Hi I'm Kimberly

I am a pure California girl who is a lover of life. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am definitely a californian at heart, with a love for all things outdoors. I love to surf, run, hike and just to be active. As a college student in Utah, though, I have also learned to love the snow as well as the sun, though it defintely took an adjustment! Studying comparative literature, a language major, I love different cultures and languages, especially the different types of cultural food. You could honestly call me a california hippie, since I love to cook Vegan food and am passionate about the environment too.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised LDS, but I call myself Mormon because I know for myself that this is God's church on the earth and this is how I can reach personal happiness and fulfillment. I would trace my own personal moment of conversion to my junior year of high school, when I was faced with the death of very good friend. She had died a violent, tragic death, and our friends as well as our community was shaken to the core. I was distraught and upset, unable to find any peace. I remember the turning point came when I got down on my knees and asked my Heavenly Father now why this had happened, but for strength to carry on through this trial. After I said that prayer, I felt as if the Lord put his arms around me, and I knew this his infinite love was there to support me and help me to continue without anger and with faith in God. From that moment on, because of that outpouring of love and support, I cannot deny that I know God lives, that he loves his children, and that this is the true church of God with the power to bring us closer to our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I am going to be serving as a Missionary for my church, living for a year and a half in Chile and speaking Spanish. I can't wait for this incredible opportunity! Not only will I seek to serve the chilean people, but I will be sharing my love for God with others, and encouraging them to seek a relationship with Christ in their lives.
