Hi I'm Holly
I'm a stay-at-home mom to two beautiful sweet kids. My husband is still in school, and we're just trying to keep it together as we move towards accomplishing family goals.
Why I am a Mormon
I believe that we are children of God, and as such, have the potential to become just like Him, similar to the relationships we create in families on this earth. I know I have an eternal purpose and divine worth. I can accomplish great things because I am a daughter of God, and I'm striving to become more like our Savior, Jesus Christ. The LDS church teaches these principles and helps me and my family to follow Christ in faith.
In what ways have your prayers been answered?
My prayers have been answered many times and in many varied and very personal ways, but I can say that most often, the answer to my heaven-directed pleas is a swift and calm peace that comes into my mind and heart that clearly doesn't come from my own troubled psyche. To me, it is a reminder that my Father in heaven is aware of me and my troubles. He won't take those troubles away, but He loves me and wants to help me through whatever it is. Sometimes an answer is more clear direction and guidance than that, but most often, it is the love of God which quickly reminds me that He is there to help us.
How I live my faith
It's simple--we try to live as Christ would want us to and follow the principles of His gospel--we hold family prayer morning and night, we read the scriptures together as a family, and we try to be Christian in all that we do and say. We also attend meetings with our ward each Sunday. I currently serve in a volunteer capacity as the choir director for our ward.
