Chat With a Mormon Online
I am a wife and mother. I have been married for ten years to a wonderful man. We are blessed to have three children. I love learning and reading. I love running and being outside. I love the mountains and the beauty of nature. I like to decorate and create beautiful things to make the space around me more enjoyable.
I am a Mormon because it is the only way for me to be truly happy. God loves us and so He sent us the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. He gave us the plan of happiness, and as we follow His plan, that is what we will be. Happy, Joyful, exuberant, radiant, and on top of the world!
One time, my little 4 year old girl was very sick. She had been to the doctor and had her blood drawn. They told us she was dehydrated and if she got any worse to rush her to the emergency room. Well she was so lethargic and sleepy, I couldn't tell if she was worse or better. I have a friend who nearly lost her 4 year old girl because of dehydration, so I was really worried. I couldn't sleep, so I asked my husband what he thought and he said, "Just let her sleep." Even after he told me that, I still could not feel peace. So I did the only thing I could think of in that moment. I prayed. I said "Heavenly Father. I know that you know what I need to do. I am her mother and she is my child. I know that it is my right as a mother for you to tell me what to do. Please tell me what to do for my daughter." Almost instantly, I had the thought enter my mind as though from our Heavenly Father, "Let her sleep, my child." Like I was the child and He loves me just as much as I love my daughter. Peace swept over me as I laid down next to my little girl and slept. She never had to make that trip to the emergency room. I know that my prayer was answered instantly. I know that our Heavenly Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ, love me and my children--I know that all I need to do is to ask and He will answer.
I live my faith every day. At least I try. I am the secretary for the women's group in our ward a ward could be compared to a congregation. I find it very fulfilling to see the lives of the women around me touched by the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints believe that the family is ordained of God, and that for a woman, raising children is one of the most noble callings we can have and one of the most important works we will ever accomplish. So, I also live my faith by raising three, sweet little children--teaching them the eternal truths of the gospel and teaching them of their divine nature.
