Hi I'm Kelsey

I'm a lover of all things Disney, a smiling enthusiast, admirer of the outdoors, and big supporter of cookies and cream ice cream.

About Me

I am the oldest of seven kids- I have 2 sisters and 4 brothers. My dad is an ER doctor and my family and I have gotten to travel to many new places all around the world, thanks to the Air Force and my dad's line of work! I have lived in Utah, Missouri, New York, Illinois, Louisiana, Georgia, Germany, Texas, and Alaska. I am currently preparing to serve a mission in Tucson, Arizona, so I will soon get to add that state to my growing list! I adore animals, and am especially a sucker for puppies (or any type of dog). I love meeting new people and trying new things. This world is a gift, and I want to explore and experience as much goodness and beauty as I can:)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS Church, but I couldn't rely on just my parents teachings for my entire life. Especially when I went away for college, I had to decide for myself if I was going to live the way my parents taught me, or not. And I learned that living the Gospel is the only way I am truly happy. I am a Mormon because I have tested the teachings, and I know that it is true. I've gained that knowledge for myself. And by living these teachings, there is a light in my life that I couldn't gain any other way. I'm never happier than when I am being obedient to my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I want my faith to be manifest in my every action. I do my best to pray every morning and night, and study my scriptures every day also. I go to church every Sunday, where I get to participate in services that strengthen my relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I have volunteered to serve an 18 month mission for my church, where I get the chance to spend my time serving others. I want to spread my Heavenly Father's love to other people, so that they can know of their worth and value.
