Hi I'm Kayla Gonzalez

"I'm a performer. I'm an artist. I'm a mormon."

About Me

Hi My name is Kayla!:) I'm a High School Student who wants to pursue a career in Music and/or Veterinary Technology. I have love for animals, children and music. One thing that I am interested in is volunteer work. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and I love my religion.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the mormon church but have always had a love for the gospel. I was taught how to pray by my wonderful mother, who also taught me that we have a loving Heavenly Father who knows what is best for us. I have Faith in my Savior Jesus Christ and I know without a doubt that he loves each and everyone of us---whether we are of the same religion or not. I choose to continue to be a believer of Mormonism because I know in my heart and have found out for myself that it is true and that Prayer works and that everything we go through in this life is for our good.

How I live my faith

I like volunteering at local businesses and in the neighborhood. I am on my city's Youth Council and it keeps me very busy and helps have a greater appreciation for everything I have been given over the years. I take advantage of every opportunity I get to be involved in church or stake choirs or community music programs. I schedule events in which youth in my Church can go to the temple with me. I like to go often to the temple and try to go at least once a month.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Kayla Gonzalez
I noticed that when I read any sort of scripture, that my day goes much better. It's amazing how much reading your scriptures Daily affects your attitude. Also when you read scriptures you are drawing yourself closer to God through his words and through the words of his people. Scripture reading is a great way to find any unanswered questions in your life and can help guide you through any personal struggles you may be facing. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Kayla Gonzalez
Prayer is an excellent way to get to know our Father in Heaven on a more personal level. Through prayer we recieve blessings and revelation for ourselves. I like to think of prayer as a coneversation with god. It is important to be specific when you pray. Thank God for things you are grateful for, or ask him for help. In James 1:5 it states that we should pray to our Heavenly Father and ask for knowledge and Wisdom. I also believe that diligent scripture study can help us come to know God. He revealed his words unto the prophets so that we may come to know him. The stories were recorded for a reason, so you might as well read them and try and relate them to ourselves. If we want help from God we need to be obedient to his commandments. If we are truely in need of guidance or help, then God will grant us extra blessings for being obedient and will trust us more because we obey his words. Show more Show less
