Hi I'm Kayla

I grew up in Utah. I love a good adventure. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a crazy 19 year old girl who loves a good adventure. Anything that can influence life in a better way or give you a new point of view is what I love looking for. If you ask me to do something and I've never done it before, I'd probably say yes. Well, as long as it is good for the body and won't put me in too much danger ;). I've grown up with music, so if I hear a song that is just gorgeous, I might just stand there for a minute and close my eyes and admire the beauty of sound. Either that, or I'll start dancing like crazy to any good song on the radio. I live for food, also. That is another thing I would never give up an opportunity for trying. Anything I have never tried before, I will try once. And I mean ANYTHING. I love food that much. I also love exploring, and since there are mountains everywhere I live, hiking and fishing are a norm. I love experiencing and living life, because there is so much to see, discover, and feel.

Why I am a Mormon

Have you ever felt hopeless, confused, frightened, or alone? Have you ever felt like you were the only one on the entire Earth that could feel this amount of pain? Have you ever felt like there was no possible way that you could change who you are because of what you had done or seen? Have you ever felt so alone, that the world is too big for you and well, who needs another loser like "me"? If there is one thing I could testify and have someone, like you, believe, it would be this- your Heavenly Father has not forgotten you, even if you have. He is waiting for you, as of this very moment, because he love YOU. YOU as an individual. You as His son or daughter. He loves YOU. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I can promise you that this church will bring you on a more powerful and personal level with your Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ. Your relationship with both will be unlike anything you have ever experienced. As you understand their love for you, your love for them will increase in abundance, as my love for them has grown. I promise you, as of this very moment, that if you kneel down, pray sincerely and humbly to your Father which is in heaven- you can tell Him anything, really- that you will feel something. It's different for everyone, but for me, it is a peace within my heart, where you would like to continue kneeling for a while. Sometimes I even start crying when I'm praying, and I can feel someone listening, because it is He who is listening to you. Please try. Do not hesitate. He wants you to be happy and to know He loves you.

How I live my faith

I have been apart of the LDS religion since I was baptized at a young age. As such, I have been able to serve in specific callings as I have grown up. By doing so, I have learned to love those of my age at a different level than most, and I have been able to experience different aspects of responsibility. I have been able make friends with a lot of people even I wouldn't have expected, and by doing so, I have a certain love and compassion for not only members, but with general people I get to meet with. Everyone needs at least one trusting friend, and I hope that I can be that kind of a person for most people. And as of now, I get to serve a full time LDS mission for 18 months, which has been a life-time dream of mine. What a cool new adventure to serve the Lord at the age of 19!
