Hi I'm Kelly Egloff

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an outdoorsy kind of girl. I enjoy boating, camping, hiking, and dirt bike riding. My husband and I now have a 1yr old. I cannot believe how fast time flies! We have not been as active as we would like. In 2009 we hiked Half-Dome in Yosemite, CA - that is our biggest accomplishment yet. We planned to do Glacier Point in Yosemite for our annual trip in 2010, but it ended up being a rough year for us. In May I injured my knee, and was in need of Surgery, in July my husband injured his back and was also in need of surgery. I had my surgery in November 2010 and my husband had his back surgery in February 2011. We have been on the mend and we are looking forward to getting back out there, hitting the trails and enjoying the sun this summer. We will be a plus one and that may take some time to adjust to, but we are very excited! We have some high hopes for summer. We are working on getting back in shape so we can get outside and enjoy all that Heavenly Father has given us.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was twelve my Mom said to my Dad that she wanted us to have some experience in The Church. My Dad knew that she meant The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and he supported her in her decision, but he did not know what life changes lay ahead. I was baptized shortly before I turned thirteen. I went through the Young Women's Program and achieved my Medallion. When I left to go to college I became inactive in The Church. I wanted to experience things that were not in line with church standards, and I did not have a testimony of my own. When I met my future husband I was nineteen. I was still inactive, but when the talk of family came up I explained to him that I wanted to raise our future children in The Church. We were married in May of 2008. We started attending church in January of 2010. In April of 2010 Steve was baptized, and in April of 2011 we were sealed in the Temple in Oakland, CA. In the past two years I have gained my testimony. We were trying to have children for over year and we were unsuccessful, we were struggling and I was beginning to wonder if we needed to visit other options. We decided to take temple preparation classes and set a date to be sealed. As soon as we were Sealed we found out we were pregnant. It was not that anything was wrong with us it was that there were things that we needed to do to be worthy of the blessings we were seeking. The Lord had a plan for us and we had to get on his path. I am so grateful for Eternal Families. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because Families Can Be Together Forever!

How I live my faith

My Husband is currently the Ward Mission Leader and I am a Ward Missionary. It is our call as a family to meet with the missionaries and help them stay motivated. We get to help them think outside the box on how to reach investigators on a deeper level and better connect with less actives. We love having the missionaries be such a big part of our lives. We see them multiple times a week. Having them around helps us stay strong because they are always challenging us to stay strong and be better.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Kelly Egloff
When I look around at all the beauty in the world, I think that there has to be a God. With the seasons and how intricate and related everything is, there is no way it all perfectly fell into place by accident. Show more Show less
