Chat With a Mormon Online
I've been swimming since the end of 5th grade and even though it's sometimes hard, I still think it's a blast. I've been playing the piano since 2nd grade but I really got into music the beginning of high school and I've found a deeper meaning to what I play, along with learning how to sing and getting more interested in the songs I listen to. I love going to school and learning new things, particularly foreign languages. Currently, I'm studying Spanish, German, and French; I'm not fluent in any of them but I hope to be one day.
I've been a Mormon my whole life, my parents were both Mormon and I've always lived in a home where the gospel is taught. That doesn't mean I haven't asked questions about my beliefs and received spiritual promptings and a testimony that it's true. Even though I may not always be perfect, I know that my Savior understands and that he'll help me do better. When difficult things come my way, I find they're easier to handle because I'm a member of this church, and I know the purpose of this life and the love that Jesus Christ has for me personally.
I live my faith by going to church each Sunday and trying to use what I learn to improve my self and how I interact with others. During the week, I find that praying meaningfully and studying the scriptures help me keep the peace and love I feel from church to last all week long. I avoid the things that can distract me from the spirit (swearing, bad movies or songs, immoral things on the internet, etc.) not because I think I'm better than everyone else or because I'm being forced to, but because they help me come to know my Heavenly Father more and allows me to feel His love.
