Hi I'm Alicia

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in Kiev, Ukraine. I love traveling and being outdoors. I am happy, spontaneous, and a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I am blessed to have grown up a member of the church and I have realized that my life with out this gospel has little purpose. I believe in Heaven and eternal life and that there is a God. I know that we are God's children and that he loves us very much. I believe in the Book of Mormon and that Joseph Smith was visited by God and Jesus Christ. The restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ on this earth is proof of God's love for us. He is guiding us today through a modern day prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I am blessed to have had the friends and family that I do because it is their examples that have made me the person that I am today. I am always motivated to learn more and hope to travel the world to get a glimpse of the many people and cultures that this world is full of. I am so grateful for what I have been given and take it for granted too often, I am so blessed to be where I am today.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary and spend my time talking to others about the gospel and my love for my Savior. I attend the temple when I can and do the best I can to be a great missionary. See my profile порусски :) -- Search ламоро

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Alicia
Yes, and Mormons also believe in the Bible but many religions believe that it was the last source of revelation on the Earth. Over time the teachings of the Bible have been interpreted by many different people giving it different meanings. Because of that, a restoration was needed to bring back the true teachings of Jesus Christ. We believe that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon which is revelation from God for us at this time. Joseph Smith, the first prophet of our church said, "Take away the Book of Mormon and the revelations, and where is our religion? We have none". The four cornerstones of our church are: the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith's First Vision, the restoration of the priesthood, and our testimonies of Jesus Christ. These are the things that make this church different from any other. If you are wondering about these things, you should read the Book of Mormon. I have learned more about this gospel by reading it and now have a strong testimony that it is revelation from God and that he truly does love and care for me personally. I am guided by the Spirit when I pray and learn about Heavenly Fathers plan for me. Show more Show less
