Hi I'm Kelsey Elden

I am from Littleton, Colorado. I am serving a full-time mission in Honolulu, Hawaii. I am a Mormon and I love it!! Aloooooha!

About Me

I am currently a sophomore at Brigham Young University studying Marketing and Advertising. I enjoy dancing, hiking, dogs and dessert. All good things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints or nicknamed, "Mormon". I am a Mormon because this is Jesus Christ's true church on the Earth today. I did not grow up as a member of the church, but I have come to know that this gospel is the best way for us to feel peace and joy in this life. God truly loves us and we are all His children, I know that to be true. I know that the book of Mormon is the most correct of any book on the Earth and that it was translated by Joseph Smith- a true prophet of God. I am a Mormon because I know that our savior Jesus Christ atoned for us all so that we may live free of sin and enjoy the blessings of eternal life with those whom we love most. We are so greatly loved by our Father in Heaven. I am a Mormon because I have felt His loving reach to which there is no denying. If we seek Him, we will find Him!

How I live my faith

"Wherefore, if a man have faith he must needs have hope; for without faith there cannot be any hope." -Moroni 7:42. I live my faith by striving to exercise trust in Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father and His plan for me. I strive to turn my will over to His so that I can be who He wants me to be!

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?
