Hi I'm Kagan

Send me anywhere that has water and a place for adventures. All I need is my family and friends and I'm good. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I graduated high school in 2010 and have been going to school out in California but put it on hold while I serve my mission to St. Louis Missouri. I enjoy Spending time with my family and friends, hanging out at the pool and just enjoying the outdoors. Anything with a board i love whether its wake boarding, long boarding, or snowboarding. In fact anything outdoors I love. Through the process of getting my Eagle Scout I have loved spending time camping and enjoying the outdoors. I swam for all four years of high school and one year of college and also enjoy football, lacrosse, and baseball. My favorite sports teams are the San Francisco Giants and the San Francisco 49ers. I like to be very social and will talk to anyone. Not afraid to try new things and enjoy making new friends and having new experiences.

Why I am a Mormon

That is a great question. I have always grown up a mormon and never reall thought about why but now that I think of it I'd have to say that I am a mormon because I believe that the teachings and the Church are true and I know that Joseph Smith is a true Prophet of God. If I didnt know that I wouldnt be serving a mission. I know that I am the person that I am today because of the church and how I was raised. If I wasnt raised in the church who knows where or what kind of person I'd be and who knows if I'd be ofrtunate enough to have the friends and family and support that I have. Without the Church I dont think that Id be able to say I am as friendly and hard working and find joy in so many litte things that I do because I would be a completely different person. I know that Im am supposed to be In Missouri and I know there will be people there that only I can help find the truth and joy of the Gospel and I cant wait to meet them and make a difference.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be better everyday. Im not perfect but I like for people to look at me and get a good impression and leave them thinking that theres something about me that always keeps a smile on my face. If they were to asl Id say its because of the things that Ive learned by being a mormon and following the faith. I love helping other people and doing service that puts a smile on their face or warms their heart because it makes me feel amazing knowing that I can help somebody else and not be all about myself. All through high school and college i have loved lending a hand and helping out anyway I can through the city, the Church, and at work. Right now my calling is as a Missionary and i am so excited to go serve the Lord and show the people of St. Loius why I always have this smile and what they can do to have their own.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Absolutely! The scriptures say that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Therefore if thats the case why wouldn't he have a prophet to lead us and guide us in the world today? Prophets of old such as Noah, Abraham, and Moses didnt know of the things we have in the world today like gun control, divorce, and the internet. There are so many things that have changed in the world that require a voice to lead us and councel us as to what to look for and be aware of! I absolutely know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God and his words do teach us how to stay safe and live happily in this life! Show more Show less
