Hi I'm Kaley

I'm a lifelong resident of Arizona. I'm going to school to become a nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the fifth of nine children in my family (smack dab in the middle). Having a big family is a lot of fun, although not always easy. We enjoy some of the same hobbies such as volleyball,singing, and camping so we have a lot of fun doing those things together. I am currently going to school to become a nurse, and even though school is a lot of work, I enjoy it. Getting an education is such a cool opportunity! I hope to start volunteering at a hospital sometime this year. I work part time and I participate in a choir one night a week. I love music. I sing in my car, around my house, and sometimes in public places when I think no one is listening. My family has a dog and chickens. We enjoy getting together on Sunday evenings and eating popcorn. I love babysitting my nephews, they are so much fun. I hope to have my own family one day!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church since I was baptized at the age of 8. My parents have been members of the church their whole lives as well, so I have grown up being taught the doctrines of the Mormon church. I choose to be a part of this church because of the purpose it gives to my life. Being a part of the church brings me a sense of stability and direction. It helps me to continually progress. Even though this is a time in my life where so much is changing, I know that the most important things are to be close to God and live in such a way that will please him so that I can live as a part of his family in the next life. I haven't really had any crazy manifestations or experiences that have made me want to be a part of the church, but I know that as I live according to the standards of the church in my daily life I feel at peace and most importantly I feel incredibly happy.

How I live my faith

I currently meet with the young single adult congregation in my area. I recently accepted a calling as a ward missionary. This means I help those interested in learning about the church by welcoming them and answering questions they may have and helping where I can. I also participate in a church organization called visiting teaching, which means I am assigned to visit some of the girls in the ward and go to their homes on a monthly basis to share a short message and become a friend. My membership in the church helps me to serve and give to others when I can.
