Hi I'm Kendra

I'm a senior in high school, I love playing music, photography, and writing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a senior this year in high school. I'm in the marching band, and I love being a band geek! I spend a lot of time hanging out with my friends when i'm not doing homework or working. I'm the only active member in my household, but I have a lot of supportive friends and family that keep me going. I love to write with my free time...whether it's short stories or poetry. I also enjoy photography. My grandpa is a photographer, so I suppose it runs in my blood, but regardless I love it. Secretly I love to sing when i'm in my car or by myself cleaning my room. I love my family and I'm trying to make as many memories with them as I can as I prepare to go to college. I hope to attend BYU Provo and obtain a career in nursing. I love to help people and to have interaction with people. The plan is to get specializations in Labor and Delivery as well as in the Trauma ward.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up as a child neither of my parents were active in the LDS (Latter day Saint..a.k.a Mormon) church but I did attend on occasion with my grandparents. Around the age of 6 or so however, I stopped going. For years after that church was not a big priority to me until I reached junior high. I had a friend that was attending a non-denominational Christian church. I started to go with her, and began to feel like that was where I wanted to be. I even went so far as to be baptized. Over time however I began to drift away from church frusterated that I still felt like I was missing something. Having a lot of LDS friends I bounced back and forth between the two churches for awhile and then confused I decided not to attend either. It was later my Junior year when my best friend (practically my sister) had a tragic loss of her sister. While there to be of support her Bishop began talking to me about the plan of salvation, and how families are together forever. This struck home for me, and I lost my father when I was 6, and had always wondered what happened after you die, or if you ever really see your loved ones again. It was at that point that I decided I wanted to take the discussions. AS the missionaries taught me about the church and the things that they beleived I felt as if I was watching a huge puzzle come together piece by piece. I prayed about it, and read the scriptures they provided me with, and everything they said just rang with truth. Everytime I prayed about it, I felt at peace. I knew that I had found what I was looking for, it just took a lot of life experiences and time for me to figure out that it was there all along. I made the decision to get baptized and on June 4th 2011 I became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have not once doubted by decision to join the church. My faith only continues to grow, and I love the church more everyday. I know the church is true beyond a shadow of a doubt, and hope other can see the same

How I live my faith

I live my faith to the best of my ability by being an example to others. I don't have callings in church but in day to day life, we have the opprotunity to make an impact on others. Whether that's in the form of a kind word, or even just a simple smile, I can be an example to the people around me...it makes them curious. When they start to ask questions, I answer them honestly and share a little bit of my story. I feel like a big part of living your faith is sharing it, because you want others to be able to know the same truth that you do.
