Hi I'm Kendra

I'm a college student. I love to make people laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm Kendra! I love to read books. My favorites are the Harry Potter Series and Pride and Prejudice. I love driving around and listening to music, especially songs where I can sing my heart out. I'm going to school to be a teacher. I spend my free time by making my friends and family laugh. Sometimes I'm silly and ridiculous. But as long as I'm with the people I love, I'm happy.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel has had such an impact on my life. I've been raised in the Church, but it wasn't until I was about 13 that I was truly converted. I always prayed silently that I could know that God was really there. One night I woke up from a really bad nightmare. I couldn't calm myself down. But a thought popped in my head that told me that if I prayed to my Heavenly Father, then He would help me feel better. I prayed out loud for the first time that night. Almost immediately, I felt an overwhelming sense of peace. I knew that God was really there. I felt for the first time that Heavenly Father really knows who I am, and that he loves me more than I can ever begin to understand.

How I live my faith

Because I know that my Heavenly Father loves me, I know that He wants me to live with Him again one day. So I try to do the things that He would want me to do. I go to church every Sunday so I can learn more about why I'm here on earth, and what I need to do to return to live in Heavenly Father's presence. I visit two women in the area where I live at least once a month to make sure they are doing well and read to them a little message from the leaders of the Church. I only met them a few months ago, but I already know that they are awesome ladies and I love visiting them. They aren't just an assignment on my to-do list: they are my friends.
