Hi I'm Kiara

I'm a Scotican (half Scottish, half Mexican). I grew up in Utah. My dream is to travel the world. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was a student going to BYU but currently I'm getting ready to serve a mission in the Dominican Republic. I love to read anything and I love to do things with my hands. I've painted, drawn and I have a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine. My major is International Relations and with that I hope to help better the lives of people all over the world. I've been so blessed and it's only fair I share it. I grew up in a mixed cultured home and I love being able to get the best parts from each culture.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS faith, but I'm a Mormon for more than that. Every time I've open up those scriptures I can feel that they're true. And as I've lived my faith, I feel my lifestyle is a good one. It's not easy to live up to the standards we've been asked to live, even in Utah (Where there is the highest concentration of Mormons). I was born in the church, but my Granny on my dad's side was the first convert ever in my family and my mom is a convert. I have plenty of family members who are not a Mormon. So I've had my share of questioning whether or not this Church was true. But as I've prayed, read the scriptures and pondered it, the answer I keep getting is that it is good and it must be true.

How I live my faith

I serve in whatever calling I've been asked to serve in. My favorite was being a Primary teacher for the ten to eleven year olds. Every week I'd prepare a lesson from the Old Testament and share it with them. It was great seeing them interact and learning the great stories from the Old Testament. Right now I don't have a calling in my ward, but I'm preparing to go on a mission. I'll be leaving my home for eighteen months and preaching the gospel in the Dominican Republic. I get to learn a new language and experience a new culture. This is something I've waited my whole life to do. And I've worked hard the past year so I could have the money to go. A mission is paid by the missionary.
