Hi I'm Kelsey

I grew up in Utah, I love traveling, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 21 years old and I love anything and everything to do with music. I spend most weekends going to shows and listening to bands perform - I love it! I love skiing, hiking, swimming, biking, camping and traveling. Traveling is one of my favorite things to do! I think it's so interesting and amazing to learn about different cultures and visit different places to get a feel for what life is like there. I've been a Chiropractic Assistant for the past few years and I've really enjoyed doing that!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is literally the only way in this life that we are able to find peace and true joy. There's a lot of crazy things happening in the world and knowing where I came from, why I'm here on this life, and where I'm going after I die has brought me an immense amount of peace and happiness. I know that this is the exact same church that Christ established when He was on the earth, and that through Joseph Smith, a prophet, Christ reestablished His church because He loves us. Because He loves us He wants us to one day return and live in His presence, and I know this is the way.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best person that I can. I'm not perfect, no one is, but as we try to become the best people we can be we can help others understand the joy that comes from living the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have been a weekly teacher to children ages 7-8 and I absolutely loved it! I've also taught women from ages 18-31 and although that was a bit harder than teaching children I still loved it. I try to show my faith by loving others and being the best I can be.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

For me one of the simplest things that prove to me there is a God is nature. I absolutely looooove nature. One of my all time favorite things to do is sleep outside and look at the stars. I'm not sure why, but when I observe nature I'm able to feel so much peace and know that God created this earth, He created me and He created every single thing in this world for us. So we could enjoy it and have beauty in this life. When I pay attention to the little things in life - the flowers, the clouds, the moon - I am able to feel and know that God does exist and that He loves me and know me individually, just like He knows and loves you.
