Hi I'm Kenzi Paige

I'm Kenzi, I dance, I love platypuses... and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a college student studying to be a criminal profiler (deception expert psychologist) as well as studying dance. I have been dancing for a few years but have grown up around it all my life. I absolutely love dance and being able to express what words cannot through movement.

Why I am a Mormon

I don't know if any of this is going to make sense to anyone reading, or will even make an impression, but these words I write are simply my feelings towards this gospel. I have always been raised in the church, my parents were and are always loving, and taught all of my siblings and I the teachings of Christ and the love he had/has for each one of us individually. There was never a moment that I completely doubted the church and its teachings. I mean I always knew it to be true, and it was always taught to me to be true. But I don't think I ever had a confirmation of it for myself until a few years back. I was never a rebellious child/teen by any means but instead was very insecure and hard on myself. Life was rough and I couldnt figure out why no matter what I did I could not truly be happy with myself or truly anything. This is that moment when you hear//see the quote "When life knocks you down, you are in the perfect position to pray." So... that's exactly what I did, sat in my room, all alone, kneeled, bowed down my head and prayed. I do not even remember what i said but all I know is there was an overwhelming spirit filling my room and I could feel the Saviors arms around me, but when I opened my eyes there was no one there. At this moment I knew and my life became so much more joyful and comforting. This restored gospel is true. Our Father in Heaven knows us all individually and when we pray he is listening, waiting to comfort and guide us. Prayer has been something so genuine to me, and I know I can talk to my Father whenever I need him or just want to talk. He will always be there and will always love me; and that right there is more than enough to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It my be hard, but it will always be worth it.

How I live my faith

RIght now I am attending an LDS school and I live my faith every single day. Whether its attending different functions like weekly devotionals, visiting teaching, or organizing weekly home evenings for my home evening group. I am constantly trying to fulfill my duties as well as find other ways to help serve and get to know those around me. It has been such a great and humbling learning experience as I am able to grow myself and find a greater love for others.
