Hi I'm Kelly

I grew up in American Fork Utah, I love to draw,and I have a large family. I am currently a missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to draw and paint portriates of people. I grew up for the first 13 years of my life on a small 10 acre family dairy farm. I am the youngest of ten kids, so I know what it is like to have older siblings pick on you. I love country music, but i can listne to almost all music. I was born in Utah and I am currently serving a mission in Washington state. I want to go to college but I am not shure what for yet, but i got a few options I am thinking of doing.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, first off I was born in the church, and have been attending all my life. But there did come a time when I had to decide to go on a mission and that was when I decided to really find out if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. So while I was on my way to find out of wether it is true or not, I fell away a little emotionally and spiritully when I was a teenager. But than I took the oppertunity to read the Book of Mormon and took Moroni 10:3-5 to heart, and I prayed to know the truth. And so I read and prayed and the answer I receaved was so powerfull, that there was no dening that this church is the true church of Christ. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and that it testafies of Christ and His gospel. I know that Joseph Smith was the man whom God chose to Translate the Book of Mormon, and to restore the same church that Jesus Christ Him self set up when He was on the earth during His earthly ministry. I know that it is through Christ that we are able to retern to our Heavanly Father, because He suffered, died, and arose for all of us. The Atonement is for all of us. There is nothing not no one that can make me deny anything of wich I have said. And I continue to live His gospel because it is the only safe and free way to live.

How I live my faith

At the current moment I live my faith by serving as a full time missionary for the church. It is a sweet expereince. Although it is hard at some points, it is very much worth going out to serve the Lord. I have seen His hand in this work so many times. So as a missionary I teach of Christ and His gospel, and how it was restored through a modern day Prophet, Joseph Smith. I teach of our Heavanly Fathers plan of happieness for all His children, wich tells us were we came from befor this life, why we are here and how to have happieness in this life, and were we go after we die. There couldn't be a better message.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Kelly
The purpose of life is to come and receive a body, and then to use the gift of agency, or the freedom to choose betwen good and evil, and use it to serve God the best we can. We also come here to learn and gain experience that will help us become more like our Heavenly Father. Also to live Christs gospel wich is to have faith in Him and His Atonement, and that through Him we can be clean from our sins and mistakes through our faith in Him and repenting of those sins, or in other words, change from doing bad things to doing good things, and also to be babtized by someone holding the athority that God has given to baptise for the remision of sins, and then to receive the Holy Ghost who leads us to all that is good and true. And then to endure faithfull to the end. Another thing is to have families that can become eternal. Show more Show less
