Hi I'm Kelsey

I'm a small town girl that loves to rough it in the country and enjoy the cultures of the city and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When I was a young girl my parents got divorced which changed my whole life. I have learned from the many trials and tests that I have overcome that God loves me and that he gives each of His children the experiences they need to become the person that He knows they can become. I have never gone one day, one minute, one second without the Lord at my side and I know that will continue as I put Him first in my life. I have been working as a Fundraiser and Event Planner for non-profit organizations for the past two years. I love to assist others in making the world a better place. I am most in my element when I am singing, playing my guitar, dancing or outdoors hiking and camping.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the church that Jesus Christ established on the earth during His ministery is once again on the earth; The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have felt His influence in my life and I feel that it is a privledge to be a member of His church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by choosing to live as the Savior did everyday. I am not perfect, but I know that my Savior makes up for my many shortcomings. I try everyday to live in a way that would be pleasing to my Savior and I try to see others through His eyes which means seeing them for who they can become.

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

I like to relate it to the authority of a policeman. If I notice that you someone is driving five miles over the speed limit I do not have the authority to pull them over. If I tried, I am sure that they would only laugh in my face. This example can be related to the authority that God gives to man, the priesthood. John the Baptist had the authority to baptize Jesus Christ. This authority was given by Christ to his apostles. After the apostles were killed, the authority was lost and could no longer be found on the earth. Joseph Smith, a man called of God to be a prophet, received this authority in 1829 by Heavenly Messangers who had this authority. Show more Show less
