Hi I'm Kendall

I love fashion, sports, cooking, smiling, I'm serving a mission in the Argentina Buenos Aires South mission, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Currently I am serving a mission for the church and I am so excited to bring the gospel to others! I am from Chandler, Arizona and have a family of five with two younger brothers. The church is a big part of my life as well as my friends and school at Arizona State University with a couple semesters at BYU. I hope to continue on with my degree in nutrition or exercise sciences. Basketball, Softball, Baseball, Tennis, Swimming, Dance, Ping Pong, Soccer, you name it, I've played it! I love sports and any outdoor adventure! I love to camp, hike and run. I grew up a Tom Boy and blossomed into a well rounded girly girl with a love for competition. I played competitive soccer all through out my life and I loved every minute of it. Soccer makes me so happy and It has always been a huge part of my life. I have a new found love for running and am training for half marathons now! I also have a love for food. I love cooking and I love eating! I am so excited to one day cook for a family. I am always looking for new healthy recipes and watching cooking shows. Life is great, I love my family and friends, I am so blessed to be where I am right now and I couldn't ask for a more wonderful life. I live life with an optimistic attitude and if I chance to meet a frown, I quickly turn it upside down. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I absolutely love being Mormon. I do not know where I would be without the gospel in my life but I know that I would not be the person that I am today. I was raised in the church and have been active for all of my life. I have never looked at the guidelines of the church as restricting but more as a healthy way of living a righteous life. I often get the question, " Kendall, why are you always so happy?" and all that I have to say is that it's because I have nothing to be sad about. Being a Mormon has made me a positive person and I know that everything happens for a reason. I have been let down many times in life but this just drives me to work harder. Being a Mormon has allowed me to make so many friends. I have a great mix of Mormon and Non-Mormon friends and I could not be more blessed with what I have. I have had many missionary experiences and always have a great support system through my friends. Having friends with the same faith is such a blessing. It is inspiring to be around someone that only wants to uplift you in a world full of trial and torment. Friends have been a huge influence on me and I love being able to set an example for my Non-Mormon friends as well. I continue to follow this gospel because I know that it is true. I know that whatever I do in this life will bless me in the next life. My family is very strong in the LDS religion and they have helped me through out my years to stay strong. Being a Mormon is such a blessing and although there are challenges along the way, I will always endure to the end.

How I live my faith

I am a new member to a singles ward and I am loving it. It has been difficult to get used to but I have never felt the spirit so strong. I actively attend Institute every day and I chose to take two classes because I wanted the credits to transfer to BYU, where I plan to transfer by the end of this school year. I love listening to hymns and have recently started to read my scriptures diligently. There is so much truth to be found in them. I stay strong to my standards and one that is very dear to me is modesty. I have never been tempted to dress immodestly but because I love the world of fashion, it is sometimes hard to find the latest trend and transform it into something modest. I have become a master at this and I hope to be an example to the younger generation because although I live in 120 degree weather at times, I still find a way to dress modestly. I believe strongly that modesty can effect how someone lives their life. I am a visiting teacher and have received so many blessings through that. This summer I attended the BYU summer session and had the chance to be a gospel doctrine teacher. It was the best experience of my life. I do not have a calling at the moment but I am doing all that I can to prepare for whatever the Lord has in store for me.
