Hi I'm Kimberly Heggem

I am a student in college who loves writing and drawing. I read fantasy novels and watch movies. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently taking a break from college to serve a mission in the New York Utica Mission. When I return home, I will probably look into doing an art major. No matter what I decide to do, I'm a novelist at heart in the end. Perhaps one day, I'll be able to do more with my writing than enjoy the stories myself. I seek inspiration from movies, books, and video games. By far my favorite game series is the Legend of Zelda.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, and continue to be so, because I have a sense of familiarity with the doctrines and principles. The joy I have in following the gospel is one of the things that has kept me afloat these past years. And as I learn more and more about this gospel, and follow those things taught, I feel even happier than I did before. I could not imagine doing or being anything else. In the end, my faith and my hope in Jesus Christ helps pull me forward each day. And no matter what hardships come my way, I can take courage in knowing that Heavenly Father will continue to strengthen me until I am able to overcome my weaknesses through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I serve when and where I can, and that's usually in small ways. I am a firm believer about being an example unto others, even if I don't necessarily speak to them. I do the best I can to LIVE my religion, not just believe it. It's funny going back and thinking about what has happened in life. I know that without having the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life and living his teachings, there was no way I would've made it to this point, serving a mission in the New York Utica Mission. It is certainly a trial to serve the Lord, but nothing is more worth it. When the Morman Message "Courage" came out, I instantly identified with it. It is about a question I certainly ask myself every single day. "How have you shown courage?"
