Hi I'm Kelsey

I love to learn. I love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love gaining additional insight and experiencing new things in life, and I'm always a sucker for trying something different, which has made my interests diverse. I enjoy doing just about anything outside; from playing soccer, to rock climbing, to enjoying a sunset. I also love reading and learning new things about myself, my surroundings and this wonderful world that has been created by our loving Father in Heaven. I get to be a facilitator of young minds and love watching one of my students grasp a concept or become passionate about an idea. One of my favorite things to do is to really get to know someone; what makes them do the things they do and think the things they think. I am always looking for different ways to look at the world, and trying to see it from someone else's eyes is one of the freshest angles to view things.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have received irrefutable evidence that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the very doctrine of Christ himself. This evidence isn't tangible, and I didn't gain it through some great and miraculous event in my life. Rather, the evidence that I have received of the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ has been slowly distilled upon my soul as I have studied, prayed about and then lived the principles of the truth. The Holy Spirit has touched my heart on many ocassions, some large, but mostly small, when I have had the truthfulness of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ made known to me. These experiences are nothing grand, but they are personal, demonstrating the awareness that my Father in Heaven has of me and my simple life. When I was first in college, I had grand ideas of the type of town I wanted to live in and the type of teacher I wanted to become. I had these desires in my heart and shared them with only one being; my Heavenly Father. Years later, I had been established in my career for a few years, as I recalled sharing these deep feelings of my heart, I realized that such a simple prayer had not only been heard, but also answered. I recalled each detail of the life I hoped for as a young college student, and was able to check them off a mental list as being a current part of my life. I was humbled and astounded that my Father in Heaven granted me such simple requests-He paid attention to me. I know that my Father in Heaven is in the details of my life, just like He is in the details of His restored truth on the earth. He has not left us alone. He has called prophets to lead His children on earth once again, because He loves us, and wants us to have all that He has. He also wants to grant us the righteous desires of our hearts, and He does so often. We just have to learn to look for His hand in our lives. He has restored His truth so that we may return to Him through obedience and repentance.

How I live my faith

I choose to live my faith every day of the week. Since I get to work with people every day, I try my best to see them and treat them as the precious children of God that they are, no matter their station or circumstance. I get to serve the women in my congregation by ensuring that they are getting both the spiritual and physical nourishment they need to survive in this world. I also get to go out and visit them one on one and get to know them on an individual basis, which I love. I study from the words of Christ every day, and pray to see opportunities to serve the people I come in contact with.
