Hi I'm Kaeley

I grew up in Nebraska, I love reading, singing, and eating chocolate. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second child of 6, one of four daughters. I'm a picky eater, but I love to eat the food I like! I can't decide what I want to be when I grow up; but I love writing, learning about our brain and eyes, and sharing the fun things I learn. I love music and poetry and drawing. I mostly taught myself to play the piano and love it! I want to travel the world for the landscape and architecture, but haven't been very many places yet.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches principles that make me happy when I live them. Sometimes I have a hard time and quit doing the things I have been taught to do, like read the scriptures and pray. When I do, nothing goes right. I am depressed and stressed. When I remember to read the scriptures and pray, I feel happy. I choose to be Mormon because the Spirit of God had testified to me that the Book of Mormon is true. Joseph Smith is a prophet. Today, Thomas S. Monson is His prophet. I know that we can return to live with Heavenly Father again. I choose to be Mormon because the teachings of this Church offer me hope for a better world. I can hope that Christ will come again. That after death, I will be with my family forever. That Jesus Christ's sacrifice for all of us makes it possible to forgive and be forgiven. The gospel has taught me how to change my heart so I can be like Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving my family and friends, and trying everyday to be a little better than yesterday. Being an example for good, being moral, loving even strangers--like Christ did while He was on the earth. I love to share what I know about Jesus Christ, even with those who have the same beliefs as me--we can all strengthen each other. At church, I play the piano and lead the hymns in our Sunday meetings. One of my favorite ways to express my beliefs is through good, uplifting music.
