Hi I'm Kelsey

I am a first grade teacher. I love singing in the car, reading good books, and spending time with my family. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a California girl living in freezing cold Utah. I was born and raised in Southern California and miss the warmth every single day. I have two sisters and love spending time with them. I studied elementary education at Brigham Young University Hawaii and currently live in the Salt Lake area and teach first grade at a K-12 charter school. I love my job and love changing the lives of children every day. I love reading during my free time and hanging out with my friends. I love any opportunity to meet new people and learn about their lives. I love to eat, shop, and travel with my family. Life is all about making memories for me and I'm so grateful for all the memories I have made.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have experienced my own personal conversion. Through sincere prayer, scripture study, and faith I have come to know of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I now know without a doubt that my Heavenly Father loves me. I know Jesus Christ is my Savior and that if I let Him, He will be my constant companion. I love this gospel because of the happiness and direction it brings to my life. I know without it, I would be completely lost. I love my Savior and I know He lives.

How I live my faith

I try to live each day better than the day before. We all make mistakes and I believe if we learn from them and strive to do better we are being the kind of people Heavenly Father wants us to be. I try hard to be a positive person and set a good example to those I come in contact with. I strive to live like I believe and be the person Heavenly Father knows I can be.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

The first thing we need to do to come to know or to come closer to our Father in Heaven, is have a desire. He wants us to come to him, but we have to want that as well. Once we have this righteous desire we must faithfully practice prayer, scripture study, and listening. As we listen to the spirit we will come to know our Father in Heaven better. Having this relationship can change our lives. He knows us better than we know ourselves. With Him in our lives as our not only our Father, but our friend, we will be able to feel the greatest happiness we have ever known. Show more Show less
