Hi I'm Kylee

I grew up in Utah and have lived here my whole life. I love teaching children, and being with my family. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a cousin of many, and forever a friend to all of those I meet. I am a college graduate with my bachelors degree. I am an elementary school teacher. I am also a dance instructor and have been dancing since I was three years old. Some of my hobbies are dancing, arts and crafts, exercising, Ultimate Frisbee, shopping, campfires, four wheeling, and spending time with family or my friends. I have been a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole entire life and I am proud to say that. I grew up in a loving family and a true religion that has helped to shape my life into what I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is the true way to live life. I know that the gospel is true and the scriptures as well. We have all been through tough times and so have I. A few years ago I was having some medical problems. Because of these problems I was having a hard time getting through school. It took quite a few months for me to heal and during this time I would kept wondering why these things were happening to me? I felt like I was not healing and that I would be like this forever. My faith during this time was not so great. I kept on praying for an answer and what I should do to be happy again. Still to this day I have not gotten an answer. I have however gotten healed and am better. I would never want to go back to that time in my life but I would never want to switch my problems with anyone else's. I believe that all things happen to us for a reason. We may not find out the reason as to why these things happen in this life but we will in the next.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite callings that I had in church was being a primary teacher. I would teach the seven and eight year olds every Sunday. I enjoyed putting the lessons together every week. In a way it helped teach me more about the gospel and the teachings of Jesus Christ. Some of the things that I taught to the children were things that I never knew, so the lessons taught me as well. It was great to go into primary every Sunday to see Heavenly Father's little children and listen to the songs they would sing. It brought such a great joy to me. Now I attend a sigles ward which is great! I attend choir practices because music is a way that I feel the spirit. It brings so much happiness, warmth, and joy to me and I love it. I also attend as many church activities during the week as I can. These activities are so fun. Sometimes they are just playing games or sports, or sometimes it is doing service. Either way I enjoy the time spent doing these church activities. I also live my faith by doing little things throughout the day. I make sure to read the scriptures every day. Even if it is just one verse. I make sure to say a prayer before I go to bed or throughout the day if I am ever feeling down or worried about something. A few times during the week I listen to a conference talk while I am getting ready for the day. I love when I listen to conference talks. These talks are a great reminder of how we should be living our lives. Another way that I live by my faith is being kind to others and smiling at people even if I don't know them.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Death is not the end. Death is really a beginning—another step forward in Heavenly Father’s plan for His children. Someday, like everyone else, your physical body will die. But your spirit does not die, it goes to the spirit world, where you will continue to learn and progress and may be with loved ones who have passed on. Death is a necessary step in your progression, just as your birth was. Sometime after your death, your spirit and your body will be reunited—never to be separated again. This is called resurrection, and it was made possible by the death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ (see 1 Corinthians 15:20-22). Show more Show less
