Hi I'm Elley Dreher

I am a single mom and try my best to live by example of being a Christian. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I've been a Mormon for four years. I am a single mom of a 17 year old who is not a member of the church. It can sometimes be a struggle raising a teen anyway but sometimes can be more challenging with him not being a Saint. He don't understand why I don't drink coffee anymore and don't watch the kind of movies that I used to anymore. Since being a Mormon, I truly realized how much junk is out there in TVland and language that is used. I'm hoping that one day my son will come to realize that the Lord truly loves him and that there are many people out there praying for him. He's not a bad kid and it's a truly a blessing having him in my life. It would just be nice going to church together and doing church activities together as a family. I am the pioneer Mormon in my family, that I am aware of. I love being a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a Baptist. In the many months before I became a Mormon, I had a nagging feeling that something was missing in being a Baptist. I finally found what I was looking for that fateful day of meeting the missionaries and finaly having my first home meeting. When I prayed that first prayer of whether this was true, the Holy Ghost answered my prayers. I knew from my tears of joy that I finally found my spritual home church.

How I live my faith

By doing my best of being an example. When being a Christian, in my opinion, it shows in your actions. People are watching you once they realize that you are a Christian, particulary a Mormon. You don't have to shout it from the rooftops. It shows in how you treat people, but mainly how you treat yourself.

What is the difference between attending church and the temple?

Elley Dreher
You can go to any church and not be a member to attend. But in order to go to the Temple, you have to be endowed. There are classes that you attend first. Then you have to have an interview with the Bishop and the Stake President. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Elley Dreher
We should have faith in the Lord and Heavenly Father at all times. We also need to have faith within our selves to know that He loves us beyond measure and that the Savior made the ultimate sacrifice for us all. I take that personally, it's the only way to take it. Show more Show less
