a mom of 5 wonderful kids - 4 daughters and 1 son, 3 incredible sons-in-law and an amazing daughter-in-law. I am now a grandma of eight! I have three beautiful granddaughters and five adorable little grandsons who are the light of my life! They bring me so much joy and happiness! I also include as part of my family some "adopted" children who add to my life immeasurably! I feel so blessed to have the family I do!

My Faith

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Because of that, my faith brightens my life every day! I am grateful for the knowledge that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and a Savior whose example shows me how to live. Their perfect plan has sustained me through many trials, especially the loss of my oldest daughter and recently my sweet son-in-law. I am comforted by knowledge that families are forever!

"Imagine the impact we can have as hundreds of thousands and millions of members of the Lord’s restored Church contribute in seemingly small ways to the rising floodwaters. May our many small, individual efforts produce a steady rainfall of righteousness and truth that gradually swells a multitude of streams and rivers—and ultimately becomes a flood that sweeps the earth. 'Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great' (D&C 64:33)."
