Hi I'm Kira

I fence. The kind with swords (aka the fun version). I love reading and writing and all kinds of art. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student, working to find what I want my future to be like. I love fencing, all of the arts and being in nature, appreciating the creations God placed on Earth. I also really love science and biology, which is actually my major. Many may stare at the combination of religion and science, thinking the two aren't possibly compatible, but I have found that many times they support each other. Studying the sciences bring me to have an even greater appreciation for the beauty and miracle of life that is on Earth.

Why I am a Mormon

I truly feel happy and enjoy being a member of this church. I know that Jesus Christ live and loves me and each and every one of us. He knows us by name. I am a Mormon because I have come to learn that I can have a relationship with God, and that he is willing to help us all find what is true, and there is truth here. I believe that where truth is, God is also. I have found and been taught a lot of truth and I treasure it. The truth isn't something blindly accepted. I have tested the principles taught and found joy and peace despite many difficult times. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Because of my love for science and animals, I volunteered at my local zoo for a few summers and thoroughly enjoyed being able to teach adults and children alike about the wonderful animals that are throughout the world. It has been the highlight of my high school years and has led me to consider teaching Biology. I also enjoy visiting the elderly in local retirement homes and taking some time to get to know these people. I love and appreciate others opinions, even if they differ from my own so please don't be afraid to speak up! Living my faith, is just living, living how Christ would; treating everybody fairly and being respectful.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

The beauty, perfection and complexity that is apparent in everything around us. Take things to a cellular level or an atomic level and instead of being "simpler" it is nearly, if not more, complex than the entire human body! There is so much that exists that couldn't be chance alone. If one were to put raw energy into an area that had wood, wool, water and pigments, it wouldn't result in the Mona Lisa. Somebody would need to organize and direct that energy specifically to result in a masterpiece like the Mona Lisa and to a greater much more complex extent: life and the planet Earth.
