Hi I'm Kaylynn

I'm from California. I love the beach and ice cream. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a California girl but I have lived all over states. I love to travel, try new foods, and meet new people. I'm a huge fan of chocolate! I am a full time student working on my nursing degree. In my free time, my favorite thing to do is watch movies from the '80s. My favorite movie is Back to the Future! I love to cook but i'm not very good at it. That pretty much sums up me!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is true. One night I decided I was going to pray to God and ask for His help. I had a overwhelming feeling and started to break into tears. My heart was filled with love and joy. I could feel the love my Savior has for me. Ever since that night, I know that the LDS church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being involved. The LDS church has so many service opportunities for everyone. My family volunteers time in the soup kitchen once a month. Recently, the members of my ward made hats and blankets to donate to children suffering from terminal illnesses and youth living on the streets. On Sundays, I am blessed to teach the 11 year olds. They love to ask questions about the gospel and the teachings of the church. As I study the doctrine of the church to answer their questions, it has helped my faith grow even stronger.

What are Mormon temples used for?

A temple is literally a house of the Lord- a holy place set apart from the rest of world. In the Temple, you learn more about the plan of salvation and how to follow Christ’s perfect example. God’s greatest blessings are available in His temples. When the Lord restored His Church through the Prophet Joseph Smith, He directed that temples once again be built. Having temples on the earth is a witness of God’s love for us. Everything in the temple testifies that God is our Father and that Jesus Christ is His Son and the Savior of the world. For members of the Church, a temple is the most sacred place of worship on the earth. It is unique from all other places of worship. It is designated as the only place where families can be united forever and where the most sacred gospel ordinances are performed. It is also a place where you can feel closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, a place of peace and revelation, a place where family relationships are strengthened, and a place to seek direction concerning life’s challenges.
