Hi I'm Kendahl

I love to play the piano. I love to sing. I love to dance. I am a twin, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to play the piano, it allows me to contemplate on my life and express my emotions through music. I also love to dance, although it has been very challenging to me. (I have had 5 surgeries on each of my feet.) Learning to dance has not only taught me about dance, but it has taught me how to deal with hard things, and overcoming life's many obstacles. Without the support and comfort that my faith has given me, I would not have been able to overcome such difficult obstacles.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon (LDS) because my mother decided to, at the age of 16, become a member of the church. Because my mother's family was not LDS, it was a big step for her and for me. I am so thankful my mother decided to accept the gospel, and raise her family with the love, peace, and strength that her faith brought. I am also a Mormon because I have accepted the gospel of my own free will. I have felt the love that my Savior Jesus Christ has for me, and I have felt the love that my Heavenly Father has for me. I know I am a daughter of a God. I know that everyone on this Earth is a son/daughter of God, and I know that He loves each and every one of us; regardless of spiritual or physical limitations. Because I know that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ (our heavenly brother) love me, I know that they, like an earthly family, want what is best for me. I have also felt a feeling, one that is stronger than any other that I have felt, that the LDS church is true and contains the fullness of the gospel. I know that anyone who asks for the same knowledge will be given it. James 1:5 "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.". I have asked in prayer, and I have received answers to my prayers.

How I live my faith

I was born and raised into an LDS home. However, it took me until my teenage years to really question what I believed, and further, learn how to gain my own personal knowledge and testimony of the LDS church- and to no longer have to lean on my parents faith. When I started to acquire my own testimony of my faith, I began to live it with new dedication. I live the teachings and commandments set forth, ultimately, by God through his servants, the living prophets. Although I often stumble 'spiritually', I know that I have the power and strength to 'get back up' through the mercy of God's forgiving power. I will also be living my faith by serving a mission in Guatemala. I am blessed to have this opportunity to serve my church.
