Hi I'm Kendall Whitesides

I grew up in Utah. I love movies and acting. I am a Mormon

About Me

About me. To start I will say that I love movies, definitely something I will pursue in my life. I have always wanted to create and be in movies. As of right now I am a missionary serving in the Arkansas Bentonville Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and I am loving it. For me, Family comes first. I will do anything to help my family, they have been such a blessing to my life, the best thing I could do for them is return the favor by being a blessing to them.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I have decided to be Mormon, or a Latter-Day Saint, is because I know it to be the truth. I have had experiences that have opened my eyes and it has come through the teachings I have applied from the Savior and His authorized servants upon the earth. As I have studied the Savior and His life I have come to know that He has restored His church upon the earth again. The Book of Mormon has helped me come to that knowledge, it is actually the reason I am serving a mission right now. Without it I wouldn't have learned as much about the Savior as I have, I would not be where I am at, and I know that my life would not have improved the way it has without it. All this because I was willing to believe it to be the word of God and willing to ask my Father in Heaven if it truly is. With the Bible and the Book of Mormon side by side I have been majorly blessed with a better understanding of my Savior. Through the Spirit I have had confirmation after confirmation of the truthfulness of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, I know it to be true. That's, in part, why I am a Mormon. Because I couldn't find answers anywhere else but here.

How I live my faith

As said before I am serving as a missionary, currently that is what I am doing to express my faith and desire to follow my Savior. As a missionary I go about doing good as the Savior did, I am trying to be like Him by teaching others His gospel, by treating others as I would like to be treated. So the best way I could say how I live my faith now, and I will continue to live my faith is by, whether it be on my mission, or after, trying to be like Jesus. I am doing my best to follow the path that he has set for me. I will never measure up and I am okay with that. I can at least try.
