Hi I'm Kayla

My main goal in life is to be happy and to make everyone else happy too! I don't go a day without smiling. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a Junior in high school. I am the oldest sibling of four younger brothers! You would think living in a house full of boys would make me pretty tough, but it hasn't. I have also been blessed and have a sister on the way! The thing I enjoy most is being nice to others. My favorite part of everyday is the ability to give everyone an unlimited amount of compliments! I love the feeling of being able to cheer up a sad friend or put a smile on a random strangers face. There isn't a day where I am not myself. I am a daughter of God and no one can change who I am so I do not go a day where I am not myself! I love my Heavenly Father for the blessings he has given me and in return help as much as I can on Earth to do my part. I love helping out with leadership positions and serving others. I love giving church talks and bearing my testimony because it gives me a chance to act as an instrument in the hands of God.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints. Having a knowledge of the gospel has blessed my life in so many unthinkable ways! I am a Mormon because being a member of this church is like being wrapped in a bubble of safety. I am able to follow several sets of standards given to me by Heavenly Father to protect me and save me from the evil temptations of everyday life. The gospel has saved my life on multiple occasions and has helped me understand my purpose here on Earth and the tremendous amounts of reasons to live! The church has greatly strengthened my family in times of hardship and heavy tribulation. By attending church every Sunday and maintaining the spirit in our home my family and I are able to happily love and be there for one another. We are each others best friends! By being raised in a church and home with so much love it has made it easier for me to love my neighbors and others! I love being able to have the spirit with me when I am worthy and the ability to share it with others because I have extended knowledge from seminary and Sunday school. By attending seminary everyday before school I am able to face every day and challenge with an open mind and a healthy and happy attitude! I love how happy the church makes me and the knowledge that I will live with my family and friends forever. This knowledge gives me the strength to overcome challenges so one day I can live with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and all my other friends and family again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping others and being an example to the youth around me. Being a youth in high school I face many challenges and temptations in everyday life. I try my best to go around school ignoring the vile and unclean things that are said and done and instead add happiness to the atmosphere. The thing I like to receive most is love and the things I like to give out most are compliments! By being the girl who goes around school with a smile on her face everyday and giving encouraging messages to others, I am able to be an example of the church and interest others in a better way of living and a knowledge of my Heavenly Father's plan. I like being the girl who is friends with everyone because I am able to share my religion and what I believe in with everyone around me. Not only do I try to be a peacemaker at school but I also like to be a peacemaker at home too. I have four little brothers and sometimes our home can be chaotic. But by being an example to my little brothers I am able to show them that we need to be as much like Jesus as we can and in that we are able to have the spirit in our home. I am so grateful for the gospel in my life and I am so grateful that I can live everyday knowing that I am a member of the true and restored church of Jesus Christ. I love to share my testimony as much as I can and I practically beg my church leaders the give me church talks because I love sharing the gospel with others. I like being able to have friends from church that have the same standards as me and we can share the gospel together. I cannot wait to raise my family in the church and be able to live with my Heavenly Father and elder brother Jesus Christ again. I look forward to meeting all my ancestors and being able to live with them forever in celestial glory. I enjoy living my life everyday as if it were the last and I enjoy living it as though I could meet Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ whenever they are ready for me!
