Hi I'm Paige
I am a full time student studying Family and Human Development. I love learning about people and relationships. It's so fun to learn why people are they way they are and how to fix any problems. I have a wonderful family, but my parents just got divorced. With the Gospel in my life, I have been able to deal with those issues and stay positive and comforted.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I was born into it. But I have always loved learning more and more about this Gospel and everything it has to offer. I love the feelings I get when I read scripture, or hear latter-day prophets speak, or praying to my Heavenly Father. I love Jesus Christ and the Atonement he made for me and you and everyone. I would not be where I am today without the Gospel or Christ. My love for Him and my Father grows every single day, as I follow their commandments. Going through my parents divorce was rough. But I am so grateful that I have the Atonement in my life. I was able to feel comforted and know that I was not alone. Christ felt exactly what I felt, and still do feel. He is there for me and knows my pains. I can always turn to Him whenever I am not feeling too happy, and I will feel His peace.
Why do Mormons go on missions?
Mormons go on missions to share the great Gospel that we have and know to be true. Missions are great experiences for young men, women, and couples to dedicate their life (at least a couple years) to serving the Lord and bringing those who have not yet heard the truth, into Christ's church.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by going to church every Sunday, partaking of the Sacrament, and participating in the various church activities. Visiting teaching is so great. I always thought it might be kind of awkward and weird, but I truly do love it now. As you serve your sister(s), you grow a love for them that you never thought could happen. You can also grow a love for your visiting teaching companion. It's important to keep up these relationships and nourish them. Also, home teaching is a great asset. I do not have a Priesthood holder living with me to give me blessings, which are needed. So thankfully I had great home teachers that could act on their Priesthood authority for the blessings I needed.
