Hi I'm Kalen

I'm a neuroscience major at Brigham Young University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in an LDS family (the best family I could ask for) with loving and fun parents and a wonderful little sister. I was in the International Baccalaureate program in high school and am now studying neuroscience at Brigham Young University. I hope to go into research in behavioral neuroscience as well as become a wife and mother. I have the best friends ever and love to goof off and be silly with them. I go through trials just like everyone else, but when I take a step back and look at things, life is so, so good!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family and was raised going to church every week. Even though it wasn't my decision to be born into an LDS family, it WAS my decision to be baptized and become a member of this church, and I'm so glad I did. Not only have I made so many wonderful friends through this church, but I am also able to be with my family for eternity because of it. I absolutely know that this is the true church. I've witnessed so many miracles, had so many prayers answered, and seen the priesthood work. I know for a fact that my Heavenly Father and my Savior, Jesus Christ, know me personally and know exactly what I need. They're always there to comfort me and listen to me. They're there to help me make big decisions, lift me up when I'm sad, guide me through a trial, and share in my joyful moments. The gift of the Holy Ghost is real and guides me through life. God lives. Christ lives. They are my best friends. I love Them and I love this gospel that brings me so much joy.

How I live my faith

I try to be kind to everyone and let them know that they have a friend in me. To me, a major part of this church is following Christ's example. Christ loves every single person on this earth. He wants them to feel loved, and He wants US to make them feel loved. We need to be the ones who serve others and love each other. I also try to follow the teachings of the scriptures and the prophets. I hope that I can show people the joy that this gospel brings me and invite them to join through my example.
