Hi I'm Heather Elizabeth

I'm a Convert

About Me

I became a convert in July in 2008, and it was the best thing to have happened in my life. I was introduced to the church by my amazing boyfriend and when investigating the church I felt a sence of belonging a sense of peace. Something I have never felt this way before, But i knew the church was true and i could not deny it. I was not perfect before i made choices i regreted and was not the best person. Now being a member my life has changed immensly and i could not wish for anything better. I love it so much!!!!! Now im planning for a church mission to be a missionary

Why I am a Mormon

My boyfriend is a member and when we went to our home town to meet his family I saw something I never thought I would see in my life. I have never seen a family love one another as they have. That is something that has been lacking in my life. I have always wanted a family that close, especially since my father, grandfather had passed away when i was young. The missionaries taught me about how families can be together for ever and that was they KEY for me to learn more and want to be come a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In the time of me being a member I have done baptisims for my father and grandfather and working on the whole family being able to live together for time and all eternity.

How I live my faith

In my ward I teach sunbeams(3 years). It is one of the best callings I have had. Something i realized was that since im a convert it is fun to go through the steps and start out teaching my sunbeams. I hae 9 kids in my class and there are 2 sunbeam classes. I also am a happy visting teacher to go and visit sisters in the ward and help fellowship, and share the gospel message and to see how they are doing. It has been amazing to build a strong relationships with my sisters in the ward. I am also working on my young womens and trying to recieve the young women medalian. Im so stoked to be able to complete this program and earn something so wonderful.

What is faith?

Heather Elizabeth
Wait is Faith. Faith is believing in something although you can not see it. Just like many of us do. We do believe in God although we can not see him. As we all have faith in many other things. We can develop faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and in our Father in heaven by offering a sincere prayer asking for understanding and knowledge of the truth of Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. We can Study the scriptures. Faith is something that is a blessing to have. because in the long run we will get to see Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Heather Elizabeth
Proxy: To use someone in replacement for another When I went to the Temple to do baptisms for my family I had my boyfriend be a proxy for my father since he was not able to be there to be baptized. I was doing the work on earth for my father since he is no longer on the earth, but my father makes the ultimate decision if he wants to become a member of the church. So we do this in our temple because it is the house of the Lord. One of the places we can feel closer to the Lord and the spirit, as well as preforming this is a very sacred ordinance.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Heather Elizabeth
The way to know if the LDS "Mormon " church to be true is through Prayer. Heavenly Father hears and listens to us and wants us to communicate with him. When we pray the Holy Ghost will give us the truth and bare witness of the truth and fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. PRAY and I challenge you to do so Show more Show less
