In the SpotlightKimber Dameron and her family are new members of the Ward. Kimber feels that her most important work is that of a wife and a mother. Kimber also works as a Paramedic, with the Rexburg Fire Department and teaching at BYU-Idaho. She also works as a flight paramedic in Idaho Falls. In her work Kimber has seen many people go through all types of trials. She has seen people in the many different stages of grief. And during times of crisis, Kimber has watched as people let all the unimportant things melt away from their minds as they realize that what is important is their family and their faith. In D&C 24:8 we are reminded “Be patient in afflictions, for thou shalt have many; but endure them, for, lo, I am with thee, even unto the end of thy days.”
Kimber has learned that she needs to prepare herself spiritually before going to work. She will do this by praying, reading scriptures and by listening to podcasts of programs from the Mormon Channel. Kimber testifies that with preparation, staying close to the Lord and doing our part, we can receive help in our trials.
