Hi I'm Keri

I was born and raised in Provo, Utah. I love exploring and taking photos of nature. Glitter is my favorite color. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am always up for adventure. If it is hiking around the Utah mountains, long boarding around the valley, photography, laser tag, dancing, to skydiving, I'm so down. In high school I was into track and field, threw javelin, shot put and discus. I also did marching band, golf, photography, EMS training, art, and weight training. My favorite was being on one of the modern dance teams. I am a big film photography enthusiast and am planning on becoming a graphic designer and stunt driver once I get back from serving my mission. I'm currently on my mission in Finland! I love who I am because of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I want to shape my future towards serving others and bringing them happiness, for now and for eternity. I certainly have been blessed with much joy in my life, and I plan on doing all I can to repay God for all I have been given.

Why I am a Mormon

We all have had a rough time in our life where we felt completely alone, perhaps abandoned, and want to run away forever. If it wasn't for the knowledge of knowing that I can run to my Heavenly Father when I felt that way, I wouldn't feel as strong and be where I am right now. I wouldn't have been able to handle hard situations without the help and pure love that He constantly gives us. This gospel is so true, without a doubt in my mind I know that. I have a solid testimony of prayer, and that God really does hear us. He is anxious to help guild us, we just have to remember to pray. Through making lots of silly mistakes, I have felt the importance of repenting daily. It is more than okay to ask for help when we feel helpless. I am a person who hates to admit defeat or even acknowledge I can't do something by myself, but I know that we cannot do life by our self. I can't express how important it is to pray like 20 times a day. It may seem silly, but know that asking for help and talking to God that often is what we should do! Totally acceptable! If there was one thing I'd want my main message to be to everyone, it would be that through this gospel you can find comfort by praying. You can find happiness even in the hardest, worst times in your life. Also by getting to know Jesus Christ. He is our Savior, he can save us from drowning. You just have to reach up to Him and he will save you every time.

How I live my faith

I live my faith, currently, by serving in my mission! I have been called to labor in the Finland Helsinki Mission. I have looked forward to this event since I little, and have been preparing to come out here my whole life. I work on building my testimony by reading the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I believe in bettering ourselves on the daily because that is how much we need to do it. I make it a goal to leave people better than I find them, but I know If I fall short of my goals, I can use the Atonement of Jesus Christ to try again. I know that by coming out here serving will shape me to being the person Heavenly Father wants me to be, and bless the lives of my future family.
