Hi I'm Kayla Bower

I grew up in Aurora, Colorado. I am a student at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am attending BYU-Idaho to pursue a degree in Music Composition and Conducting. I will be serving a mission starting April 8, 2015 in Tokyo, Japan. I love music and the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know with all of my heart that this is the Lord's church. I know that this church is the same church that Christ organized when he was on the Earth. I know that through Joseph Smith, Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ were able to restore the fullness of the Gospel. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. This gospel has done so much for me and I cannot imagine where I would be without it.

How I live my faith

Right now I am preparing to serve a mission so I try hard to live life as a missionary now. I try to take every opportunity that comes to share my testimony of the Gospel. I go out with the current missionaries in my ward to different lessons and help teach.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Kayla Bower
As Gordon B. Hinckley states, "We do not worship Joseph Smith." We believe that Joseph Smith, just like Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, was a living Prophet of God. We worship God, our Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
