Hi I'm Kalie

I'm a pediatric emergency room nurse...and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've almost been married for a whole year! My husband's excited that soon we can take our wedding cake out of the freezer... I love all kinds of adventures-I play soccer, run, camp, hunt/fish, cook, garden, travel, and I am a pediatric emergency room nurse!  

Why I am a Mormon

I am so grateful for the knowledge this gospel gives me to know who I am, where I came from, why I am here on Earth, what happens after death, and that we all have to the opportunity to be with our families forever. I love the peace and comfort this knowledge brings to my life.

How I live my faith

Aside from church on Sunday, I get to teach and learn from the teenage girls once a week as we prepare for a week-long camping trip this summer where we will all learn more about how our Heavenly Father has blessed this beautiful Earth for us and we will have opportunity to grow closer to Him as we seek to feel His spirit, make friendships, serve, and develop leadership and other skills. Also, I get to make baby quilts and help organize meals to be dropped off for the families with new babies living near me!

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Kalie
 Pray to our Heavenly Father and He will help you know that it is true! As you start to incorporate the principles of the gospel into your life you will begin to feel the peace, joy, and comfort that come as we strive to follow our Savior and become more like Him. Show more Show less

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Kalie
Our church services are fairly unique from the services of some other religions... We meet each Sunday for 3 hours! We welcome everyone into our church buildings. Each of us try to wear our "Sunday best" to show respect for our Heavenly Father as we come together to worship Him. The members of our congregation all teach and learn from each other. There are talks, lessons, songs, and prayers. For one portion of the service, our Sacrament Meeting, we all meet together to share and learn about principles of the gospel. For the remaining portions, we divide up-for example all the children go to classes together with kids their age, all the teenagers go to a different class together, etc-and we receive and share messages that can generally relate more specifically to us individually.
