Hi I'm Kim

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student studying mechanical engineering. I want to go into bio-medical applications. I love doing anything outside: running, hiking, rock climbing, backpacking, kayaking, running triathlons. I am the oldest of 7 kids and I love my family more than anything.  I'm also very interested in engineering humanitarian work and recently traveled to Peru to implement humanitarian projects we designed, including ovens and water filters. I also traveled to Tonga to help set up a prosthetic clinic for the people there. I loved the people I met in both places and learned so much from them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the blessings the gospel offers. When we live righteously, God promises us that we can live with Him and with our families forever--there is nothing that I want more. I have also seen the blessings of the gospel in my daily life in countless ways--I know God is watching over me and those I love because He is our Father in Heaven. I have come to know all of these things gradually as I have prayed to Him and felt of His love. The biggest thing that helped me to know The Church of Jesus Christ, or Mormon Church, is true is reading the Book of Mormon. I know this book comes from God, and when I read it, it gives me so much guidance and direction and peace, like the Bible does. I know that anyone who reads the Book of Mormon and prays about it can receive a testimony of their own. I have seen it happen with myself and with many of my friends, and I have seen the blessings that come into their lives as they do.

How I live my faith

I used to volunteer for a non-profit organization that makes inexpensive prosthetic legs for people in developing nations. I also traveled to Peru this summer to implement engineering humanitarian projects for the people there. I feel so blessed to have been given so much, I am grateful for any opportunity I have to try and give back to the people who have less than I do. In our local congregation, I teach Sunday School and visit different women in the congregation and teach them and do whatever I can to help them. I love the chance to get to know and love different people, and develop friendships with people I might otherwise get to know. Serving and reaching out to others helps me to feel the love Heavenly Father has for them and for me.
