About Me

Joined the church in 1993 so very grateful for the gospel and the joy an freedom it has brought to me in my life and the great help it has been to raise my children an my grandchildren so happy to have a testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ and his love for me

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to see a tv commercial about a family sitting and praying and studying the scriptures and I said I want that in my life and so I ordered the video and the Missionaries brought it to our home along with their sweet spirits and taught us, by having open hearts and a willing mind to know of the Savior we studies and learned the love he has for us and when I ask the missionare why I should believe what they teach their response was short and simple and very intelligent, they said don't believe what we say but pray and ask Heavenly Father what you should do he will testify to you through the Holy Ghost the truthfullness of all things, we were baptized two months later into the church and are so very grateful for all the blessings which come from the gospel and the love of our Savior Jesus Christ and the more we study the more he enlightens our minds to more I am blessed

How I live my faith

I am the compassionate service leader of my ward which means I am called to carIe for the sick and needy and I love the opportunity to serve my brothers and sister both of the church and not for when i am in the service of others I am in the service of my LORD I have since then been called to primary I teach 5 year olds I have learned so much by there sweet spirits we as adults can definitely be taught by the little ones god knows each of us personally and knows what we need and were we need to be placed to learn I'm thankful to be teachable I strive every day knowing the Lord will give me know more than I can handle although I think some days he thinks i'm stronger than I know I am but I also know he gives me nothing I can't get through with his help I live with the promise that he loves me and I am a child of his and he will help me through anything as long as I strive to live his commandments.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Roxanne
We believe that we have a heavenly father who loves us very much and he loved us so much that he sent his son Jesus Christ to die for our sins that we may repent of our sins and return to heavenly father, Jesus Christ is our heavenly brother and are earthly Savior he lived for us and died for us that because we cannot be perfect as human mortals but through him we can be forgiven our sins and be born again and saved through baptism and through attending church and partaking of the sacrament each Sunday we can be forgive our short comings and be washed clean from our sins . Jesus suffered our sins in the garden of gethsemane and then died on the cross for us that our sins may be forgiven he is now alive and lives in heaven with heavenly father and will be our mediator when the lord returns and we well be judged Jesus will stand beside of us and if we repented will wash away those sin in which we repented for so we will not have to answer for them. I am so blessed and grateful for the savior Jesus Christ and I know he sends the Holy Ghost to testify and comfort me he strengthens me and give me hope and faith to endure till the end which is a very small time in the Saviors time.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Roxanne
If we read the scriptures and become familiar with them our answers to our question or trials are within the scriptures the Lord will guide us by the spirit to locate these answers when we are humbly seeking and prayerfully searching the scriptures for these answers. Miracles happen when we do as the Lord commands, this includes reading our scriptures faithfully in good times and in our trials we shall seek knowledge beyond this world of understanding. We will learn line upon line and precept upon precept this is why we can read the scripture over and over and learn more and more we can only receive an understanding of the level we can take in but if we continue to read study and ponder and pray our minds will be enlightened to our understanding and that understanding will continue to grow and grow. The scripture are true as long as they are translated correctly, and this is the blessing of the Book of Mormon which is another testament of Jesus Christ for it was translated by Joseph Smith but not written by Joseph Smith The Book of Mormon had been preserved and saved for the time of Joseph Smith to translate by the Gift of Translation given from Heavenly Father himself that we may have the fullness of the Gospel brought forth in the Lords time and not mans The church is ran as when Jesus Christ walked with earth, we are blessed with a living prophet today and the 12 disciples are in place as the lord saw fit. We can be blessed if we read, search, and live these scriptures. Show more Show less
