Hi I'm Kelsie

I'm a foodie. I like to be outside and active. I'm a law student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to play outside, ride my bike, climb trees, play tennis, and snowboard. I am a law student and am passionate about working with youth in schools and in juvenile detention centers to help them reach their goals. I like to study languages and I also enjoy cooking. I support local farmers because I really care about good food and where it comes from.

Why I am a Mormon

This Gospel is the best part of my life. It gives me reasons to hope no matter what happens in my life or in the world around me, real reasons. I have come to know that God loves me individually and knows me perfectly. His motive is always love. He wants the very best for me and as I learn to follow His Spirit I have experienced blessings of fulfillment and purpose in my life. The Savior, Jesus Christ, welcomes all to come unto Him. He is the perfect example of accepting everyone, whoever they are, and inviting people to improve and become the best, happiest versions of themselves. I know God and Jesus Christ love me just the way I am, but knowing Them makes me realize I have the divine potential to become so much more than I am right now. I have come to know that through Christ's Atonement, I can change and improve, and those feelings of progression, growth, hope, and potential help me feel happy. Living His Gospel and trying my best to follow His example bring me a peaceful reassurance that things will work out. I am a Mormon because the Holy Ghost has blessed me with a powerful and undeniable witness that this is the true Gospel of Jesus Christ restored on the earth today. Ways in which living the Gospel affects my daily life are fruits that confirm the truth of the Gospel to me.

How I live my faith

I volunteer at the juvenile detention center and at the family justice center in the community where I attend law school. I learn so much from the youth and people I work with and love using my limited legal knowledge to help in whatever way I can. I participate actively in the Church, visiting others, and attending activities and scripture study sessions for young single adults. I also worship at the temple. Truly the example of the Savior is what motivates me to reach out to others, to be friendly, and to serve. It helps me realize the capacity each of us has to make a tremendous difference in the lives of others. The Gospel has helped me realize how connected each person on this earth is, for we are all children of God. It has helped me realize the potential in myself and in others, and my duty and privilege to reach out to those around me in love. We are here for each other!
