Hi I'm Kennidy Creswell

I love sports. I love people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in 5 different states in the United States. This past year I attended a university to study Business Administration. I love to play sports, specifically soccer and volleyball. I love to learn new things. I love my family. I have two brothers and one sister. I am serving an LDS mission in Brazil, Vitoria.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this gospel, but as I grew up I have had to make my choice to stay a member of this church. I have stayed in this gospel, because no matter what I am going through I always find happiness in the teachings of Christ. I always feel as though I am being watched over. I know that our Father in Heaven loves us. I know that this gospel brings joy, when it is hard to find in the world around us. I have chosen to remain a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because it is true. I know that we can receive answers to our prayers. I know President Thomas S. Monson is the true and living prophet on this Earth today. He truly guides and directs the church with the words of the Lord. I know that Joseph Smith truly did receive an answer to his prayer in the sacred grove. I know that he restored this gospel, and translated the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon is a true Testament of Christ, and the people of the Americas. I know Christ lived and died for us, and that we can return to live with our Father in Heaven again through Christ's atonement. Because I know these things I choose to be a Mormon. I choose to serve a mission for 18 months in Brazil. I choose to share this beloved message with those that are willing to hear it. I am a mormon because this gospel is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by leading a group of youth in monday night activities. We call this family Home evening. I was in charge of a group of about 20 single adults. I planned activities and lessons. I also share my thoughts and feelings with two sisters in my ward. I love sharing the gospel, and letting others share their thoughts and feelings about this faith.
