Hi I'm Kaye Steffler

I grew up in the small farming town of Paul, Idaho. I graduated from BYU with a degree in English. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of six children, three boys and three girls, and 20 grandchildren. I was a stay-at-home mom until all of my children were in school, then I worked at a small newspaper for 15 years before retiring. I watch one of my granddaughters twice a week and enjoy reading, gardening and making bread. I have a small orchard and berry bushes that I make jam and jelly from. I juice everything I can and preserve it in bottles to make a yummy drink that everyone seems to enjoy. I enjoy water aerobics twice a week and working in my garden. I grow vegetables and can them. Last year I started most of my plants from seed in my small greenhouse. I earned the title of Master Gardener by attending classes sponsored by the county extension agency.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family and have participated in church my entire life. I gained a testimony when I was a youth and it has continued to grow as I have served and participated in church activities. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and continue to learn of the truths of Christ's church each time I read it. I know Joseph Smith was inspired of God and under His direction, restored Christ's church as it was in the meridian of time. I know Thomas S. Monson is a prophet today and continues to lead Christ's church as He would direct it if He were on the earth today. I know He lives and loves every one of His children and wants only good things for them. I choose to serve Him.

How I live my faith

I have enjoyed working with the children, youth and women at church. Music is a big part of my church service. I lead the music and sing in various choirs. I have held leadership positions with the children and women where I helped organize events that involved the members and community.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Kaye Steffler
We believe families are forever. That means the family unit continues after we die. We love our children so much that we want them to be with us forever. It is through the family that we experience our greatest happiness. I would do anything I can for my family. Show more Show less
