Hi I'm Kimberly

I grew up in North Carolina. I was home schooled. I am a college student. I love reading. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read pretty much anything. Acting and anything else theatre related are some of my favorite things in the world. I have 2 brothers and a sister who I absolutely adore. They are the best. I just got home from a full-time mission in California and it was amazing! I am currently a senior at BYU-Idaho studying Child Development.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents have been members of the Church since long before I was born so I grew up having the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I tried to do everything that was expected of me when I was younger, but I didn't really know why until much later. About the time I started high school I decided that I needed to find out for myself if the Book of Mormon really was the word of God. When I finished it a couple of months later I knelt down and prayed to my Father in Heaven to know if it was true. As soon as I did I felt a peace come over me and I knew that it was. Because of that experience and many since then I am able to say without a doubt that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only true Church on the earth. It has blessed my life in more ways than I can count and because it makes me so happy I want everyone in the world to have the same knowledge and joy that I do.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by not hiding it. I let others know what I believe and why it is important to me. I try my best to live the principles of the gospel and help others see how it has helped me. I try to share my testimony whenever I can.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

The things that happen in the temple are not secrets, but they are sacred and that is why we don't discuss them outside the temple and also why they are not available to everyone. In order to enter the temple you have to have a reccomend and before you can get one you have to be interviewed by church leaders to see if you are living the commandments of God. Show more Show less
