Hi I'm Kelly

I've lived in Kansas most of my life. I'm a Registered Nurse. I joined the church in July of 2006. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother to 3 kids, ages 13, 10 and a new baby born in October 2010. I met my husband playing an online video game. He's also the person who introduced me to the Church. We still enjoy playing games together, although we don't have much time for it. I also enjoy reading and watching TV and movies.

Why I am a Mormon

My husband was raised as a Mormon, and when I met him online I was drawn to his kindness and understanding. After talking with him online for over a year and doing some research on my own I decided to check out the local Mormon church one Sunday with my kids. I've been in several churches in my life, but in none of them did I feel as comfortable and at home as I did in the Mormon church. I felt a peace come over me as soon as I entered the building and I knew from that moment on that it was where I was supposed to be. I was baptized a couple months later. Almost 2 years later, my husband and I were married in the Temple. Having the Gospel in our lives has made us happier and given us peace. I know that this is God's true church and that by following His commandments and living the Gospel I can draw closer to him.

How I live my faith

I lead a group of girls ages 8-12 in Activities to help them learn more about the Gospel and prepare them for becoming young women. I am also our Ward music chairman and I was recently called to teach in Relief Society. I try to talk about the church with my nonmember friends and family when given the opportunity. I encourage my kids to be active in the church and participate in the youth activities and my son is now in Seminary, which he is really enjoying. We try to live in harmony with the Holy Ghost and have our home be a place where it can dwell and we can feel safe and secure.
