Hi I'm Kenzie

I’m tomboyish& girly, athletic& artistic, outdoorsy& a homebody. Sometimes a walking contradiction. I’m me. I'm happy! I'm Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in northern Wyoming and now live in beautiful Colorado. I’m a convert, and I love this gospel so much! It has truly changed my life in the best ways possible! I like to think of my self as being outgoing and positive, most of the time. I like to play sports and consider myself relatively artistic. The best kind of ice cream has both vanilla and chocolate, and because soda is in no way good for you, I haven’t had one in over a year!

Why I am a Mormon

At 18 I wanted nothing to do with religion. I went to church to make my mom happy, but I disliked everything about it. I felt like what I was being told wasn't quite right and I disliked that I was being judged because I didn't believe it- this is what I assumed all religion was like and I didn't want any of it. So when I moved from home and out of state the last thing on my mind was church. But the Lord had other plans for me. The day after I had moved the missionaries knocked on the door. To make a long story short, they gave me info for church and one Sunday a couple weeks later I was bored so I went. There was something about the chapel, something happy, exiting and calming all at once. For the next two months or so I went to church meetings and activities to “check things out” and that new feeling was always there. Finally I decided that I wanted to take the missionary lessons. I figured baptism wasn't in the equation I just wanted to know why these people believed what they did. While taking the lessons I'd never pray to know if what I was learning was true, instead I just prayed to have an open mind about what I was learning. I did this because I was scared that what I was learning might not be true. Scared that all the negative stuff I had heard in the past would be right. And I wanted what I was learning from the elders and feeling in my heart to be true, so badly! Then one night, four months into taking the lessons I was reading my scriptures and it accrued to me that I needed to have faith in faith. So I got down on my knees and took a deep breath to gather my courage and asked God if he was really there, and if the Book of Mormon was true, along with my other questions and concerns, and as I knelt there my answer came by a burning warmth in my heart that spread throughout every inch of my body and I knew without a doubt the Heavenly Father had answered my prayer! A month later I was baptized! Why Am I Mormon? Because I know of the Truth this Church has!

How I live my faith

I would say I 'live my faith' by living every day as well as I can. By striving to be the person I think Heavenly Father wants me to be.
