Hi I'm kelsey baxter

I grew up in Bountiful, I'm a violinist, I'm the second of 7 kids, I'm a mormon

About Me

I am 20 years old. I'm on a mission for the church in the great California San Fernando Mission! I've lived in Utah all my life and have been a member of the church since I was born. I have played violin for 10 years and piano for one. I love movie music. I went to college for 3 semesters before stopping and preparing for a mission. I also love playing and watching football.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the lds church. for a long time I followed the teachings because my parents did and i felt good doing it. but there comes a time when you have to decide for yourself whether you believe in it or not. so I prayed to know if the Book of Mormon was true. now I know without a doubt that it is true. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and that we still have a prophet on the Earth today. I know that the power and authority Christ used to heal the sick and bless the people has been brought back today and is in the church. I know that worthy men of the church hold this power, called the priesthood, and that they use it to bless the lives of everyone around them. I know that with that priesthood we can be sealed forever as families in the temple and I pray that everyone will one day have the opportunity to be sealed in the temple. I know this church is true.

How I live my faith

I go to church every week on sundays. I teach a class of 4 year olds at church and I used to be a music conductor. I go to church activities that are usually held every month. when I was a teenager I went to our youth camp with all the other youth in my ward.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

I look at everything on this earth. plants, animals, mountains, snow, and even people, and to me there is no way that this all happened in one huge bang. everything on earth is so complex and delicate but sturdy. how does that just happen out of no where? I can also feel Gods love for me all the time. every good thing on this earth is from him. and even though bad things happen, he still shows his love in the little things. and I know that he loves you too. there are so many miracles happening In our day. doctors have all sorts of medicines and operations that save peoples lives, and many of those things didn't exsist years ago. people on the brink of death are saved and I know that wouldn't happen if God wasn't here to help us.
