Hi I'm Stefanie
I am a wife to an amazing and loving husband and father and a mother of 4 beautiful blessings! They are all my world :-)!
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon by choice and also because I know this to be the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon Church) is true and it is set up just the way it was when our Savior lived upon the Earth. That to me is another testament of the truthfulness of this Gospel. It is simple, it is beautiful, it is true!
Please explain the part prayer plays in your life?
To be able to communicate (pray) with our Father in Heaven is such a blessing! I pray to him at least 2 times a day with my family but as far as personal prayer, I have a constant communication with Him. I KNOW that He hears and answers my prayers and even my very thoughts! On many occasions, I have thought of some things that I need to "take to my Father" in prayer and then my prayer to be is/has been answered. He is aware of each one of us and He knows what we need and want before we even ask for it but we need to be the one to open the door to Him and let Him in and allow Him to give us the blessings that He wants to give us. Prayer is also a way that I can ask Him to "bear my burden" and help me with any struggles in my life. I am so thankful for the opportunity to communicate with my Father in Heaven and know that He is aware of me, He loves me, He blesses me and wants what is best for me. Just like He does for you!
How has The Book of Mormon helped you understand the purpose of life?
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ! Just as the Bible is a record or ancient Jerusalem, The Book of Mormon is a record of Ancient America. Ancient Prophets testify of the birth, life and ministry of Jesus Christ. The records and teachings found in these scriptures apply to us today just as in days of old. The Book of Mormon tells us all the things that we should be doing and the way we should live our life so that we can be saved and return and live with our Father In Heaven after we leave our Earthly life. I am so thankful for The Book of Mormon, I know that it is true and reading it gives me an unexplainable comfort and peace. I know this book is God's word, just as the Bible is.
How I live my faith
I live my faith to the best of my ability in all that I do at home, with friends and at church. As a parent, I know that it is up to us to raise our children in righteousness. Teaching them how to be righteous will be something that we will have to answer to our Heavenly Father for. In addition to teaching our children, I have had the blessing and opportunity to have several callings within the Church and know that no matter how big or how small the calling, they are all equally important to our Lord! My current calling is with our amazing Youth as the Young Women's Secretary. I know that by serving others whether in a calling setting or not, we are serving the Lord!
