Chat With a Mormon Online
I am 23 years old and I thoroughly enjoy performing in music, theater, and dance and love to curl up with a good book, write short stories, songs, and poems in my spare time. I also enjoy physical fitness and have lots of fun weightlifting, biking, running, and wrestling. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. Living what I believe is part of who I am. Last of all I love to make people smile and laugh and most of all, I love to make friends.
I am a Mormon because I found out for myself that it was true. It wasn't enough to be born into a Mormon family, I wanted to know for myself. One day when I was feeling low and everything seemed so complicated and stressful I prayed to my Heavenly Father to help me in the dark hour. The answer I received can be read in Mosiah 4:6-8. It made salvation seem so much more simple. It eased my worry and reminded afresh of how well my Heavenly Father knows me and cares for me. I love the scriptures, and I can't get enough of it! Everytime I hear a scripture reference I'm not familiar with I look it up as soon as I can and peruse it and memorize it so I can use it later. What a blessing it is to have the words of our Eternal Father at our fingertips! I'm so glad the Lord inspired prophets to pen the answers to every question we have today! I know the answers to any and all soul searching questions can be found in the Book of Mormon. This is because Mormon, who compiled and abridged to make what we have today as the Book of Mormon had a very special experience. (See Mormon 8) The Lord blessed him to see our day so he could know exactly what it was we needed in theses trying times. I love the Book of Mormon!
The joy I have day to day that keeps me going comes entirely from this knowledge "I know in whom I have trusted" 2 Nephi 4 verse 19 I know more than anything else that Jesus Christ is my Saviour and Redeemer. His grace is amazing! Turning to and trusting in my Savior has made me who I am today. I love my elder brother Jesus Christ. His influence and tender mercies have blessed my life in more ways then I can say. I love Him, and I know that my Savior loves me!
I love the happiness and peace the truth has brought me. I want everyone I meet to have a chance to feel the joy and peace that I feel. Whenever someone makes a statement that they feel really strongly about I know that what I say in response is something they'll remember. So whenever some emphatic statement or question arises I wait for the words I need. I know that if I read my scriptures and pray daily that I will always be prepared to recieve the revelation needed to inspire and lift my fellow men. I have a deep love for the scriptures. They are a written account of God's thoughts, ideas, and feelings. They were and are written down by the prophets who speak on and share what He has to say to the whole world. Also, whenever someone speaks by the power of the Holy Ghost, thereby saying what the Lord would have them say, that is also scripture. The scriptures and the gospel contained therein are priceless and contain the power to change lives. If we but open them and search, ponder, and pray we will receive revelation from our Heavenly Father to guide us in our lives.
I am a social butterfly. I love meeting people and even more than that, I love establishing lasting friendships. I know that we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father who cares deeply for each and every one of us. I know He values who I am as an individual and wants me to be true to what He made me to be. I also love to sing and smile nearly everywhere I go because I know “that by and simple things are great things brought to pass” Alma 37 verse 6
