Hi I'm Kylee Michelle Rich

"I haven't always been an active member." I have many names but these are my favorite: Wife, Mother, and Follower of Christ.

About Me

I am a wife to a loving and kind husband, a mother to a sweet and beautiful baby girl, and a devoted follower of Christ. I have an infectious laugh and once you hear it, you will always be able to point me out in a crowd. I am unfortunately self-conscious, and this is one trait I do not want my little girl to have. I believe confidence is the prettiest characteristic anyone could have. My life revolves around my family, and teaching them all that I can about Christ. Christ is the ONLY way to pure joy, happiness that spills out of you for no reason at all, and He makes it possible to feel that every day! Christ has forever changed my life for the better, and I can't wait to share Him. I love the sun and hot summer days. I love water and sinking my feet into the burning sand. I love being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Gospel of Jesus Christ, all though I haven't always been an active member. I have been a convert since August 2012, when I decided I needed something different in my life. I woke up one morning in a drunken stupor and I remember feeling so sad and so alone. I had so much pain and heartache. "There has to be more to life than this, there has to be happiness, right?" I had a thought, 'try talking to God, try asking for forgiveness,' and I don't know about you but I had no idea how to do it on my own. So I sought out some help, and as I started to build my relationship with Christ I started to feel happier. As if a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders, I felt like I could smile again and actually mean it! Each day brought me more happiness, each day I felt brighter and lighter, almost as if I could float away on a cloud. The only way to pure happiness is through Christ. As I continued to work on my relationship with Him I felt more joy than I ever thought possible. To this day I strive to grow that relationship, I try to make it personal and meaningful. By so doing I receive a piece of bubbly joy, (by this I mean that you feel so overly happy it simply bursts out of you like a bubble)! I love to feel this joy, and I love to feel Christ's love. It is so real, you can feel it, if you put your whole soul into it. But HEY the only way to know is to try it for yourself. I am proud to me a Mormon!

How I live my faith

You have to work every single day to be better. If you become comfortable, you are in danger of falling behind on things the Lord wants you to learn. Everyday you must study and pray. Pray for anything, God is always listening, be patient. Read and then re-read the Book Of Mormon. Look for opportunities to share your knowledge. Don't be afraid of who you are. Most importantly don't be afraid of "Whose" you are.

What is being a Mormon like?

Kylee Michelle Rich
There is a difference between being a Mormon and being a member of Christ's church. There are many members and not a single one of us is perfect! PLEASE always remember that! Being a Mormon is an every day decision, yes you have the choice to be one or not. When you choose to be a Mormon, you are choosing to follow Christ every single day, you are working every single day to be better. Being a member is easy, choosing to be a Mormon takes work. However the reward is PRICELESS! You will witness more joy, peace and comfort than you ever thought possible. When you choose to be a Mormon you are choosing God, and Christ, and to have them on your side, you will be able to conquer every trial that crosses your path. I can think of no greater gift!
