Hi I'm Kimberly Meredith

I grew up in the famous Orange County, California. I am currently a missionary in Oklahoma and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love life and people! In everything I do I try to find the joy in the little things. I have worked at Disneyworld where I created magic for people all around the world. I am very spontaneous and love to have a good time with whatever I do. I currently have put my life on hold to serve a mission in Tulsa, Oklahoma. When I get back in 18 months I will finish my degree in Math education. I received my associates at BYU-Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed to be raised in a family who constantly went to church and practiced constant communication with God. I felt good about it but wanted to find out for myself if God was real and if Christ's church has been restored to earth these latter days. I read the whole Book of Mormon/listened on tape when I was 13/14 and after finishing I got on my knees and earnestly asked my Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon was a true record of the people in the Americas. Not soon after did I have a feeling of peace and joy seem to come. I couldn't stop smiling and wanted to share it with everyone around me! Since than I have had constant confirmations that God is a loving God and is constantly giving communication with His Latter Day Prophet; Thomas S. Monson.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living a Christ centered life! I try to think of Christ often and keep a prayer in my heart. I love to serve others and do the best I can to live the teachings that Christ taught. I am fully active in various callings like planning activities for my fellow members to be united in Spirit and be there for each other. I am currently serving a full-time mission in Oklahoma Tulsa to teach people about Christ and to accept him by being baptized!

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Kimberly Meredith
I love this question!!! There are multiple ways to come and know our Father in Heaven but the best way that I have found is to sincerely pray to Him and to study Him. If you want to know someone what do you do? Study them and talk to them! It's the same. I have also found by talking to others about our Father in Heaven and going to church has really solidified my testimony of who my Father in Heaven is. And that He is literally our Father and not just a mass of energy but has a body of flesh and bone and cares for us. And weeps when we weep! And rejoices when we make the right decisions!

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Kimberly Meredith
No, Mormons are not required to serve a mission. It is highly encouraged especially for the men who hold the priesthood. I am currently a missionary and I LOVE IT!! I honestly can't picture doing anything else with my time. I love telling people out here that I not only chose but am paying to be out serving the Lord. There is no greater call! Show more Show less
