Hi I'm Kiri-Ann

I am from New Zealand. I love to sing. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love the gospel, it is the reason why I have decided to serve a mission. I am currently serving in the Australia Perth mission! My interests are singing, reading and drama! I have previously been studying Law and when I return from my mission I will continue with my studies.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been fortunate enough to be raised in the gospel and have developed a strong testimony of the church and of its truthfulness through growing up in my youth. I know that we have a loving Father in Heaven who lives and has sent his son Jesus Christ to atone for our sins because of his love for us, and because of our Savior we are able to return back home to him if we endure to the end and have faith and obey his commandments. I know for a surety that the Book of Mormon is true, and that if we read it, we will become closer to God and learn of its truthfulness through faith, and prayer. We have a living prophet today who leads and guides us and receives revelation from God. The Church is true!

How I live my faith

I love being apart of this gospel as it is so involved. I have had many callings which have helped to grow my testimony and strengthen my love for the savior and the people I served. I have taught Doctrine & Covenants part 2 for institute .. that was a challenge for me at first, however, it helped me to overcome my fear of teaching. It was a great tool to help me prepare for my mission. I have been called to serve as the Faith in God leader in the primary which I have a great love for children!

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is the keystone to our religion and to my own personal testimony. It outlines our beliefs. It is simply another testament of Jesus Christ. Just as Christians have the bible as a witness of Jesus Christ and his mortal ministry, the Book of Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ. It was set approximately 600 years B.C. in Jerusalem, Lehi a Prophet of God was commanded to leave Jerusalem and travel to the Americas. From Lehi's seed there became a division of two peoples: The Nephites and Lamanites. The Book of Mormon simply is a writing of the history of the Nephites and Lamanites, and has been passed down from prophet's of old and contains essential information about who Jesus Christ is and where we come from and what will happen after this life. The Book of Mormon was abridged by the prophet Mormon who condensed all of the records from the gold plates into one book. It is only through reading the Book of Mormon that we can know of it's truthfulness. Show more Show less
