Hi I'm Karen

I grew up in Utah. I am a student at Brigham Young University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing sports, being outside, and going on adventures. I love working with others toward their goal or a goal we share in common. I love trying new things and going to new places. I work my hardest till the end.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member my whole life was pretty hard at the beginning. There were several mistakes that I made, but I decided that I am no longer going to look on the past and what happened back then. I gained my Testimony in College thanks to an amazing roommate who was an example to me. I followed her example; I started to read my scriptures. I started to Pray. I started to understand what I had been taking for granted for so long. I was on a search for happiness, and I found it through living the Gospel. Through looking to Christ and the Example he has set for me. Through sharing the Gospel with others, through looking to the future and knowing that I can live with my Heavenly Father again, that I am a child of God; this is where my happiness comes from. The Past does not matter. What I do today and tomorrow does. Anyone and Everyone can change. Even if it is based on just a desire to believe I know change can happen. I know that my Redeemer lives. He died and was resurrected to save each and every one of us because he loves us for who we are and wants us to return to him. I believe that Joseph Smith restored this Gospel and that it is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. . The Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ and it along with the Bible has brought me a greater understanding and love for the Savior. I know the Joy and Happiness that this gospel brings to those who accept it. I know that through the Light of Christ in all of us that we can be an example to all.

How I live my faith

I try my best to show love towards those around me and to include them in everything I do. I love to smile and making people laugh and enjoy life. Through being happy and being a good example to others is how I show my faith. I am also currently serving a mission in West Virginia.
