I enjoy art. I studied Interior design and did some work in that field. I like to knit and to draw. anything creative. I love to help people plan for weddings or baby showers, etc because I get to use my creative skills as a gift in the most inportant events of that persons life.
I have 101 reasons to be Mormon! I actually made a list of things that I knew made the church true when I was studying with the missionaries so I wouldn't forget.
There was a day I was going to do something in my will and something inside of me said " you dont have to do this" and I realized that was the Holy Ghost speaking to me. The holy Ghost is a wonderful gift. Like a guide at all times and it speaks in many different ways so it can always get your attention. God is very creative!
My favorite part of the book of Mormon is the Liahona.It's this compass that only works by faith and I wrote "LIAHONA" on a piece of paper and put it where I could see it everyday to remind me that God works by faith. my understanding of that is much deeper now that I've read the whole Book of Mormon and studied with the missionaries. Im so greatful. I am able to talk to God and love God in a way I never knew I would.
God has blessed us all with diffrent gifts and talents so that we may share this gifts with one another and by doing so we bless one anothers lives. The person we are helping is blessed with our talent and we are blessed that we are able to use the gift that we have been given. The more we use our talents the more they improve and The blessings can't be numbered! We never know just how God we bless us for helping others and using the gifts that he gave us.
My baptism was a wonderful experience! The most profound thing I learned was the symbolism. Going down into the water was a sign of Jesus being crusified and coming up from the water was a sign of his resurrection! I did not know that before the missionaries taught me that! It felt soooo good to know that my sins where washed clean and that as long as I follow the commandments and take sacrament every Sunday I can keep that wonderful feeling I had coming out of the water.
"For if there be no faith among the children of men God can do no miracle among them wherefore, he showed not himself until after their faith." -Ether 1212 My favorite scripture in the Book of Mormon!
