We belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints otherwise known as “The Mormons”. We are proud of this part of who we are! I’m excited to team up with over 65+ of us strong… to extend an invitation to see a film. A film entitled “Meet The Mormons”. This film is not meant to be an “in your face” – you must join our church film. It is simply designed and produced to uplift and inspire you through six stories of those of our faith who have followed promptings to follow Christ more fully in their lives. We hope you take the opportunity to enjoy this film. We hope your hearts are made light as you feel the goodness that comes from following our Christ and Savior. All proceeds from the film will be donated to The American Red Cross. So not only will you be uplifted and inspired, your money will be going to an amazing charity!!
We also would like to take a moment and share our personal testimonies, stories of our own personal conversions, and our own stories of how following our Savior, Jesus Christ has changed our lives. The light of the gospel of Jesus Christ offers a joy and hope that only following him can provide. We hope as you click through and read our stories and testimonies of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, you will feel uplifted and encouraged. We are by you! We love connecting with our readers, that is why many of us do what we do! Please be kind and considerate in your comments. It takes great bravery for us to open our hearts and our mouths to share with you such a tender and personal part of who we are. We share because we feel strongly the need to share the peace and the hope that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
My story is short and sweet, but covers my whole lifetime. My faith in Christ has influenced choices I made growing up, made me want to stay honest in school, helped me stay out of trouble by choosing good friends, helped me decided to serve as a missionary when I was 21 where I went to Portugal and Cape Verde and got to talk to people in their homes and teach them from the scriptures, decide who to marry, feel when the right time was to start thinking about kids (and I was pregnant the very next month), feel comforted when my husband’s work forced us to move unexpectedly, know that my family can be together now and after we’re gone from this life–so it’s very important that I strengthen those relationships, and most importantly, I know I am a child of God. I am loved exactly the way I am, but there are always ways I can improve and be a better person, and I have His help to do that.
I am a happier person because of what I know, and I can only hope to maybe make the lives of those around me a little better too.
I hope you’ll click through to several more posts, and of course ask questions if you have them. Thanks for reading!
For fun we thought we’d also open up a link party if anyone wants to add their own Mormon.org profile.
