Chat With a Mormon Online
I'm a graduate student, and I'm working toward becoming an art teacher in public education. I love hiking, the theatre, and music... especially any song with a banjo.
I have a firm testimony in Jesus Christ, the Atonement, and the Plan of Salvation. I've come to know that Joseph Smith was called to restore the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth, and translate the Book of Mormon. When I live my life in order with the gospel principles-- it seems as though a light has been shed on what it is I should be doing and what my purpose is. I'm grateful everyday that I have knowledge of the true and living gospel.
Prayer is such an amazing way to connect with our Father in Heaven. I have come to know that our Heavenly Father hears each prayer, even those we say silently in our hearts. I try to make a point to get down on my knees to pray, morning and night, but I often find that I pray driving in my car, or walking to class. It's the small prayers that get me through the day and keep the Spirit with me. When I have the Spirit with me, my perspective on life is clearer, and I'm a much happier person.
Every Sunday I attend a singles ward where I am surrounded by young adults who are all trying to live the same standards and supporting one another. I also attend an Institute of Religion class throughout the week. I've noticed when I commit to daily prayer, scripture study, and I attend church regularly, I always have a better week filled with the Spirit.
