Hi I'm Kinzi.

Loving the third year of married life, no kids yet, working full-time, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a zipper scar from two open-heart surgeries which I think is very cool! My medical history does not stop me from doing the things I want to do such as graduating from college, working full-time, and trying to figure out what is next in my life. I came from an interesting family. Although my parents were married in the temple, they later divorced. Each has since remarried which means that I have three natural-siblings and nine step-siblings. I do not have as good of a relationship with my mom that I would like to have because she is upset with my decision to marry instead of serving a full-time mission for the church. I, however, do not regret my choice because I felt that the Lord would bless me and be happy if I chose either of those two options. My husband and I met online and dated for two years before marrying. As for interests, I am perpetually "dejunking" my house. I also enjoy cleaning but the urge to do so happens sporadically. Most of the time when I am not at work I can be found reading or watching tv.

Why I am a Mormon

I had the opportunity to live in England where I first realized that not everyone believes as I do. I also realized that everyone has unique life experiences which when shared can help and encourage others with whatever they may be going through. When my parents were going through their divorce I had a difficult time understanding why they were getting divorced if families are so important. I realize now though that what the gospel teaches is the ideal. Everyone, however, is allowed to decide for themselves what they will do. It does hurt though when family members and other loved ones make choices that go against my beliefs.

How I live my faith

I have recently tried to reach out more to the members in my ward by introducing myself to new people and trying to find things that we have in common. I serve in the temple. I have been trying harder to help those I visit teach by trying to find things I can do for them. It sometimes is something little like giving boxes to those who are moving but sometimes it is cooking a meal for a family. I hope one day to serve in my community by participating in a blood drive. At my work I have the opportunity to donate to scholarship funds and try to do that whenever the chance arises because that was the main reason I was able to finish my schooling in a timely matter and I want to give back in that way.
