This is Young Life Stamford

Meet Kaylee

My husband Cody and I moved to Stamford from Gilbert, AZ for his job this past June after getting married in March. I can safely say 2017 has been a year of transition!

It's also been a year of blessing thus far, as we are growing to love the East Coast, and God is growing me in love for the adolescents of Stamford. 

Meeting Jesus 
I've been involved with Young Life since I was 16. Questioning God's existence and dealing with anxiety, I heard the Gospel on a camp trip in Colorado. I decided then- June of 2011- to give my life to Christ and have been following him ever since. I've been a Young Life leader for the last five years because I believe it still works in reaching "the furthest out kids"(like me).  

The Call to YL Staff
I am called to step in as staff in Stamford so that I can go where kids are and show them what real love looks like. My husband has been leading for years as well, and we have loved our time volunteering with Stamford since we arrived.

I'm praying for this year and this area and am excited to see what God is going to do with the resources of Stamford in the lives of kids.​
