Hi I'm Kelley

I was born in Utah, and raised in sunny Arizona. I love to spend time with my family, and also coaching gymnastics.

About Me

I am happily married to my sweet husband for almost 6 years now. We have two amazing kids, both of whom I love and adore, and get to spend my days with. I coach gymnastics, and absolutely love it. I enjoy to craft. Mainly with paper crafts, such as scrapbooking, but I also do enjoy other things. I have been very blessed in my life, and I continue to thank my Heavenly Father for all of my blessings that are beyond what I could have hoped for. I love my life, and feel genuinely happy for all that I've been given.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole life. We went to Church when I was a little girl, and as soon as I was able to drive, I continued going and growing in the Gospel. I had an amazing opportunity to travel to Nauvoo when I was a Senior in High School, and through that trip I gained a testimony of Joseph Smith and all that he went through to restore this wonderful Gospel. Through all his hard work and sacrifice, we've been able to have all the truths of the Church magnified. I gained a strong testimony for myself through that experience, that lead me to attending a small college that was in a "Mormon" town. I feel like I was lead there to gain a better understanding of leaning on my Heavenly Father through prayer and through reading my scriptures. I may not know everything there is to know about the Church. And I don't pretend to. I know that through my college experience I was lead to find a wonderful guy to marry and start raising a family with. Being sealed in the Temple for time and all eternity was such a blessing in my life that I am truly grateful for. I know that my family can be together forever, and through living a righteous and healthy life we can live with him again. That is a great blessing to me to rely on the Lord to help me in times of need, and to give me strength when I feel weak. I love this wonderful Gospel and all the teachings that have taught me to be who I am today. I'm very proud to say that I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Through Church, I get the privilege to work with the youth. The "Nursery" kids that are between the ages of 18 months, and 3 years old. I adore working with such young kids and working with the sweet spirits that they have. It's a wonderful experience to teach these children that families can be together forever, and that Our Heavenly Father and Jesus love us no matter what. I enjoy attending Church and Church meetings. I also get the opportunity to serve as a "visiting teacher" which I have built great friendships from.
