Hi I'm Kayli Edgington

I am 20 years old. I am serving my mission in Washington Spokane. I enjoy being outdoors or playing sports. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am serving a mission in the Washington Spokane Mission. I served the first part of my mission in England Leeds Mission until I had health problems and had to go home. Later on I was able to return to the mission and that is why I am in Washington right now. I love getting to make other people happy. I love trying to focus on the positives of things instead of the negative, even though sometimes that is really hard. I have a very big family. There is 7 kids in the family. 5 brothers and 2 girls. We have a very active and fun household. Some of the hobbies that i have would have to be anything with sports. In high school I was on the Swim team, Golf team, Lacrosse team, Debate team. I love doing anything that is active. When I get home from my mission I want to go into becoming a special education teacher. If I could spend all the free time I had with the special education students I would. In high school I was a peer tutor for special education students. My heart is always soften towards them.

Why I am a Mormon

I have so many different reasons why I am a Mormon but the main reason to me is because I know without a doubt that this is the true church. I am prayed so many different times to know if this is true and right church and I have received my answer. I have been born in a family that is part of the LDS church but they give me the option to find out for myself if this is the right church for me. I have a testimony of this gospel. I know that Joseph Smith restored this gospel for us today. I know that Heavenly Father loves each and everyone of us and is with us through out every step of our lives. I know that Jesus Christ died for each and everyone of us on the cross so that we could live with God again. I feel so blessed to be apart of this gospel and be apart of his work. This gospel has brought me so much direction in my life. It gives us the answers to life's important questions. It makes me so happy. I love being apart of a church is focuses a lot on charity and giving to others. I don't know where I would be without this gospel. These are only a few reasons of why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Right now I am on a mission and I have been out for about 14 months. I love getting to share this gospel with everyone I come in contact with. This gospel is so special. So many people are looking for truth and it is so great that we get to share that with everyone. Ways that I live my faith is by continually going to church, reading the scriptures which are God's words and praying. I know that through prayer God can give us guidance and peace. He wants us to turn to him to find answers. There is so many things we can do to show our faith to God, and one of those is by keeping his commandments. He gives us commandments to keep us safe. He can see the big picture and we can't but if we do all we can to follow him, he will help us. As we continue to find ways to serve of Heavenly Father he will bless us. He has promised us that and he will not let us down. I know that as we take a step back and let God lead us to along the journey of this life, it will be so much easier than us trying to do it ourselves. We just need to show God that we trust Him and have faith in Him and good things to come. "When we are not going through trials we are not growing!"
