Hi I'm Kennedy Cornwall

I'm a dreamer. I'm a writer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student, studying English education at BYU-Idaho. I live to write and I write to live. One day I plan on getting published, but today is not that day! I also enjoy acting, singing, and watching movies. I love to laugh and I try my hardest to focus on the happier side of life. If you can't laugh about yourself, what else is there to laugh about?

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a teenager, I went through a really major rebellious streak. I fell far and I felt worthless. I gave up and lost so much, living as the world would have me live. I knew that the church was true, I just chose not to follow the statutes and principles that I had been taught my whole life. That caused so much misery that often I thought that I would much rather give up than continue feeling so sad. One evening, I fell to my knees and offered a heartfelt prayer to my Father in Heaven. I begged him to just let me know that he loved me, even though I had done so much wrong. Immediately I felt the most amazing thing in the entire world. The air grew heavy around me and I felt a pair of arms embracing me. My chest burned and my entire body tingled. That was when I knew that no matter what I did, he would always love me. I went in to my bishop the next Sunday and repented. Through the gift of the atonement, I was fully healed of all heartbreak and sorrow that came from the burden of my sins. Today, I'm happier than I've ever been. Being a member of the church has brought me so much happiness, and I promise that it is the true church of God, restored on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I've noticed that a lot of my callings have revolved around music, so I live my faith through music. I've served as the ward chorister and the primary music leader. I want nothing more than to be an instrument in my Father's hands, and to bring all that I can to the light and truth of the gospel, and if I can't do that, at least I can serve and teach through my example.
