Hi I'm Keri

I'm a social worker. I actually believe I'm going to change the world one day. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm into global social justice, improvised music, nature, and I have ample amounts of curiosity.

Why I am a Mormon

When I do what God wants, I feel good. It's a bit of an experiment trying to understand how to live this life. My findings are that living as Christ would makes me happy. The teachings of this church bring me relief, peace, and strength as a person. I'm glad that I believe that people can change and Christ can help. When I think about the long term perspective I've gained from being a member of this church, I feel wise and I feel hope. Good things born from good teachings.

How I live my faith

I help organize and run activities for women in my neighborhood church community. I love the friends I've made in this church. There is no other network like it!

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Keri
This is something I've had to think about a lot. I'm not married myself. Sometimes its hard to believe that two people who are different and flawed could ever make a marriage work. I've spent a good portion of the last 10 years is total awe at people who get married with such sure smiles on their faces. It didn't seem to make any sense. Then one day I realized I was leaving someone out of the equation. I saw that I needed to have faith in the redeeming power of Christ. He has the ability to compensate for the hard, unfair, frustrating, and heart breaking issues people face in marriages. Christ helps to create fewer gaps. I'm really not sure that I could believe in marriage under any other circumstances. I can say that I do believe in a God that wants my family to succeed and he created a way that this could happen despite people being just people. Show more Show less
