Hi I'm Mary

I live in Nebraska. My passion is working with special needs kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Nebraska & love it! Football season is one of my favorite times of the year. I like almost all sports including hockey, but only play Tennis. I grew up in a family of 5 children & they are some of my best friends. I work for an elementary school where I work with children with specail needs. I go to work every day knowing that I can make a difference in their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church & always felt that it was true. As I grew older I understood & truly gained a testimony of its truthfullness. I took the teaching of the church & applied it into all aspects of my life. As i took the time to put all I had into living the gospel I noticed the changes in my attitude & in the rest of my life. As I set out to be an example to the people around me I noticed the impact that I could make on those around me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the teachings of the gospel & the commandments of the Lord. By doing something as simple as my visiting teaching my testimony grows. Family Home Evening in my Young Single Adult ward is an amazing way to get to know the members around me, for those friendships to grow. When I serve others I feel my saviors love & come to understand a little more how much he loves me.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Mary
We perform baptisms for the dead because it is something they can not do for themselves. Being baptised by the proper authority is a saving ordenence that we must all have. Baptisms for the dead are performed by Church members in temples of the Lord. The temple is a dedicated house of the Lord & within those walls we can perform ordinences that are essential to our eternal salvation. Doing baptisms for relatives that have passed on is an experience that is hard to discribe. The feeling of joy that I can take timeout of my busy life & do something for them that they can no longer do for themselves. I know that doing these ordinences that I have done have changed their lives & continues to affect mine aswell. Show more Show less
