Hi I'm Ann Kerr

I love photography and digital scrapbooking. I make books about my family and our ancestors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a grandmother of 17 children. When I was raising my own four children I taught them to pray, be honest, get a good education, serve missions, and get married in the temple. Now that I'm older and an empty-nester, I not so involved in the hurry and scurry of everyday life, but I seem to have the unofficial role of adviser, or counselor. One of my children calls me or my husband every day to talk, share, and ask questions. I love being a mother and grandmother.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family and baptized at the age of eight. Following the teachings I have learned over the years has guided my life and helped me make good decisions. I am forever grateful for that.

How I live my faith

I'm heavily involved in Public Affairs in the Church. That means I have opportunities to share our beliefs and "light" (as I call it) with our community. I submit articles and pictures to newspapers and they are almost always published. I make videos that are enjoyed and appreciated by various groups where I give presentations. I am a skilled amateur photographer and like to help people who need good pictures, but can't afford them. The teachings of Christ guide all of my activities.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Ann Kerr
My husband and I often get this question since we are so involved with our children, even though we have to fly around the country to see most of them. We love our children and grandchildren, and our ancestors, and want to live with them eternally. Show more Show less

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Ann Kerr
We have a "Family Proclamation" which clearly defines these roles. "The father is to preside over his family in love and righteousness and is responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for his family. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children." Show more Show less
