Hi I'm Kayelyn

I am going to be a missionary in the Peru Lima West Mission, I am a soccer player, and I'm a Mormon. :)

About Me

My name is Kayelyn and I am preparing to serve the Lord for the next 18 months. I was an assistant soccer coach for a high school that just got a girls varsity soccer team this last year. :) I have played soccer for seven years along with doing swim team and track in high school. I am the oldest of five kids in my family. I love to read, listen to music, be active, and hang out with my friends. I am from a big city, but am loving the small town life.

Why I am a Mormon

My reason for being Mormon will be similar to most at the beginning, because my parents were and I was raised in the church and wasn't taught anything different. My own conversion came about a few months ago when I was in the temple reading my scriptures; I had always believed that the church was true, but I never really knew until this point in my life. I had had a question in my heart about whether I should serve a mission. I felt prompted to pick up the magazine from that last conference that was on the table. I did and opened the the first page where the prophet, Thomas S. Monson, was giving the opening address. He was talking about missionary work and the increase since he had announced the age change the previous year. I got the overwhelming feeling that I needed to go on a mission no matter what. It was then I knew this church was true and that Heavenly Father has a plan for all of His children. I am so excited to see what my future brings to me, and I know that through His church I will live a happy life.

How I live my faith

In my ward, it is 100% a college student ward and I love every minute of it. There are so many people that have different insights on the gospel and it is so refreshing to go to Sunday school and hear what they all have to say. I am also actually preparing myself to go on a mission. In doing this I am doing to about three institute classes a week along with mission preparation classes every Sunday. My calling in my ward is helping to coordinate all of the sisters to visit teach one another throughout the months and checking up on them to make sure they have done it. This has taught me about being bold and being organized.
