Hi I'm Kandace

I grew up in Arizona and I Love Theatre and performing!! I am a Kindergarten Aide and I am a Mormon!

About Me

Hey!! I am a fairly simple girl!! I love crafting, sewing, and painting!! I have been a Theatre Major in college and have almost completed my associates degree! I Love Theatre and all that that entails!! I am leaning towards being a teacher of some sort whether it be in Theatre or a reading specialist at an elementary school. I am currently working with kinder kids as a title one aide or an instructional aide. I am not currently married and I have no children, I am just living life and loving every minute of it!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and I lived through some trials that shook my faith and caused me to not believe in the church for a very long time! A little while ago I had a reality check and realized my life wasn't going the way I wanted it to and I was very unhappy and depressed. It was dragging me down and I was in so much emotional turmoil I didn't know what to do. So I went to church. I felt the spirit begin to light a little flame in my heart and decided to talk to my bishop about what I had been feeling. He asked me to pray and read my scriptures daily and if I committed to that he knew I'd see a difference. He was right!! I went home that night and read my scriptures. I prayed for guidance and was amazed at the transformation I felt and saw in my self! I was happy!! I mean REALLY Happy!! That was something I hadn't felt since I was a little girl! So I kept it up! When I would read my scriptures, I ate it up!! I wanted to read more, I wanted to know more!! I would be in church and I would answer questions and I would feel the spirit and know that I had said the truth and that I was hearing the truth, because the Spirit testified to me that It was truth!!! I know without a doubt that this church is the true church and that nothing compares to how I feel when I am doing the things that it teaches. I can feel the spirit when I am doing what I am supposed to be doing and when I don't, I can feel the difference. I know my Heavenly Father Loves me and I know that His son Jesus Christ suffered and died for me! I Love this Church and without a single doubt in my mind....I Love being a Mormon!!

How I live my faith

I am the Linger Longer Chairman in my singles branch. This basically means that every first Sunday when we all get together after church I coordinate and supervise the set up of meals for the other singles and we mingle and get to know each other better. It is a social activity over food which always makes everyone happy!! (especially after not eating all day!!) I also am a Visiting Teacher!! I have the opportunity of getting to know some wonderful women and becoming friends with them. I am there to help them and make their lives a little brighter through the spirit of the Lord. One thing I've noticed is that if one person can know that another one cares for them, it lifts their mood and brightens their day just a little bit more!
