Hi I'm Kaylie Paulson

I'm a wife. I'm a nursing student at BYU. I love life. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third of six children--five of which are girls! I was married this last August to a wonderful man who takes great care of me. I love the times I get to spend with my family laughing, creating music, and having fun. I love singing, piano, running, hiking, watching movies, and making others laugh. I am finishing my degree in nursing and hope to start in pediatrics. More than anything I look forward to being a mother someday and teaching my children about how wonderful and joyful life can be.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and how it is helping me become a more perfected person. By reading scriptures, attending church, and serving others, I find so much happiness. I feel whole and complete. By the end of a week, I'm always amazed at how spiritually thirsty I am. Even though it's only been seven days, I come to church and I realize how heavy I've been and how much I've needed to feel the fellowship of the ward and the Spirit's motivating power. I also love reading scriptures. It helps me tap into God's power and feel His strength in my day-to-day struggles. Because I am a Mormon I know that we can see our loved ones after they have passed on. I know that it's never too late to let Christ into our lives. I know that our weaknesses can become strengths if we have trust in God and let Him help us. I know that God loves us and knows us and wants us to be happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving and serving others. I give encouragement to friends and family as I learn of their concerns. I pray for them and fast for them. I serve my husband and try to make him happy and create a home where the Spirit can dwell. I pray to our Heavenly Father every day. As I've prayed, I've found that prayer isn't just for morning and night--it's for all of our endeavors: walking to class, knowing what to say to a struggling friend, for help on an assignment, anything. I live my faith by trying to become like the Savior.
