Hi I'm Kelli

I grew up in Missouri. I am a missionary for the Boise, Idaho mission, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student at BYU. I am a communications major. I love to play my flute and with a soccer ball (but not at the same time). I love listening to beautiful music. I love sharing the gospel and being a missionary. It's the best decision I have made in my life so far. The gospel of Jesus Christ can truly change lives. It has changed mine!

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 11 years old, these weird missionary people came to my house. I didn't know religion and I'm pretty sure I had no idea what they were talking about for at least the first lessons, but my parents understood and felt the spirit of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Pretty soon, with the help of the missionaries and friends, all of our family agreed to be baptized together, and a year later our family was sealed in the St. Louis Temple. I found that living the gospel of Jesus Christ came naturally to me and I felt that it was what I was meant to do all along. Now that I am in my freshman year of college and away from my family, I have learned to rely more on my Savior and Heavenly Father. I know I can turn to them whenever I need it. I love this church and the decision I made when I was 11 years old, was the best decision I have ever made in my entire life.

How I live my faith

I try to live the way Jesus Christ did. I am definitely not perfect, but I know the way to become closer everyday. I get to share my faith everyday through missionary service and with my friends and family back home. Keep on Keepin' on!
