Hi I'm Kelly.

I grew up in Idaho. I live in Colorado. I test software for a living. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being a grandpa, a dad, and a husband. I have been married to my beautiful wife for 30+ years. I am not a hardcore outdoorsman, but I enjoy the mountains and nature. I have had a lot of fun with sports even without excelling at any particular sport. I am a lot better at breaking things than I am at building or fixing them. It is probably a good thing that I chose to be a software tester where they actually pay me to break software that someone else builds.

Why I am a Mormon

Early on I learned that I feel a lot better when I do what is right. The gospel of Jesus Christ is all about teaching us what is right and helping us choose to do what is right. I have found that being a Mormon, going to church, following the prophet, learning from the Bible and Book of Mormon and trying to follow their teachings keeps me on the right path. I thought I had the good life growing up as I enjoyed hunting, fishing, playing sports and having a great family. Over the years, the teachings of the church and experiences in the church has helped me to better understand that it is even greater to also focus on the real purposes and priorities of life and be influenced by the touch of the Master’s hand, even Jesus Christ. My experiences tell me that the teachings are true. I enjoy the simple pleasures of life and I enjoy being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

The church has helped me be much more inclined to care about and help others. Through the church I have been involved in teaching children, leading cub scout den meetings, joining in with youth in sports and scouting activities. Church involvement has helped me be involved in community service projects that I may never have done on my own. Most importantly, the church has taught me to spend time with my family doing things that matter. We take time regularly to study moral topics and work on instilling a value system.
