Hi I'm Kimball

I grew up in Arizona. I love playing guitar. I am currently serving in the Colombia Barranquilla Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Arizona and have lived there my whole life. Despite the intense heat, I love it there. I am the oldest of four children to two wonderful parents. I enjoy listening to music and playing guitar in my free time. I am currently serving in the Colombia Barranquilla Mission and plan to attend college when I return.

Why I am a Mormon

My whole life I've grown up in a home that is centered around the church, Jesus Christ, and our Heavenly Father. I've been taught by two loving parents the principles of the gospel and through prayer and scripture study, have gained a knowledge and testimony of its truth for myself. I love the Book of Mormon more than anything else. Through the convincing power of the Holy Ghost I´ve been able to recieve a stong testimony that this book is true. I don´t have a doubt about that in my heart! It has brought me peace and confort in hard times and has helped me find answers to questions I sometimes have. One of the greatest things to me is that the Book of Mormon teaches that we can have the Holy Ghost as a constant companion through keeping the comandments, being faithful to our baptismal covenants and worthily partaking of the sacrememnt every week. The joy and love I feel through the spirit isn't like anything else I have ever felt. It has guided me throughout my life with different decisions I have had to make and has comforted me when I struggle. I know that as I follow the commandments and live righteously I am blessed and I am happier because of it.

How I live my faith

The scriptures teach that as we are in the service of our fellow beings, we are only in the service of our God. This last year I had the opportunity to be apart of a Stake Youth Committee. As part of this committee I was able to help plan many events for the youth and take part in many service opportunities. There is a special joy that comes from serving others that can not be found anywhere else; however this joy only comes when we are serving others willingly and sincerely. While on the earth, Christ taught by example and was always serving others. I try to live my faith by following his example.
