Chat With a Mormon Online
I am a college graduate with a degree in history. I use the things I learned in college such as how to stay focused and awake for long hours and nights at home where I work as a mother to my 3 boys, (none of them school age quite yet) I have dabbled in scrapbooking, sewing and other crafts none of which I am particularly good at but I enjoy finished products. I like reading and enjoy BBC shows especially ones based on books I love. Secretly, I am also a sci-fi geek. I enjoy a good sci-fi movie or show just as much as a new take on Pride and Prejudice.
I was not looking for the Gospel when it found me. I was 19 and had actually never really heard of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I met a young man in an AOL chatroom (this was in 1999) he was a recent return missionary. We fell in love over the internet before dating sites existed and I could not help but notice that he was different. He courted me and was a gentleman. What would give this young man such impeccable standards? It was that he had been raised in the Gospel. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed diligently as to its truthfulness and I attended church with him for months. One day I knew it was time to get serious. I invited the missionaries to come and teach me the principles. I remember thinking something that would make someone do so much good and strive continually to be worthy of our Heavenly Father could only be of Him. I joined and have been so grateful as I have watched those around me struggle with decisions that seem so clear to me, that I have the Gospel. I have the plan of Salvation. I know what my Heavenly Father wants of me. I know this Gospel is true and that my happiness and the joy in my life stems from my willingness to serve those around me and obey Heavenly Father's commandments.
I continually strive to be a friend to my neighbors and a helping hand to someone who needs me. I help plan activities for the women in my ward (church). We plan activities that give opportunites to serve in our community, and grow our freindships between one another and those that touch our lives.
