Hi I'm Kellie

I grew up in Wyoming. I'm a massage therapist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, I'm 23, I'm a small town girl and I love being surrounded by family and friends! I have always loved spending time outside and doing things like camping, hiking, and fishing. My family is incredible! I have three sisters that are all married and raising the cutest families ever And I have amazing parents who have helped me grow to be the person that I am. I have studied a variety of subjects in college and decided that massage therapy is really where it's at! I love being a massage therapist and being able to help others understand how to feel better about themselves physically. It's my job and my hobby! I love trying new things just to say that I've done it. It may scare me out of my mind, but it's the story that counts, right?? My other passion in life is traveling! I'm always on the go. I like to move around a lot so I can see different aspects of life and try new things. I've never been out of the United States, but there is something to learn in every new area you go!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it's the only thing that makes sense to me in this world. I know that God is my loving Heavenly Father and I know that he is trying to parent us spiritually. He does that by giving us commandments and guidelines to live by. To me, it shows that He loves me enough to give me counsel and direction. With so much changing in the world all the time, it's nice to know that I always have my religion and my belief in God to follow. I'm also a Mormon because I've taken the challenge to read the Book of Mormon and ask Heavenly Father if it's true. I know it's one of many tangible evidences that proves Him. It's completely focused on my Savior Jesus Christ and gives me the strength and support I need. It fascinates me to read The Bible and The Book of Mormon side by side and to connect the dots with what Heavenly Father is trying to have us know. Another main reason why I'm Mormon is very basic... Because it's true! I know it with all my heart. This is God's church. It's the way back to Him!

How I live my faith

I currently am living my faith as a missionary! It's pretty much the coolest thing I've ever done with my life! To be able to help people who are struggling find God, develop a great love for him and see the change in their lives is the best feeling in the entire world. I have a strong desire for everyone to have a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father. It's this relationship that brings us joy, peace, and happiness and the strength to get through any challenge that comes our way. Life is hard! It was never intended for us to take on this life alone. I love teaching people about the importance of daily scripture study, prayer, and attending church. Before my mission, I was very active in my faith. I went to camps and classes and all sorts of things that helped me gain a testimony of who Jesus Christ is and how He can help me in my life. It's these lessons that have helped me know exactly who I am, what I stand for, and what I want to achieve in this life. I attend church every single week, read my scriptures--Bible and Book of Mormon--every single day, and I pray to my Father many times a day. It's the constant reminder of Him in my life that helps me stay focused on my dreams and desires.
