Hi I'm Kira

I am married with four sons and a full time job. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 My hobbies and interests are watching good TV and movies, swimming, and reading good books, especially science fiction and fantasy. I love beautiful artwork, scrapbooking, and music. I love nature and scenery, especially the Rocky mountains. I love playing the piano for my friends and family to sing along with. I have four children, all boys. I love my husband, Randy. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I started out as a Mormon when I was born into a Mormon family. But I gradually learned for myself that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. I read the scriptures and felt the Spirit of the Holy Ghost testify of the truth. I am still a Mormon today because I feel that Heavenly Father's plan of happiness is the right way for me. I can overcome challenges and trials in life because the gospel gives me comfort. My testimony gives me joy and happiness and I feel God's love for me. I know it's true. 

How I live my faith

 For many years I played the piano for the children in my church. I also love to sing in the church choir. I feel the Spirit of God with music and that makes me happy. I do my best to take my kids to church every week so they can learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

Kira
 I was asked once if we celebrated Christmas and Easter. Absolutely! They are my favorite holidays. We believe in Christ and we love to celebrate His birth and His resurrection. I put up Christmas trees and hide Easter eggs because they are fun family traditions. Feeling the love of Jesus Christ in my life during these holidays is the best part. Show more Show less

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Kira
 Some people call the Mormon Church a cult because they think we brainwash people into joining our church. We don't brainwash people. In fact, we encourage everyone to find out for themselves whether our church is right for them. There is nothing scary or sinister about our church. We teach our children about Jesus Christ through songs and lessons just like any other church or school and they are free to choose. Show more Show less
