Hi I'm Kelsie

I am a sassy Italian, born and raised in Henderson, NV. I love the outdoors, adventure, learning. I'm a convert, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student that loves learning about the brain. I want to study the brain and help understand headaches and help provide relief to people with chronic migraines. I am currently serving a mission in Alabama. I love country music, rednecks, Nascar, hunting and fishing, the outdoors, volleyball, make-up, and anything that makes me think. I have learned to love southern drawls, parking cars on lawns, and Alabama football. My favorite animal is an elephant and I have discovered "roll tide" can be put in any sentence, no matter what the context. I love talking to people and know everyone has their own story. I enjoy listening to others and hearing what makes them so special! I love to help in any way I can, no matter what the task.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon when I was 15. Prior to converting to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I was a born again Christian. I learned about the church through friends and diligent study. While I was learning about the gospel I compiled a 20 page research paper explaining just what "mormons" believed in. Through doing my own research I was able to read part of the Book of Mormon and listened to lessons from the missionaries. With their guidance I was able to understand what the Holy Ghost was. I learned by the Holy Ghost and felt a warm, calm, and peaceful feeling enter into my heart each time I read the scriptures or prayed. It was a type of love I clinged to and desperately needed in my life. I enjoyed this feeling and sought it out more. After talking with the missionaries, they were able to explain to me that I can have this feeling with me constantly if I decided to follow our Savior Jesus Christ's example to be baptized. I believe the Holy Ghost is a constant companion and can lead us in our life.Knowing the gospel of Jesus Christ I was able to find a joy and happiness in my life. I was able to overcome many trials and come to love and want to serve others. I was able to see many miracles after I became one of the "Mormons".

How I live my faith

I strive to be an example every day. I know my beliefs and I will stand for them at all times. I am always wearing a smile because I have found genuine joy in my life. I am satisfied with all I have. I know why I am here on earth, and I know where I am going. I live my life so others can see I am truly happy. I am currently serving a full time mission in Alabama. I have the opportunity to speak Spanish and I am able to show the people of Alabama the love and passion I have for life!

Are Mormons Christians?

Mormons are Christians. We believe and follow the Savior's example. Our church is based off of His teachings while He ministered on the Earth. I believe and know the Savior, Jesus Christ. I love Him, and live every day trying my best to follow His direction and example. Show more Show less
