Hi I'm Kaili

I'm from North Carolina. I'm a student at Southern Virginia University. I'm a soon-to-be missionary and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 19 years old and have grown up in North Carolina. I have 5 siblings and two wonderful parents. I am a sophomore at Southern Virginia University and I recently received a mission call to Salt Lake City!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the LDS faith and was baptized on my 8th birthday, but that is not why I am a Mormon today. Throughout my life I have made an effort to find out for myself if I believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is truly the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. My conversion was not something that happened in an instant, but rather it has been a gradual process. For as long as I can remember I have believed in the doctrines of this gospel, but I would say that I truly began to gain my own testimony around the age of 11 when I read The Book of Mormon straight through for the first time right. I have read the book since and each time I gain a stronger testimony that it truly is inspired by God, just like The Bible. Knowing that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and knows me individually has made such a difference in my life, as well as knowing that Jesus Christ lives and is my Savior and through him I can be forgiven of my sins and find peace in this life. The truths of the gospel make this life so much more meaningful and fulfilling for me. I am so excited to serve my mission and share with others the happiness that the gospel of Jesus Christ has brought into my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently living my faith by preparing to serve an 18 month mission starting in August :)
