Hi I'm Laurie

I'm a Mormon. I AM a Christian.

About Me

I work in private business research and am a private fund manager. I enjoy walking with music science and science ficiton. theatre movies and great literature. My friends enjoy good conversations with me especially around a good plate of exotic food. I am middle aged single and prefer the big city life.

Why I am a Mormon

As I said in a discussion with the missionaries while teacnhing an investigator recently the Spirit overwhelmed me and I flet Gods love. Yes, that sounds reall sweet - I sometimes think I was drafteed or compelled but God wanted me to join and I feel very much at peace with it. I was 14 at the tmie I first was aquatinted with the church. I went to an open house and was taught just about everything there and I was in love with it from then on. The first thing I remember them saying is that we believe in Jesus Christ which meant they got off to a good start. I was given a copy of the Book of Moromon and before I read it I prayed and I got the burning in my bosom that it was true. When I read it - it truely testified to me of its truth. I may not always have the right attitude but deep down I know this is where I should be and where I truely desire to be. It is the true church like Peter, where else can I go thow hast the words of eternal life.  

How I live my faith

In the past few years I have worked with missionaries, children teenagers and adult men. We are asked to help the church in many ways. When I am asked to leave an assignment I like to smile at my replacement with my tongue in my cheek say "you ruined my life" I do take my responsibilities seriously and they are great ways for us to grow to become more of what God wants us to be.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Laurie
Ancient prophets and others on the american continent kept records of what happened during thier time. They testified of Jesus Christ and had the fulness of the gospel. They taught repentance and faith and hope in Jesus Christ. Christ visitied America after his resurection. Mormon was a prophet who livedd in the 4th century AD who edited and compiled on plates mostly the religious records of these people that lived on the american continent and gave it to his son Moroni. Moroni faced the destruction of his civilization. He wanted the history of his civilization to be preserved. Therefore, he hid the record. Moroni apeareed to Joseph Smith as an angel in the 1820s. Joseph Smith recieved the record on plates and by revelation translated the Book of Mormon into english. Show more Show less
