Hi I'm Kiley

I am a returned missionary, college graduate, wife, dog mom and proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from Utah Valley University with my Bachelors degree in Behavioral Science with an emphasis in Psychology. I served a full time mission in the Taichung, Taiwan mission. I try to keep up my Chinese that I learned on my mission. I am the youngest of 6 kids. I love spending time with my family, camping, boating, playing games, etc. I like rock climbing and riding my orange beach cruiser. I love to travel. I hope to travel around the world. I got married in Dec. 2013 in the Salt Lake City temple and have an adorable chihuahua mix dog.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are also members of this church so from a young age I have been going to church. To be honest, I didn't really like it that much. I just went because my parents wanted me to. I had a little testimony of the gospel but it was weak. As I got older I started to do things my own way and rely on myself more than relying on the Lord. I soon realized I wasn't very happy. There's this certain happiness the gospel brings into everyone's life if they are willing to live according to God's will. Through prayer, study, and different experiences in my life I have come to know for myself that this church is true. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I know that through Joseph Smith Christ restored the fullness of His gospel. I am a Mormon because I know that by truly living the standards of the gospel we can obtain success and happiness in this life and eternal life in the world to come. I follow this gospel because I know it's true, through this gospel we can come closer to Christ.

How I live my faith

I returned home from my mission to Taiwan in Dec. 2012. Since being home from my mission I have still had opportunities to serve and share the gospel. I think the best way we can live our faith is to just live what we believe, which includes loving others, keeping the commandments, and being a disciple of Christ. I have the opportunity to serve in my ward Relief Society. I am also involved in visiting teaching, this means I get to visit 3 women from my ward each month. It's a great way to strengthen one another and to establish relationships with Christ in the center.
