Chat With a Mormon Online
I am a mostly happy youngish woman, daughter, sister, and auntie! I love to create..I love to talk...I love to learn and to be taught, I love to bake, sew, paint, draw, write stories, I have a very vivid and active imagination. I love good music and love to sing, I appreciate books that inspire me and that help me ponder upon life and how blessed I am.
I am a member of the Church- because I read the book of mormon, I followed Moroni's promise found in Moroni 10:4-5 to pray and ask if the Book of Mormon was true. as a 14year old young woman, I recieved a powerful and overwhelming feeling in my heart and mind that this Book was true, that it is the word of God. I then continued to study and learn each day, and apply those things I learned, which I still do today! My testimony needs to be fed daily- just as my body needs food to live. I know the Church and its principles are correct and true, I know we are led by a living prophet who speaks God's will to us today.
Hope to me- is never giving up!! I hope for many things, I have Hope in my Savior and his atonement, that its power is able to allow me to grow and to change. I have hope in the covenants Ive made. I hope one day to have a forever family, to teach faith and hope to them.
Many wonderful blessings have come to me through faith in Jesus Christ, I am so grateful to know My Savior is aware of me, that He loves me. Being a member of the church has helped me to develop many abilities and talents, to have the opportunity to serve others, to see others lives changed forever through their developing faith.
I was baptized as a little girl of eight years old, I wore a white dress, which my mum made for me, I felt like a princess! The one strong memory I have of my baptism is just after, when I came back into the chapel and was given the gift of the Holy Ghost, as hands were laid upon my head, I felt a warmth from my head to my toes, in every part of me, I have never forgotten that feeling.
Prayer is like breathing to me...I need to be able to pray everyday! I am so grateful to begin and end my day with prayer..And I might add lots of prayers in between, silent prayers of the heart, inner dialogue with my Heavenly father..Prayer helps me face the day, to feel strength. When I pray I can feel of my Savior's love, and know that He walks with me, Prayer brings me peace and reassurance.
A couple of years ago now, My brother and his wife, were expecting their first child, we were eager and excited to meet the new addition to our family. We recieved a phonecall that would affect us forever..My brother called to say that their little baby had been stillborn..Time seemed to go very slow, it was really hard to process the information, at first it was hard to accept this, How could this happen? I just remember my parents getting us all together for a prayer, we felt peace and we know that one day we will see him again because we believe the family is eternal. At the time I found great solace in the Book of Mormon, I read in Moroni about the fact that there was no need for infant baptisms, that little children were perfect. This was a great comfort for me, to all of us as a family.
At the moment I have been given the very great honour of teaching, assisting, serving all women ages 18 and over in my ward, with other women who support and help me, we teach and testify of Jesus Christ, and help each woman to develop her own personal testimony, to help each sister develop faith and learn to serve others, to help each woman to be good influences on their families - so their homes and families can be strong in all aspects of life. I help to organize weekday activites where we learn various skills such as how to maintain a home, budgeting etc, how to store food, how to plan meals etc.
