Hi I'm Tina

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 4. I have a college education and used to own my own Marketing Agency, but I have chosen to stay home with my children for the last 10 years. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my entire life, but my husband is a recent convert to the church. Our family enjoys spending time outdoors, skiing, biking and boating. We also like to do community service with our children to teach them to help others, work hard and appreciate their many blessings.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in God the Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ. I believe in following their teachings and commandments. This Church teaches you to be a true disciple of Christ. I believe the Bible is true scripture, recorded by Prophets anciently in the Holy Land. I also believe the Book of Mormon is scripture recorded by Prophets anciently on the American continent. These two volumes of scripture are complementary and teach you how to follow Christ. I believe that families can be together forever, not just in this mortal life. The Mormon faith emphasizes the importance of families and teaches us how to love and serve one another. God's plan for His children is beautiful and eternal and I love to learn more each week in Church and as I read the scriptures. There is a living Prophet on the earth today, he leads and guides this Church according to Heavenly Father's will. God has not left us here alone, he loves us and wants us to know Him.

How I live my faith

I love being a member of the LDS Church. Our family attends every Sunday. But we also have many opportunities outside of Sunday worship to participate in Church activities. My youngest son is in Boy Scouts and my 2 older sons achieved their Eagle rank when they were in scouting. My husband volunteers to teach and lead one of the men's groups. And my daughter gets to participate in tons of fun activities with the Young Women's group where I serve as a leader. The Church also plans family activities for all of the members that help everyone to get to know each other and have a wonderful time together. I like to spend personal time studying the scriptures, learning more of our Heavenly Father's love for us, and his plan for all of us. My greatest goal is to be more Christlike and serving my family, friends and those in our ward and community is the best way I know of to follow his example.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Tina
We return to God, our Father in Heaven. We have an opportunity to live with Him eternally if we have lived a righteous life. We can also enjoy our family relationships forever if we have been married in the Temple and lived according to Gods commandments. Our Father wants to give us "all that God hath". In other words, he wants us to follow His commandments so that He can give us Eternal Life. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Tina
Absolutely! God loves us. Why would he leave us here alone without any leadership or guidance? We need him as much, if not more, than those who lived in ancient times. I have personally met the current Prophet, Thomas S. Monson. He is a humble man who has dedicated his life to serving Lord. There is a wonderful spirit about him. I truly believe he is a Prophet of God. Show more Show less

What is the difference between attending a Mormon Church and a Mormon Temple?

Tina
The Mormon church buildings are used for Sunday worship services as well as numerous activities throughout the week. Anyone is welcome to attend these services. The Temple is a special place used for Marriages and other special ceremonies. You must be a member in good standing, following all of God's commandments to be allowed to enter the Temple. The Church encourages all members to be worthy to go to the Temple. Show more Show less
