Kelly’s Extraordinary Journey To Finally Connect With God…
Kelly Nieto is one of those rare Catholic speakers who has the unique ability and talent to use the power of humor, wisdom and God to touch people deeply and inspire at the same time. “Boring” or “Lackluster” is not in Kelly’s vocabulary!
But Kelly’s faith in God was not always present. For 35 long years, Kelly wanted nothing to do with God. She was an agnostic “New Ager” who participated in séances and used psychics on a regular basis. Pretty Woo Woo stuff indeed! Jesus, Christianity, and Faith were things that Kelly shunned, and even made fun of at times.
After college Kelly became Miss Michigan, Miss America runner-up, and Miss America National Talent Winner. This success led Kelly down a path to world travel and great money as a musical comedienne opening for legendary country acts like Garth Brooks, Charlie Daniels and The Judds. Fast forward a few years, Kelly got married to her amazing husband, had two wonderful and healthy kids, and was able to live in a gorgeous home that most would be envious of.
This lack of peace and purpose led Kelly down a spiraling path to depression and emptiness that began to consume her entire life and well being. It was in these darkest moments that Kelly found out her mother was going to die. For the first time in her life she reached out to God and cried out in desperation, “I don’t know who you are or what you are, but I will give you my life if you save her and show me the truth!”
And that’s when Kelly’s life changed forever…
Fast forward a few months…Kelly kept her vow and gave her life to Christ.
