Chat With a Mormon Online
I am currently serving a full time spanish-speaking mission in Tampa, Florida! I will be home January, 2014. I love my family. I started playing piano at age 8, picked up the flute and played that up until high school. I got bass guitar lessons at age 13, and have been playing since. Music is a passion of mine, whether its listening to, playing, performing, or recording. I love learning and seeking out education. I hope to be a student the rest of my life--whether a university, my family, my children, or God as my professor.
I'm not just a Mormon, I am a daughter of a living Heavenly Father who wants me to come back into his presence. I am eternally grateful to have a Savior, Jesus Christ, who suffered for me. I seek truth wherever it may be found. Our potential is magnificent. Incomprehensible. God is our father. Which means, we can be like him. But it's up to us. This life and religion is all about agency. God gave us the gift of choice, and it is up to me whether I can become like Him. It is up to me to live a good, healthy, clean life. It is up to me to seek out education. To have and raise a good family. To be charitable and loving to all people. I fall short, and I make mistakes now and then but because of Christ's sacrifice, I can repent, and change. Being a Mormon has taught me existential truth in this life, and it gives me more than a sense of purpose--it gives me pure joy.
By applying Christ-like teachings, there is harmony in my home. When I am patient, charitable, and I serve my family, we are all happy. It is important for me to put family first, to always love them, and have good relationships with them.
It's got truthful and inspiring doctrine. It has interesting stories, and beautiful teachings from people who lived at one time, in the Americas. But most of all, it helps me understand the Atonement better.
I think it's important to attend the temple often. It is a love of mine, and I know by staying worthy, I can remain close to my Heavenly Father. I am grateful for my health, and I am careful what I eat, drink, and I am opposed to alcohol and recreational drugs. Church is far more than just a weekly gathering. It is a lifestyle-- whether I'm praying, reading scriptures, or finding ways to serve others and grow closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ.
