Hi I'm Laurie Denise

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of five children. I currently have 7 grandchildren. I love to play tennis. I love the beach and summer time. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ...

Why I am a Mormon

My husband and I had just had our first baby and we wanted to make sure that she was taught correctly about God and Jesus. We were not members of this church, but were members of another faith. We were searching for answers that we could not find in our church at that time. My husband was a professional boy scout while finishing his studies in law school. He worked with many different churches in the scouting program. He was always so impressed with the Mormon Church scout units that he worked with. We decided to look into other churches to find answers to so many questions we had. We decided to call our local Mormon church and visit them one Sunday. We attended their Sunday programs and knew we had found the church with all of the answers we had been searching for. We were baptized 3 weeks later and have been so happy with the wonderful changes it has brought into our lives. We have 5 children that we have raised in this church, and have been so thankful for the knowledge and insight that it has given us over the many years since we have been members.

How I live my faith

I try to follow the teachings of the Savior, Jesus Christ each day. Being a member of this church is an everyday way of life. It creates within you a desire to follow all of the teachings of the Savior by being obedient to his commandments.

Are Mormons Christians?

Laurie Denise
Mormons are Christians. We believe literally that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. We believe that God, the Father, sent his only Begotten Son Jesus Christ to this earth. We believe that in the Garden of Gethsemane, He took upon him the sins of all mankind, that He bled from every pore as He paid the ultimate price for our sins. We believe that He was nailed to the cross, that He was mocked, that He suffered unimaginable pain as He suffered for our sins. We reverence Him, we honor Him, we worship Him, and He is our example.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Laurie Denise
We do believe that the Bible is Holy Scripture and is the word of God. We use the King James version of the Bible. It is a companion to the Book of Mormon, which is another Testament of our Savior Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
