Hi I'm Kaleigh

I'm a Canadian, mother of 2, wife of a busy rancher, and a teacher. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My two children are the joy of my life. I look forward to seeing their energetic faces every day. My biggest hobby is music, and I enjoy passing along my musical knowledge and experience by conducting two children's choirs at my local school. I'm also an occasional school teacher, and love working with children - to see their excitement as they gain knowledge and realize their talents.

Why I am a Mormon

I was introduced to the gospel as a child from my parents, and have actively participated my whole life. That doesn't mean that I haven't had to seek to make sure that the religion I follow and the things I have faith in are (to my best knowledge) true. I have had some study of different religions, and have had the opportunity to attend the church meetings of many of these other churches. I have also had many discussions with friends who belong to other churches, and have yet to find the same very specific, unique feeling, which I have come to recognize as the Holy Ghost, through any other religion or religious belief besides that of the LDS church. I understand completely that all members of our church (as any church), are not perfect. Some members make bigger mistakes or have bigger sins to repent of than others, but in the end, we are all children of a Heavenly Father, who loves us. This church, led by a modern prophet, and taught through the Bible and the Book of Mormon, may seem different to others, but I know it to have the truth. This is the church as Heavenly Father and Jesus would have it be established in our time. I testify that Jesus did suffer for the sins of all mankind, and that He knows each one of us personally. He was resurrected, and thereby made it possible for me to also return to my Heavenly Father again when my life on Earth comes to an end.

How I live my faith

I appreciate the opportunity that I have of attending weekly Sunday meetings at our church building. This gives me the opportunity to take the sacrament, remember the sacrifices of Christ for me, and make use of the atonement in my life as I feel the Holy Ghost warm my heart as I seek forgiveness for my weaknesses. I try to live my life in a way that would please my Heavenly Father, following, I hope, the teachings of the Savior and his prophets. As part of my membership in this church, I show my commitment and gratitude to the Lord by volunteering in 'callings', or positions that allow me to help the other church members in need. I currently have been asked by my bishop (a church leader in our local area) to be chairperson over the music. This means that I oversee the ward organists and choristers, and choir directors and accompanists. I also choose the hymns for each worship meeting and often organize musical numbers to be sung by individuals or small groups for church meetings. I also am part of an women's activity planning committee that organizes monthly activities which teach things that will help us to learn, become better mothers, citizens, or people in general.
