Hi I'm Kaila

I grew up in Washington. I am a college student in Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a single 21 year old woman attending college. I love to scuba dive, read, hike, go to the movies and I enjoy participating in social events such as dances or picnics. I love to have fun and let loose with friends. I love to serve my community and family.

Why I am a Mormon

The message of the gospel is so hopeful and dear to me that I cannot imagine being without it. My soul burns with the knowledge of the truthfulness of it's message. I rely on it daily. I know that my Savior reigns and that He will come again. I know that this is His church and that it is lead by His prophet on Earth today. I know that I will see those I have lost again and that everyone will have the chance to hear this glorious message, if not in this life, then in the one to come. My assurance of the truths of this Gospel are what solidifies my membership in this church. I know that everything I am taught as a member is truth and comes straight from the Lord's mouth. The truth of this church cannot be denied in my soul.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday I attend church. I volunteer as often as circumstances allow in my community and church.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is a knowledge deep in your soul that something is true. The Holy Ghost grants us this knowledge. Our testimonies are what we can testify to know of as truth. My testimony is that I know that Christ lives, that He will come again, and that this IS His church restored to the earth. I know that Christ was sent to earth to atone for the sins of the earth. I know that the prophet today is called of God and leads us according to God's revelations. Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Although Mormon women are as diverse and unique as the worlds population of women. What unifies us in description is our belief in God and the family. Women are encouraged to gain as much education as possible, in order to further fulfill their lives and the lives of their future family. We believe that women have the divine gifts of a nurturing and caring spirit and that those gifts are to be used throughout our lives and with our families. The mother and father of a family are partners, both equally involved in the rearing of their children. The family should be founded on principles of love, faith and equality. The focus of a family should be to rear and guide the children to be upstanding citizens and people. Show more Show less
