Hi I'm Kara

I am a college graduate, a stay-at-home mom, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am BYU graduate with a BA in History. I am a wife to an amazing man and a mother to a beautiful little girl. I love to read and watch movies. I love spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in an LDS home. Growing up my family was very active in the Church and I participated in the Primary and Young Women's programs. After high school I attended Brigham Young University. While there, I had to decide if I really truly believed what I learned as a child and a teenager. I prayed and studied the scriptures intently. I had wonderful experiences in which I felt the Holy Ghost confirm to me that everything I had learned about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ was true. I decided to continue to follow Christ and was so grateful that I was a member of His church. It has been the best decision of my life. My husband converted to the Church before we got married and we were sealed in the temple for time and all eternity. I can't imagine how my life would be without the gospel in my life. It has brought me closer to Christ in ways I never could have imagined. Everything about the restored gospel impacts my life in amazing ways. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I serve as a leader to the young women (ages 12-18). I teach a class of 16-18 year old young women every other Sunday. I also get together with this group of young women on Wednesday nights and do various activities including service in the community and learning how to be good people. I also strive to be a good example to everyone around me by 'practicing what I preach.'

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Kara
While we revere Joseph Smith for restoring the gospel of Jesus Christ in modern times, we do not worship him. We worship Jesus Christ as the Savior and Redeemer of the world. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Kara
Absolutely! We believe in Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world. We can only be saved through Him. We worship Him as our Redeemer and strive to be his disciples in all that we do. It is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - He is the head of it. Even as imperfect humans, we do our best to emulate His life in our own lives. Show more Show less
