Hi I'm Kelsey Gurecki

I'm from New Hampshire. I love running and ultimate frisbee! I'm a twin! And I'm curently serving a mission in Fresno, California!

About Me

Well, I was born and raised in New Hampshire, and I loved it! I studied Travel and Tourism Studies at Brigham Young University for 3 years. I have five other siblings, and I'm a twin! I love love love running. I run just about everyday, and ran my first marathon in November 2010. My favorite sport is ultimate frisbee - which is indeed a sport!!! I also really love watching movies, and hope to make movies of my own someday. I would love to travel and make new friends around the world in whatever career I choose. I'm currently serving as a full time missionary in the California Fresno mission, which is GREAT!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel of Jesus Christ has given direction, meaning, and happiness to my life. My parents are converts of about 20 years, so we've been learning about and growing together as a family in the gospel during that time. I love being a member of the Church, and I know it's true. I know that it's true because as I have tried to live the gospel, the promised blessings that come from living the gospel have happened in my life. I know it's true because God has answered my prayers. One of the wonderful things about the gospel is that it's an open invitation to all. We all have the chance to pray for ourselves and ask toknow if it's true! Don't take my word for it, you can pray to know.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving as a missionary in the California, Fresno Mission and it's the best! For the past 11 months during this missionary service I have had the opportunity to Invite others to come unto Christ. I have met many people and have had a chance to share the restored gospel with them, and explain how living the gospel of Jesus Christ can help us in our lives. I've seen how people change by their comitment to the gospel and how happy it makes them!

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Kelsey Gurecki
I love reading in the scriptures because they're like a guide to our life. If you've ever wanted to find a guide book to life, the scriptures are it! they're the words of God and were written for everyone not just for the prophets who received the revelation, but for all to enjoy. I have, at times, flipped open to the scriptures and found a verse that was very pertinent to a difficult time that I was going through. Give it a try; it works! Show more Show less
