Hi I'm Kelsey

I'm a dancer, teacher, choreographer. I'm a new mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Idaho playing sports, camping, and shooting a bow and arrow. However, at age 10, my sister convinced me to take a dance class at a local studio and I was quickly hooked. Eventually dropping soccer, basketball, and softball, I came to identify myself as a dancer. Dance is not only a great way to exercise and have a lot of fun, it's the way I express myself as an artist and as a human being. I danced for various companies through high school and college and even danced professionally in a Disney movie. I recently graduated with my Master of Arts in Dance and I can't wait to see what the future holds for me as a dancer, teacher, and choreographer. However, while dancing defines much of what I do, my family defines who I am. I have been married for three years to an amazing man and we were just blessed with our first child, an adorable baby boy. No matter what the cost, my family will always come first. I'll dance my way through it if I must!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy! Because of my faith, I have a knowledge of who I am, why I am here, and where I am headed. Life is hard (especially with a newborn baby!) but being Mormon gives me a long-term perspective about the trials and difficulties of this life. Every challenge offers an opportunity to grow and become more like my Savior. And because Jesus lived, because He died for me, I have the opportunity to live with my family forever. My husband and my sweet little baby boy can be mine forever. I know this because I am a Mormon and there is no better reason to be happy!

How I live my faith

Our family motto is that life is lived in "the little things." And it is through the little things that I live my faith. Daily scripture study and prayer, both by myself and as a family, play a big role in faith. I also have the opportunity monthly to visit other Mormon women in the area where we share our daily experiences and struggles as well as discussing a spiritual message. There is a wonderful, supportive community in the Mormon church created by a group of people, all striving to be good people, raise strong families, and just be happy!
