Hi I'm Kaytie Kerr

I'm from Arizona. I'm a harpist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a musician my entire life. I started playing the piano at a young age, then began to play the harp when I was six years old. I competed in many voice competitions throughout high school and loved running cross country and track. I attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah for a semester before choosing to study Harp Performance at the University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have seen God's Hand in my life. I feel so much comfort through reading the Book of Mormon and the Bible. Our Father in Heaven lives. He truly does listen when we pray and He will answer our prayers. I am a Mormon because I believe in the love that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for every person on this earth. Jesus Christ made it possible for us to return to live with our Father in Heaven one day and for us to be with our families for all eternity. Because of this church, I have never felt alone. There have been many times in my life where I felt like nobody understood what I was going through and nobody understood how alone I felt. Whether it was having a loved one pass away, moving to a new country all by myself, or trying to figure out exactly what I was supposed to be doing in my life, I always knew that even if nobody around me understood how I felt, Christ always would. This gospel has brought me so much peace and comfort through my life. Because of Him, I know that none of us ever need to walk alone. None of us will ever be alone. The love our Savior has for each of us is eternal. Our Father in Heaven knows each of us. He knows our struggles, He knows our sorrows, He knows our joys, and He knows what we need even more than we do! He will always lead us in a direction that will help us grow. He is our advocate and our greatest support in life. "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." -Proverbs 3:5-6 I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ, live. As we sincerely draw closer to Christ, we will be able to return to live with our Heavenly Father and our families for all eternity.

How I live my faith

I have always loved participating in my church. I have taught Sunday school classes to college-age students, organized church choirs, played the organ during church meetings, and have helped out in a youth organization of young women ages 12-18. Much of the work I have done through the church has involved planning and participating in activities to benefit our community and serve the people around us.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon temples? What goes on in Mormon temples?

Kaytie Kerr
Only some Mormons are allowed into temples because all who enter the temples must be worthy to do so. Nothing about the temple is secret; however, everything about the temple is sacred. Because of the sacred nature of these buildings, everyone is required to have an interview to determine how qualified they are to enter the temple based on the standards of moral conduct we live every day. In the temple, members learn more about our eternal purpose, receive sacred ordinances, have the opportunity to be sealed as a family for all eternity, and provide ordinances for people who died without the ability to receive these ordinances for themselves while on earth.
