Hi I'm Kelli

About Me

My husband and I have been married for 9 years, we have 4 beautiful children ages 7,6,4, and 2. I am an apartment manager and have been doing that for over 6 years now. I love to sing, act, write, play with my kids, sew, and read. I love being outdoors, playing sports, running, anything active really. I like to laugh :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the church is true. I joined the church in 2001 after attending for almost a year and meeting with the Missionaries. One night I was having a particularly difficult day, my husband offered to kneel in prayer with me and I did. It was the first time we prayed together, I asked to know if the Book of Mormon was true and if the church was true. Instantly I felt warmth in my heart and knew without a doubt that this was an answer to my prayer. I felt as though I was receiving a huge hug from the Holy Ghost and it was confirmed to me that it was true and that I knew it all along. I could never deny that feeling that I had and over time my testimony has continued to grow and strengthen. I daily can see the hand of the Lord in my life.

How I live my faith

Currently I have two callings in the church. I am the Housing Coordinator, so when people move to the area I am able to help them find a place to live within their budget and specifics they are looking for. It has been such a great experience to serve those who are coming to the area and helping them find good neighborhoods and become familiar with an area far from what they are used to. I am also an Activity Days Leader, which means I get to do fun activities with the girls ages 8-11 years old and help them work toward meeting goals and standards they set. It has been such a blessing to work with the youth, I love their energy and enthusiasm for life! The youth programs in the church are such a great resource for families and I look forward to my oldest daughter joining Activity Days this year!

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Kelli
We can increase our Faith by reading our scriptures daily, keeping a journal of our blessings, and praying daily to our Father in Heaven. I have found that by learning more about the Atonement of Christ I have developed a greater Faith and a deeper love for my Savior. It helps to keep a journal so that in times that you lack faith or waiver, you can look to times you felt an excess of faith and feel that love of Christ again. Show more Show less
