Hi I'm Kelly

I love the sunshine! I get excited about almost EVERYTHING! I love service, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hi, I am a missionary for my Savior Jesus Christ. I love to ballroom dance! I like being involved in a variety of activities and specifically enjoy planning events. I grew up in California, and absolutely loved it! I have a strong passion for working with teens and children. I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have a wonderful family! I am the oldest of five kids. I love my siblings, and my parents. They have definitely helped shape me into the person I am today! Although we may seem like a "perfect family" on the outside, we do have our challenges and we are a normal family. I have fought with my siblings, we've even yelled at each other (don't worry we have apologized and are on great terms)! I also love to have Nerf fights with my brothers, and laugh with my sisters! Growing up, my parents would force us to do yard work almost every Saturday. Mind you this was not just raking leaves, this was re-landscaping or helping to re-model houses! It was hard, especially as a young teenager who didn't want to work outside! I am so grateful for my parents. I'm so glad they forced me to work like that! Even though there were lots of "water breaks" and times my sisters and I would run to check the clock to see if our "time was up," I wouldn't trade it for anything. Working builds character! Working hard has helped prepare me for many of life's challenges and opportunities I never realized before!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the power of the Holy Ghost present in my life in so many ways and times. I have come to the knowledge that my Heavenly Father loves me, as an individual, and sincerely cares for each one of His children. The scriptures truly can speak to us today. Yes, they were written many years ago, but they are still applicable to us now. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Book of Mormon! Jesus Christ atoned for my sins, and yours as well! I am a simple missionary. My testimony continues to grow stronger each day I live. I will and have tough times throughout my short life; my Savior is always there. Here are only a few reasons as to why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I love going to church! I love being able to go and to feel the Spirit in an increased way each week. Heavenly Father knows who we are, and I believe He understands me very well to have placed me in this specific area at this time in my life to help others with things they are going through. I read the scriptures every day, along with praying to my Heavenly Father. If you are struggling with understanding faith read Alma 32:21 (it's one of my FAVORITE scriptures on faith). Romans 8:16 is a really good one too; we are Heavenly Father's children and He wants us to have faith in Him, and our Savior Jesus Christ. Read it, they're GREAT!!! I know that increasing our faith can be hard. I have struggled many times. I know that as we pray to our loving Father and read His word (in the scriptures) we will be blessed. Faith is a verb, it takes work and effort. The blessings will be unimaginable as we continue to increase our faith! There is hope, there is joy. Keep moving forward and I promise you that as you strive to work on your faith in Jesus Christ, it will come! The peace and joy that can come into your life through the Holy Spirit will come! I know that Jesus Christ is ALWAYS there for you! He is my Comforter and my Strength!
