Hi I'm Kelsi

I love experiencing new things. I play the harp. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student at Brigham Young University and am studying Human Development. I am engaged to the man of my dreams and am excited to spend eternity with him. I absolutely love trying new things including harp, rugby, ballet, and skydiving. I love getting as much out of life as possible, and trying new things helps achieve this. I hope to travel the world and especially want to go to India.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and have lived in Utah my whole life. Some might think staying committed to this Gospel would have been a piece of cake for me, but I too had to gain my own testimony. During high school I was surrounded by people who said they were members of the church, but they did not always live by its teachings. With starting college, I knew I needed to make the decision of whether or not my testimony was my own or if I was just relying on my parents. Through attending church and reading the scriptures with an open heart, I was able to gain a strong testimony for myself. I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church. I know that we have a prophet, Thomas S. Monson, on the earth today that acts as a mouthpiece for God. I know for myself that this Gospel brings such great peace and happiness. Especially during this time of my life where I am preparing to make sacred marriage covenants, I have the biggest desire I have ever had to be a Mormon. I know that building my marriage and future family on this Gospel and on God will strengthen us and will remind us of the eternal perspective and give us hope.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to show my love for everyone and seeing them as God sees them. I find moments to better others' days even if it is just through a smile to those I pass on my way to campus. Knowing that we are all God's children gives me a desire to make others feel loved. I know that people might be struggling more than it seems and that it is our responsibility to give them a reason to smile.
