Hi I'm Kiefer Halterman

I grew up in UTAH, I love playing sports, being outdoors and Sharing the Gospel!! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have Grown up with a deep love for adventure and excitement; Learning and exploring new things and places have made a Huge impact on my personal relationship with my Heavenly Father. I have always loved playing sports of every kind and I think the lessons that we can learn from working with others and by ourselves to achieve something, like a winning season, or practicing and refining our skills teaches us great things that will impact the rest of our lives. I love to Think and study and create things, and I am grateful for little moments in life; like watching the sun set and the sky turn into night. I have always been drawn to the outdoors and love to be in them; Hiking and camping and climbing, I love to fish and I love to see new places. I truly feel a power in knowing that all the beauty around us has come from a higher Being; our Heavenly Father! and All the beauty and amazing places have been created for US and our JOY! I love God and His plan for Me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in Christ Church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, which He established himself, that holds all the Truth and power which will lead us back to God. I love the principle taught by Christ in John 7:17."If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself". I have taken this to heart and Lived this Gospel in search of Truth, and now after much prayer and study and Living the principles taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, God has shown me through many ways that it is true; His Holy Spirit has impacted my life and lead me to everything that is Good! and full of light! It has made my life Beautiful! and opened my eyes, and I can feel God Leading me. I Love the Scriptures witch God has given us, and I have studied them and continue to, and always will. They Hold the words of eternal life; they give us examples of life and teaches us how we can come to know our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon as well because I believe that God still talks to man, and not only through scripture. Scripture is given to man by inspiration through the spirit of God. God has again restored His order on the earth and leads His Church through Prophets and Apostles. We can know if more scripture has been revealed and if the church of God has again been established, and if the men called to lead it truly are ordained Prophets and Apostles if we Search these things out in our mind and ASK GOD! He will answer; He answered me and that is why I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

I have from my youth been blessed with great parents, leaders and friends who have always been there to teach me all they can about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and what He personally has done for me. When I started to really start to find many of the truths they would talk about for myself, I felt a great need to do as the Savior would have me do and live the best way that I could. I believe that our actions speak louder than words. I have always lived as best as i could but not without having to learn things the hard way. when i turned 18 I left to Houston Texas as a missionary and for two years worked on the streets teaching and preaching and bearing my testimony of the Savior to all i could find. It was Jesus Christ that we hoped they would see in us. We knew that without His Love and sacrifice that we would not be the people that we are today, and not have the perspective that we have of the world if we had not turned our lives to the Savior. so as missionaries our hope and goal was to turn others to Christ. I have now come home from my mission in Texas but I still share the Gospel everyday! by word and by deed. I love my life because Jesus Christ has given me perspective and Joy! This life is meant to be happy and life lived with a High goals. Following Christ becomes a lifestyle and when we are happy, others around us will fill it and want to be happy. Its what people fill that leads them to change. if we can get them to fill the love and peace that comes from living with Faith and Hope in Christ, they will, on their own recognize the things in their life that they need to change. I always try to live a happy life and I want to let people know why I am so Happy. Matthew 11:28-30
