Hi I'm Kendra

I'm a Mormon. I am a wife, mother of 6, and a student.

About Me

My name is Kendra. I am the oldest of 10 chidren, a wife to the best husband, mother of 6, I own my own business in my home, and I am finishing (finally) with my degree in education. I am an avid reader of fiction and nonfiction. I work with the children in church and have for 15 years. I am outgoing and gregarious, happy and content, accepting and loving. I have my own share of personal faults and am far from perfect. However, I try, everyday, to be a better person.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but I am still a convert. I believe that everyone is a convert regardless of being born into the church or not. We all must personally convert ourselves to the Lord and strive to be like Him. There was no magic lightbulb moment for my conversion. My conversion happened over the years as I was taught the gospel of Jesus Christ and felt for myself the truthfullness of the gospel. I KNOW because I have asked and felt the truthfullness of the gospel. I take joy in the gospel of Jesus Christ. I can do all through Him who has created me as long as I am rightous and desire to fulfill His will for me.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is a daily goal. It is a one step at a time, make mistakes and repent, type of goal. I am far from perfect. However, I strive to be better, to be a good and loving wife and mother. I strive to serve my church and community. I serve as the nursery with the children 18 months to 3 years old, I love being in the nursery! I am also the compassionate service leader. It is my duty to assign and set up service for those in need in the war and community. I enjoy keeping a prayer in my heart in conversing with the Lord. I pray I can listen to Him more fully as I allign my life with His will for me and my family. It is important to me to teach my children about the gospel and how to live the gospel. Repentance is one of the most valuable tools to me. I want my children to appreciate the gift of the repentance process and how Jesus Christ provided this way for me personally. It is a personal this for all of us and was done for every single one of us, individually.

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

I like this question because it requires us to apply logic. Our Heavenly Father loves all of us. He sent his Son, Jesus Christ to redeem us and to teach us. In the areas where Jesus lived, walked, taught, and served, the people were provided teachers, prophets, temples, scriptures, and tools to learn of Him. They were provided the gospel. We know that there were people in other parts of the world through out time. So, my question of logis is this...Why would these people around the world, who Heavenly Father loves just as much, be left out and not provided these same tools and teachers and the gospel of Jesus Christ? The answer is, they weren"t left out. Heavenly Father provided these people with scriptures, teachers, prophets, temples, and the proper authority to administer His gospel to the people. Following his death, Jesus Christ visited these people, "Other sheep I have that are not of this fold". Jesus Christ loves us and has ensured that everyone, past and present, has or will have the opportunity to learn of Him and His redeeming gospel. Show more Show less
