Hi I'm Rhonda

I was born in Illinois and raised in Florida. I Love Music! I have an AA a degree in business. And, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a happily married stay at home mother of 7. I love to home school. My hobbies are reading, painting and sewing. I am serious about music and I am opening a music studio in the near future. I love to create music with my family. I have traveled all over the United States and one of my favorite places is Taos, New Mexico, I also love the Gulf of Mexico and Northern California.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the simple truths I have learned in this Church. They gave me hope for my father's immortal soul, who is dead. I had been told by another religion since childhood that since he had never been baptized that he would go to hell. I pondered on how a loving God could send someone to hell who never even knew the real truth. The restored gospel reveals the truth about the dead. In 1st Corinthians 15:29 It states,"Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? Why are they then baptized for the dead? And it is confirmed in the Doctrines and Covenants 138:33... "These were taught, faith in God, repentance from sin, vicarious baptism for the remission of sins, the Gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands". It is written about in many other places in the Holy scriptures. The Book of Mormon is the word of God, and together with the Holy Bible and New Testament, which is also the word of God, they restore the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When I first heard the missionaries teach me the principles of the Gospel, I felt the Holy Spirit witness to me that they are true. I have always loved Our Savior Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon testifies of Christ. It confirms the teachings of Christ we first learned in the Holy Bible and New Testament. I believe in God the Eternal Father and in his son Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost. I say this in the Holy name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I am an active member of my church. I as YW personal progress advisor in my ward. I pray each day; in the mornings and evenings and sometimes in between. I read the scriptures frequently. I teach my children correct principles and I strive to make my home centered in Christ. I read scriptures to my children and put posters with the scriptures on the walls. We have a family home evening during which we study the teachings of Christ. I visit and share the gospel with many others. I live righteously so I can be a living witness that Our Savior Jesus Christ lives and that we have a loving Heavenly Father who wants us all to return to him after this life. I am thankful for every day I live, and all that Heavenly Father gives me. I share with my fellow mankind and I strive to love everyone as the Savior of mankind does, that is ...Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Rhonda
I believe that Christ did appear to those in the North America. I believe the Book of Mormon which says in Ether 12:7..... "For it was by faith that Christ showed himself unto our fathers, after he had risen from the dead; and he showed not himself unto them until after they had faith in him; wherefore, it must needs be that some had faith in him, for he showed himself not unto the world". I testify In the Holy name of Jesus Christ, Amen. Show more Show less
