Hi I'm Kelci

I'm a college student, sister, an outdoor lover, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in northern Arizona, spending most of my time in the woods. I graduated high school with the same kids that I went to 1st-12th grade with and now I'm married, have an associates degree, and looking to the future.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was eight years old. I made the decision on my own, knowing that it was my choice to be baptized or not. I grew up in the church, learning the teachings of Christ. Because of all that I had been taught, at that young age, I knew that I was a child of God and I wanted to follow Him and His Son, Jesus Christ. So baptism was the way. Through Christ's own baptism by John the Baptist, we are taught that we should all be baptized and follow in Christ's footsteps. After this monumental time in my life, the day that I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I continued to grow in the gospel. Towards the end of my senior year in high school, I set out to read the entire Book of Mormon completely on my own. It was by reading that I gained the testimony of the gospel that I have today. I gained answers to my questions, inspiration for my trials, and strength to continue on. I now know with all of my being that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true, without question. God has promised that if we will read the Book of Mormon and pray to know of its truthfulness that we will be answered. And I was. My prayers have been answered and I know that this gospel is the full and restored gospel of Christ. It is because of this upbringing and my own endeavors to find the truth, that I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

How do any of us live our faith? Or our beliefs or dreams. We try our best. We work hard and keep going even when it gets hard. But why? Because we know what our end goal is. I know what I want out of my life and I know that it will be hard to get there. When trials come, keep perspective. I live my faith by doing my best, even when I want to give it all up. That is what this is all about. Sticking it out, enduring to the end.
