Hi I'm Kari

I grew up in Arizona. I love the sun and warmth and being outside. I'm going to travel the world someday. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Thatcher, Arizona. I love to play tennis and sing along with the radio. I'm currently attending university and working towards a degree in Public Relations. I want to go to law school when I graduate. In January, I'm going to be going on a mission to Costa Rica and I am beyond excited to serve!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon home and grew up as a member of the church. But that is not the reason that I am a member today. I was tested and tried as a teenager. I struggled to find out for myself if this was the true church or not. And one day, after praying harder than I ever have in my entire life, I felt the love of my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ warm my heart. I truly did. I KNOW that this is the true church. I know that this gospel is the way to exaltation. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for the world's sins and His Atonement has made it possible for us to return to him. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the prophet of God. I know this gospel brings warmth and happiness into my life like nothing else could. I know that Joseph Smith restored this gospel to the earth and that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that through the gospel, I can be with my family forever. I know all of these things and hope that I can share them with others. This gospel is the most precious gift in my life and I want to share it.
