Hi I'm Kelli

I grew up in Washington State. I am a wife and mother of 6. I work as a high school track and field coach. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a stay at home mom for the past 18 years.Being a mom and wife is the most rewarding and wonderful thing I have ever done, I also feel that it's the most important. When my baby started first grade a few years ago, I started substitute teaching and coaching track. I love it! I enjoy reading, gardening, running, and just sitting and visiting with my family and friends, add some delicious food and nothing could be better!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in an L.D.S. family. My parents are amazing examples of people who love the Lord and others. I remember my mom taking us children to visit elderly or disabled friends on many, many occasions. My dad never hesitated to help the less fortunate. We were taught to look to the Lord for help in times of distress. I always knew that I could pray at anytime for any reason and that the Lord was there to help, or give comfort or direction. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has always been an anchor to me, especially as a parent. The world pulls so hard with messages of selfishness, greed, and "anything goes". I am so thankful to know The Savior and His teachings, that we are here on Earth for a reason, and that the Gospel provides answers and guidance for our everyday lives. I know from a personal witness, given to me over and over again, that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is true! Jesus Christ is the head of this church, He has provided us with a modern day prophet and The Book of Mormon which goes hand in hand with the Bible to testify of Him.

How I live my faith

I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with the youth in our church. We get to do many activities together including cooking classes, etiquette dinners and Christmas caroling. We also do service projects like helping the elderly with yard work, or taking them Christmas food baskets. Our Church is assigned a strip of highway that the youth and leaders are responsible to keep free of litter. My favorite thing that we have done is to "adopt" a few widows in our neighborhood. We just go visit them and maybe take a treat along. We have learned so much from them as they share their lives and experiences with us. I am so thankful for the chance I have to be involved with the youth. They are so good and so eager to help.
