Hi I'm Kelsey Howard

Hello I am a 20 year old, preparing to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Kelsey Howard and I am a Mormon. I love music so dearly. I can play piano and at 18 learned how to play the guitar. I like to expressing my feelings through poetry and in song. I love how after a long, and stressful day I can sit at the piano and let everything out. I love to listen to music just as much, especially to the words that they say and the meanings of songs.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though some of us are raised in the church I know that each one of us has a conversion story. When I was 16 years old, I had a hard time finding out who I was and where I belonged. I have always known that God is real, but I had a hard time wondering if he really knew me. There are so many people with problems that are more than my own, how could I be important. As I was going through my struggles, in church we were having a lot of lessons about our lives before earth, and how we were created by god and how he knows us. I prayed hoping to find out if god is aware of me. After my prayer a week or so later, I went to the Salt lake Temple with girls my age who go to church with me. While walking on the grounds I felt different, I felt good. When we went into the temple I had this overwhelming feeling that I was exactly where I was supposed to be and that God knew me and loved me and he really wants me to be happy. I was standing next to my Bishop who is the leader of our ward and he felt the spirit just as I did and he hugged me and cried with me as I realized I had just received an answer to my prayers and I could feel Gods love for me so strong. Since then I have never been the same. Knowing I am a child of God has made all the difference in my life.
