Hi I'm Kaela

I grew up in Seattle. I am a diver for Brigham Young University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third of four daughters in my family. I was born in Ogden, Utah but spent a lot of time moving around. I went from Utah to Wisconsin to Idaho to Washington and now my family lives in Kansas. Whenever people ask where I'm from, I claim Seattle. Now I am a student at Brigham Young University trying to balance school, friends, family, diving and church. I'm just living and loving life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I don't remember having a specific moment in my life where I just knew that it was true but my knowledge and testimony of this gospel seemed to grow little by little until I knew that I didn't want to live without it. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and he was the tool that God used to bring about the restoration of the Gospel. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon by the power of God and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that Christ atoned for our sins and that through Him we can obtain forgiveness, peace and mercy. I love this gospel!

How I live my faith

I am in a student ward here on campus, serving as a Sunday School teacher. Basically I just lead a discussion about the scriptures. I love it because I get to learn from everyone in my class all about the wonderful gospel contained in the scriptures.
