Hi I'm Kelsey

I grew up in Las Vegas, currently serving a mission in Halifax, Canada! Music is my life and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a missionary! Before my mission, I attended school for musical theatre. My life revolved around church, my family, music, and musical theatre. Now, it's not much different. The gospel is my life and I find so much joy in sharing it with other people. I grew up in Las Vegas, and I love performing. As part of my mission, I was blessed to travel with the "Orange Blossom Special Musical Concert" and share the gospel through song. There is nothing I would rather be doing than singing and sharing the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

This answer is simple: I am Mormon because I know without any doubt that this church is true. It is the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ once again on the earth. I have come to know this through my own personal experiences and events. Most of those happen on my knees and reading the scriptures. The Book of Mormon is the word of God, and those who read it can feel of the power that it has. This church brings me more joy than I could ever describe in words. I am so grateful that I was given this gift of being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love it more than anything else.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being me! Serving a mission makes it even more a part of life. In my daily life, I follow my standards and love them. I don't drink or smoke, and I dress modestly always. These standards are just a part of who I am. You don't have to serve a mission to be a Mormon, you just have to love the Lord and being will be willing to do all that he asks of us.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Kelsey
As Mormons, we believe that baptism is absolutely necessary to have salvation. At the same time, why should someone be denied this salvation if they didn't have the opportunity to be baptized while they were physically on this earth. Baptisms for the dead occur by proxy - no mortal remains are touched in the process. This ordinance is performed out of love for the fellow human beings that have lived on this earth.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Kelsey
Imagine having the best cake in the entire world, and you KNOW that it's the best cake ever. You also know that it will never be gone. The more that you share it, the more it regenerates itself (just go with it. :D) Wouldn't you want to share this never ending amazing cake? That is EXACTLY how Mormons feel about the gospel. We want to share it with everyone we come in contact with. Not because we want to change people, but because we want them to have this wonderful thing that we have. Show more Show less
