Hi I'm Heather

I'm a teacher. I LOVE to read. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a history and geography teacher. I love singing (so musicals are a favorite of mine), reading, movies, and traveling. I've been to many places in the U.S. and also to France and Australia, and would love to go to other places to learn of other cultures! I love to meet new people and like making friends. Although I'm shy at first, I warm up to people pretty quickly! I am considered a Single Adult in our Church-I have never married. I do have many friends who ARE married besides those who are single.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS faith so I've never known anything different. As a child, I normally went to Church because it was expected of me. As I have grown older, I know being a member of this Church is the right path. I often wonder what it would have been like if I hadn't known about the Church. I certainly wouldn't be in a good place.

How I live my faith

I have had many callings over the years including music leader, choir director, and working with the Young Women. I am a Visiting Teacher and have a great partner with wonderful ladies that I get to see each month! I read my scriptures daily as well as pray morning and night. I'm not as perfect with my scripture reading like I should be, but I am always striving to improve. Instead of just reading them, I try very hard to study and ponder them. It's not an easy task for me, but it is a goal I have set. I attend Church every week and try to go to the temple often. I am working on building my testimony to a stronger level.

What is being a Mormon like?

Heather
Everyone seems to think that we are too restrictive in what we can do, eat, drink, etc. and that we are forced to follow all of the guidelines placed before us by the Prophet. The one thing that is important is that we all have a choice in what we do. We are not forced to follow the guidelines and for me, it isn't restrictive at all. My choice gives me more freedom to be myself than if I followed some of the world's ways of doing things. I am very happy being a member of the Church! Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe happens after we die?

Heather
After we die, we believe that we return to live with our Heavenly Father. We will go to a place termed "Paradise" where we will be given the opportunity to teach those who have not had the gospel in their Earth life. We will also be able to be taught as well. Eventually, we will be judged for our works here on Earth and will then go to live in the Celestial, Terrestrial, or Telestial kingdoms. We strive for the Celestial kingdom so we may receive the fulness of God's presence and glory. Show more Show less
