Chat With a Mormon Online
I am originally from Connecticut. Born in New York. I am married to the greatest human being I know and I have three amazing children
My sister is Mormon and I was invited to join her for a Church meeting. I remember a man talking from the pulpit, and he was encouraging the other men to "love their wife as Jesus loves the church". He began to talk about eternal families and how eveything that the church teaches us is to protect and nuture those relationships. I chose to follow this faith because if the man that I chose to marry some day was being taught those concepts, I would be grateful and happy. I am happy.
It was simple really. I had my sister there and I was at peace. I didn't know the answers to everything but I had the answers to the important things and I had faith in God. I had faith that everything else would be revealed in time.
Prayer helps me remember what is most important in life. When I kneel to pray at night I have a list of simple items in my mind (things I want to pray about). I do however, start with the most important things, like thanking God for my family's health, protection from harm and thank him for having them all safe in their beds. By the time I move on the the other items on my list, I remember the things that I had just prayed about are the most important and I don't need anything else.
I live my faith by serving others and being an example to my children.
