Hi I'm Karlissa Bradley

I love simple and happy things and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a BYU student studying to be a Speech Pathologist. I love: yoga, hiking, laughing, running, bouldering and rock climbing, celebrating people, cooking, sewing, and spending time with my family and friends. I was born and raised in Utah and served a mission in Chicago, Illinois. Serving a mission was one of the greatest experiences I have had because I felt so close to the Savior. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that His love for each of us is infinite.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me closer to Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon and Bible, together, help me understand His character, role, and my purpose on earth. I read the Book of Mormon, prayed, and asked God if it was true. Just as Moroni promised, I came to know "by the power of the Holy Ghost" (Moroni 3:5) that its words are true and that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. The Book of Mormon's purpose is to testify of Jesus Christ & His Atonement. This is His gospel and He is so anxious to help us become better people and return to Gods presence. Everything in this gospel has blessed my life and brought me closer to God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively participate in the gospel of Jesus Christ. I strive to keep the commandments, pray, and read my scriptures. As I do these things, I am able to feel the influence of the Holy Ghost in my life which frequently confirms the reality of Christ's restored Church. I live my faith by serving those around me. President Gordon B. Hinckley said, “The best antidote I know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served.” Through serving others we can forget about ourselves and be a light to those around us.
