Hi I'm Kia

I'm a college swimmer. I compose and arrange songs and am currently working on my first album. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Arizona and enjoy anything outdoors. I especially love playing sports. I was on the soccer and swim teams throughout high school and swam for a year in college in West Virginia. I write songs, most of them are just arrangements of hymns for the piano or violin but a few are my own compositions. I am going to school in hopes of becoming a high school math teacher. And, I really love spending time with my family and overall, I just really love life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to have been born to parents who were and still are strong in the gospel, and their testimonies are strong and inspiring. However, finding my own testimony has been a rough ride and it hasn't been easy at all. I remember questioning whether or not this church is the true church since it seemed like every religion claimed they were true. And I did eventually find my testimony and even today, I try to strengthen it and add to it. I thin being in this church has shown me that there is a God who loves us unconditionally and He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for us because that is how much They both love us. One of the reasons I chose to serve a mission for the church was to help others come to realize that they are loved and they have a Father in Heaven who loves them and an Older Brother who loves them just as much. And feeling that love is by far the greatest feeling that I have ever felt. And I continue to choose to be a member of His church because I know that it is true. And I know that Heavenly Father sent His Son Jesus Christ so that we may return to Them. They love each and every one of us unconditionally and want us to return to Them.

How I live my faith

I attended a branch in West Virginia for about a year for my first year of college. I played the piano each week during the meetings and was the pianist for when the children would sing in their classes. I believe that being in a branch has shown me that each and every person has a role, and those roles are equal. Each role is necessary to the church's functioning. And now, even though I do not live in that branch anymore, I still continue to attend church at my home ward and to always try to give 110% to my calling. And I do fail often but I know that the only way to progress in this life is to make mistakes and try again. And thanks to the Atonement, we are able to repent over and over and over again so that we may become perfect, just as Christ and Heavenly Father are perfect. And even though it isn't always easy, I try to always be grateful for the opportunity to serve His children and to see the love He has for them.
