Hi I'm Aubree

I am a married mother of 7. A real estate agent. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Phoenix where I was raised by convert parents. I have four brothers that all have served in the Army. I met my husband in Tempe and we have been married since 1998. We now have 7 children. Two boys and 5 girls. I have served in different callings in the church and enjoy teaching my children about our Savior. I enjoy seeing each of my children grow in their talents. My favorite thing is to spend time with my family and with my husband on walks and dates.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by parents who are both converts to the church. Each of their testimonies of how they joined the church and their understanding of the bible helped me understand who Jesus is and there is more than this earth life. I had a great foundation from my parents and have gained a testimony by living the teachings of Jesus. I know I am not perfect but I can turn to the scriptures for added strength and understanding of who I am. I have a testimony of our Saviors Atonement and know we can return to live with Him again.

How I live my faith

I have served in a lot of areas of the church. I currently coordinate the Relief Society Visiting Teaching program where sisters visit each other helping them in their roles as women with temporal and spiritual needs. Relief Society is one of the oldest and largest women's organizations in the world; Motto "Charity never faileth" . I try to live by this motto as the Savior would have me each day.. I live each day with the teachings of the Savior the best way I can. I know if I make a mistake I can become clean through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. The Savior is my best friend. I am grateful to attend church each week to be lifted and edified, to learn how I can improve myself and my family. I always look forward for Sundays because I can wash away my sins when I partake of the Sacrament and renew my baptismal covenants. I am grateful also to live close to the temple. I enjoy feeling the peace there and I can find further direction in my life.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Baptism is the first step to follow the Savior. Every person that lives on the earth needs to be baptized to live in the kingdom of God. Our Heavenly Father loves each one of His children. Not everyone has had the opportunity to be baptized by proper authority during their life on earth. He has provided a way for all of His children to return, however everyone has the choice to accept to be baptized, whether they are passed on or living. The baptisms for the dead that are performed are done in proxy by a member of the church in the temple. Whether or not the or those that have been deceased accept the baptism is entirely up to them. Baptisms for the dead have also been performed in biblical times found in Corinthians 15:29. Show more Show less
