Hi I'm Angela

I am passionate about my family, my education, and my liberty. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a student, and a mentor. I homeschool my children and am an undergraduate student studying political philosophy. My interests include provident living, classical education, georgics, nature, and spending time with family. Reading and other cultural arts activities are an everyday part of my activities.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My testimony of Christ's gospel has grown throughout my life, and I have witnessed as well s have been a participant in many life-changing experiences which have helped my testimony grow. I know that God lives, He loves me, and I know that He has a specific mission for me ~ the details of which continue to unfold as I learn to submit my will to His. I have a testimony of agency and the importance of it in my life is manifest more and more each day. I know without any doubt that the Lord will follow through on His promises to me if I will but have faith to follow through on the promptings I receive through the Holy Ghost. The past couple of years have been a proving ground for me, and on occasion I have faltered but have quickly learned and have moved forward. I am thankful for that knowledge and am relying more and more on the Lord's guiding hand in each day's decisions and for longer-term goals.

How I live my faith

I attend my weekly church meetings on Sunday. I substitute as a chorister or pianist for the ladies' meeting as needed. My current area of service is as the cub scout committee chairperson. We have a great group of cub scouts! I also serve as a merit badge counselor for our boy scouts, and love working with them. I help provide meals for those in need, and help with various service projects which help the community.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

In Christ's gospel there are various levels of understanding and commitment. The Lord will not ask us, nor does He expect us, to make covenants or promises that we do not understand, because once we have made that covenant we are bound. In the temple adults make sacred covenants with the Lord, more in-depth covenants to keep His commandments. Nothing secret takes place. Sacred is a more appropriate word because the covenants we make with the Lord are personal. One must adhere to covenants made at baptism to be found worthy to enter the temple. The Lord's House is a House of order, and if our lives are not in order, and we are not living up to the commitments we have made, we will not be ready to make further commitments. Show more Show less
