Hi I'm Kayla

Missionary of the Texas Houston South Mission

About Me

I'm the oldest of six kids. I was born in Utah and lived there for seven years and then I moved to California. I spent a lot of my childhood climbing trees, rock climbing, camping, and fishing with my family. I'm currently going to college in Idaho and I'm studying Home and Family Studies. I love to clean and organize in my free time or when I'm bored.

Why I am a Mormon

This church has brought so much happiness and understanding to my life. I know the questions of why I'm here and what happens after life. I have amazing support from the church. Also if it wasn't for the church would not be where I am and I wouldn't be who I am. The church has brought me so much happiness and I am extremely thankful for it.

How I live my faith

I live by my faith by saying to hello to people I walk by. I read the scriptures everyday. I always lend a helping hand. Service for others is a huge part of my life and I do my best to do it on a daily basis.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon temples? What goes on in Mormon temples?

Kayla
The word sacred would be better to use than secret. Those who go to and attend the temple are those who have prepared to go in and desire to strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ and our Father in Heaven. In the temple we are able to make more promises with God. Just like how when we are baptized we promise to follow Christ and to live the commandments, we make similar promises in the temple.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Kayla
Nope! We do not worship Joseph Smith but we do revere him. Just like how the Catholics revere Mary, we revere Joseph. He was an instrument that God and Christ used to reestablish Christ's church here on earth. He didn't create anything or come up with anything new.It was Christ that created this church.
