Hi I'm Kelly Huh

I'm a Korean- New Zealander and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Korean-New Zealander and live in Auckland! I started my undergraduate degree at the University of Auckland last year but decided to pause my studies to go on a mission. I was called to the England, Birmingham mission and can't wait to serve. In my spare time I like to dance, write and make things. I love teaching and have been tutoring English as a side job on and off. I also help out at an acute adult mental health unit.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know this Church is true. I have read and prayed about the Book of Mormon, and I feel the Holy Spirit guide me everyday. I feel such a great love from my Heavenly Father and the Savior, Jesus Christ, stronger than any other feeling I have known. It is such a comforting feeling to know that we have a God, who loves us so much and knows everything about us. I love being able to trust in God with all my heart to lead me, and I have always been led in the right direction with so much love and guidance.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to my church meetings and spending time reading and learning about the Book of Mormon, our gospel and beliefs. I am continuously learning! Previously I've been a 'ward missionary' where I have gone with the Sister Missionaries to visit people in our ward, or people interested in our church. These visits allowed us to get to know their interests, struggles and create good relationships. It was a privilege to meet people from all different backgrounds and beliefs and find common ground. I was so grateful to meet all of those people. At the moment I am a 'YSA assistant'. The YSA is a group of young adults aged 18-30 years old. We have fun activities and spiritually fulfilling lessons which help us to build our faith as well as form friendships and relationships with each other. As an assistant, I help plan some of activities as well as discuss issues that our YSA may have. Through this I have come to have such an appreciation for our lovely YSA and our leaders who care so much for us. Being one of the youngest of the group I was initially terrified, but soon came to grow a greater confidence and familiarity by helping others. It has truly been a rewarding experience.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Kelly Huh
Mormon women are amazing! We are all different and come from different cultural backgrounds. Part of what makes Mormon women united despite differences in appearance, age, education, socioeconomic status or ethnicity is that we love our Heavenly Father, aim to strengthen our families and one another. Mormons believe that men and women have sacred roles that are divinely appointed. They are equal in that they need to both put in 100% effort with each other and their families, they both need to love and care. However, we believe that women are primarily responsible for caring for their children, and men are primarily responsible to provide necessities and protection. This is not always possible, and everything is within reason, according to the family circumstances. Together they bring up their children and work to strengthen their family. Show more Show less
