Hi I'm Kailey

I'm a student, a teacher, a thrill seeker, a friend, a daughter, a sister, and an aunt. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm going to school to be an elementary teacher. I love working with kids, and I've wanted to be an elementary school teacher since I was in elementary school. I used to do gymnastics and I played Lacrosse, but now I really like martial arts. I like doing basic construction projects, home improvement projects, and basic auto repair. I love my friends and I love my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of LDS Faith because it is what brings me true happiness. I grew up being a Mormon, and as a child you do not doubt in Heavenly Father, Jesus, or in anything you are taught. You pray with great faith, and you love openly. But somewhere along the way, doubt creeps into your mind. You start to listen to what the world has to says, and you start to believe that maybe you don't have all the answers. That doubt can diminish your faith entirely if you let it, or your faith can be magnified if you humbly seek answers and learn for yourself that these doubts have no real hold on you. I would not let my doubt consume me. One of our prophets said something to the extent of, what you know about the Gospel far out-ways what you do not know. When I took this to heart and really started to value what the Gospel gave me I overcame my doubts. I still have many questions, but if I had all the answers, there would be no need to have faith. I am a Mormon because I find happiness in being one.

How I live my faith

I try to participate in service projects in church groups and on my own time. I have taught children about our churches beliefs for the past few years. I have taught the 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 year-old's. I teach them about the stories in the Bible, and stories in the Book of Mormon. I teach the children about our basic values and principles in the gospel, such as; faith, honesty, repentance, service, and obedience. But the emphasis on every lesson I teach is that they have a Heavenly Father who loves them, and a Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave His life so we can all return to live with our Heavenly Father, if we do our best to follow His teachings. Now I am serving a mission, where I devote 18 months of my life to helping others come unto Christ or come closer to Christ. I love my Savior so much, and I am trying to be like Him, and serve my brothers and sisters.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Families are the most important group organization in the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. Families help us while we are on this earth. They give us love and support, and help us reach our goals. Families can be eternal through God's plan of happiness. The Church puts a huge emphasis on family. We are encouraged to spend time with our families and if possible, set aside one night a week specifically for family time. In family units we learn from each other, and we grow together, the goal in the church is that as family members grow closer to each other, each member also grows closer to the Lord.
