Hi I'm Stacy

About Me

I'm 42 years old, engaged to be married and work full time as a corporate trainer. I love to speak Spanish and some day I'd love to earn a Masters degree in something!

Why I am a Mormon

Knowing that I come from a Heavenly Father who loves me and wants me to return to his presence just makes sense to me. The fact that after centuries of confusion there was a planned restoration just makes sense to me. The Lord would not leave us on our own to figure out these crazy times! There is a prophet on the earth today who has been chosen to be the Lord's mouthpiece. I have felt the Spirit of the Lord confirm these teachings in my heart when I first learned about the church as a youth and in many special moments since.

How I live my faith

I am an adviser in the Young Women program (for girls aged 12-18 years old). I teach Sunday lessons to our group of 14-15 year-old girls and attend weekly activity meetings. My responsibility is to help them learn how to put the gospel into action in their lives and to strengthen and encourage them to make righteous choices.

Why do Mormons believe in “eternal life?”

Stacy
Our Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ, are eternal. We are our Heavenly Father's spirit children, therefore we also, are eternal. Our lives have purpose and meaning because we are his children. "Eternal Life" is the very definition of his existence; all that he is, all that he has, and all that he does. We can share that if we are faithful to his plan. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Stacy
Because our Heavenly Father loves us so much, his Plan includes a way for ALL of his children to return to live with Him. We read in the Bible that we must be baptized in order to live with Him again, yet so many of his children who have lived upon the earth never heard the gospel nor had the opportunity to be baptized. They are not lost! Although they have passed on, their spirit is alive and they can learn and make choices. They just can't physically enter the waters of baptism. They are taught in the spirit and we who have bodies perform the ordinance on their behalf. Show more Show less
