Hi I'm Kailee

I'm an aspiring artist, a dreamer, a missionary, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah and have always been a member of the LDS church. Growing up I was a shy and very independent girl. I've always loved drawing, painting, you name it, if it has to do with art I love it! I love the ability to create and bring imagination to life! I've always had a big imagination that I've wanted to explore! I went to Snow College for my first year and am majoring in art, specifically Illustration! I love to sing and dance to Disney music with my younger sisters! I love music and think it has such an influence on how we feel! I love to use music to make me happy when I'm having a rough day. I like to have adventures with my friends; exploring, making something new, whatever! I am a missionary for the LDS church in Jacksonville, Florida! I love being a missionary!

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a Mormon, my mom and dad were both raised in the church. Because of this I grew up in a home that was rooted in the church as well. I am a very responsible and independent person, I don't like disappointing or inconveniencing people. Because of this I have always gone to church and done all my parents have asked me. I felt good at church and I enjoyed learning things about Christ but for the most part I was just doing what was expected. I believed that the church was true and I knew that a lot of the things that were taught were good and right, but I didn't really have passion about it until I reached high school. I was in my seminary class (a class about the church and the scriptures) when my seminary teacher showed us a video about Christ's sacrifice or Atonement. It really put it into perspective for me! I understood better why I did what I did and why I wanted to keep doing it! I realized that the savoir did so much for me and he watches over me constantly, he knows my pains and frustrations. He took on my pain and suffered for my sins so that I could return back to my Heavenly Father again someday! Why would he do that for someone as simple, plain, shy, and small as me? Because of love, he did it all because he loves each and everyone of us so immensely that we can't even comprehend it!!! So how could I, after all he's done and all he's suffered, leave him? How could I cause him more pain? How could I turn my back on him and think only of myself? How could I do such a thing? I can't...that's the only option I have come to. I have to pay him back! Of course I know my offering will never come close to what he has given me but I want to get as close as I can! I love my savior and I know that this church is his! I have felt it in my heart with such a strong conviction that I could never deny it! I continue to have special experiences that touch my heart, because of it I know that I will not and cannot leave him!

How I live my faith

My religion has been a big part of my life and so I've been involved with a lot of activities for the church. I have participated in youth groups and camps and through them my faith has become stronger. I have even been a part of a leadership in one of the youth groups! Through that experience I was able to learn more about myself and the girls I was in charge of. I love the opportunities to serve that the church provides! I like to help others and there are so many ways to that! As I said before I'm serving a mission in Jacksonville, Florida and so far that has been the most exciting and rewarding opportunity I have had within the church!
