Hi I'm Kelly

We have been married for 39 years and are the parents of 13 wonderful children, 28, soon to be 29, that bring us such great joy!

About Me

I HAVE BEEN MARRIED TO MY SWEETHEART FOR 37 YEARS. WE ARE THE PARENTS OF 13 WONDERFUL CHILDREN, 22 AWESOME GRANDCHILDREN AND WE LOVE THE FUN AND WORK AND CHALLENGES THAT A LARGE FAMILY BRINGS. I LOVE SPORTS, READING, TEACHING MY CHILDREN AND BEING INVOLVED IN ALL MY FAMILY ACTIVITIES.

Why I am a Mormon

I AM A MORMON BECAUSE I HAVE STUDIED AND PRAYED AND APPLIED THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS CHRIST IN MY LIFE AND FELT A PEACE AND A JOY THAT CANNOT BE ACHIEVED OUTSIDE THE GOSPEL PRINCIPLES. IT HAS BEEN THE BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE. AS I WATCH MY CHILDREN RAISE THEIR CHILDREN, MY GRANDCHILDREN, I AM BLESSED AGAIN WITH THE JOY OF SEEING MY POSTERITY FINDING THE SAME PEACE AND JOY AND HAPPINESS COMING INTO THEIR LIVES.

How I live my faith

OUR FAITH IS STRENGTHEN AS WE SERVE ON ANOTHER IN OUR WARDS AND STAKES. I HAVE SERVED IN THE CHILDREN'S ORGANIZATION CALLED PRIMARY, IN THE YOUNG WOMENS ORGANIZATION AND IN THE WOMENS ORGANIZATION AS WELL. THE MOST CONSISTENT WAY THAT I HAVE SERVED IS AS A VISITING TEACHER. IN THAT CALL, I GO AND VISIT EVERY MONTH 3-4 SISTERS LIVING IN MY WARD COMMUNITY AND MAKE SURE THAT THEIR NEEDS ARE MET - BASICALLY WE BECOME BEST FRIENDS. I LOVE VISITING TEACHING.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Kelly
A PERSON THAT SEEKS TO KNOW THE TRUTHFULNESS OF THE MORMON FAITH WOULD START BY READING THE BOOK OF MORMON WITH AN OPEN HEART AND MIND, PRAYING TO KNOW IF IT IS TRUE. YOU ARE PROMISED THAT IF ONE ASKS WITH A SINCERE HEART, WITH REAL INTENT, GOD WILL MANIFEST THE TRUTHFULNESS OF IT UNTO YOU BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST. BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST, WE MAY KNOW THE TRUTH OF ALL THINGS. Show more Show less

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

Kelly
THE BOOK OF MORMON IS DIFFERENT FROM THE BIBLE IN THAT IT IS THE RECORD OF THE ANCIENT AMERICAN INHABITANTS. THEIR RECORDS WERE KEPT AND BURIED, BROUGHT FORTH IN THESE LATTER DAYS TO BE A SECOND WITNESS FOR JESUS CHRIST. THE BOOK OF MORMON IS A COMPANION TO THE BIBLE AND SUPPORTS THE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE, AS FAR AS IT IS TRANSLATED CORRECTLY. Show more Show less
