Hi I'm Kaylee Christensen

I hail from the beautiful land of California. I love music, being outdoors and teaching. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of four children. I go to school and I hope to get a degree in Elementary Education and possibly Special Education. I spent about five months in South East China teaching English to a class of preschoolers. It was one of the most rewarding experiences thus far in my life. I love to travel and go on adventures. The world has so much to see and experience! I have recently been called to serve as a full time missionary in the Utica, New York Mission. I am very excited for the opportunity to serve the Lord and the people in New York for 18 months. I love music and it's power. I love my family and friends very much.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family with parents who are strong members of the church. I was baptized when I was eight and have grown up attending church every Sunday. Even though I was raised in the church, there was still a point in my life where I needed to know and find for myself that this was the true church. I can say, with all my heart, that I know this is God's church here on earth. I know that it was restored again through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that my Savior suffered and died for me and I continue to follow His gospel because of how happy it makes me. I am grateful for the knowledge that families can be together forever, it is such a comfort. I am grateful for my testimony and for my Heavenly Father's love for each of His children. I have felt his love many times in my life and can't wait to serve and spread His love to the people of New York.

How I live my faith

Right now I attend my church meetings on Sundays and go to Thursday Night Activities with the other single adult members in my ward. I try to share the gospel with others through my example and through service. In about a month, I will be a full time missionary and all of my time and efforts will be put into sharing and teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a little daunting, but I am ready to have all of my days focused on helping others come unto Christ.
