Hi I'm Karla Bautista

I was born in Honduras. I grew up in North Carolina. I am a Mathematical Sciences student. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the mother to a beautiful four year old girl who works and goes to school full time. I love dancing and spending time with friends! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt with every cell in my body that this is the true church. I know it because of the love that I feel for others. I know it because I have felt the love that Heavenly Father has for me. I cannot describe with words how amazing it has been to live the gospel, and to know that I am in tune with Heavenly Father's will.

How I live my faith

I teach a Sunday school class for the youth of my church. I try to go to church every Sunday, and I also try to participate in as many service projects as I can.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Karla Bautista
Heavenly Father is a fair God. He will not break His own rules... when we willingly decide to disobey Him, we are not worthy of being in His presence. It is only when we repent of our sins and decide to turn our life around that He can forgive us and allow us to one day be in His presence. The remission of our sins is possible because Jesus Christ satisfied the need for justice and suffered for the punishment that should have been ours. In a way, it was as is He were saying "Father, I will pay for what they did." We can only take advantage of this amazing gift when we decide to believe in Jesus Christ and take His name upon us.
