Hi I'm Kimball Hatch

I play basketball, love the Gospel, will be serving in the Brazil Vitória Mission from July 2016-July 2018, and I'm a Mormon!!

About Me

I am currently 18 years old. I just graduated from High school, and I love to read, learn, and play basketball. I love the outdoors, and am an avid hiker and camper. I am continuously trying to better myself by learning new things. I am down to try anything at least once. I love playing sports, exercising, and working out. I always try my hardest in everything I do. I am preparing to serve a mission to Vitória Brazil, and I cannot wait! Upon returning, I will be attending Brigham Young University in Provo Utah. From there, I look forward to pursuing degrees in political science, business, and history.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in the teachings. I believe in God the Eternal Father, and in His son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. I know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, everyone can be saved, and they can return to live with their Heavenly Father again. This Church gives hope, and explains how the world works and operates. This Church is beautiful, and the love that our Savior has for us in unconditional. No matter the past or what you have done, Christ will always take you back. He will always be there for you, no matter what. You are never alone. This Church brings goodness and happiness to my life. I can promise you this, as you learn and live the standards expressed in scripture and through modern prophets, you will be happier, and you will be blessed, and you will know, through the power of the Holy Ghost, that these things are true. God is real, and His power is real. Christ conquered death and through Him all mankind may be saved. Of these things I testify and so solemnly say, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

Although I am only 18 years old, I still live my faith and am an example to my community. In school, it was well known that I was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was consistently able to share my beliefs with nonmember friends in clubs, sports, and also where I worked, the local Papa Murphy's.
