Hi I'm Kasie Maples

I grew up in Savannah Ga! I'm the oldest of three! I attend school at BYU-Idaho and I'm a mormon!

About Me

I am the oldest sibling; I have a younger brother and sister. I love being around my family, friends, and loved ones. I really enjoy going to new places the people that I love and sharing my experiences with them. I love camping fishing, hiking, and going on adventures. I like riding four wheelers and horses. My favorite animal is a horse because they are very strong, beautiful, hard workers, and get you where you need to be. I like going to the gym and working out and trying to stay healthy. In high school I really love being in art class and I’m pretty good at it. My favorite things that I did in art class were drawing and pottery. I feel like one of my biggest accomplishments was being the first in my family to go to college. For most of my youth I was the only active church member in my family. I have seen many of my family members struggle with trials including myself and have always tried to be a strong example to my family during these hard times and express to them that you can find happiness when you are living the gospel. I love everyone around me and I try to be understanding to all people and situations. I like to write in my journal so that I can one day look back and read over the things I’ve learned and experienced and so my family can read it in the future and share and learn from my experiences in my life. I go to college and my Major is Health Science and Minor is Medical Assisting.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church of My Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know this because I have seen the blessings that come from being a member of this church and striving to live and to be obedient to the commandments given to us by God. I know that I have a purpose here on earth; that purpose is to bring others and myself closer the Christ. I have the opportunity and resources to learn and grow and become like my Father in Heaven. To become the best I can be. I am a Mormon because it helps me to deepen my relationship with Heavenly Father. I am taught strongly and I know that I am a daughter of God and he knows and love me personally. I am a Mormon because it helps me to overcome any obstacle or challenge with a happy heart. Being a Mormon brings me true ultimate happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being obedient to the Laws and ordinances of the Gospel. I strive to be Christ like everyday by serving the Lord and those around me. I work hard to make sure the people around me are loved and appreciated. In church I serve by being a friend to those who need it and teaching the women and children of the church. I make it a goal everyday to read my scriptures and pray to remain a close relationship to my Heavenly Father. I’m preparing to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I will be devoting a year and a half completely to serving others and My Savior, with all my mind, might, strength, and heart.
