While our backgrounds and experiences are diverse, we share a deep commitment to Jesus Christ, to each other, and our neighbors. Watch these stories of faith in the everyday lives of Mormons. You can also meet Mormons here.
Our faith influences nearly every aspect of our lives. Beyond simply believing in Jesus Christ, we try to bring His teachings to life at home, at work and in our communities. Here are a few of the cultural priorities embraced by members of the Church around the world.
We are all spiritual children of a loving
Heavenly Father who sent us to this earth to learn and grow in a mortal state. As Mormons,
we are followers of Jesus Christ. We live our lives
to serve Him and teach of His eternal plan for each of us.
Isn't this awesome? One of the things I love the best about the Mormon church is that everyone takes a part in teaching and administering in the church. Every member has opportunity to serve, we serve two year missions when we are 18, teach lessons, and organize fun and spiritual activities. The more opportunities I take to teach and serve others the deeper my understanding of the gospel becomes. Serving together in the church makes everyone a participant in the work of the Lord and it brings the message of Christ to life as we take part in His work. I am grateful to be in a church where I am an active participant in teaching, learning and serving.

As a young girl I remember asking my Mom out of simple curiosity why Women didn't have the Priesthood. She told me an answer I have never forgotten. She immediately asked me why Men don't have babies?! As silly as it sounded, it made complete sense to me. My Mom then explained that we each have roles in life. She answered in a way that a young child would understand & yet as an adult now, remains a truth that I hold dear to my heart.
I have never, ever felt any "less" important to anyone, including my Father in Heaven because I don't hold this calling of the Priesthood. Having the Priesthood does not mean you are a "better" person than the next person, but it is simply a calling that one is willing to take on.
It is the power of God here on Earth & I am so glad that Heavenly Father is willing to entrust those who are worthy with it. It should be honored, respected and used when appropriate or it is simply taken away.
The Priesthood is something that I am very grateful to have in my life and in my home. I am blessed to have so many family members, neighbors, and friends that are willing in the blink of an eye to stop what they are doing and give a priesthood blessing to me, my children or anyone who desires one.
As Women, we have so much going on in our lives as we are continually serving. Helping others comes more naturally to us. I love how having a Priesthood calling pulls Men in the direction of service as it is required of them to serve as Christ would.
