Hi I'm Connie B
I'm a wife and mother who loves all music especially playing the piano, photography, shopping, eating, traveling, and spending time with my family.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born and raised in the church but that's not the only reason I am Mormon. I absolutely love the gospel of Jesus Christ, it brings me so much hope and comfort. The teachings of this church just make so much sense- that you need to work hard to be the best person you can be to those around you and STILL be a good person even when NO ONE is around you. The teachings of the Mormon church are the same teachings Jesus Christ taught when he was on earth... so of course I want to follow Him!
In what ways have your prayers been answered?
I am so grateful for prayer. I use it daily and daily it helps me. My prayers are answered in big trials in that prayer brought me comfort, patience, and the strength to overcome those obstacles. But prayer is essential for everyday, even the small things in life. I believe the Lord genuinely wants to hear from his children. Now, I've come to a point in my life that even if I lose my keys the FIRST thing I do is pray. I can then search with assurance that I've showed Heavenly Father I have faith in Him and are willing to ask for His help. It's like the painting where Christ is knocking at the door without a handle... it's our job to let Him in, and prayer is one of the best ways.
How I live my faith
Being LDS is so spiritually fulfilling! I have the opportunity to be of service to those around me, as well as help out in my ward. I do that by visiting ladies in my ward each month to support and make sure they are doing okay, and also by teaching my 13 year old sunday school class the gospel lessons. I live my faith by staying active physically and spiritually, living my life to the fullest- not idling my time away, being a great mom and wife, loving all people, and obeying the commandments. There is so much to it but it all comes down to doing my best at following the example Jesus Christ set.
