Hi I'm Alaine!
I'm a Mormon.
I'm the little sister in a large family of brilliant brothers and sisters. My brothers are my heroes. I am a widow, a mother of four and a terrible speller. I have remarried, over twenty years ago, am a step-mother, and the grandmother to nine grandchildren. I am an attorney and strive to be the nicest person in the courtroom. I'm trying to remember how to sew, love making math games for my grandchildren to practice their multiplication tables, and my Marine just returned safely from Afghanistan.
Why I am a Mormon
I believe Jesus Christ. Throughout the New Testament and the Book of Mormon, the Lord promises me that if I will always follow his example, I will always have his spirit to be with me.
How I live my faith
The Lord teaches that you cannot have faith and fear at the same time, so to answer the question, I live my faith by not living in fear. You probably know, that is not easy to do. Good thing we have Christ's example: I sincerely try to do what our Savior would do, in all times and in all places. I have a lot of reminders that help try to be more consistent: I have regular daily personal prayer, and prayer with my family. I read the scriptures daily. I visit the temple on a regular basis, usually once a week. I attend church meetings every Sunday. I wear modest clothing. I avoid products including television shows or movies, that degrade my feelings for the Savior. I get enough rest, exercise and good food to stay healthy and respectful of my body. I try my very best to be honest with my fellowmen and in my business dealings. I look for opportunities to be of service to others. It is a process, but your capacity certainly improves with desire, time and effort, and that is the point of a life of faith = no fear.
