Chat With a Mormon Online
I am currently serving in the Maryland Baltimore Mission. Before, I was at BYU studying Early Childhood Education. I want to be a kindergarten teacher. I love reading and I also really love music. I play six different instruments, including the flute, bass clarinet, bassoon, oboe, tenor sax, and the alto sax.
I am a Mormon because being a member of this church teaches us that we need to be following Christ everyday. I have seen so many blessings in my life as I have learned about my Savior and as I have tried to be better at following Him. My testimony has been strengthened so much because of the Book of Mormon. By reading it everyday and by following what it teaches I have become a much better person. There are promises made to everyone in the Book of Mormon that I have seen kept in my life. One of my favorites being that as long as we are faithful the Lord will show us His tender mercies and that we will have the strength that we will need. The Lord loves us so much and by being a member of this church I know that my life is so different than it would be without it.
Forgiveness is one of the teachings of the Savior that has influenced my life so much. Not only forgiving others but forgiving myself. I have had times when I needed to repent and I would but I would not feel forgiveness at all. This is only because I could not forgive myself, and I went and my Bishop helped me learn that we can be forgiveness. I am grateful that I have been taught this principle.
Just by being myself and striving to be Christlike every single day. Following Christ is a daily task and everyday we need to be working harder to become the best we can be. I can be an example to those I am around and by just smiling I can help others have a better day. Serving others is also important. Serving and not expecting anything in return is a way to show others Christ's love.
