Hi I'm Kelsey Kimball

I have lived in Hawaii for most of my life. I want to become a second grade teacher, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I played tennis through most of High School and really enjoy out door activities as well as other sports such as Volleyball. I have surfed a little while growing up. I have learned a little Spanish and American Sign Language which I really enjoy. I am a Sophomore in college studying Elementary Education. I am working as a nanny right now to earn money to serve a mission. I like to read, scrap book, play board games with my family, as well as go on walks or bike rides.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe the gospel to be true, and I know of Heavenly Fathers love for me and have learned certain principles that are guidelines in my life that allow me to make choices that can lead me closer to God. I have a testimony in the restored gospel and know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet that restored the gospel to these Latter Days. I have been so blessed to know of the truthfulness of the gospel and have felt a confirmation that it is the true church. I know that the commandments we are given were given to benefit our lives and that they are from God. I love knowing that I can pray to my Father in Heaven to seek guidance in an aspect of my life and that he will answer me. I am grateful to know that I can live with my family for all of eternity, even after I have died. I love knowing that my Heavenly Father loves me and wants me to return to him, and that If I live my life following the guidelines of the gospel, and repent for sins I have committed, then I will be able to live with God in Heaven. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have helped in my community by doing service projects with the help of groups in my church which have included quilting for tsunami victims (quilts, and beanies), cleaning homeless shelters including doing dishes, various yard work service projects, singing to disabled, singing to firemen on Christmas Eve, as well as singing to families who have had recent loved ones die, baking pie for widows, handing out cookies to random college students to brighten their day, painting bleachers, coloring maps and pamphlets for children's orphanages, babysitting for families (free of charge), chapel cleaning, beach clean ups, as well as many other projects done in order to lend a helping hand to those in need. I have really enjoyed these experiences because it let me serve others and grow a stronger love for those around me.
