Hi I'm Keely

I am an aspiring author, historical re-enactor, pitbull aficionado, and a Paranormal Researcher and Investigator. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love owning a Banter Bulldogge, and have hopes of one day running some kind of Bully Breed rescue. My hobbies are out of the norm for some people, but I believe life is about learning from all different aspects, and taking in knowledge from all different walks of life and seeing the ways they correlate to our beliefs.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to a Mormon Mother and an Atheist Father. Well, maybe sometimes he was more Agnostic. I was baptized when I was 8 years old, but was never truly active. It wasn't until I was in my teens that I felt something was missing. There was a void in my soul, and I felt alone. One night, I began to read my Book of Mormon, just random passages with an earnest desire to be guided. I can remember feeling that void slowly filling as I searched the scriptures, finding those verses meant for me at the moment, telling me I wasn't alone. Telling me I was loved. As I grew into adulthood, and began to study and research Life after Death, I realized that all of the answers are right at my fingertips. I have the voices of the Prophets, both ancient and Modern affirming what I have found. My testimony has grown. I know that God Lives. Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, who was born in a manger, and sacrificed for our sins, and rose from the grave so that we may one day return to live with Him, and our Father. He lives. He loves us. He guides us today through the voice of His prophets, as He did in older times. Joseph Smith is a true Prophet of God, called to restore Christ's church in these Latter-Days. Thomas S. Monson continues that legacy of Prophecy today. The Book of Mormon is a true Testimony, and witness of Jesus Christ, and His ministry. Families are Eternal; Death is not the end. My testimony is my witness, and I shall bare it all the days of my life, gratefully, and humbly.

How I live my faith

I love to attend church on Sundays, to take the Sacrament and to feel His love for me. I love reading the scriptures, studying them, finding something new in the same verse. I have recently been delving into geneaology work at the Family History center, to find my heritage. I work in a very diverse setting, and enjoy talking to people of all faiths, to find our common ground, and to employ an understanding of each other. I love living my life in a way I know makes my Father in Heaven proud to call me His daughter.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Mormon women are amazing. There is not another society on Earth filled with as many women devoted to the lifting up of others. Women in the church are held in a sacred place, and in very high regard. We have our own society, and our own duties in the Kingdom of God, and we are encouraged to become educated, self-reliant, and to keep the nurturing aspect of our eternal nature always at the ready.
