Hi I'm Kjiera

I grew up in the U.S.. I am a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy singing. I feel closer to God and feel the spirit more when I sing uplifting songs. I enjoy sports i.e basketball and American football. Soccer and I haven't had a really good relationship unfortunately but I like watching it. I love learning and reading, in any subject generally. I feel knowledge is power, and through knowledge we can grow closer to Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father and understand the workings and purpose of our life here on Earth. Right now I am serving as a Missionary and will be serving in Brazil, when I get my visa.

Why I am a Mormon

Being raised in the church I have not really known anything different from knowing the truth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Yet throughout my life I have had my ups and downs, times when I have strayed away from the love of God and His healing power in my naive understanding, and very low times of despair. Though in my short time here on Earth I've learned, I must continually convert my heart to God, to Jesus Christ, to the gospel and I will have peace. I've learned through faith and following the Lords will that if I follow Him and turn to Him in all things I will be safe. My fears will be subsided, my doubts set at ease and my worries melt away for I know He has a plan for me. I am Mormon because the church completes me. The teachings of this gospel draw me closer to my savior and my Heavenly Father, and helps me understand the divine gifts he has in store for all His children here on Earth. He loves us so much and dearly. He sent his only begotten son here to suffer and die for us so we may return to him; "... for no unclean thing can enter the Kingdom of God." Through Christ's atonement we can be healed of all things both spiritual and temporal. To know that the gospel is restored in this dispensation to bring to pass ordinances uplifts me and reminds me that God is continually looking out for His children. I continue to learn from Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ day by day as I read my scriptures and pray. I love this gospel, and those are but a few reasons as to why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Currently, I have devoted 18 months of my life in serving the Lord, and helping others come unto Christ by helping them recieve the restored gospel theough faith in the Jesus Christ and His atonement, repentance, baptism, recieving the gift of the holy ghost and enduring to the end. I rely on the guidance of the spirit to know how I can love like Christ loves. I also try and develope Christ like attributes, no worries I am not perfect, by reading my scriptures, praying with real intent and try to encompass those attributes by appling them in my life and different cirrcumstances I encounter.

In whom should we have faith?

We should have faith in the God the Eternal Father and in His son Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
