Hi I'm Ka'imiloa Ruberson

I am half-Hawaiian, half-Scottish. Singing is my absolute passion, and is what I want to pursue in life. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My whole life has been centered around music. Even from a young age I felt that music was such a HUGE part of me, and would most definitely be in my future! I went to Brigham Young University in Provo to study vocal performance, or in other words Opera. It is exactly what I wanted, and I know that the Lord is putting me on this path! I am currently serving my mission in Ribeirão Preto, Brazil and am loving every minute of it!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because to me, this Gospel just makes ABSOLUTE sense. It is a simple concept that I have just known to be true. The Gospel is all about happiness, families, and love. These core principles are so beautiful to me, and ring so true that I can barely contain my love for God and his children. I have had my trials and tribulations, and that leads me to my favorite part of the Gospel, the Atonement! Being able to be redeemed and forgiven of my sins is amazing to me! I love this Gospel!

How I live my faith

As a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I get to show my faith every day by inviting others to come unto Christ! I read the Book of Mormon, Preach my Gospel, and other books that bring the Spirit! Being a missionary takes A LOT of faith and is incredibly hard, but is one of the most fulfilling ways that I can show my Heavenly Father that I want to be a loyal son of Him!

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Ka'imiloa Ruberson
We believe that all will have the opportunity to accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ, whether it be in this life or the next. If someone passes on, without having those saving ordinances done in this life, they can't do it for themselves as spirits. Thus we, acting as a proxy, are baptized in their place by the proper authority. Once the baptism is done, the soul on the other side that you were baptized in place for will have the opportunity to either accept or reject the baptism. Show more Show less
