Hi I'm Kelly

Hi! My name is Kelly. I grew up in Mississippi. I'm a fun loving open minded person and a little adventurous and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I went to college and graduated with an Associates in Surgical Technology. I really like to do 5k runs/walks for a cause. I like to do lots of different things like dancing,singing,kayaking,shopping, reading, making cards, swimming, hiking, camping, and loads of other stuff! I recently went parasailing!! I'd like to do more things a little out of my comfort zone just to try something new and exciting!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, but i believe that we are all converts because we all have to gain our own testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. My testimony isn't one single event or something magnificant. Its simple and true to me. I have had different things happen in my life that lead me to know the church was true. I know that the church is true. I know that my Savior loves me and that he knows me as an individual because when I have prayed with real intent and he has never left me. He has always answered. Not always how I want but he always does. He sends me aid in my trials and even when I dont feel that "burning" feeling thats when I know that He trust me the most to make the right decision. I know that this is the same gospel and same church as in the primitive church. When there were apostles and prophets on the earth to lead and guide us. Heavenly Father wouldn't close the doors of Heaven and I believe each of us is entitled to recieve personal revelation from our Heavenly Father. I also know that he is a kind tender loving parent. I know that He appeared to Joseph Smith Jr. and had him do this marvelous work of translating the Book of Mormon to help us. The Book of Mormon has always given me hope and guidance. The people in that book are real. They went through so much to share their testimonies of Jesus Christ with us to help us get through anything. I KNOW that my Savior lives and that he plays an important role in each of our lives as long as we call upon him and ask for what we stand in need of.

How I live my faith

I am the fourth Sunday relief society teacher and the 2nd counselor in the Primary. I also work with the young single adults ages 18-30. We do lots of fun things. ie camping, kayaking, traveling, movie/game nights, dancing, tailgating, football games, and pretty much anything that you like to do. We are all different but we all like to have fun. I also like to volunteer or give back. Any little act of service I can do is awesome! It can be helping someone with groceries, cutting their grass, or just listening and visiting with them.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

I believe that by dressing appropriately we are showing our father in Heaven that we respect his gift to us which is our mortal bodies. When we dress modestly then it helps others see who we are without being distracted by our appearance. But it's not all about how you dress it's how you act also. When your modest in speech and actions you aren't polluting your mind with unholy things which will help you in many ways one being chaste. If you respect yourself others will respect you.
