Hi I'm Kim Smith

I love sports, music, and the outdoors. I'm serving a mission in California, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Utah, but I grew up in a small town in Vermont. I have 2 older brothers, 2 younger brothers, and a younger sister. My parents are awesome and I love them so much. I love to play sports, mainly basketball, field hockey, and softball. Music is a very big part of my life. I love to sing very much, and I play the piano a little. I'm a high school graduate and I'm a freshman in college. I plan to major in Biology, but that could change. I like all kinds of music and I like to ride motorcycles, but I am putting all of this on hold to serve a year and a half mission in California. I will be the third one in my family to serve a full-time mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was 8 years old, but there came a time when I needed to decide for myself whether or not I wanted to be a part of this church. As I continued to study the Bible and also the Book or Mormon, I knelt down in prayer to ask our Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon was true and if this church was the church of Jesus Christ. I received an answer to my prayers and know that this is God's church on the earth and it is for everyone. I invite you to find out for yourself as well by reading the Book of Mormon, attending one of our services, and then, most importantly, pray about it.

How I live my faith

I was the chorister for the children that are ages 5-11 at my church. I was given 20 minutes every Sunday to teach them new songs, practice songs we already know, play games, and prepare to sing for others. I still love all the kids so much and I really enjoy hearing them sing. The songs we sing are simple and easy to learn which makes it more fun when learning them. There is a wide variety in songs that can include all the age groups. I am now a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am serving in the California Ventura Mission and I am very excited to share all I know about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am very grateful for this opportunity and I will serve the Lord in any way I can.
