Hi I'm Kayleen Cantu

I'm a convert and a 21 year old native of Texas. I'm a daughter, aunt, student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I joined the church on my seventeenth birthday, and I'm the only member of my family. I'm attending Brigham Young University- Idaho. I enjoy reading books, cooking, baking, blogging, and spending time with friends and family. Here are some of my favorite scriptures: "Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of God."- Matthew 5:9 "And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins."- 2nd Nephi 25:26 "Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity."- Timothy 4:12

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that God is real- and He is our Heavenly Father. Our Heavenly Father loves us so much that he allowed his son, Jesus Christ, to come to this earth to live a life full of service, grace, compassion, and mercy. The example that Christ set during his mortal ministry here on earth is the example by which I strive to live my life- full of charity and love. Once Christ died and rose from the dead, He overcame the bonds of death so that we may all one day be saved by faith on His name. (John 3:16) This means we can live with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again alongside our families if we exercise our faith and obedience to the commandments. I call myself a Mormon because the Book of Mormon is another source of scripture and revelation that was given to us by God to be able to know Him more fully.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always striving to be a good person. I live my faith by showing my family how much I love them and by serving others in need of help or a kind word. I live my faith by staying true to the example that Jesus Christ set during his life. "I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."- C.S. Lewis
