Hi I'm Kayla Utsch

I'm an Oklahoman. I'm a swimmer. I'm a student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Pennsylvania and raised in Oklahoma. I love to swim. I enjoy playing the viola and piano. I attend Brigham Young University (go Cougs!), and love taking advantage of the beautiful Utah mountains through hiking and skiing. I love cheering on the OKC Thunder basketball team, as well as University of Oklahoma Sooner football! I also enjoy going to the lake with my family and friends, and love anything Harry Potter related.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel truly brings so much joy to my life. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for my sins and died for me so that I can one day return to live with Heavenly Father. I know that through the Atonement of Christ, my past, present, and future family can live together forever, even though death shortens our time together here on earth. I know that Christ has made it possible for me to repent of my sins and become clean through Him. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is led by Jesus Christ, who has appointed prophets and apostles to help guide every person on earth and make it easier for us to become like Him. Most importantly, I know that Jesus and God love me and want me to be happy. I believe that the church provides the truths and mechanisms through which this happiness can be attained, and through which my life can be lived to its fullest potential. The gospel truly does provide me with a solace from the chaos and confusion that surrounds me in the world. I KNOW that the gospel can and will give anyone that faithfully tries to come unto Christ a joy and peace that cannot be felt otherwise.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to do my best to exemplify Christ-like attributes every day. I enjoy serving others through various church callings, as well as through local volunteer organizations. I strive to be diligent in my responsibilities, whether they be in school, church, work, or family.
