Hi I'm Kendall

I'm a skiier. I'm a nature lover. I'm a French enthusiast. I'm a missionary in the Poland Warsaw mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student. I love to ski and love to do anything outdoors. I have had the opportunity to travel a lot and see many different cultures. Traveling is one of my favorite things to do. Each person is a child of God, and that means all over the world! So I love being able to see the different ways that His children live throughout the Earth. Some of these travels include family trips, backpacking with a few friends, and even being able to serve people through humanitarian work. In addition to fun outdoor activities, I also love movies and love to read. My favorite kinds of movies are romantic comedies, and my favorite kinds of books are fictional books. Currently my favorite book is Harry Potter and my favorite movie is Les Miserables. I am a French enthusiast and love everything having to do with France: the language, the history, the music, the food, everything! I am currently serving a mission in Warsaw, Poland! The language is coming "Krok po Kroku" (step by step), but it's a fun language to learn! Being a missionary is better than I ever expected! I love everything about it! Having the opportunity to learn to love so many people and to teach them about the thing that is most important to me: the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both Mormons, and so I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. However, like any other person, situations where I could go against my beliefs have been present throughout my life. I have chosen to continue to follow the gospel because my greatest and constant goal is for the Lord to be proud of me. He asks us to follow His commandments, to read His scriptures, to pray to Him, and to love others. I know that when I do these things, He is proud of me. I am His daughter, and I love to make Him happy because I know that He will reward me with His love and with blessings that I cannot count. I also know that He gives us commandments so we can be protected and happy! I would do anything for Him because I love Him and know that He has and will do anything for me that is in my or my loved ones' best interest. I am happy that I can repay Him even the tiniest bit by serving a mission in Poland to teach others of this joy that I feel!

How I live my faith

Right now I am living my faith more than ever before because I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have been called by a prophet of God to serve the people of Poland! I get to teach all these people about my faith! Everything I do on this mission revolves around my faith in this church and this gospel and the fact that I have a personal testimony that it is true. I study the Bible and the Book of Mormon for several hours throughout the day as I plan lessons for those I teach! Before I left on my mission, I had the privilege and blessing to live my faith very easily everyday because I went to school at a university that is funded in part by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I got to go to religion classes and get to be taught by professors who start each class with a prayer and invite the Holy Spirit to be present in the class. I have benefitted so much from this learning environment and am blessed to constantly be surrounded by people and reminders of my faith.
