Chat With a Mormon Online
I am a recent graduate of an Arizona high school. I'm a nanny. I am a future student of BYU-Idaho. I plan on majoring in Health Science and doing International Health, My favorite hobbie is singing. I'm currently in my church's ward choir and I love it! I consider myself to be an open-minded person. I love learning about different cultures, religions, and myths. I am an independent person with few close friends. I love long walks on the beach....just kidding. I want to move out of Arizona because I think the desert landscape is kinda ugly. And it is too hot here. Well that's me in a nutshell!
I was born into the church. At first I just went with the flow of things. I did what every other mormon kid did. I didn't quite have my own opinions on the church until I opened my mind and thought for myself. Once I hit the stage of maturity in my life, I opened my eyes and realized what the church does for me. I always took being a member for granted and always wished I was a convert, because they seem to have a better, more stronger testimony. I realized it is something you have to work at. I can't just sit there and let it hit me. I have to be active and catch the knowledge when it comes at me. I decided that I need to better myself now and stop feeling apathy for the church. I started reading my scriptures again and praying. I got my patriarchal blessing and strived to have those blessings in my life. I finished my personal progress for Young Women so that I can build my testimony. I plan on going on a mission. And I do not care where the Lord sends me. I believe in the Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that he is my older brother and he loves me. I know that he was sent here to earth to take my burdens and put them on his shoulders. I believe he will come again. I believe in the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. I am glad to have the priesthood in my life. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God, and that God still speaks to his children today. I know that I am a daughter of God.
If you have the talent of being a good listener, like what I believe I have, you can bless others in times of need. Our earthly life gives us sorrow and happiness, and it is always nice to have someone who will listen to your stories.
I consider myself an active member of the church. I go to church every Sunday, and go early to get the soft seats! I try to actively listen in Sunday school and learn all that God wants me to learn. I am the Laurel (group of young women from ages 16-18) president in my ward and I try to be a good example to the young women. I attend church choir every Sunday before church and sing praises unto God. I try to do what is right everyday and surround myself with good people. I admit I'm not perfect, but I'm trying.
