Hi I'm Kelly

I grew up in Texas. I am a convert. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Texas in the middle of the bible belt. I played lots of sports but mainly football. There were a lot of different religions where i grew up and all of them thought that they were the answer. So I attended many of them and never got the inner peace that they promised. I had never heard of a Mormon until I was 17 when my sister had friends that belonged to the church. After some bad decisions in my life I decided that it was time to take a long hard look at my life. As I was doing this I saw the example that my sisters friends were setting and how happy they were and decided that I wanted that same happiness. So through these friends I was directed to the missionaries soon after I graduated from high school. That summer was full of memories that i will never forget. But it was also filled with telling my parents about my decision to be baptized which brought heavy resistance and many unkind words about the church from almost all the members of my family. Through it all I was baptized on august 1st of 2009 with all but 2 out of 7 members of my immediate family absent from the ceremony. I have been a member ever since and my testimony has done nothing but grow over time. And although my family hasn't come around like I would have liked I know that if i continue to show them the blessings that the gospel has given me then they will have no choice but to see them. I am currently serving a mission in the Romania/ Moldova mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I guess like most people I prayed about the Book of Mormon. I decided that I was done asking people who did not know the answer what that answer was. So I went to the only person who could tell me what the right answer was and i followed that answer and continue to do so. That is why I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

I am active in institute, which is a religion class that is available for young adults during the week. I also take part in service projects in my area. I participate in church sports like basketball. And i am now serving my heavenly father for two years in Romania.
