Hi I'm Kelly

I'm a Mormon. I'm a married mother of five. I live in south Mississippi. I teach yoga,and I like to run.

About Me

I've been married for twenty years. We have five children, ages eighteen to nine. That's where most of my time goes, but I also make time to teach and practice yoga. I really enjoy running, I'm a member of our local running club. I like to read, anything from classic litature to science fiction, to cook books. Living in south Mississippi I'm grateful for all the opportunities to be outside enjoying nature.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of this church. My parents both converted when they were teenagers. My parents loved the gospel and diligently taught me, and my five siblings the commandments. We were raised to follow the teachings of Jesus and to choose the right. I didn't always do that, but knew that when mistakes were made I could repent. I'm not sure when I stopped relaying on my parents testimony and gained one of my own, I think it developed a little at a time. As I grew into adulthood I knew that what I had been taught was correct, and I wanted to live the way that my parents taught me. I continue to live the gospel standards because I love the Lord and feel His peace in my life as I live righteously.

How I live my faith

I enjoy teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to others. I've had lots of opportunities to do this throughout the years. One thing that I currently do is travel to different units, or congregations, and talk to the youth in our area. Trying to live the way God wants you to can be very difficult for anyone. My heart goes out to all the teenagers who are trying to do the right thing and all around them is evil, and uncertainty. I like to let the youth know that they are not alone, that we have a loving Heavenly Father who is mindful of them, and proud of them for making good decisions.
