Hi I'm Kyla
I am a mother of four young children. I love to read and save money. I especially love photography.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born into the church, both my parents are Mormon, but I continue to be a Mormon because I know that this is the true church. I love the scriptures, including the Book of Mormon, and the councel from our current prophet and appostles. I find guidance and councel from them everyday. I love knowing why I'm here and what I can do to be happy and return to my Father in Heaven. The teachings of the church aren't confusing or mysterious and they teach of love, forgivness, and progression. These are things I want to pass onto my children and they give me comfort in an increasingly scary world.
How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?
When I read the Book of Mormon, I feel the spirit testifying to me of its truthfulness. In the Book of Mormon you can find story after story of people whose lives have been blessed by God and you can read so many testimonies of people who have come to a knowledge of their Father in Heaven. You can see how this knowledge has made them happier, even if their situations are less than desirable. The Book of Mormon also explains why we are here on this Earth and what Heavenly Father's plan for us is. It explains why we needed a Savior and the role Jesus plays in our lives. When I read the Book of Mormon I feel God's love for me. I know that he has not left us alone, that he wants us to be happy and to return to Him. In learning about God, I have come to love Him in a wonderful and very personal way.
How I live my faith
Right now, I am in charge of all youth ages 18 months to 12 years. I help coordinate teachers for their Sunday School classes, I teach them a short lesson every Sunday as group, and I organize an activity for all the kids to participate in once a quarter. I also visit 4 other women in my church once a month to make sure they are doing OK, and share an uplifting message with them.
