I love Jesus
Born into the faith. My middle name is Nephi.
With fun and love.
Faith in Jesus Christ doesn't just happen. You have to work for it. I discovered my faith increasing when I decided to study the scriptures for a minimum of 30 minutes a day. Doing so has allowed me to understand the doctrines of the gospel on a deeper level. Scripture study coupled with daily personal prayer where I really try to converse with my Father in heaven, and seek to know His will concerning me, rather than give him a list of my wants and needs and ask him to grant them as if he was my personal butler. The best way I have found is to seek to do as Jesus did. Be friendly with everyone I meet. Go the extra mile and help people beyond what is expected. Avoid judging people and try to find the good in people, rather than dwell on their weaknesses. I've found that seeking to do God's will and striving to live like Jesus Christ taught us to live, has not deprived me of anything, rather by doing things Heavenly Father's way has freed me and brought me more happiness than trying to do it my own way.

We are normal people just like everyone else! We are nurses, hair dressers, business men, and parents. We believe in Christ and we believe in God. We read the Bible as well as the Book of Mormon because they fit hand in hand with one another! As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (that is our real name), I can say that we are just regular people finding our way in this life just like you... we have just chosen to follow the Savior and his will in that we follow the commandments and other various things that you've probably heard, like not drinking, being monogamous and so forth. But why? Well, because we truly feel happy when we do these things and do what our Heavenly Father, God, wants us to. In society, being "Mormon" may seem obscure because our standards do not line up with the standards and choices that most people choose to make, but that's just because we've decided that in order to be happy, we must follow the Lord's path. And His path is straight and narrow, and so it requires a lot of effort, but I promise you that it provides so much happiness. I have witnessed this happiness in my own life and I know that this religion's guidelines and teachings can bring this happiness to all who seek it. So that's what we are, normal people just striving to be Christ-like and serve others, filling our lives with happiness. Show more Show less
