Hi I'm Kelly

I grew up in sunny California. I love my family. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I play violin and piano. I love to read a variety of books. I graduated with my degree in Elementary Education. I got married to my husband and we have 1 daughter. I try my best not to compare my parenting to anyone else's. I love going to the temple and learning what it means to be a daughter of God. I try to keep the commandments but as a human I fail. I am learning to adjust to married life (5 years) and to being a mom and it is not easy but I have faith that I will make it through with the help of my husband and my Father in Heaven.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and I love it. When I think about all of my friends who live without the gospel and the mistakes they have made I know, because of the choices I made and the promises I have made to my Heavenly Father, that I will not have to worry about any of those same mistakes. I continue to live according to the principles because I know the happiness that comes from following His plan. Having moved away from home recently to attend college has been hard. Without my parents around I get to make sure that I attend church every week even when no one I know is going. Having this responsibility has strengthen my testimony a lot because now it is my choice and no one else can make it for me. Now having a family of my own and seeing how much the Church has helped me I want to teach my kids the importance of the Gospel and to have a love for Jesus and the Atonement. Learning more of the Savior and of his sacrifice has helped me come to know my Father in Heaven on a more personal level. This Gospel as helped me realize who I am and that whenever I feel alone in situations that I am never truly alone. I always have a Father who is there to comfort me and listen to all of my petty wants. Life gets hard but I know who I am and where I came from and who is always on my side because of the Gospel.

How I live my faith

I am involved with the Weblos in my ward. I go to church and try to learn from the speakers and the teachers. It is hard sometimes because I am teaching my 18 month old how to be reverent and it is not an easy task but I know that my best efforts are enough. I love accepting callings because it is a way for the Lord to strengthen me and help me grow spiritually and personally. I try to read my scriptures every day and say my prayers. I am not perfect but I am trying every day.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that if we as families live righteously according to our Father in Heaven then we can live with our families for eternity. Show more Show less
