Hi I'm Kacie Taylor

I love my family. I worked with special needs students for eleven years. I'm an author and an artist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been a member of the Church my whole life. My parents and leaders have been great examples to me. Their guidance has inspired me come to know for myself that the teachings of the Gospel are true. For many years, I worked with special needs children in various schools. These special spirits have the ability to bring a unique joy to the lives of those around them. I firmly believe they are choice spirits and I cannot wait to meet them again when their minds and bodies are made perfect. Now I'm an author who writes fun young adult fantasy books that coincide with the standards I hold so dear. I also dabble in various types of art, mostly just for fun. I'm married to a wonderful man and we hope to start a family soon. I enjoy writing, reading, cooking, drawing, painting, and spending time with family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky to be born into a family who was already strong in the Church. That doesn't mean I was automatically converted. Each member of the Church, whether they are born into it or find it later in life, must be personally converted. This means taking the things that are taught and applying them to your life. It's important to find out for yourself through prayer to know if it is true. I've read the Book of Mormon and have received testimony from the Holy Ghost that the words within it are true. I pray daily to seek guidance and give thanks for my blessings. I have to work at it every day because other forces are working against me just as much. I am not perfect. I have weaknesses and make mistakes just like everyone else, but I know I can use the Atonement and repent. It is there for each of us. I have a testimony that the Book of Mormon is true and that the prophet Joseph Smith translated it through the power of God. I know families can be together forever. I know my Savior lives. I know He and Heavenly Father love me. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints brings me joy and that is something I believe everyone is striving for.

How I live my faith

Living the teachings of the Gospel is not always easy, but I try the best I can. Most of my Church callings have centered on my talents, mainly the piano, which has been fun. I currently work with children in Nursery (ages 18 months-3 years). They are sweet little spirits with lots of energy! We play with toys and provide a simple lesson to help their little testimonies grow.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Kacie Taylor
This is one of my favorite teachings of the Church! In 2009, my husband and I, after being found worthy by our leaders, were married and sealed in the Salt Lake Temple, which is something more than a traditional marriage. It means we are literally sealed together forever. As long as we continue to live righteously and adhere to the scared promises we made to each other and to Heavenly Father, we will be husband and wife in the life to come. Not only that, any children we have will be sealed to us. The sealing is a very special and scared thing. It is eternal. It is one of the steps in the journey to live with Heavenly Father again. This wonderful promise is intended for all who live worthily. Even couples who are married and have children already can someday go through the temple and receive this blessing. Show more Show less
