Hi I'm Sister Heather Lopez!

I'm active in trying to make the world around me a better place. I'm a musician. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love: my family, and my friends. I love to help other people (I plan on going into Social Work). I'm a musician and I love life in general. I am a Mormon and can still have tons of fun being one!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because my life has always been the best when I follow the teachings of the Savior. I used to think the church was holding me back but now I know it was protecting me from things. I learned that the church was the reason I didn't have more problems. I love the joy and happiness I get from trying to become like the Savior. He is the epitomy of service and sacrifice.

How I live my faith

While I was at a church school it was easy to live my faith because so many around me were. I try to make more of an effort though and go the extra mile. I've done service at the Food and Care Coalition in my town, and volunteered hours pf service at my old high school with the school's Social Work. We implemented several programs there to help the students. I love that I can do social work as a professional job but I'm not going into it for the money. I plan to volunteer still even when I do get a good job because the Lord said "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” (Matt. 25:37–40.) I am currently serving a mission and trying my best to serve the people I come in contact with. I try to share the love and light of Christ with everyone and try to act as He would.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Sister Heather Lopez!
Church services consist of a 3 blocks of time. Each block lasts an hour. The first hour is usually the sacrament meeting in which we partake of the sacrament, hear from a few speakers and sing hymns. The second hour is sunday school where we are taught a lesson by a prepared teacher. The last hour of church is where the women meet together in a meeting called as relief society and the men meet in a priesthood class. There we are taught a lesson as well. Visitors are always welcome in our church! Of course you can come! Show more Show less
