Hi I'm April

I'm married, a mom and a piano teacher. I love to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have 3 kids. We all love to make music together thanks to my husband and myself. Through my family's support when I was growing up, I learned to play the piano and to sing in various groups which helped me to attend college. I have been able to use my education to help others learn music. I teach piano to children and I volunteer in my church to teach little children to sing. I love to watch the children I teach grow in their musical abilities and to see them get excited when they master a song. I also enjoy running, skiing, cooking and traveling. I have traveled all over Europe and the Caribbean and can't wait to continue my travels to other countries.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because of the happiness it brings me. My marriage and family is stronger because of our beliefs and we feel the direct blessings and strength that come from living the gospel. I have a testimony that this gospel is true and I have felt God's love for me and his blessing so many times that I could never deny his existence.

How I live my faith

I try to follow the Savior's example and help others. He is always helping me and has done so much for us already we could never repay him so I have a desire to do what I can for others. I volunteering as a music leader in my church's youth program and try to serve others in my church, in my neighborhood and community.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Anyone is allowed to go inside the temple, there are just some preparation requirements one must do before they can enter. Because of sacred things taught there the church wants you to be prepared in a spiritual way to understand these things. So one must be a member of the church and found spiritually ready to enter the temple. Show more Show less
