Hi I'm Kelsey

I've grown up in Colorado all of my life, but am moving to Utah after Christmas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I converted to mormonism at the beginning of this fall, and nothing has felt more right. I was a lost daughter that was in a very dark place at the time. Now, I look forward to furthering my faith with my fiancee and living with God in my life. We both are currently in school to become daughters and look forward to starting a family. Nothing has brought me more happiness than when I joined the LDS church and have seen so many more blessings since I have opened up my heart.

Why I am a Mormon

I converted because I knew it was true. I read the BOM like it was going out of style. I prayed about it and through personal revelation, understood that this was what God wanted for me. There is no other religion out there that if completely dedicated to God like mormonism. I never believed any of the stereotypes and that's what everyone should do because the faith has nothing to do with what other people may push on you. It's very personal and is there to simply bring you closer to God.

How I live my faith

I make it a point to attend church regardless of what is going on in my life. I attend YSA, but look forward to attending the family ward after I get married this December. I meet regularly with the sister missionaries that taught me, and see them as family. I love doing whatever I can for my church and the people around me.

What is the Law of Chastity?

When I converted I didn't think that the law of chastity was realistic at first, but I wanted to increase my faith and see what would happen. The truth is, I have never been happier. The laws that are presented to us are there to only increase our happiness. My head has never been more clear than it is now, not clouded with all of the sins I used to enjoy. There are some people in my life that don't understand how important following these laws are for just clarity and happiness. Show more Show less

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

This is the biggest problem my family had with the church. They thought that I was getting involved in a cult that would require me to share my husband with multiple women. The truth is that no true mormon would practice polygamy. The truth is that God wants us to have one spouse and be solely dedicated to that person forever. Show more Show less
