Hi I'm Kaylee Rae

About Me

I am a young single adult. I am currently in cosmetology school and love it!I love helping others to feel beautiful. You will find me snuggled up reading a good book or hitting the pavement with my running shoes on...yes i am an avid RUNNER. I just completed a half marathon this past spring and loved ALMOST every minute of it. :) I am a fan of chick flick movies and also comdies! I served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints back in Washington DC and it was the most rewarding 18 months of my life. I love to smile and be an example to others and teach others about the church!

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have lived in Utah my entire lilfe. My family are members and it has been a great blessing and priviledge of growing up in a home where LDS gospel principles were taught and lived. I was taught as a young girl about prophets, the plan of Salvation for us and our families, the truthfullness of the Book of Mormon, baptism and the Holy Ghost. I was prepared and baptized when i was 8 years old and recieved the Gift of the Holy Ghost. This wonderful gift of the Holy Ghost, available to all through the proper authority of the priesthood has given me great peace and assurance during hard time, guidance and direction, feelings of knowledge and understanding as my testimony has grown and helped to stay on the straight and narrow path. Through out the years, I have seen how living these righteous principles of faith in Jesus Christ, keeping my covenants made at baptism, being able to repent each day, the importance of prayer and reading scriptures has helped me find happiness and peace each day, admist being in the troubled world we live in. This doesn't mean I haven't had my own share of trials and challenges. Believe me, i have had some tough times but although the hard times, I know that I have a Savior I can turn to for peace and a loving Heavenly Father who knows me individually and is ready to help, as He is with all His children. I know that Jesus Christ lives. I know the Book of Mormon is true, which truly is another testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ and goes hand in hand with the Bible to help us draw closer to the Savior. I know that there is a living prophet on the Earth today along with 12 apostles to watch over the Lord's church and guide us and direct the Saints under the direction of the Lord. God has a plan for all His children and wants us all to return to live with Him again. He has provided a way for us to be happy in this life. I know that this is the true church. This testimony has come piece by piece and bit by bit. But it has sustained my throughout my life and it is the one thing no one can take away and I know what I have said it true!

How I live my faith

I have been able to serve in different callings of the church. It has been wonderful to volunteer my time in helping further the work of the Lord by serving, helping, teaching and uplifting the other members of my ward. I have had the wonderful opportunities over the past few years to work with the women as a leader and a teacher. I am excited because this summer i have the opportunity to be a counselor for a young single adult program set up by the church called Especially For Youth. That is a program available to teenagers ages 14-18 years of age. They are able to spend a week together with other kids their age, learning about gospel principles like faith, love, service, strengthening their testimony, following the example of Jesus Christ, etc. It is a wonderful experience for these young kids to truly learn how to live what they believe.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Kaylee Rae
We believe that because we lived in spirit before we came to Earth, we will continue to live in spirit after we die. Just because we live this earthly existence, doesn't mean we come to an end. Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, he broke the bands of death and allows all men to be resurrected and gain salvation and gives us the opportunity of Eternal Life (living with Heavenly Father again).
