Hi I'm Naomi

I'm a Mormon. I was born to US parents in Germany in 1959. I grew up in Ohio, and lived in Canada and USA.

About Me

I am 50 years old, and live in Pennsylvania. My Branch is small and we are a close fellowship It has been such a blessing to be a member of the church, as I have many great brothers and sisters who share a strong testimony. I was born in Germany, lived most of my life in The United States and a few years in Canada. I like to travel and love history. I am a photographer, and like to record events and the special things that members do that we enjoy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because our Faith is the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. The last supper illustrates how the church was established and the authority of the priesthood and the teaching and ordinance sof the Gospel through the Apostles and The Seventy. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, but in North America. The Gospel was lost and later restored through Joseph Smith, our first Prophet. He earnestly prayed to know what church was true and received revalation that none of the day were. He was entrusted with the sacred task to restore the Church of Jesus Christ to the Earth that we might learn, serve and obtain Eternal life through learning of and making keeping the coveneants we make in the Gospel. I testify that I know this is the true Church of Jesus Christ, And that I can retuRn to my Heavenly Father through obedience.

How I live my faith

Most of all, I live my faith through my callings and service which I find very fulfilling. I teach Gospel Principals for Womens Auxilliary twice a month, serve as secretery, and help out in The Family History Center, where patrons and members come to research their family history. I REALLY enjoy the District and General Conferences.

Are Mormons Christians?

Naomi
Without question, we are Christians, and the Church was re-established as it was with Jesus Christ and the Apostles at the last Supper. We partake of the Sacrament to take his his flesh and blood upon ourselves in remembrance of him, and rake hisname upon ourselves. We do this weekly, renewing our covenants with him in our weekly Sunday Sacrament. Show more Show less

What is the Law of Chastity?

Naomi
The law of Chastitiy is to refrain from relations of an intimate nature outside of marriage. This applies whether you are 18 or 88. It is God's law to protct us from the hold of Satan and the harm that comes with such activity. It is to protect you. We do not allow ourselves into such situations that we might be alone with another married person, or another single person, so that we do not place ourselves within the grasp of temptation.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Naomi
A husband and wife canbe together forever, by following and making all of the covenants beinging with baptism. In Temple Weddings and marital sealings, we can be together for all time and eternity. Families that join the church can also have time to study, covenenants and obedience to the Gospel. If your are married outside of the temple and have children, you and your children can be sealed for all time and eternity. Any children born within the Temple coveneant are already sealed to you. The work may seem daunting, and does take some time for converts, but it is certainly attainable and the blessings are mighty and beautiful. Your family, and those past and future can be sealed to you for all time and eternity. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

Naomi
The Holy Ghost is Heavenly Father's agent who is with us day and night. He hears our prayers, and is our protector. He will warns us of danger, or that we might be straying or being deceived. He is that small voice that I listen to, and trust when I need guidance. He is the part of the Godhead of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost. After Baptism we are blessed with the gift of the Holy Ghost, but cannot take it for granted. Show more Show less
