Hi I'm Ke'arah

I am left-handed. I love chicken wings. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am definitely not the average Mormon. Although I was born and raised in the church, it hasn't been easy to have a strong faith. My parents divorced when I was seven and even as my birth father was baptized into our church, he was never fully converted. My mother remarried a man who claimed he would never change is faith of being a Catholic, who now has become a strong LDS member for about 10 years now. But I have seen how my mother's health has made it hard for her to attend daily church meetings and my sister, who has decided that the church is not in her "best interest". For me, in the middle of it all, I have felt confusion for a long time, wondering if I could ever find the truth for myself. However, I have found joy when I attend church activities, make temple trips with my step dad and surround myself with the loving and understanding people of this church. I may have struggles with living the standards but i strive to do so because deep under all my thoughts of not being worthy or righteous enough, under any doubts I have, I know this church is true. I may not want to face it, but I feel it and I know one day I will be able to get over any struggle or fear I have. And one day find that fullness of the truth for myself.

Why I am a Mormon

Like I said before, I was born in the church. I think it may have started out being just a forced thing. Like, because my mom and my sister and my dad were baptized, I guess I have to. But now that I'm older, and I have seen how many lives this church has affected, and how people strive to do better when they have that faith, I guess I want to feel that too. I am not perfect, but I know that taking that first step, I am much closer to that happiness I have been looking for.

How I live my faith

I have lived my faith through being a leader and example to young women of my age. I was president of my 12-13 group, as well as the 15-16 year olds. I currently hold 2nd counselor over 16-17. They have probably taught me more than I ever could teach them about what it is to be a part of this church. I try to do temple trips as often as I can with other young women my age or my step-father, whom as been the greatest example to me.
