Hi I'm Lori

I'm a single LDS mother who lives in Arizona.

About Me

I am a single mom of 2 boys. My oldest boy is 11 years old and was diagnosed with Autism. My youngest boy is 9 1/2 years old. I am not going to college right at the moment but I am planning on attending in the Spring of 2011. I enjoy listening to ALL types of music, reading, watching MOST types of movies. I enjoy watching several different tv shows.

Why I am a Mormon

I was not born into the church. My parents have been lifelong members... but I was adopted. I came to them at 3 days old and was sealed to them in the Mesa temple. I was baptized at the age of 8. Did the whole rebellion thing for many years. Came back in 2005 and received my own endowments in 2006. I have a firm testimony of the power of the Atonement and our Savior's endless love & mercy. I know without any doubt that the gospel of Jesus Christ is TRUE.

How I live my faith

I am a "designated sub" in primary. My calling is basically there so the primary teachers have someone to call when they are not available to teach their class.

What is the difference between attending a Mormon Church and a Mormon Temple?

Lori
Attending a Mormon church, you worship the savior, attend classes, take the sacrament and anyone can come, visitors are Always welcome. Attending the temple is different. Only worthy members with a Temple Recommend signed by the bishopric & stake presidency may enter. Weddings are performed, family sealings, baptisms for the dear, etc.. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Lori
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the sacrifice he made for all of us to be able to live and to be able to repent and live with him again. If we apply it to our own lives, we get a real sense of peace. Show more Show less
