Hi I'm Kasey

Stumbled upon a couple of missionaries when I was 18! Now, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'd like to say I'm not your average Mormon. I live a very diverse lifestyle. I am not a robot; I'm a human. I like to have fun, and I enjoy laughing...a lot. I grew up in a small, conservative city in the middle of Texas where I was born and raised. I think the fact I didn't grow up in the church was one of God's greatest gifts to me, because I am so grateful for what I have now, and that's the fullness of the everlasting truth. I was baptized at the age of 18 where I was the only Mormon in my graduating class of 246 students. Heavenly Father is always giving me opportunities to share the Gospel and be an example to those around me. I love football and did cheerleading for four years. Dancing and working out are a few small hobbies of mine. I attend college at the University of North Texas and study Broadcast Journalism and News. Moving to the metroplex for college and work was quite the culture shock. I'm grateful to have been around such Liberalism where I could learn more about other people and their beliefs, while still sticking to my own. I was a model with Elite Modeling Agency for a little over a year, and this experience taught me many lessons especially standing for the things I know are true, and the importance of modesty. Something I really enjoy is having a positive influence on other people, and sharing the experiences I've had in life to help others relate and know that it doesn't matter where you've been, but what matters now is where you plan on going.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in Texas. I didn't come from an extrememly religious household; however, I did go to several different churches growing up. I usually found myself leaning towards Baptist or Non-denominational. Throughout my earlier teens, I knew why I was going to church and it wasn't for the right reasons. I was going because I wanted to escape my home life and be around my friends more. When I was 16, I just completely stopped attending church. By the age of 18, I saw LDS missionaries across the street and invited them in to hear the message they had to share. I was so touched by their genuine spirits, and decided to see what The Book of Mormon was all about. I felt the Spirit so strongly each time I read, and I was soon baptized. I'm not one to care much for religion, but what I do care for is truth. I know that this Gospel contains the absolute fullness of the truth. Sometimes it may be difficult to obtain an answer to what exactly is true, but focus on what your intentions are. Be sincere and steadfast in prayer, and your Heavenly Father will surely reveal to you a brighter plan.

How I live my faith

Currently, I've been called to serve as a missionary in the Utah Provo Mission. What a blessing this is! Nothing excites me more than knowing I get to be a tool in The Lord's hands, and help change lives as mine has been changed. One of the greatest truths the Gospel brings is the knowledge that families can be together forever. Coming from this particular generation, I feel so lucky to have hope of one day being with a wonderful man to call my husband and having the opportunity to teach our children the Will of The Lord. As a Mormon, I find it my duty to refrain from judgement but be as an example to those around me. I like to show people that it's possible to have fun and be happy while living a modest lifestyle at the same time. There are so many wonderful blessings in store for us if we simply maintain the standards and commandments that our Heavenly Father has laid out for us. Service to those who I'm surrounded by is not only a blessing to me, but the ones who I'm able to help. It is SO important that we help and serve one another selflessly. As times are evolving, I believe that one of the best ways I can live out my faith is by standing firm in what I believe in and not falling to the temptation of the things in this world. The greater picture is an eternal one.
