Hi I'm Kylie Goodwin

I grew up in Colorado. I am an English major who loves to write, read and sing; and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Mesa Arizona and lived we there until I was four. Then we took a pit stop in Iowa for a few years before moving to Colorado where I have lived a majority of my life. I am the third of four daughters. I am currently attending BYU-Idaho and I am studying English with an emphasis in creative writing. I love the outdoors, I love to backpack and sleep out underneath the stars. I love to read and write and I hope to write stories that will one day find home on many bookshelves.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the faith but I was truly converted my freshman year of high school. One day at school I lost the ability to walk. I asked to go to the office because I wasn't feeling well, when I stood to walk I fell over. I was the class clown and so my classmates thought I was joking around. I crawled out of the room embarrassed and confused and even after the door shut I could hear the kids laughing. I went to my doctor the next day still unable to walk correctly -though walking at all was an improvement since the previous day-. She was incredibly concerned and she sent my mother and I to the E.R. My family is blessed with good health and this is the first time we had ever needed to go to the hospital for anything other than our births. I was scared and every second that a doctor wasn't asking me a question I was praying. I talked with multiple doctors all of different practices. Things like 'Multiple Sclerosis' and 'stroke' were tossed around as a possible diagnosis. I was only fourteen. The nurses told me I would have to have a spinal tap to check the fluid in my spine. For the first time in my life I had felt the spirit so strongly, I felt comforted and sure when I told them that I wouldn't need any needle coming towards me. I had an MRI taken of my entire spine ans well as my brain. They discovered it was an L5-S1 bulging disc that had inflamed and pinched the nerves to my legs. I ended up going through physical therapy and even though they told me I would never backpack, jump or run ever again I knew the Lord was on my side. And now today, I do all of the things the doctors said I never would. Every second of that experience I felt the Lords love and comfort. The Lord loves me and I love him!

How I live my faith

I am blessed to be called and assigned as a teacher for women in the church.
