Hi I'm Kendra Haynie Walser

I love my family. I am an AVID BYU athletics fan. I am an Elementary school teacher and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from the beautiful desert of Southern Utah and have endured the humidity of eastern Texas serving as a fulltime missionary. I am the 6th of 12 children and have a mom and a dad. My family means the world to me and they motivate me to do what I do every day. I am so happily married and have the most adorable little girl! I love to be in amongst the elementary children, teaching/learning, all that I can to/from those rambunctious souls. I believe that life is meant to be enjoyed, not just endured; and living the gospel every day, helps make that happen! I am obsessed with karaoke, Just Dance, BYU Athletics, my family and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon family and was baptized when I was eight years old. Just because I was born into the Church did not mean that I did not have to come to know for myself that the beliefs of the Latter-day Saint Church were true. I had to ask my Heavenly Father if what I had been learning all my life was true. I had to learn for myself that Joseph Smith did see God the Father and his Son, Jesus Christ. That by the power of God he translated the Book of Mormon and everything in that book is in fact, from God. I asked, and Heavenly Father confirmed it. Because of my faith, I have found peace, healing, and comfort, and have been blessed with larger testimony of the truth of this gospel. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. He loves me more than I can imagine, and His atoning sacrifice makes it possible for me to return to Him and my Heavenly Father one day. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's church on the earth today. It teaches of Christ and testifies that only through Jesus Christ can we be saved from our sins. I am a Mormon because I have a testimony that Jesus is the Christ!

How I live my faith

My faith is my way whole way of living. It does not just dictate what we do on Sundays, or during church, but it is a way of life. I try and emulate my Savior in everything I do.
