Hi I'm Kira Hale

I live in Florida. I am the mother of 8, 6 living and 2 deceased. I prefer to be called LDS.

About Me

I am a stay at home mom with 8 fabulous kids. I am married to a wonderful man. Sam is my best friend and eternal companion. Together we have been through many trials and triumphs in our short 12 yr marriage. Our faith in the Lord has carried us and continues to be a source of strength for us. Our children are our world. They are the most precious gift from our Heavenly Father. I am so happy that He has blessed me with them. I am in the process of building a little home based jewelry business. I love pink, yellow and purple. I am a daughter of God. I am LDS(mormon). I love sharing the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I so enjoy being a member missionary. I love crafting and singing. In Oct. 06 we suffered a great lose in our little family. At the time I only had 4 kids. We were coming home from a church function and our car was hit by a speeding jeep, causing the instant death of my 2 oldest girls. This experience drew me even more closer to the Lord and to the Temple covenants I made with Him and my husband. I know that through these covenants we are an eternal family and will be made whole through the resurrection.

Why I am a Mormon

That is an easy question with a very short answer. Everything about this gospel is TRUE. From the Book of Mormon, to the Temple and everything in between, I have received countless witnesses that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ and that this is His Church.

How I live my faith

I am the Media Specialist for the sisters group in my ward. I get to share inspirational quotes, videos or thoughts at each the monthly meeting, we have. It is wonderful to be able to help my sisters grow in the gospel in a small and simple way. I am currently doing a 40 day/40 night reading challenge that involves reading the Bible and The Book of Mormon together. I share anything that inspires me, uplifts me or touches me spiritually through my facebook timeline. I have a group on there devoted to gospel living and learning how to grow in the gospel. I am also currently working on the same personal gospel growth requirements the young women are working on. It is great to be able to participate in the projects and simple acts of gospel learning as them. As a family we attend church every Sunday, unless we are ill and participate as much as we can in any activity that may draw us closer to the Savior. I love bearing my testimony on Fast Sunday. I am an avid reader of the scriptures, even before I began the challenge I am currently doing. I always have LDS music playing in our home to bring the Spirit and bring peace here. I strive every day to be kind and show Christ-like love and compassion to others, within the walls of my home and without.
