Hi I'm Kennedy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Canada and raised in Arizona. I love ice cream and spending time with my best friend, aka husband! I'm a cosmetologist, a basketball player, and I love to bake.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the happiness that the gospel of Jesus Christ gives me. I am grateful for the guidance the gospel has given me throughout my life and I know that what I have been taught is true. Like many others, I have struggled with different circumstances in my life, but as I have turned to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, I am always guided in the right direction. I love that I will never be confused and I will always know who I am, why I am here, and where I am going.

How I live my faith

By being an example. In a world where there is confusion, hatred, darkness, filth and so many other terrible things surrounding us everyday, I have chosen to be a light. I have made it my goal to help those who are lost and be a person of refuge. I want to be someone that can show others that there is another way of life. I want others to know that amongst the craziness of the world, there is refuge and a way to find peace. Although, this life may be tough, I want to show those around me that there can be happiness in the tough times, the sad times, and at all times.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Kennedy
We believe that ALL MEN and women can be saved through the ordinances and principles of the gospel. One of these ordinances is baptism. Now, how would it be fair for those who have not heard of the gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints or have not had an opportunity to be baptized be denied the chance because they have passed on? We believe that by performing baptisms for the dead, we act as a proxy for those who have passed on and are baptized in God's name. Because we also believe that life continues on after death, we believe that once they have been baptized by the authority of one who holds the priesthood of God and have been confirmed a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, that it will then be up to them to choose for themselves whether or not they accept the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is by performing baptisms for the dead, that all men and women are given the opportunity to hear and partake of the gospel and not be forgotten. Show more Show less

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Kennedy
By talking to a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We will be more than happy and able to help assist you. We will refer you to the missionaries and you will be able to be taught by them the history and principles of the Church. If you find that you believe what you are taught and want to move forward, they will offer you the opportunity to become baptized, which is the gateway to becoming a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
