Hi I'm Kellee

I was born and raised in Florida. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Florida. I grew up playing softball and was lucky enough to end up playing in college at the Division 1 level. I absolutely loved being a college athlete and had the time of my life doing it. But after playing softball and completing two years of college in Utah, I have decided to serve an LDS mission. I leave in October for Mexico City, where I will serve for the next 18 months and I am super excited.

Why I am a Mormon

I have decided to make this church the center of my life because it brings me so much joy. Not only does the principles and teachings of this gospel bring me comfort and happiness, but the leaders and friends I have made in the church have changed my life. They have been some of the most powerful influences in my life and have helped through some of the most difficult times in my life. My ward has become my family and I am so grateful for the church for providing me with that. But in addition to the awesome people who are apart of the church, the principles the church teaches brings me so such happiness. It gives me core values to live my life by. It helps me understand the importance of this life. It helps me to know where I came from and where I'm going. It helps me to know that I am a child of God and that my Heavenly Father loves me. It helps me to know how important family is and that they can be together forever. It helps me to know of my worth. It helps me to know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that because of His Atonement, I can be forgiven of my sins. It helps me to get back up when I have fallen. And it gives me purpose in this life and allows me to be happy.

How I live my faith

Now that I have decided to go on a mission, I am back in Florida living at home until I leave. I have a calling to work with the young women (ages 12-18) in our ward. It is so much fun to spend time with them and plan/participate in activities with them. I love feeling like I'm someone they can come to for help at such an important time in their lives.
