Hi I'm Kohl

I grew up in Blackfoot, Idaho. I love the outdoors and hanging out with friends, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I served my LDS mission in the mission Villahermosa, Mexico. I am currently attending BYU-I and am majoring in Political Science. I love sports and love to play the piano. I also love to spend time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the gospel is true, and I always have. The church has always held a special place in my heart. I love the generosity and kindness of the church to all of its members. It's always felt right to be a part of this church.

How I live my faith

I was very involved in the scouting program when I was younger. I received my eagle scout award, and I also served many leadership positions in my youth groups as president in those groups.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Joseph Smith was the first prophet of the restoration of the church of God in these days. Following the death of Christ and the rest of the apostles up to John, there was a Great Apostasy. This means that the power of God to perform miracles, healing, and baptism was taken from the earth. This power called the priesthood wasn't restored again until the prophet Joseph Smith. Joseph when he was 14 saw God the Father and Jesus Christ. They told him that he would be the new prophet in these days. With the help of God he was able to translate ancient records from prophets of old called the Book of Mormon. Through this book, all may come unto Christ and know that it is the truth for themselves.
