Do you want to chat with a missionary?

Hi I'm Mimi

I'm a Singing Bookworm.

About Me

I'm on the shorter side of average height and am half way through my twenties. I was born a blonde, and my hair has slowly darkened. I have lived in the East, Midwest, and West in the US and in Brazil. I have never lived anywhere that I did not think had its own way to be beautiful. I am a college graduate, wife, and mother. If I am happy, I'm singing. If I'm sad, I'm singing. I prefer to sing Christian songs, church hymns, and songs from musicals. I am trying to learn how to garden, sew, and play the piano. I enjoy scrapbooking, and my only real addiction is reading. Putting down a book when the hour has grown late is a recurrent struggle. There are only two things I need to be beautiful: a knowledge of who I am and a smile on my face.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS Church by a mother whose family has been members for generations and a father who joined during his college years. I stayed in the Church, because I have received answers to prayers, because I have realized that happiness comes from living the gospel, and because I feel the Spirit testifying to me daily that the decisions I am making are the correct ones. No other decision in my life has brought me as much peace and joy as being faithful to the covenants I have made. Being a Mormon has not made me immune to sorrow nor untouched from heartache, but it has provided me with the foundation I have needed to overcome all obstacles and sadness life has placed in my way.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day. It's like my skin. I can't shed it. It is a part of me. I try to find some way to serve every single day. I do this in various ways. When I hear of a woman who has a heavy load, such as moving, sick, overwhelmed, etc., I call her and offer my service. When the missionaries need a member to go out with them to teach, then I offer to go and share Christ's invitation to come to Him, repent, and be baptized. I write letters to women who have not come to Church recently, and I invite them to return, tell them of myself, and share a gospel message. I go into the homes of other sisters to see how they are doing and if they need any extra attention that month. I invite young mothers over or give them rides to the park, because I know how important it is to have someone over the age of 5 to talk to during the day. I provide meals for people who are without work or sick or otherwise needy. There have been many people who have been angels in my life, and I strive daily to be an angel in the lives of others.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Mimi
When I go out with the missionaries, I commonly hear this response, "Well, if God and Christ have organized their Church on the earth again, why don't people know? Why aren't They telling anyone?" They are telling people! We want to tell everyone. We want everyone to know. That is why Mormon missionaries proselyte. We have peace and joy in our lives, and we want to share it. We have the fullness of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, and we want all to partake of it. Show more Show less
