Chat With a Mormon Online
I love to read, cook, travel, visit museums, and spend time with my husband and family. My dream is to move to my husband's home country in Europe, raise a family, and work in a museum.
"Men are that they might have joy" (2 Nephi 2:25) I am happiest when I live gospel principles and follow the commandments of God. I am a Mormon because serving Jesus Christ and following his teachings has brought me more happiness than any other thing or person on the Earth.
When I was twelve years old I wanted to read the Book of Mormon for the first time all the way through by myself before my thirteenth birthday. For the first few months I did a great job getting through it but I soon forgot about my goal and stopped reading. However, 3 days before my 13th birthday I remembered my goal and began reading the Book of Mormon again. I was determined to finish it in time! Over the next three days I read the Book of Mormon from front cover to back cover. It was a difficult undertaking especially for someone who had never read that much before. But every moment I spent reading the Book of Mormon was worth it. On my 13th birthday I finished the Book of Mormon for the first time and decided to follow the promise in the last chapter of the Book of Moroni verses 4-5 to pray to God and ask if the Book of Mormon was true. I received an answer that day and I knew that the Book of Mormon and all of its teachings were true! Since my 13th birthday I have read the Book of Mormon many times and each time I am reminded of its truthfulness and the love that God has for me and each of His children.
I live my faith each day by sharing it with others through word and deed. A simple smile, a note, a word of encouragement or anything that would lift someone else are examples of how I live my faith.
