Hi I'm Kelly Marie

I am a wife and mother. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was 20 when I met the missionaries in 2004, was baptized shortly after and confirmed a member in January 2005. I met and married my husband through the Church's Institute program. We were married in the Boston LDS Temple in May 2007. We were blessed with a son, Brigham in February 2008 and another son, Oliver in July of 2009. We currently reside in a small suburb of Dallas, Texas.

Why I am a Mormon

My answer is simple. Because its TRUE. I lived a dangerous and rebellious lifestyle before joining the church as a teenager/young adult. I am grateful I gave the missionaries a chance, and read the book of mormon. I am grateful I took the time to pray, because thats really all I needed. I am always amazed by the power of prayer. It is real. Heavenly Father created that form of communication for a reason. He will guide you and fill your mind and heart with the path to follow.

How I live my faith

We are so grateful to have a church building about 4 minutes from our house! We are able to attend church meetings easily and count that as a major blessing. My husband serves as the secretary to the bishop, and I have a calling on the enrichment board for women. I love being involved in the Church's womens organization Relief Society. Being surrounded by women of great faith has given me much strength in myself as a wife and mother, but most importantly as a daughter of God. We love having Family Home Evenings every monday night although it is no small feat with a 2 year old and a baby! We try our best to be consistent with family prayer and scripture reading. We surround ourselves with good people and try to help those in need the best we can.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Kelly Marie
No. Our faith provides us moral guidelines that we try to follow as faithful Mormons, and we must make decisions based on those guidelines. We vote for who we feel will do the best for our wonderful nation, and help bring to light those guidelines as much as possible. I know many people connotate Mormons and Conservatism and the Republican party, but it is a misconception. I can say this as a devout Mormon and democrat! Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Kelly Marie
We love and revere Joseph Smith as a Prophet of God. But we follow the Ten Commandments, and worship no one other than Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
