Hi I'm Mindy

About Me

Hi, I am a wife of 11 years and a Mother to 4...two girls and two boys. I grew up a mormon. All my life I have been blessed with the gospel. I served as a full-time missionary in Uruguay and gained so many wonderful experiences there. I really hope to return someday. My husband and I were married in the Salt Lake Temple for all eternity. I am grateful that through a temple marriage my family is an eternal family. Even after we die we will still be together.

Why I am a Mormon

I know the church is true. As I look at the struggles of the world today I am so happy the church has given me wonderful guidelines to follow. With these guidelines I know I have avoided so many terrible consequences that come from making choices that the world says is normal. I have felt such an amazing spirit when I talk about the prophet Joseph Smith. I look forward to feeling this same spirit (the Holy Ghost) every day in my life. I am grateful that I can turn to Heavenly Father in prayer when I need help in raising my family. I love to see that sparkle in the eyes of my kids when I know they too have felt this same spirit of confirmation. The Holy Ghost confirms the truth. I know Jesus lives and that this is his true church on earth today.

How I live my faith

I rely on prayer. Life isn't easy and probably never will be but life is what we make it. I enjoy attending church every Sunday to feel the spirit, learn about the gospel of Jesus and feel the support of my neighbors and friends. I love the friends I have made through attending church. They comfort and care for each other without any question. I have had so many opportunities to serve. We are Gods helpers here on earth.

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ. It talks about the teachings of Jesus to the people in the Americas where the Bible, also a wonderful testament of Jesus Christ, is set in Jerusalem and the surrounding area. The Book of Mormon tells us about the visit of Christ to the people in the Americas after he had died and was resurrected. Each person there was able to see him and touch his wounds. Even before Joseph Smith was born he was prepared by God to obtain the golden plates and translate them into english. These gold plates are the Book of Mormon. Joseph Smith was shown where to find these plates by an angel, Angel Moroni. I know the Book of Mormon is and its teachings are true. When I read the stories of the people who use to live on this continent The spirit confirms its truth. I am grateful to have this testament of Jesus Christ along with the Bible and to know that the truths haven't been altered or written by modern man but by ancient prophets of God. These words were written for us in this day. Show more Show less
