Hi I'm Jin
I am from Seoul, South Korea. I'm an outgoing person who has positive attitude on pretty much everything. I LOVE to talk to people as much as I love to listen to them about their stories with different backgrounds, different thoughts, or different experiences... I love playing the piano, singing, drawing, and taking pictures. Music always has been a great passion and blessing in my life and I try to learn more about Art. I got set up on a blind date with the most incredible man when I came to the United States, and we got married and have the most wonderful and happy life with 3 children. We've moved 10 times last 7 years, and I know we would have more moving times in the future. I used to feel stressed and nervous about new environment, new people, neighbors, friends, but I decided the only thing I can change is my attitude.(and that applies to everything!) I can be the good neighbor, I can be the good friends, I can be the good person to others whenever we move, and wherever we go. ^_^ I KNOW everything happens for a reason, and my life has been proving that to me. My life has been so blessed(even when there were bad times, hard trials, and sad/miserable moments), and I pray, I go to the LDS Temples, to stay positive and do some good deeds as much as I can to recognize the fullness of the Gospel and to be grateful for the blessings I have and enjoy. I'm so thankful that I found the Truth that I can have the eternal family and happiness in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Why I am a Mormon
I found an English class taught by LDS missionaries in Korea, and started going there. Several missionaries wanted to have Gospel discussions with me, and I turned them down every time. I heard rumors from other people - I didn't want to have anything to do with the "Mormon church". I didn't want to be somebody's 4th wife, yes, I think that was my biggest concerns. Several years past, and I had seen ENOUGH mormon people myself. No one had more than 1 wife, and EVERYONE seemed to genuinely care. They were always grateful, happy, and very positive. so I became interested in this "Mormon church" that I had sworn to never join, and had discussions with missionaries and DECIDED to get baptized. I invited my mom who is Buddhist to my baptism. She was furious, telling me to do whatever I wanted to do. (you know- it means totally OPPOSITE!) She refused to come to my baptism because she had to meet a client at her shop. I told my cousin that I found this church that I felt was actually really GOOD unlike the rumors. She asked me what church it was and when I told her what it was, she screamed in excitement and told me she and her family were LDS!!! I never knew.....(They are incredible people.) My cousin's family came for my baptism and I saw.......my MOM coming in the baptismal room. She told me her client couldn't make it so she JUST decided to come. I was glad and happy. When my Bishop came into the room, she yelled at him- in a greeting way. Because my Bishop happened to be my mom's doctor. She told me that night, "Knowing Mr. xx, if he is your Bishop, you may go to that Mormon church. It would be an OK church to go to." Since I join the LDS church, my everything has been completely changed, especially my attitude towards the meaning of life, happiness, and joy. I found the perfect cornerstone for my life in Jesus Christ. I have a loving husband, and wonderful 3 kids, and the life with them for Eternity is Priceless. I never knew I could be this happy. ^_^
How I live my faith
I am so grateful and thankful the way I live. I know the families can be forever throughout all Eternity, How comforting that is! I love reading scriptures, praying with my family before we go to bed. I love to hear my children singing "I am a child of God". I love singing with playing the piano, I play the piano for the young children at the LDS church. I try to serve others, and as much as I get help from others I want to(try to) give it to others. Even though there are some people don't know the Gospel of Jesus, I believe that God knows who GOOD people are and they will be rewarded. (according to Heavenly Father's plan, which he prepared for us!) I want to be good, believing, helpful, generous and thoughtful. I want to be more like Jesus, and ultimately like God, our Heavenly Father. I found THE ULTIMATE FOCUS/ THE PURPOSE of my life . We are the children of God, and He created US. As His children, we need to live to our potential. He is with us, He knows each one of us, and He answers our prayers. I've gotten answers so many times. I know it with all my heart. I'd like to share my testimony and my story, a story of how I found the joy in my life.
