Hi I'm Kaylen

I grew up in Idaho and Utah. I love to wrestle ,run cross country and any other sports. I'm 19 years old. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love doing anything crazy and active. In High School i did wrestling, track, and cross country. Some of my hobbies are rock climbing, uni-cycling, ultimate frisbee, hiking, and pretty much anything else that's fun. My dream in life is to jump out of airplanes. I still don't know what i plan to do in life but I'm not too worried. I just want to do the best i can with what i have and be happy doing it.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and everyone always just told me it was true but as I got older and I started to get ready for my mission I realized I was relying on other peoples testimonies and not my own. So I started to pray that I would gain a testimony. I kept praying for a couple weeks and I felt like I wasn't getting any answers to my prayers. One night as I was just laying down in bed I realized I wanted a testimony but I wanted God to just give it to me and I wasn't doing anything to earn it. The next day I woke up and prayed some more asking God for help. I tried being kinder to my brothers and sisters and helping my mom out. I brought my scriptures to work and read them during break. Before I went to bed at night I read them again. After about a week of this i was praying again and just felt the Spirit so strong that I started to cry and I knew that God loved me. I know it doesn't seem like some great miracle or anything but for me at that time it was the most important thing in the world. Just knowing that some one loved me and cared about me. It was the answer to my prayers. Ever since then I've known the church is true and it helped my be able to decide to serve a mission. I know that if you pray and ask God he can help you just like he has helped me and so many others.

How I live my faith

At this time in my life i have the wonderful opportunity to serve a full time mission. Its the one time in my life where I can devote all of my time to serving God and everyone around me. Every day I get to go talk to people about Jesus and about the Book of Mormon. And whenever we aren't teaching we are serving.
