Hi I'm Kylie

I love my family. I love to smile and I do often because the gospel of Jesus Christ is restored to the church today!

About Me

I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in San Diego, California. I love my mission. I get to help others come to know for themselves that the gospel of Jesus Christ is restored to the earth today. I have an amazing family! Ten children with two amazing parents. I am from Idaho, and lived in Tennessee for a while! I am a student at BYU-Idaho studying elementary education. I have a deep love for children and watching them learn! I know without a doubt that Jesus died for us so that we can be clean and live with him again. I know that families will be together forever as we live and follow the commandments of God. I love the Book of Mormon and I get so much direction for my life as I read it. I know God lives and he loves me.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of the Church or Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is amazing to be able to have the Spirit with me at all times. I was baptized when I was 8 years old, but I never really understood what I was doing. A couple years ago I questioned a lot of things about the church and wondered if I really knew for myself that it was true, or if my testimony was based on my parent's beliefs. I prayed and read my scriptures and asked Heavenly Father with a sincere heart if this was the truth. An overwhelming feeling of peace came over me and I absolutely know that this is God's church established here on the earth today. We have a modern-day prophet who leads and guides us as God's mouthpiece today, just as in ancient times. When we let God into our lives, he will help us through every trial or challenge we will have. We must remember that an answer will not come unless we ask for it, with real intent and a sincere heart.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being obedient to what the Lord wants me to do. I go to church every Sunday. I read in my scriptures every day to strengthen my knowledge and testimony. It is so amazing to come and learn each week from our teachers and to feel the spirit. Christ is most important over anything. He has done so much for me and for all of us. We get to use our agency each and every day to become more like him in the small and simple choices we make. The best way that we live our faith is by being obedient to his word and will. Blessings come from being exactly obedient.
