Hi I'm Kinsey

I love music, camping, and longboarding. I'm serving in the Oregon Salem Mission. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in the Oregon Salem Mission. Missions can be one of the greatest, hardest things you can do! I have learned so much of my Savoir and how He loves me. I am from Utah and I have never lived outside of Utah until my mission. I love to go camping, long boarding, paint, pretty much anything crafty or anything that has to do with volleyball. I plan on majoring in Chemistry Education at Brigham Young University- Idaho. I love chemistry and how they all work and fit together. I hope to one day be a teacher in a high school.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up the in the LDS church, but we all are converts when we join. I went through a point in my life in my teens questioning weather the church I was born into and I knew all my life was the right one to be in. I studied to Bible and the Book of Mormon to try and find the answer. Through a long period of time, lots of discussions, and praying, I know that Heavenly Father wants me to return to Him. I know He has a body and loves us and we are everything to Him. I have come to understand that I must work the best I can to get back to Him to live with Him again and to bring my family with me and for them to know the happiness I know. I hope to spread my happiness to the world and bring everyone back to our Heavenly Father. Satan will do anything so that people will not accept the true Gospel. When I was searching and looking for answers and when I turned to the LDS church, I would always have a hard time in my life. I would have bad days and bad things would happen to me. That is when I realized that Satan was trying to stop me when I looked more into the LDS church. When Satan didn't want me to truly follow Jesus Christ. he would throw something at me that it would make it hard for me to pray or read. But I knew that if I continued, I would prevail. That is exactly what happened. I am now a missionary for the Lord!!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by example and doing what the Lord has asked me to do. I try to be like Him in kindness. I want to grow closer to Him as by brother, and in order to do that, I must pray and read my scriptures. Every time I do, I know that He is listening to my heart and my desires and helps me with my dreams. I have recently been called to serve an LDS Mission. I will be going to the Oregon Salem Mission and I leave 13th November 2013. I am very excited to help the Elders and Sisters out there. I know that the Lord needs me there for the people I will work with, or the people I will teach. But I know that I am sent there as a messenger of God to help bring people closer to Jesus Christ.

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Yes, Christ did come to the Americas and preach unto them His gospel. He teaches them the same thing which he taught throughout his whole minstery in Jerusalem. "And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I misty bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, one shepherd." St. John 10:16. In this scripture in the New Testiment, speaks of other "sheep". Meaning that there are other people in the world who he must teach. Christ was talking about the people in the Book of Mormon.
