Hi I'm Kelsey

I'm a student, a Buckeye, an aunt, a sister, a thrill seeker, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am proud to be a Buckeye and an aunt to a neice and two nephews. I love being outside and will try about anything once. I love working with kids especially through 4-H shooting sports programs. I hope to one day work in a national park after I graduate from college. I love being active and playing sports like basketball, soccer, judo, and running. I enjoy working on dairy farms and love cows. I also love spending time with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a very catholic community and didn't meet or know anything about Mormons until I met my first one my first year of college. I became great friends with this guy and when he left for his mission I wanted to know what he believed that he would give up two years of his life for. I started talking to online missionaries but had no intention of converting. I finished reading the Book of Mormon and then finally met with local missionaries. After a long prayerful and emotional process I came to learn that the Book of Mormon was true and I knew I had to do what my Heavenly Father wanted me to do. I overcame my irrational fear of water and was baptized and I couldn't be happier. I am so grateful for the chance I was given to learn of the truth and fullness of the gospel. One of the great things about being Mormon is that I am encouraged to question and find answers, not just accept things because that is what I am told. I am encouraged to ask anything of my Heavenly Father and help him guide me to the truth and not just accept the words of another man.

How I live my faith

I love helping others and volunteering in my community with young people. I strive to be as good of a role model for them as I can be.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

As a convert I had to discover this for myself too. God is the source of all truth and will use the Holy Ghost to inform you of all that is true. In order to find out you should sincerely ask God through prayer if what you have been told and are learning is true. The Holy Ghost will testify of the truthfullness of things by giving you feelings of peace, happiness, and comfort. The more you study, pray, and live your life following the commandments the more you will feel the Holy Ghost and be able to learn of the truthfullness of Mormonism. Show more Show less
