Hi I'm Kira

I grew up in Utah. I'm currently a college student, studying Political Science and classical languages. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a freshman in college studying political science and classical languages. Some of me hobbies include reading, boating, and crocheting.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints because of the peace that I feel when I am doing what God will have me do. There is safety in listening to the Lord. He speaks. Whenever I need answers, help, or guidance He is there. I testify to you that God knows everyone of us. He cares and loves you. He is there during the good and the bad times. He hears your prayers and He answers. He has put prophets on the earth to lead and guide this church. They lead by the divine power of God. Listen to what they say, it will lead you closer to God and back to his presence.

How I live my faith

Living on my own for the first time has taught me to rely on the Lord. Doing things like reading my scriptures and saying my prayers have led me to have the Holy Ghost with me. I have also found out that the influence of friends can make all the difference in my life. Together, we go to church and do things that help us fill closer to Christ. I know that whenever I am with them, I can trust that we will only do those things which are pleasing to the Lord.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another witness of Jesus Christ. It is an account of Lehi and his family who were commanded to leave Jerusalem around 600 B.C.E. and go to the American continent. Once there, they became a great civilivation. The Book of Mormon is an account of the prophets' records of the history of those people. The major event is when Christ visited the American continent after He was resurrected. It testifies of Christ and His atonement. You can know if this book is true by following the promise made by the prophet Moroni. Those who read it and sincerely pray can know by the power of the Holy Ghost that it is true.
