Hi I'm Kyndra

I'm a writer, music-lover, cutting-a-rug bookworm, who laughs at random, INFJ personality type. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born premature with a hole in my heart - a condition known as Ventricular Septal Defect. Not breathing, I was given a Priesthood blessing by my dad and grandfather. My dad says what happened is a miracle. He felt the presence of angels in the room, at that moment, and knew that I had a purpose on this earth and would live. I'm grateful to be here and hope to be able to find that purpose. As a single adult, I love to read and write stories. It is an inspiring way for me to put down my thoughts and feelings of the world and people surrounding my life. Dance and music are great forms of expression to me too. Be it hip-hop or country line dancing, I am there! Also, I love to create music through the piano, and have been playing for over eleven years now. I love art, musicals, pouring rain, laughter, hikes, and the beach. I believe the greatest happiness in life is to love and be loved, and I feel it spending time with my family or giving service. That's why I often listen and remember what people tell me about themselves. It is important. It's a way to get to know and connect with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church and, at a young age, had no doubts of its truthfulness. I attended Sacrament meetings, watched General Conference with my family, and willingly decided to be baptized at the age of eight. I was content with my place in life. Then life began to change, as it does constantly. Worldy pressures and problems began to build one after another, and it was as if I was stuck in a state of sorrow and pain. However, I did my best to move on and uphold the Church's standards. Most of which I found in the scriptures including The Book of Mormon and the Bible. I found out what it means to have integrity - to stand for what it right and true. My testimony grew in my Savior, Jesus Christ, and in His teachings, which brought a feeling of peace to my heart. Though troubles often come, I know that I can find true happiness if I turn to God in prayer and remember the promises that the Gospel brings. To anyone who desires to feel this same joy and comfort, I encourage you to study the scriptures with an open mind and heart, pray to God to know if what is written in them is true, and I promise you will receive an answer. I have felt the Spirit confirm unto me that The Book of Mormon is true - and was indeed translated by the prophet Joseph Smith, and that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live today and love each and every one of us. I know that this church is true with all of my heart, and I will never deny it.

How I live my faith

As a member of the Church, I was called by my ward's bishop to be a Primary teacher about two years ago (For those who are unfamiliar, Primary is a Sunday class time for children ages 3 to 11 to learn about the gospel through lessons and singing songs). Right now, I teach a class of seven kids between the ages of six and seven. It may seem like hard work to most, but to me it's a great blessing to watch them learn, and grow, and smile. Also, I desire to serve a mission for the Church in the near future. I do not know where I will be called to serve, or what obstacles I will need to endure, but I look forward to it. I hope to be able to continue to strengthen my testimony. I will give all I can in the Lord's work.
