Hi I'm Kaelyn

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and mother to two beautiful kids. My family means the world to me. My day job is an esthetician, which makes it possible to make my own schedule so I can spend more time with my family. I love what I do. I love to cook and try new recipes (even though I'm not the best at it ;) ) . I love for my house to look beautiful, inside and out, so I'm always taking on a new project to do around the house. I love the outdoors (when it is not one million degrees outside lol). Basically, if my family is involved, then I'm there.....I just love those guys to pieces!!! lol

Why I am a Mormon

Let me first start by saying that I didn't grow up in the church. I grew up Assembly of God, and no matter how many times I would go to church, or how many friends I made, I never got a real sense of belonging. So when those trying times of my teenage years came and I had the choice to go one of two ways, because I didn't have that strong foundation of faith, I choice the path of self destruction and continued down that path for years. I met my husband around the lowest point of my life and I knew he was special from the moment I met him. I just knew I had to get to know him. He grew up in the church and I had never met anyone so caring, and most important, so genuine. He was just really good-hearted. We got married and I begin having lessons from the missionaries and even had a baptismal date but through a move, pregnancy, new job, etc. it just kept getting put on the back burner. Then, the worst day of my life happened. My younger brother, at the age of seventeen, passed away suddenly and my whole view on life changed. I became angry with God. I think Satan saw me in my most vulnerable state and ran with it. I was a miserable person to be around and wanted nothing to do with the church. I remember being at a low point and my husband told me to just pray to Heavenly Father and so I did, what could it hurt, right? I prayed for weeks until one day, I felt a warm feeling come over me......peace. After years of heartache, I felt pure happiness, and I knew that I would see my brother again. I knew I had to pick up the pieces of my life and love my husband unconditionally and build my faith in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know this church is true. I know in my heart that Joseph Smith restored the gospel. I love being a part of this church and know I am on the right path. I have never been this excited to just live life, and I have this church to thank for that.

How I live my faith

I am a fairly new member so I just take it day by day. I try my best to be an example to my children and pray with them daily and teach them the gospel so that they can build a strong testimony in the church so that one day when they have to make the decision to take the right or wrong path, their strong foundation in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints will help guide them down the right one.
