Chat With a Mormon Online
I am happily married to a lovely woman and have four great children. I like to play golf in order to relax and have some fun away from work. I also spend a large slice of my time with my family. We swim together, read, joke, and do those good things which make a family succeed.
My parents joined the LDS (mormon) church in the 1970s so I grew up with the things I needed to build upon later in life. One thing which was important to me was feeling within peace and warmth from being in the right places at the right time. For example, going to church with my parents helped me feel this way. That inner peace remains with me as I try hard to choose important things which God has revealed to us is through prophets in the scriptures and in our day. I know what the church teaches about our relationship to God and each other is true. I feel the peace of God in doing good. It is a little difficult to describe how I know but think of a time you did something good for another, such as helping someone whose car had broken down or visiting a resident in a care home. The feeling you probably felt comes very close to how we feel inside about our faith. It makes us feel that way.
Well, Church is on Sundays, a family evening on Monday evenings, youth activities on Tuesdays, and some other meetings or activities from time to time. So being a member can be a little time consuming! It is also the only way I would experience my life. This is because trying to focus on what I see as the most important things in my life brings me greater fulfillment than simply idling away time. I have a responsibility in the church, that of Ward Mission Leader. This means I meet with full-time missionaries (you may have spoken or seen some) and local leaders regularly, and plan things for recently baptised members or those investigating the church. These things might be a ride to church or discussing how that individual or family might enjoy their church membership better.
