Hi I'm Kelly

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a wife and one son. We love to spend time together and we are grateful to be sealed together forever! We live in a small community in Kansas and have a small Branch that we belong to. Our Branch is like our family. Our boundary covers and area of close to 2,000 square miles, so we have a large area that is our family. We don't have a chapel yet, but we have a house that the Church rents, and my wife calls it our "Little House on the Prairie."

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in my teens, I attended a Baptist church. I asked the Pastor what happened to young children or those who never had a chance to hear about Jesus Christ or be baptised. He said that they would not be saved. I really couldn't believe that a God that shows such love and compassion could ever do that to any of his children. That was the last time I attended church there. It literally shook my faith. I met a young lady about 5 years later that was a member of the Church, and I started to attend with her. I attended several years and listened to lessons, attended sacrament. I eventually met with the Missionaries to find out more. They told me of the Plan of Salvation and how everyone has a chance to be saved, even if they didn't get a chance to hear the gospel here on earth. I also found out that little children are saved in their innocence. This spoke to me in a way that I cannot describe. This was confirmation of what I really knew was right. Once my son was born and blessed, I felt it was the right time to get baptised.

How I live my faith

I am currently the Branch President of our Branch, which is like the Pastor/Preacher for our local unit. We are not paid to perform these works and do it as a part of our service to our Lord and fellow man. Our goal is to teach the word and works of the Lord and help others to understand that this is all here for them, not for us. We are all part of a greater good to help others find the real gospel and understand why they are here.
