Hi I'm Kathy

I am a wife and a mother. I love working with children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a small town in Idaho. I am an English as a Second Language teacher. I went on a mission to Honduras and I speak Spanish. I am a wife and a mother of three. I love to sew, cook, and garden. I love living in a small town.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the teachings of the LDS church are true. I know that God lives and that He loves me. My parents taught me about the Mormon church, but I learned for myself that it is correct. I have prayed about it and I feel a warm feeling about the church.

How I live my faith

I work with Hispanic children, at my school, to learn English. One night a week I volunteer to teach English to the Hispanic people in my town. I visit teach and I help the ladies in my church. I am in charge of having activites to help the women in my town and to make quilts to send out into the world for needy families.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

 Mormons perform baptisms for the dead because baptism is necessary for everyone to return and live with God. Not all people have had the opportunity to be taught the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and some have not had the opportunity to be baptized by a man holding the Priesthood, the power of God given to man. It would not be fair that some people could live with God and others couldn't, just because they had not been given the opportunity. After the baptism is performed, that person can decide if he will accept the baptism or not. My children just went and did baptisms for the dead. It is awesome for the people and such a great opportunity for my children to help people that are dead. It helps them to be closer to their ancestors. Show more Show less
