Hi I'm Keli

I was born and raised in Michigan. I'm working on becoming a teacher. I love math and Spanish. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to write poetry and take pictures. I played volleyball in high school and was in the National Honor Society. I am currently in a community college in my hometown. I am studying to be a teacher. I will be serving a full time mission in the El Salvador San Salvador West/Belize mission. I leave for the Mexico City MTC in April.

Why I am a Mormon

I started out being a Mormon because it was what I was told to do. I was baptized into the church because I wanted to and I knew it was the right thing to do, but over the years I have realized the truth of the principles and that when I am living the gospel standards I am the happiest. I know that Joseph Smith saw a vision of God and Jesus. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and that through his faith and the help of the Lord he was able to translate the Book of Mormon. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and I know it to be the true word of God. I know that Prophet Thomas S. Monson is the true and current prophet of God. I know that the priesthood is real and has truly been a blessing in my life. I know the church is true and I know the teachings are the best way to come closer to the Lord. And above all I know that Jesus is the true savior and that he did die for our sins. I know that He loves us and he wants us to come closer to him.

How I live my faith

I volunteer in the community with the youth of the church doing projects through Habitat for Humanity and other places through which one can do service. I help to teach in the nursery on Sunday as well as helping with the youth. I currently have a position in the church where I help plan what will go on during a week long event called girls camp, for the young females of the church.
