Hi I'm Kimberly Duke

I am Kimberly Duke. I was born and raised in Utah.I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

I am currently a college student where I am studying BioChemistry in hopes to become a doctor to help serve those in need. I have been raised in the mountains. My family and I love to hunt and to be surrounded by the beauty of the earth that the Savior has created upon this earth. Hiking is another thing that I very much enjoy as I get the opportunity to be surrounded by nature. I love to travel and see as many places as I possibly can. I also love to play sports. I grew up playing soccer and have played for 15 years. As well as I played volleyball and basketball just for fun. Sports are a great way to come to know others and to make friends. Making friends and meeting new people is one of my favorite things. I love spending time with my immediate and extended family members as often as I can. I also love to do crafts and to use my imagination. I love to laugh and be happy!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints because I have had the Spirit bare witness to me countless times that this is the Lords church. Through the spirit I have been able to confirm that the Book of Mormon is true and that it has been translated correctly through the power of God by the hands of Joseph Smith. I know that Joseph Smith has restored the true church to the earth and that he saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. That they appeared to him, and that our Father and Savior knew Joseph by name like they know each of us individually. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for the sins of all mankind and that he took upon Him my sins so that I may have the chance to live with my family and God for all time and eternity. By using repentance I have come to know that the Savior can really lift our burdens. That he knows every pain, suffering, happiness, joy, love, and everything we have ever felt. I know that He loves me and that I am his sister.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing what Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have asked me to do. I attend Church on a regular basis. This allows me to partake of the Sacrament and renew my covenants that I have made with God. By doing I have the ability throughout the week to always remember my Savior and His Atoning sacrifice for me. As well I have been promised that I will have the spirit to be with me. This is very important to me. Having the spirit with me at all times allows me to strengthen my testimony, learn and do what the Lord is requiring of me, and being able to make correct decisions in my life that align with the will of the Lord.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Kimberly Duke
I believe that Joseph Smith is the prophet of the restoration, and that he saw God the Father and His son Jesus Christ. I know that through the power and help of God Joseph translated the Book of Mormon. Through Joseph Christ was able to fully restore His church upon the earth as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Joseph Smith was a prophet who received revelation for the restoration of the church. Through him we have temples, sacred ordinances, for men the Priesthood, the Book of Mormon, and the gospel. Joseph Smith is a prophet of God who restored this church upon the earth. Show more Show less
