Hi I'm Kaela

I grew up in the heart of Utah Valley. I love learning about new cultures and traveling to different places. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a very "Mormon" populated area and loved every second of it. In high school I was on Student Council and a Cheerleader. I was blessed to have many close friends that had the same standards as I did. I then took my education to Brigham Young University where I am studying Advertising. I love to be outside with my friends and go on new adventures as well as traveling with my amazing family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the gospel. But this doesn't mean that I have never had questions about the LDS church before. It has never been a struggle for me to love going to church and what I have been taught but I have had questions if it is true. One thing that keeps me deeply rooted in the gospel is the peace I feel when I am reading my scriptures and praying. I have a simple testimony but it is unchanging. I have felt the power of prayer in my life. I know that as long as this gospel teaches me to be a better, kinder, more Christ-like person, I will live it to my fullest. This gospel has brought so much comfort to me in my life that I can't imagine ever giving it up. I know that the promises in the scriptures are kept and that by obeying the Lord's commandments, we can return to live with him and have pure joy. This life isn't easy for a purpose. Satan is very real and will do everything in his power to draw us to a life of misery, but with the strength of God, we can grow from the hard times and become better saints. This is the true church and I am so grateful to be apart of it.

How I live my faith

My faith is the most important thing to me. I have lived it through simple acts in my everyday life. Going to church on Sunday has been a priority for me as well as attending weekly activities that the ward puts on. I have loved getting involved in service activities including visiting older members of my home ward. In my BYU ward, I was able to serve the girls in my hall as a part of my calling including planning activities that everyone could feel apart of. As I go around day to day, I try to make an impact on at least one person whether it is a text to a friend saying that I have been thinking about them or if it is a simple hello to someone I am passing. I believe that the best way to live my faith is by just being an example of Christ. Everyday I work on patience with my siblings and reaching out to others; not for recognition, but to be an instrument in the Lord's hands.
