Hi I'm Kaleigh!

I am from Montana and love the gospel. I will be serving a mission in Florianopolis Brazil Oct. 2016-Apr. 2018.

About Me

I am from Montana and love anything outdoors. I love to write music that is uplifting and brings joy to others. And smiling is my favorite.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this religion. Throughout my years, I have come to know that this church is true. I can feel the Saviors love for me. Being a Mormon brings me a peace that no other thing in this life could. I know who I am, where I came from, and where I am going.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a ward missionary in my local YSA ward. I report to the Brazil MTC October 11th as a full time missionary in Florianopolis.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Kaleigh!
Gordon B. Hinckley, prior President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said: “Our major source of revenue is the ancient law of the tithe. Our people are expected to pay 10 percent of their income to move forward the work of the Church. The remarkable and wonderful thing is that they do it. Tithing is not so much a matter of dollars as it is a matter of faith. It becomes a privilege and an opportunity, not a burden. Our people believe in the word of God as set forth in the book of Malachi, that the Lord will open the windows of heaven and pour down blessings that there will not be room enough to receive them (Malachi 3:8-10). Moving and touching is the testimony of Latter-day Saints throughout the world concerning this the Lord’s law for the financing of His work.” Show more Show less

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

Kaleigh!
The Apostle Paul taught that “neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord” (1 Corinthians 11:11). In the sight of God, and in the marriage relationship, men and women are equally important. By divine design, fathers are to watch over and teach their families in love and righteousness. They are to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers should help one another as equal partners. (Taken from “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” which was written by twelve modern Apostles through inspiration from the Lord.) Both parents should be involved in the care and discipline of children. It is important to agree on family goals and be willing to work toward them with their children. If parents are not in harmony and do not have mutual respect, the children may become confused and lose confidence in their parents. Both parents should be unified and intimately involved in the upbringing of their children. Show more Show less
