Hi I'm Kendal

I'm from a small town in Idaho. I'm an avid reader. I'm a certified parliamentarian. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the middle child in a family with three kids. I have an older brother and a younger sister. Family is very important to me. We enjoy spending time together. It doesn't matter if we are just hanging out or hunting or riding our four-wheelers. My family is definitely not perfect, I love them just the same. I have a variety of activities that I enjoy. I love to crochet - which is not knitting-, read, and work with wood. I enjoy riding horses and have helped to train several. I actively support FFA and am a certified parliamentarian.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family and grew up attending LDS church meetings. I was never truly changed. I went through the motions, but my heart never truly turned to my Heavenly Father. That is until I was in Junior High. At that point in time, I was going through a rough time. My heart was hard and I was an unkind and unhappy person. I wanted to change, but I just couldn't do it. I had so much anger locked inside me that I couldn't let out. In desperation, I started praying. I felt my Heavenly Father's love, but there wasn't an immediate lessening of my anger. I began to attend church with real intent to learn. I began to pray constantly-whether angry or happy. I discovered that it is in God that true and lasting happiness is found. I also discovered a Father who is kind, and loving beyond any I have ever know. He wants us to succeed, to be happy, and to help our fellow man. This gospel has been my salvation and I am grateful for it at every moment of the day. The road is not easy, but God can increase your strength. I believe in this gospel and in the Prophet. Amen.

How I live my faith

I love giving service in my community! I have been a part of several organizations that give service, one of which is the LDS church. Service is an important part of the Gospel and I have learned that there is always an act of service you can give. I have also had a position in the church planning activities for the young women. I helped plan events and mentor the younger girls. Additionally, I was able to help teach others how to discover their family history. It was so fun to see the names, people, and stories that people discovered were related to them.
