Hi I'm Kelly

I grew up in Rancho Palos Verdes. I love to dance, bake, and laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a nursing major at Brigham Young University. I just returned home from serving in the Mississippi Jackson Mission and I loved it! I'm the baby of my family and the aunt of eight beautiful nieces and nephews. I love making others feel happy and loved. I'm an avid quote collector and I have enjoyed baking thousands of cookies. I have had the most wonderful and life-changing experiences of going to Belize and Haiti for humanitarian relief. I love my family, friends, and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are at the head of this church. I have been infinitely blessed because of my membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that all of the truths of the gospel have been restored through the prophet, Joseph Smith. I know with all of my heart that this church is true because my prayers about its truthfulness have been answered. I know that we have a Father in Heaven who always loves us. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. I know that the Holy Ghost testifies of all truth. I am so grateful for the holy scriptures, including the Book of Mormon. I know they have been a source of strength and comfort for me. I know that President Monson is our inspired prophet today. I am grateful that Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by obeying the commandments that Heavenly Father has given us, like going to church, reading the scriptures, and following the prophet. I know that if I really do love Him, then I will listen to Him. I know that we can trust Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ because I know that They love us perfectly. I try to follow my Savior's example every day, not just on Sundays. I try to love, help, and serve others as He does. I strive to be worthy to have His Spirit as my constant companion because that is the only way I feel true peace.
