Hi I'm Kylie

I am a college student at Utah State University, and I am currently on a mission!

About Me

I am a student at Utah State University in Logan Utah! I am studying nursing and psychology. I have been called to serve in the Oregon Portland Mission and I am beyond excited to serve those people who need me there. I have been a member my whole life and I love this gospel so much!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the gospel to be true. I love it so much! I am a Mormon because God has given me a chance to live by Christ's example and to love everyone around me! I love this church because I know I am not perfect and God knows it, yet He loves me anyway! He loves everyone on this earth without a shadow of a doubt. I am a Mormon because this is not the imperfect church for perfect people, it is the perfect church for imperfect people. We all have our faults, but through Christ's Atonement we can be changed and we can strive to be the best we can be. Christ is our advocate, he died for me and for you. Through the Atonement I have been changed. I used to be depressed, angry at the world and those who hurt me. At the time I hadn't realized it, but I was someone who I never wanted to be. I had hit the lowest point in my life. I realized I needed to make some changes in my life. I needed to forgive those who had hurt me. I needed to learn how to love myself and others again. I knew I couldn't do it alone, so I turned to my beloved Savior, Jesus Christ. With His help, I was able to dig myself out of the pity hole I had made for myself. It took some time, but I have learned to love myself again and I learned to love those around me. I started my mission papers, and got my call to Portland, and I have never been happier. I am a Mormon because Jesus Christ saved me. He saved me from the endless torment I was putting myself through. Through His Atonement He can help us through any situation we may be in. He will leave the ninety and nine to find you. He loves you more than you or I even know. I am a Mormon because of God's tender mercies. I am a Mormon because His love is what saved me, and it will save you too.

How I live my faith

At college I am on my own! I don't have my Aunt and Uncle telling me to get up every Sunday to go to church anymore. While I am at school I have been able to live my faith by going to church every single Sunday and have the wonderful opportunity to partake of the sacrament. Partaking of the sacrament every Sunday reminds of me of the promises I have made to God! I have been preparing to serve a mission in Portland, Oregon and it has helped my faith grow immensely! I read my scriptures everyday, I study and ponder them so that I may know how to better teach and serve those who will be in my mission. I try to follow in Jesus Christ's footsteps by serving those around me! Whether it be complimenting a stranger I pass by or helping someone with their homework. By being an example, I live by my faith! I love to reach out to people when they are having a bad day. I pray to our Heavenly Father when I may not feel that I am strong enough. He answers my prayers daily and I am so thankful for that! He is what keeps me going everyday, He is what helps me to live by faith!
