Hi I'm Bwekembe

About Me

I love reading. I started a book-club at church. I've always loved playing sports. I'm not very good but I like football, soccer and track. I'm a teacher, I've taught for seven years, kids are hilarious! I been married for seven years and we have three little boys ages 7, 5 and 2 years old.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have searched for the true church and found it. I wondered why are there so many different churches, which one should I join. I knew I wouldn't be able to visit them all, but I ended up calling the missionaries back and asking them to teaching us. Being a Mormon means being like Jesus. I have learned so much about Him through reading the bible and the book of Mormon. I have felt a beautiful spirit at church, at home and when I pray.

Personal Stories

How can we develop greater harmony in our homes?

We can develop great harmony in our homes by having fun with our families. We sometimes over schedule our lives and don't live in the moment. I love having whole some recreational activities with my family. We play board games, go to parks together and enjoy each others company.

How has attending Church services helped you?

Attending church services has helped me be a better person. On Sunday, I think about the day I was baptized and how clean and pure I felt. I know I have a new week, a clean slate and chance to not repeat the same mistakes. I make a new promise to myself to be a better daughter of God, a better wife, a better mother and a better friend. I feel re-charged, I feel like I can face any trial with the help of our Savior.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in everything I do. I wake up with a prayer, I try to be the best person I can be. I love serving as a Sunday school teacher and getting to know our youth. They know so much and help me learn. I treat people the way I want to be treated. Our Savior is our perfect example. If I have spent my day as he would then I have lived my faith.
