Hi I'm Kendall!

I'm from Utah (go figure). I love the outdoors, the occasional fruit snack, and great music! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Oregon Portland Mission!! I love being able to talk with everyone I meet about our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am from a beautiful valley in Northern Utah with mountains, rivers, great fishing and hiking all around me. It's great! I also love food- just all of it- and trying new things! Serving in Portland definitely gives me the opportunity to do that. I'm a firm believer that every day can be an adventure if we let it.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? It's really pretty simple. Because of my religion and my faith, I know that I can live with my God and my family forever. That is possible only through Jesus Christ. Because of Him, I can change daily- turning away from mistakes and even improve on things that I am ok at. I love Him :) I also know that He restored His church to the earth to the Prophet Joseph Smith with all the authority, power, and keys necessary to direct the work of salvation. And that authority has been passed down in an unbroken line to the Prophet today! His name is Thomas S. Monson. (Look him up he's pretty cool) Sounds pretty crazy right? But I know that it is true because of the things I have read in the scriptures and the feelings in my heart while I have read them. If I've got a question, I can ask God! He will never let me down.

How I live my faith

Well, as a missionary I have the wonderful opportunity to talk with people all day long about Jesus Christ and how we can live with our loved ones FOREVER (pretty sweet right?!) I try my best to continually learn about my Father in Heaven, His Son, and the Holy Ghost so that I can live my life each day better than the one before. I really enjoy helping people in any way I can because that's how the Lord lived.
