Hi I'm Kara Gilson

I love my family. I love to dance. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

The most important thing to me, is my family! They are so amazing and they help me in every aspect of my life. I am the daughter of a single mother and am so happy to have her here to support me in all I do. I love sunshine and I love to smile! I love to go camping, rafting, and anything outdoors. I love both watching and playing sports! I am a dancer. I also love to listen and sing to music.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love being a mormon!!! It is such a blessing in my life to have the gospel! I grew up as a non denominational Christian, but I always felt like I never really knew the whole truth. When I took the missionary lessons for the first time I finally felt like I knew what had been missing. It took me almost five years to decide to get baptized but I finally was and am so happy to be a member! I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior. I know that he died on the cross for our sins. I know that I am a daughter of my heavenly father and he loves me and I love him!! I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it was translated Joseph Smith so we can have it to read and learn from today. I know that I will return to my father in heaven if I live a righteous and faithful life. I love this gospel and am so happy to have it in my life!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow in the footsteps of Christ and to become more like him. I believe that service is a way that I can live my faith. I participate in the Young Womens program in our ward and we have planned service projects. I love to go to them because I always feel the spirit around me when I'm working. I also believe that teaching is another big way that I can live my faith. A person may learn something from me just from watching me. So I believe that I must always be willing to show kindness and service anywhere I go.
