Chat With a Mormon Online
Hi! I am currently taking a break in school, but am a dance education major! My hope is to teach dance in a high school and maybe much later open a dance studio. I hope to bring clean dance back into schools that will uplift the lives of those affected by dance. I love to do active things like sports, hiking, horse back riding, biking and dancing as well as anything to do with performing. I come from a family of 4 children, a mother and a father. I am the youngest. I enjoy doing all I can to lift others whether through dance or other such things, helping them through rough trials or simply sharing my testimony.
I am a Mormon because of the joy, love, comfort, strength and happiness it brings to me. Without my religion and the Lord in my life I wouldn't have made it through some of the trials our Heavenly Father has blessed me with. I truly believe that everything we go through on earth is all for our benefit and learning. Through God's pure love we can learn all things he would have us know about ourselves and our purpose. I have seen the blessings of God go out to so many people in this church and continue to notice more everyday. He has given us so much love and care and I intend to do all I can to repay him.
To bring everyone we can to the full knowledge of the gospel. We feel so blessed to have the knowledge and want others to receive the blessings that come from being a member of the LDS church. Serving missions helps us to gain a deeper testimony and give happiness to others. We speak with people around the world of the things our church believes in, how the church can bless theirs and others lives and the commandments God has revealed to his children in this day that will lead us home to him. God is waiting with open arms to accept all who come to him. He loves all people and wishes us to return to him after this life is finished. He cannot force us to come unto him because that would rob us of our gift of agency. It is only through missionary work and the workings of the Holy Ghost that someone can come to know of the love and truth of Christ and the LDS church and we strive to bring that completeness and joy to all those we can.
The Plan of Happiness benefits everybody's lives. The Plan of Happiness is the perfect name for God's plan. Through life we have trials we must overcome. There is sadness and disappointment, but Heavenly Father has our happiness in mind. Through his plan I know that when our time on earth is over and we have done our best to follow Heavenly Father and complete the tasks that we were put on this earth accomplish and learn the things we needed to learn before returning to Him, we will be filled with a happiness we have not known in our mortal life. We will be filled with an everlasting pure happiness. This gives me hope and courage when I think of the people who have gone before me that were so important in my life. There are people in my life who seemed to have passed on at such a young age and at such a good time in their lives, but through my knowledge of the Plan of Happiness I know that Heavenly Father knows best and that in the end even though we've suffered pain we will be happy if we do our best to follow his commandments and keep the covenants we have made with him.
I faithfully attend church every week and often have the opportunity to teach Sunday School which is based around the Book of Mormon this year. I love this calling. By actively reading the Book of Mormon and preparing lessons to teach others of the Book of Mormon my testimony grows and I learn so much more. It's very effective to read the scriptures this way; reading with the intent of teaching someone of it in the future. I live in a family who are all members of the church and I learned through my parents the importance of keeping covenants, following commandments given to us by our Heavenly Father and praying to Him. I live in a way that people can see that I have high standards. I live in a way that will continually make me a better person. I am preparing myself for a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
