Hi I'm Kelsey

I am a high school student. I am a middle child of 5 and I'm a Mormon

About Me

Well.... first I should start with my background. I was born in Kentucky and soon after moved to Kansas. l then moved to Pennsylvania. Then my dad got a job in Japan so we moved out there for a few years. Then moved back to Pennsylvania. All these moves happened when I was under the age of 4. I am a high school student and kinda of like it. I like the socializing part of school the most(I think every teen does). I love math and especially algebra. I recently started to really like History, but mostly the government aspect. I play the violin and had been playing for 7 years. In my family I am the middle child of 5 children. I have an older brother and sister and a younger brother and sister. I love my family and wouldn't trade them for anybody in the world.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? That is a good question but I think the simplest answer is because it brings so much joy in my life. I don't think I would be the same person without it. It also helps me with my daily life. This gospel keeps my life in order and helps me make the right decisions. It also helps me understand why I am here on this earth and what is planned for me. Also this gospel helped me find the person I am. I found so many interests that I loved and really enjoyed .Many people ask if this gospel holds me back and the answer is no. This gospel doesn't even come close to holding me back. The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is my home and I truly love it.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is by going to church every Sunday and going to youth activities on Wednesday's. Also I go to church every day at 6:00 A.M. right before school. We call this seminary. What this program is all high school students from freshman to seniors meet every morning and we study a section of the scriptures(Bile,Book of Mormon, or Doctrine and Covenants) every year for 4 years of our high school years. Many people ask why I go and wake up so early every morning. The honest truth is because I love it. It is fun to see my friends who have to same beliefs as me. Also I learn so much more about my faith and helps me understand how to live my faith better. All the things I listed are great but too really live my faith I need to do things outside of church. I stand up for what I believe and follow my standards everyday. There is not a day that I decide I don't feel like living my standards or my faith. The center of my life is Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father. I try to be the best person I can be and try to give back to others.
