Hi I'm Dallas Kennedy

I'm am a missionary in the Arizona Scottsdale Mission. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love sports. I am a Eagle Scout. I am the youngest of 4 children. I love music. I attended BYU-Provo. I am currently serving a mission for my church in the Arizona Scottsdale Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because there is a certain peace that you get from being in this church. When you accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ and realize the amazing blessings that came from his sacrifice. God has brought a modern day prophet onto the earth again. The Prophet is able to bring modern day revelation that is relevant to us as a people. There are blessings that come from following the Prophet and Gods teachings. We are able to receive personal revelation from God when we ask him in prayer and search the scriptures. The priesthood that was used in the days of Jesus and before then have been brought back onto the earth. With the priesthood we are able to make covenants with the Lord, be baptized, be sealed to our families in the temple, and much more. I love this church so much and the peace it brings to me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to serve as much as I can. When I serve I feel better about myself and learn how I fall into Gods plan for me by helping others. Nothing beats working hard for someone else when it makes yourself and others happy. It gives you a sense of purpose and peace in your heart. I live my faith by trying to emulate Jesus and how he dealt with people. I try to be kind to all I come in contact with. I try not to judge on outward appearance but on what is in there heart. I try to show love to everyone I come in contact with.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Dallas Kennedy
God has called prophets to lead His Church in our day, just as He did anciently. The current prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Thomas S. Monson. He is assisted by two counselors—Henry B. Eyring and Dieter F. Uctdorf. Together, they make up the First Presidency of the Church (much like Peter, James, and John after Christ’s death). All members of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are apostles and prophets. The current Apostles are: Russell M. Nelson Dallin H. Oaks M. Russell Ballard Robert D. Hales Jeffrey R. Holland David A. Bednar Quentin L. Cook D. Todd Christofferson Neil L. Andersen Ronald A. Rasband Gary E. Stevenson Dale G. Renlund Show more Show less
