Hi I'm Kiki Beil

I'm a super creative mother of two. I live and thrive in beautiful Colorado. I love to bake cakes and scrapbook. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, a mother, a student and a teacher. Although I was born in California and miss the palm trees and the ocean, I grew up in Colorado and this is my home. I love to be outdoors and do fun things like camp and climb mountains. I love to travel and I have been to so many places throughout the United States. Someday I would love to visit France or Italy, or any place that I can experience different cultures. I have been married to my husband Tyler for five years and togther we have two amazing and beautiful little boys. I love to share the stories of our lives by taking pictures and scrapbooking every moment. I am currently attending college to further my education and for now I am pursuing a degree in business management. I am slowly learning to be a better cook, and through this I have discovered baking. I really love to bake and decorate cakes. The most important thing about me is that I love life, I love my family and friends, and I am truly blessed and happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but my life has not been perfect and I have faced many challenges. I have found it eaiser to follow many commandments simply because I was taught at a young age to follow them, but other things have been harder to come by. My parents divorced when I was Sixteen years old, and a major factor was religion. This was the first time I found myself questioning my heavenly father and wether or not the gospel I believed in was true. Two years later, my little brother died in a car accident. My brother was my best friend, he was only a few years younger than me and we shared secrets, friends and good times. I found comfort in celebrating his life and the person he was when he died. I knew then that he wasn't going to be gone forever, and that he would always be with me in spirit. I have learned that even though I cannot have all the answers to why things happen, I can know that there is a reason and I will learn it someday. For now I am grateful that his death has brought me closer to my Father in Heaven than I have ever been. It has helped me realize the important things in life and to rearrange my priorities. I know that our lives on earth are a tiny part of the big picture and that knowledge puts everything in an entirely different perspective. I introduced the gospel to my husband and I have had the opportunity to see him get baptized and to watch his life change because of it. I truly believe in modern day miracles because they happen in my life all the time. I know that no matter where life takes me, the church I believe in never changes, it is constant everywhere. I am a mormon because I have a Heavenly Father who loves me, who blesses my life and my family, and who I can pray to for comfort and guidance. I can't help but praise him and follow his commandments.

How I live my faith

They say that you learn the most when you teach something, and by raising my boys I am quickly learning that to be so true. The questions that my four year old has are so simple and so pure. I love to read my children stories from the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I love to teach them songs about Jesus and take them to Church. I love to watch my one year old point to the pictures in hall ways and know that he is learning so fast. I attend Church meetings every Sunday and dress my boys in their Sunday best. I have had the opportunity to teach the 18 month old nursery children, and the Eight year olds. I have also had the opportunity to plan and organize events and activites for my ward, or people that I attend church with. I live my faith at home by praying with my family and reading scripture stories as a family. I try and be a good example so that when people learn that I am a mormon, they will have a better understanding of the type of people mormons are.
