Chat With a Mormon Online
I'm a daughter, sister, aunt and friend. I work hard so I can play hard. I started taking French when I was in the 7th grade and stuck with it through college. I even moved to France all by my lonesome after graduating with my undergraduate. I have had great opportunities to see and experience many countries, cultures and people all over the world.
I am Mormon because I WANT to be Mormon. I was raised in the Church, but definitely had to come to believe and understand its placement in my life on my own. My life has purpose - even if I don't know the full magnitude of what that purpose is - I sure am enjoying the journey of finding out. I can't do this on my own and what joy I have to know my Savior Jesus Christ is by my side each step of the way.
There are several reason why missions are served. First and foremost is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Another, is to inform. There are a lot of misconceptions about Mormons. There are a lot of misconceptions about all religions. The only way for any religion to clear those up is to teach. Missionaries are out there to teach, inform and serve.
For the past two years I have been serving as a leader over a women's organization. We participate in everything from serving the sick and needy, playing sports, book clubs, teaching lessons on Sunday and making home visits each month to strengthen friendships and leave a positive message.
