Hi I'm Kelli

I'm an eccentric who loves to laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always loved people, art, music, and food. My philosophy is that strangers are either friends you haven't met yet, or people who will teach you something. I cant say that every person I've ever met has become my friend, but every person is completely unique, and I don't regret meeting any one of them. My love of art started from when I was very young, and covers many different subjects. I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, and have always loved listening to and making music. I am currently serving an 18 month mission in Idaho, and am so grateful for the opportunity to teach people about Christ's restored Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the church, and relied mostly on the testimony of my parents as I grew up. As a teenager, I began to question my own faith, and decided to look into some other churches to find out which was true. I learned a lot during this time, and came to appreciate the different perspectives that these churches provided, but I still felt as if something was missing. This went on for some time until I was faced with a very difficult time in my youth. I felt completely hopeless, and one day after crying in my room for what seemed like hours, I said my first sincere prayer, and I asked Christ to be with me. I then felt two arms wrap themselves around me, and I felt the Savior weep with me. I knew then in my heart that the church was true, and that Jesus Christ lives, and understands every pain that we endure. I have never doubted the Gospel since.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to support those around me, and try to show them Christ-like love. It is so important to make people feel welcome and loved, because so often this world can make us feel alienated, or completely abandoned. Taking the time to let people know that we haven't given up on them, and that they can come back from any trial or sin they might have committed, is an important part of being a Latter Day Saint. Simply sitting with someone in church and letting them know that they have a friend can help someone feel at ease, so they have a chance to feel the spirit and get the most out of coming to church. Christ would go to the broken people first, and so I try to do the same.
