Hi I'm Bev

I grew up in Jamaica West Indies.I Knew nothing about Mormons .Guess what? now I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of three children. Love to dance , cook ,play tennis and serving in my community. I am a teacher by profession I presently teach 7th grade Global Studies. I enjoy entertaining ,playing with the children in my neighborhood, visiting my neighbors and attending church with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon as a result of many reasons. Foremost, I gain a personal testimony from reading the book of Mormon.Secondly I observed a dramatic change in my husband after he was baptized.I experienced the influence of the Holy Spirit which helped me realized the fullness of the gospel. The friendship and selfless service of members of the church was also a deciding factor. The commitment and testimony of the wonderful Missionaries who knocked on my door. It is very Important to live by examples. Although, I studied the scriptures and asked the Lord guidance to help me to make the right decision ; I observed the members of the Church a lot . I realized they lived what they teach and they are not just a "bag of mouth ". I come to realized this everlasting gospel is true, make sense and very logical. I understand more clearly the atonement of Jesus Christ and readily use it in my everyday life. Most importantly , I learned about personal revelation and come to accept the words of our modern day Prophets. Although I lost many friends and family members support I gained many other friends and supporters. Without a shadow of a doubt I can assure you this gospel is real and eternal.

How I live my faith

I honestly try to use the principles the church outlined as my guideline. I support the program of the church, attend my meetings regularly, serve in my community . I however rely on daily prayer, scripture studies, family home evening and the support of my family,friends and others to help me. In no way least I try to exemplified the Savior in all I do each day, heavily depending on him to get me through every step of the way. I try to put in practice as best as I can the Atonement to work. I asked myself the question each day What would the Savior have me do today.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Bev
Our bodies are gift from Heavenly father, they are not just for this lifetime but for eternity. If we do not take care of our bodies the spirit of the Lord will not dwell with us. The spirit will not dwell in unholy temples. We can compare the physical temple to our bodies. No unclean spirit can enter the Holy Temple likewise will not dwell in our temples if we put garbage into them or destroyed them . Show more Show less
