Chat With a Mormon Online
I am from Utah and am a student studying Nursing. I love love love running, basketball, playing games, listening to music, playing the piano, being outside, painting my nails, spending time with my family, traveling, hiking, camping, and the Olympics!
I am a Mormon because I was born into the church, but through fervent prayer and living the principles of the church, I have gained my own testimony of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and their plan for us. I know that Jesus Christ came to Earth to give us a perfect example of how to live life and to take upon himself the sins and pains of every person that ever has or ever will come to this Earth. It is comforting to know that because He took upon him the sins and pains of the world--the sins and pains of me--that I will never be alone because He knows exactly how I feel. It is also comforting to know that He will always be there for me as long as I allow Him into my life. As a member of this church, I know that my life here on Earth is not the end of my existence. I know that through our Father in Heaven's plan, I can one day return to live with Him again and that I will be with my family again after this life. I can't even imagine where I would be without the church--it means everything to me--and I know that I am a better person because I am a member.
I try to live my faith by trying to be a better person each day than I was the day before. This desire is strengthened by regularly atttending my church meetings and through studying the principles taught in The Book of Mormon, Bible, and by Latter-day prophets. I also try to find opportunities to serve the people and the community around me.
