Hi I'm Stacia

I'm the daughter/granddaughter of Baptist ministers. I teach. I am a wife and mother of three. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I consider myself to be a bit of an anomaly, but it just serves as a reminder that we are all children of God. I am a Special Ed teacher who enjoys traveling and exploring with my family. I am a huge Star Trek fan and registered Democrat. I try to see many sides of an issue while maintaining a firm conviction in my beliefs.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined this church in 1982 because I found complete answers to my questions. There is a greater understanding of Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost as three separate entities making up the Godhead beginning with Genesis 1:26. I love knowing that the church is the same no matter where I attend in the world. My family is everything to me. Knowing that we can be together forever makes all the difference in my life.

How I live my faith

I serve the sisters of my ward as 2nd Counselor in Relief Society. I also participate in several activities such as Mormon Helping Hands, Girls Camp, and Indexing. I keep my actions inline with my beliefs.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Modesty and chastity keep children/teens out of complicated situations for which they are ill-equipped to cope. Dressing modestly shows a respect for oneself and others. It also prevents mixed messages. It is difficult to maintain chastity if you are displaying yourself on the open market. Parents should model the standards that they expect of their children. Modesty is a life-long habit that begins in the home and continues with a child's first shopping trip. Success means not caving in to popular styles that compromise the modesty standard, including prom dresses, wedding dresses, and statements on graphic T-shirts. While all have freedom of expression, one must consider the message that is represented. Children will eventually grow up and make sacred covenants in the temple. Their parents should be preparing them for that commitment both spiritually and socially. Treating people fairly and using kind words, along with appropriate dress, will leave a positive lasting impression. Show more Show less
