Hi I'm Kailey

I love to try new things. I love my family. I love to be myself. I am a CNA. I am a missionary and I am a mormon!

About Me

I am 20 years old and I have two years of college behind me. I enjoy going to school and learning. I am a health science major, hoping to become an occupational therapist. I enjoy ice skating, playing the guitar and singing, and playing the piano. I love being with my family and spending time with my younger siblings. I am a happy person! I also love to live and share the gospel. It definitely is scary at times but as you continue to do so it becomes easier and brings a lot of joy and happiness into your life and the lives of those around you. Right now I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in New Zealand. I love what I am doing and even though it is hard, there is nothing I would rather be doing at this time in my life. I love serving my God and my Savior. I love helping to bring people closer to Christ. It brings more joy than anyone could ever imagine.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I believe the things that are taught in this faith. I feel happy when I keep the commandments, go to church, read my scriptures and pray. I feel happy and good inside when I do these things and I know that the feelings that I feel inside are the Holy Ghost testifying to me of the truthfulness of my actions and the things that I am being taught. I cannot deny how I feel. I know if you put it to the test and pray to know with a sincere heart, you will come to know of the truthfulness as well. Many people think that they need science and material things to prove that there is a God. You can only come to know God through spiritual eyes. Nothing can change the way i feel when i choose the right and keep the commandments of God and the covenants i have made. There is this awesome feeling that comes over me and i feel at peace, i feel happy and I know that those feelings come from God. I know that he is real, he is there and he loves me. I love him back.:)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best I can each day. I try to reach out and be kind to all those around me. I try to live my life as the Savior would, for he is loving and kind to all. I attend church every week and enjoy learning from the various meetings I attend. I also attend the temple weekly. Doing these things uplifts me and helps me become a better and happier person. If each day I am trying to do what Jesus would do then I know I am doing my best and that makes me happy! Right now i am living my faith by serving a mission in New Zealand and i couldn't be happier:) i love sharing the good news, the gospel of Jesus Christ!

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon isn't all it's hyped up to be. We are normal people living normal lives. The only difference is that we follow rules like the 10 commandments. We follow these rules because we love God and he gave them to us to keep us save from the harmful things of the world. We are good people who try to be like Jesus. Being Mormon is a happy way of life. Show more Show less
