Why I am a Mormon
How I live my faith
I live my faith by truly caring about people as Christ would. I try to be a loving wife to my husband and to be there for my children at all times. I am true friend – one that listens and not judge, one that builds and not tear down, and one that smiles and rarely frowns. I serve in the church by teaching, visiting people’s homes, and providing temporal and spirtitual needs. I serve the students with disabilities in my school by building their self-esteem and to inspire them to be the best they can be. I never give up until they learn the skills that they need to be successful in life. Most of all, I delight in making people happy by performing simple random acts of kindness wherever I may be.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?
This is one of the greatest gift I have received as a member of the church. Having the companionship of the Holy Ghost has guided me in all aspects of my life. The Holy Ghost inspires me to be kind to others, warns me of dangers and directs me in the path of righteousness. The Holy Ghost reminds me to pray and to bring important things to mind.
- Can you think of a specific challenge in your family that Gospel Principles helped overcome?
One gospel principle that is a lifeline for me is prayer. I love to pray to our Heavenly Father. It’s my opportunity to thank Him and to acknowledge His hand in my life. I also come to him in prayer to help me with the challenges that I face in life each day. Prayer has helped me deal with my 3rd son’s disability. He has autism and at times it is very difficult to deal with his behavior and limited communication skills. I come to my Heavenly Father when all seems unbearable and He has always comforted and helped me get back on my feet again.
- What is being a Mormon like?
It’s about being happy and living life to the fullest. You are happy in the knowledge that you are a child of God and that you are a person of great worth. Your knowledge of the Savior helps you be the best you can be in all your endeavors. There is nothing mysterious or unusual about being a mormon. You do the same things that most people do such as go to school, work, shop, travel and live life. You sing, dance, listen to music, participate in sports and recreation, enjoy the wonders of technology, and be an active participant in the community. However, your knowledge of the gospel helps you as you navigate life’s ups and downs. You have the assurance that if you do what is right, you will be happy on this earth and in the eternities.
