Hi I'm Kellie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and a full time mom of two busy little kids and I truly enjoy this hectic and memorable stage in my life. When I need some "me" time, I enjoy snuggling up on my couch with a cup of cocoa and watching Anne of Green Gables or Pride and Prejudice. I know. . . I am such a girl. I love crisp fall days, long summer evenings and and the sound of my husband and kids laughing. Especially when they are laughing together.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always felt a desire to be close to God. Even when I was a little girl I can recall sweet little moments when I knew God was aware of me and loved me. I can also recall times when I felt like I was not behaving in a way that was pleasing to Him, and even then, I felt his love. At age 19 I had such a desire to find the meaning of life and to find out who God really was and how I fit in the picture. I looked into all types of religions and all types of gods and theories but still had a craving to find something that felt right. Years back a friend had given me a Book of Mormon which I graciously accepted and then placed it on my book shelf to collect dust. During my search for understanding I purposefully did not look at the Book of Mormon because I did not necessarily want to be a "Mormon". One day I decided to open it up and read it. To my great surprise, even though I had only read a few chapters, my feeling of longing was gone. I guess the best way to describe my feelings are that I felt like I was finally home.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day by trying to be the kind of mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend and member of this great church that I know my Father in heaven would want me to be. I enjoy praying daily and going to church. I live my faith by trying to remember Jesus in all that I do and trying to be more like Him each day. I truly am the happiest when I am striving live my life this way and I feel very blessed to have been given the knowledge of my loving Father in heaven and His great plan of happiness.
