Hi I'm Kimberly

I'm from California, living in Utah and preparing to serve a mission in Houston Texas. I love my family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I don't really know how to categorize myself, once I graduated high school I was SO excited to go get out of the house and live on my own. Once I finished my freshman year, I wasn't quite sure college was for me, I had no idea what I wanted to study. I got my first job and when the following fall semester came around I deferred and started working full time to "save money", but was really spending it all. I tried to go back to school but wasn't fully motivated and ended up leaving halfway through the semester. I've had some challenging times, times where I was so consumed with myself, and living my life for me. I stopped giving my time to the Lord, I lost my testimony and faith in Jesus Christ, and my life purpose. After some time I hit what felt like rock bottom and I had a great awakening. I changed my lifestyle, I moved and started meeting with my bishop and making life changing decisions to help me get to where I wanted to be. Now after much use of the atonement, studying the scriptures, words of the prophet and prayer I'll be serving a mission in Texas! I know my Heavenly Father loves me and His children and wants the best for ALL of us.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the standards from God fills me with happiness. I've realized I am happiest when I know I'm doing what the Lord wants me to do. I've found comfort and peace within the gospel. I have a chance to escape the craziness of the world and focus on what really matters. It gives me comfort in knowing I will see my loved ones again after this life. It gives me something to work at and I know I'm improving. It gives me self worth knowing I am a daughter of God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the scriptures daily to learn and apply the true word of God in my everyday life. I listen to uplifting music to invite the spirit to help guide me and keep me safe, and be ready to be a instrument of God. By keeping my standards everywhere I go I know I am an example to those around me.
