Hi I'm Kimberly Dawn

About Me

I am an instructional designer and gerontologist. I enjoy reading classic literature, cleaning my apartment, and cooking. I look forward to eventually finishing school and hope to be able to use my powers for good. 

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is only through Jesus Christ, and the doctrines set forth in His church, that I have been able to find the happiness and connectedness that He wants all of us to have. By studying His teachings and faithfully obeying His commandments, I am able to draw nearer to Him, inspiring me to become better and motivating me to be a better friend to those around me. Best yet, when times of trial, sorrow, and disappointment come (because they do!), membership in His church provides me resources to strengthen my faith and find solace in those who are also trying to follow Him.

How I live my faith

My faith extends so far beyond weekly Sunday services. Part of being Mormon is trying to be Christlike in all we do: being kind, helpful, good natured, patient, and honest. My responsibilities within my local church group help me to learn to be more Christlike. I help plan weekly activities and teach mini-lessons. I also get to visit other church members to make sure their needs are met and help them feel the love that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for them.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Kimberly Dawn
For me, faith in Jesus Christ increases from doing two things. First, in order to believe in Christ and trust in His teachings, I have had to study His life and the lessons He taught. As I have come to better understand who Jesus Christ is, what He did, and what He wants for us, my trust in Him and hope for the future grows. Second, and almost more importantly, I have to work to be the kind of person that He was. When I am trying to live as He lived and treat others the way He would have treated them, my faith in Him grows. Show more Show less

What is the Law of Chastity?

Kimberly Dawn
The Law of Chastity is a commandment from Jesus Christ regarding the appropriate expression of sexual intimacy and relations. Our ability to bring forth life through sexual relations is sacred and a small portion of the creative capabilities that God possesses. Sexual intimacy is also closely tied to our own feelings of worth and our ability to bond with and express love to our spouse. Because of its sacred and highly emotional nature, sex is exercised to our utmost benefit when we are joined with a spouse, a joint partner in love and in the development of a new family unit. The Law of Chastity guards against the misuse of sex and the exploitation of others for sexual gratification, both within marriage and without. Show more Show less
