Hi I'm Kary

I love music, I run marathons, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music! I was in Titanic the musical my senior year of high school and I was in chamber choir. I love to run and I have run a couple of Marathons and a few half Marathons. I am preparing to serve a full time LDS mission in Bulgaria. I love the gospel and I cannot wait to share the good news!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because it is Jesus Christ's true church on the earth in these latter days. I know that Joseph Smith was and is a true prophet of God, I know because I have felt the Holy Ghost witness it to my heart. And you can feel it and know it too. First you have to plant a seed in your heart to simply have a desire to know if this church is true and if Joseph Smith was a prophet. Then let that desire grow within you. Then kneel down and ask God if it is true, having a sincere heart and real intent, and He will make the truth of it known unto you by the power of the Holy Ghost. I cannot describe what the Holy Ghost feels like just like you cannot describe the taste of salt to someone who has never tasted it. You have to feel it for yourself. It is a communication directly from God to you. He loves me and you. We are His children and He wants us to feel His love. He watches over us but He gave us our agency as a gift. He will not force us to do anything we don't want to do. He wants us to be happy. We must choose Him to find that happiness. I know that whatever challenges we face that our Father in heaven and our Savior, Jesus Christ are always nearby. They love us and are waiting to catch us when we fall. Jesus Christ walks beside us when life throws its worst at us and when we can no longer walk that is when He carries us. Never forget His love for you because it is real and all encompassing and YOU CAN FEEL IT TOO. I know this to be true and I say it in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I love to be with the young women in my ward. We love to sing and play games where we act out comedic, impromptu scenes. Last year we had a huge celebration of the Chinese New Year which is widely celebrated in my area, we gathered in the stake center (a type of meeting house) and tried different Chinese foods and watched cultural performances, it was amazing. The young women in my ward love to go to dances, also in a stake center (usually in the gym). We went to a helping hands organization to help maintain the building for a service project as well. I love to get to know new people and I love to help make a difference for good.
