Hi I'm Kathy Vermillion Staggs

I'm a democrat. I value the environment and my political beliefs. I value my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was a career flight attendant until I decided to stay at home and raise my family. While they were young, I volunteered in classrooms and coached sports teams. I have had the opportunity to run for local office. One of my greatest passions is volunteering in state and national politics. I am proud to be a democrat and hope to someday be a delegate at the Democratic National Convention.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe I having a loving Heavenly Father who truly cares about me and my choices. I believe our church leaders are inspired and give us the tools we need to make it in these difficult times. I believe the Earth was Divinely made and that we have been given stewardship to care for it properly so that future generations can enjoy it as we do. My church does not dictate my political beliefs, my Savior, Jesus Christ, does.

How I live my faith

I love all children. Their spirits are pure and they love effortlessly. I teach the 8 year old children. This is the age where they choose to be baptized. They are drawing closer to the Savior and His love. This relationship will carry them through life. My relationship with them helps me have hope in our future. I share with them my simple belief that my Savior lives, loves us, and asks us to do the same.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Kathy Vermillion Staggs
Mormon women are like me, strong and independent. We participate in our schools, and in local charities. We take care of our families and our communities. We love our Heavenly Father and our Savior. We live our religion through love and the service of others. In the Mormon church, women are revered. Our leaders openly admit that their wives and mothers are the centers of our homes and that without them, they would not be who they are. Our young children sing of their love for us. Our women's group sing of the strength in us. Our men's groups sing of how they cherish us. Show more Show less
