Kay's Kaleidoscope - Just the Beginning . . .

I love the diversity of color in a kaleidoscope - constantly changing - never the same twice - always beautiful - just like people & life if we choose to view them that way.

There are a lot of things in my life that I love and want to share on my blog.

Since I've worked in the LDS Book Industry for over 18 years, I love books - so when I find ones I like, I'll share.

I love to cook and my husband redid my kitchen last year - here's a picture during the redo - it's more fun to cook - so when I try new recipes that I like, I'll share.

I love to teach. I currently teach the Gospel Doctrine Sunday School Class at church. This year we are studying the Old Testament - so as I discover, I'll share.

I love the Temple & studying the scriptures - so when I get new insights that are appropriate to share or discover fun ways to get into the scriptures, I'll share.

I love doing Genealogy. My Grandma Johnson got me started with my first Book of Remembrance when she came to visit after my sister, Judi, was born. I was 10. I love searching for relatives - especially in the graveyards :O) - so as I discover new tips or fun stories, I'll share.

"... but if ye are prepared, ye shall not fear." Doctrine & Covenants (D&C) 38:30. As I work on getting myself & my family better prepared and find useful ideas, I'll share.

I love my husband, Don. We've been married for almost 32 years. He is the best Heating & Air Conditioning Mechanic in the world - you may say I'm biased and you're right! But he is always trying to help his clients save money and do things themselves - so sometimes I may get him to share.

Family is everything and mine loves to be together. My parents built a house "Hares at Last" on the Outer Banks in Corolla, NC and we love going there. So as we do fun things that strengthen relationships and build memories, I'll share.

There will always be more because life is always changing - meeting new people - bringing new experiences - discovering new things to love. Join me on my "Kaleidoscope" journey.
