Hi I'm Kira

I'm a mother of three. I'm a piano player, a runner, and a reader. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I am a mother of two boys and one girl, ages four, three, and two months, and that pretty much consumes my life! I studied social work in college and I hope to someday practice social work, most likely helping children in some way. Most of my days revolve around my kids: playing outside with them, reading books to them, feeding them, cleaning them, feeding them again, cleaning them again, playing games, and cleaning the house with them by my side. When I'm not doing any of those things, I exercise, read, play the piano, decorate my house, sew, or garden.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but when I was about 13, I started to wonder if what I'd been taught was really true. I talked to my dad about this and he told me to follow the directions given in the Book of Mormon to pray to know if what I'd been taught was true. I prayed but did not immediately receive an answer. A couple of months later, I publicly spoke about my struggle to know for myself. As I spoke, the Holy Ghost confirmed to me that what I'd been taught was true. Ever since then, I've continued to live as I've been taught, and the happiness I feel, the witness of the Holy Ghost, and the closeness I feel to Heavenly Father all confirm to me that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I know that Christ suffered and died for us so we can feel happiness in this life and overcome all pain, sorrow, and sin, and someday return to our Heavenly Father. I am so grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; with the gospel, I can be with my family forever, I know why I am here and the purpose of my life, and I receive daily guidance from Heavenly Father about what I should be doing with my life. I can not imagine being a mother without this relationship I have with my Heavenly Father. Every day comes with new trials, and I constantly wonder if I am raising my kids in the best possible way. I pray daily for guidance, and it always comes.

How I live my faith

I try to live by the motto, "Never suppress a generous thought." When I think to do something kind for someone else, I try to do it. I bring meals to those who've recently had babies or surgeries. I share baked goods with my neighbors. I offer to babysit. I regularly visit ladies from Church. I play the piano while the children learn songs in Church. I try to follow Jesus Christ's example by being loving and kind to everyone with whom I associate.
