Hi I'm Selena

I love children, music, and wholesome fun. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the lucky mom of 4 (mostly grown) children who keep me busy and entertained. I hope to be able to go back and finish college some day. I love literature and great music. My goal is to manage my money well enough that I can perform random acts of kindness to bless the lives of others who are in need.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in an LDS (Mormon) family, but I had to gain a testimony of the truth for myself. My parents and church leaders provided a strong foundation and the Lord has helped me to build on it. I read the Book of Mormon and responded to Moroni's challenge in chapter 10 to pray about what I had read and felt in order to know for myself that it was true. I've had many experiences with the Spirit that are too sacred to share here. I have felt the witness of the Spirit that this is the Lord's church. I can't imagine living without the knowledge of how greatly our Father loves us.

How I live my faith

I attend church and church activities regularly to learn, to feed my spirit and to support other members. I've served in the church in many volunteer capacities from children's classes to our youth organization to teaching Sunday School for adults. My current calling allows me to organize temporal help and support for families who experience hardship due to a death in the family, birth of a baby, surgery, etc. I try each day to live my life in a way that will bring honor to my family and to the church. I seek to be honest with my fellow man and to love and serve others.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Selena
Great question! The world is so busy these days that it is hard to find places to meet new people. It may seem that Mormons just hang out with each other. I know I need to branch out a little more! However, we believe that all people are God's children and we extend our love, charity and service to all. The church and church members provide extensive humanitarian relief in disasters around the world and are often among the first responders. Members contribute their time, talents, money and other resources wherever needed. The women of the church belong to a church organization called Relief Society. It was started in the 1800s to provide support and relief to those in need. The women regularly create things like school kits, quilts, leprosy relief kits, toiletries for battered women shelters, etc. to be donated at our own expense to those in need. Serving others brings great joy and is one of the great examples from the life of Christ. It's a blessing that we do not reserve just for our members. Show more Show less
