Hi I'm Stephanie

I know the blessings that come from missionary work. I'm a convert. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

For the sake of being brief, I am difficult to put into words. Laughter is my best friend we do almost everything together. Sarcasm is my second language, sometimes to a fault. People rock my socks and then some. I could never be a hermit. I easily break more stuff than you. No, really. Your accidental destructive tendencies do not hold a candle to mine. I have a testimony of the LDS church. Short, but, hopefully, sweet.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the restored church of Heavenly Father. Joseph Smith was a prophet and an instrument of the Lord to restore that church. Those that follow the commandments of Heavenly Father will find peace and come to an understanding of His love for us that is unending. His willingness to accept and welcome us, regardless of our transgressions, is embraced by those within the church. Those who choose to serve missions will bless countless individuals and families with the message they spread. I know because they found me. For all of these things I am grateful, daily. I know that the church is true. That is "Why I am a Mormon."

How I live my faith

 Though the Book of Mormon is a tool for growth as a whole, one passage has particularly helped me on my spiritual journey "8 And he said unto me Because of thy faith in Christ, whom thou hast never before heard nor seen. And many years pass away before he shall manifest himself in the flesh wherefore, go to, thy faith hath made thee whole. 9 Now, it came to pass that when I had heard these words I began to feel a desire for the welfare of my brethren, the Nephites wherefore, I did pour out my whole soul unto God for them. 10 And while I was thus struggling in the spirit, behold, the voice of the Lord came into my mind again, saying I will visit thy brethren according to their diligence in keeping my commandments. I have given unto them this land, and it is a holy land and I curse it not save it be for the cause of iniquity wherefore, I will visit thy brethren according as I have said and their transgressions will I bring down with sorrow upon their own heads. 11 And after I, Enos, had heard these words, my faith began to be unshaken in the Lord and I prayed unto him with many long strugglings for my brethren, the Lamanites." - Enos 18-11 The above scripture illustrates the importance of maintaining one's "unshaken" faith, regardless of the circumstances. It also reminds me that Heavenly Father will be with me when I am struggling in the spirit and that He will bless me and those around me if we live according to His laws.
