Hi I'm Kylee Dayton

I grew up in Utah. I am a student at BYU-I. I love to smile. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I just love everything about life! One thing I love is meeting new people. I love making friends and doing fun things. Growing up in Utah has helped me come to love being in the outdoors and in the mountains. I am big into hiking and anything outdoors like rock-climbing, boating, and I love long-boarding! I was able to run cross country in high school and I love running. Summer is my favorite season just because there is so much to do and star gazing on summer nights is the best. I also love having bonfires with friends and family and singing together. I love music and I love to play the piano. I have played for about 9 years and I have come to learn that music has a big effect on all of us. I am going to college at Brigham Young University-Idaho right now and am studying to become an interior designer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because being a mormon makes me truly happy. I have grown up a mormon my whole life, but of course there was that time in my life when I wanted to know for myself if this church was really the true church of God. I decided I was going to do a little experiment. One night, I decided I really wanted to know the truth for myself so I was going to seek it out. I decided I would read the whole Book of Mormon and then pray about it. I was also going to do everything I could to follow the teachings that were in the Book of Mormon and see what happened and see how I felt. Over the next few months, I read a few chapters of the Book of Mormon every morning before I went to school and said my prayers. I noticed my life took a jurassic change for the better. I got straight A's in school and was succeeding in everything I did. My life was being so blessed and every day I could see the blessings and happiness that came from following the teachings that were in the Book of Mormon. As I finished the Book of Mormon, I knew it was true because of all the blessings that were coming from following its teachings. I know this church is true and it brings true joy and happiness. Life isn't always going to be perfect and everyone goes through their own challenges, but I know and have seen that following this gospel sure makes life a lot easier and happier.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day by following my personal standards and standing up for what I believe in through my example. I go to church every week on sunday for three hours and I am also a teacher and lead the gospel discussions in my sunday school class. I am a very happy person and I love to smile. I just want to share my happiness and smile with others and I want others around me to feel the same happiness I do from living this gospel. I also follow all of the commandments the Lord has asked me to follow and I know by following these commandments, I am guilt free and I can truly say that I am as happy as I am right now because I follow those guide lines. I am less stressed, less worrisome, and have so much more hope and a much more positive outlook on life because of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
