Hi I'm Kira-Lee

Jesus Christ's gospel+music+reading+love=JOY

About Me

Hey, I'm Kira-Lee (Sister Chamings) :D I was born and raised in the beautiful country of Australia and I LOVE being a Mormon. I also love to sing, read and have been learning to play piano and other instruments, I love to play church hymns and youth songs. Biologically I am one of 5 siblings and I am the second youngest, but I also have half siblings who I grew up with and are just as much my brothers and sisters as my full siblings. I have just recently received my call to the England Leeds Mission and I am so excited!!!

Why I am a Mormon

Gosh where do I start? I was born into the church, but as I grew older I then was able to realise the blessings in my life which are there because of this gospel. This gospel and its teachings brings me comfort, love and infinite JOY, and that is the message of this gospel. By following the commandments and teachings of this church I am able to feel closer to Christ and understand what it is He wants me to do to improve and become a better person, and to bring others unto Christ. I love Jesus Christ's Atonement and how it helps me to remember what He did for me, so that I can live with my Heavenly Father again and be forgiven of my mistakes and shortcomings. I love the power of prayer and I love the people in this church, they are so kind and forgiving and many have played a role in raising me to be the person I am today. I LOVE being a Latter-Day Saint. The joy and and daily comfort I feel in this gospel is immeasurable and I would be selfish and a fool not to want to teach others and help them feel the joy that I feel. I am a Mormon because it puts a smile on my face and brings peace to my mind. I am a Mormon because I love my Saviour Jesus Christ and I know that the way of proving that to Him is by living the teachings of the restored gospel. I LOVE being a Mormon because the gospel teaches us that if we abide by the teachings of this gospel and centre our lives on Christ we can live with God again. And what a marvellous promise that is!!!

How I live my faith

I love to read the scriptures, they teach me, they answer my burning questions, they bless me with a greater understanding of my purpose on this earth and in this church. From singing with primary aged children to attending countless church activities and meetings, I love everything about this church and going to church has never been a task for me. I love the spirit I feel when I attend my meetings and listen to the lessons prepared. I can't wait to be a missionary and give others the opportunity to experience the happiness I feel in this gospel. Prayer is also something I love and hold dear in my life. Being away from your perfect Father in Heaven can make you miss Him a little, so I love prayers because it makes me feel like I never left Him. I can speak to Him and know what it is that He wants for me in my life, and what it is He wants me to do to live with Him again. It is such a comfort to know that His love, majesty and forgiveness is just a prayer away.
