Hi I'm Shawn Youngrae Kim

I am a music lover, nature lover, a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My parents were both converts and moved from South Korea. I am the first American citizen in my family. I love music, arts, the rain, running... I went to a year of college and decided to go on a mission. Came to the Florida mission and got sent to a town in GA. Loving the South and loving the culture here. The people are kind, friendly and warm. I have two older sisters and two younger brothers. My dream is to travel the world and see new things and people so that I can broaden my horizons.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have hope, I feel God's love, I have faith in Christ and that will carry me through anything. I know my purpose in life and I get strength from that. It is the center of how I live and I know that this is not the end. As a missionary I get to see people change for the better in front of me and I am blessed to be a part of that process in their lives. I get to answer questions that people have about life and families. I get to have a blast and dive into new cultures by serving the people here, whether that is community service, teaching, yard work, giving company to someone. It doesn't matter. Its just that I can be the change I want to see in the world. I get to help real people with real problems, because what I know can help everyone.

How I live my faith

Teach whoever wants to learn about what we believe and I strive everday to be the best I can be. A lot of the times its hard, but it is so worth it.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Shawn Youngrae Kim
Everyone dies, but the beauty of it is that everyone that has been on the Earth and will be on the Earth will have life after death. Everyone that never had the chance to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ will learn of him in the next life and be able to progress. Through Jesus Christ is everyone made alive. Show more Show less
