Chat With a Mormon Online
I live in Devon and attend the Newton Abbot ward. I am married to Steve and we have been married for almost 6 lovely years. I have 6 children from my first marriage and now 7 beautiful grandchildren. I work full time and love living in Devon as we are near to the sea and the countryside. I am 57 years old or young however you like to look at life. My youngest son has returned home from serving a full time mission in Durban South Africa
I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father came to Joseph Smith and the gospel as taught by Jesus when he lived on the earth was restored in its fulness, the Priesthood was restored and the keys that are needed for me to be able to return home to my Father in Heaven when this life is done. The principles taught teach a way of life which encourages love especially within our home, teaching good qualities to our families and living with hope in our Saviour. Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God, Thomas S Monson is a living prophet today and receives revelation from our Saviour, we can receive instruction and revelation from our Father in Heaven and His Son Jesus Christ, the Spirit will guide us and never lead us astray, I know in my soul that the Church is the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Prayer is my direct line to him, through my prayers I receive help and comfort and at most important times in my life my Father in Heaven has never let me down, he forgives if you are truly repentant and to know of Him and His Son gives me hope in a world which is increasingly loosing its way.
I teach the 10-12 years old children in the Primary section at church, during church the children have their own time and are in classes to suit their ages starting from nursery at 18 months right upto 12 years of age when they go on into the youth group. In primary we sing songs and teach the words of Jesus as he taught them, with stories and songs and the children particpate by saying a prayer or giving a short talk, they love it and understand so much. My husband is a councellor in the mens group which takes care of the needs of the men in the ward, organises them when people need help and encourages them to do better and take care of their families. I have passed my driving test and am beginning to find joy in driving rather than apprehension. My husband has lost his sight due to Diabetes so being able to get out about is helped by passing my test first time, the Lord blesses us in many ways. I am active in the visiting teaching programme in the church where the women go to visit with other women at church in pairs and establish friendships, often with people that we wouldnt normally talk to I guess, we talk of everyday things and also leave a spiritual message to uplift one another and if there is any help needed we are able to provide that help and if not then we can ask others to help as this is what we are taught, help those in need and our own troubles are lessened.
