Hi I'm Kayla Hansen

I'm from Utah. I am serving a mission in Tempe Arizona. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am nineteen years old and have gone to one semester of college. I am majoring in Elementary Education. I enjoy working with children and I have nannied for about 5 years now. I love to dance, be with my friends and family, sports, hike, snowboard, cook, babysit, really anything active. And I absolutely love fashion and clothes!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, and I am so grateful that I was. I am grateful to live in a place that there is a LDS building in almost every neighborhood. I am grateful to have so many people that surround me be of the same faith. Just because I live in Utah and was born into this religion does not mean that I don't have my own conversion story. It has always been important for me to keep my standards high and to stand for what I believe in because a lot of people don't. It is important to me to be an example of the believers and to strive for the truth. I have had many examples in my life that have made me who I am today, whether they were the good examples or the bad examples, I chose how I wanted my life to turn out. I choose to have eternal happiness, I choose to follow the right, I choose to go to church activities, I choose who my friends are, I choose to serve the Lord, and I choose to be a Mormon. I am a Mormon because I know that Christ lives and that he died for each one of us. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ know and love everyone. I know that Joseph Smith restored the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that the Book of Mormon is true because I have read it and have felt the Holy Ghost testify it's truth. I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by setting an example. I live my faith by showing my love for everyone and for God. I live my faith by leaving my home and family to serve a LDS Mission in Tempe Arizona, to guide others to the light of Christ. To show people the happiness I have gotten from the gospel and to include them into my happiness.
