Hi I'm Kim Headley

I am a convert. I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada.

About Me

I am a competitive curler. I started curling when I was nine years old and the sport has become a very big part of my life. I was on my High School Curling Team every year, and even received the MVP award for one of those years. After High School, I got a scholarship to be on the varsity curling team at Seneca College in Toronto. I am very proud to have been a member of my school’s Varsity Curling team. Curling brought me up from a young age to be supportive of others and to push myself to do my best at every opportunity. In 2016 college team and I played down for the OCAA (Ontario College Athletics Association) Championship. We came in first after the round robin and made it to playoffs. We ended up winning Gold and moving on to the National Championship (CCAA). To prepare for Nationals we practiced three times a week and played in a club league. Our coached worked with us and helped us improve to be the best that we could be. At Nationals we finished first after the round robin with a record of 6-1 and got a bye directly to the gold medal game. Since we were so prepared for this game we were focused and ready to play. We had a very big lead and ended up claiming the Canadian College National Championship title. I am now currently studying accounting at LDS Business College. While Studying at LDSBC, I work at the school’s Help Desk providing technical support. My long-term ambition is to one day be a CPA, and of course, a wife and mother. I want to have a big family.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 13, I questioned my parents as to why my brother’s certificate from being baptized as a baby was in our china cabinet and mine wasn’t. They then informed me that I was never baptized as a baby, when my entire life I just assumed that I had. Later on that summer I got baptized in England as Anglican. For years I never questioned anything, I thought to myself “I go to church on Christmas eve and Easter, I’m good.” Fast Forward almost four years. My brother moved out, bought his own house, when one day the missionaries knocked on his door. They taught him and baptized him. He called me the day he got baptized, and invited me to his confirmation. I went and I instantly saw the change in my brother. I went back home and didn’t think about it very much. One day when my brother was home for a weekend, he invited me to go to church with him, while I was there I met with the missionaries. I started taking the lessons, at first I was only doing it because my brother asked me to, but after a couple lessons, the missionaries invited me to read a chapter of the book of mormon and pray about it. After this, I realized that I was doing this for myself because I believe it was true and genuinely wanted to learn more. About a month later, my brother baptized me, I was 18 by then. Ever since that moment I prayed when the missionaries asked me to, I 100% believe that the church is true, without a shadow of a doubt. I testify that the church is true, that we have a Heavenly Father, that Jesus Christ is our Saviour, and that Temple are the house of God and you can genuinely feel the spirit so much stronger inside of them. I am Mormon because it is the only true, fully restored gospel on the Earth. I have never regretted being baptized, the only thing I would change in my life would be joining the church sooner. I joined for myself and my family's salvation. Families can be together forever, and I am so glad we have the opportunity to do work for the dead.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church, fulfilling my calling, and doing as much work for the dead as I can. It brings me so much joy to help my ancestors have the blessings of the gospel in the spirit world, that they didn’t have the opportunity to while they were alive.
