LaRita : Mormon.

Hi I'm LaRita

About Me

I am a mother of 5children and a grandmother of 17 grandchildren. I retired from being a Nurse and a Nurse-midwife. I had gone to a university and obtained a master degree in Maternal-Child Health. I taught nursing at a university and practiced as a Nurse-Midwife. I retired about 13 years ago. Now I like to knit sweaters, hats and do family-history.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in Jesus Christ and His Father, my Father-in Heaven. I believe that Jesus Christ has a body, as His Father has a body. Jesus was resurrected into His body on the third day of His death. I love the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, I am so grateful for the Priesthood and the blessings of the Temple. THAT IS WHY I AM A MEMBER OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS.

Personal Stories

What blessings have come through your faith in Jesus Christ?

I have such peace and joy in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, specially when I pray and thank Him for all of my blessings, I am so blessed!! I do not think that I could live without the Gift of the Holy Ghost. Some years ago I had a stroke and I could not speak or read. I was in the hospital and my Bishop came with my Home Teacher. They gave me a blessing, using their Priesthood. After 70hours of speech therapy, I learned to speak and read again. I still have some problems with a few words, specially when I am tired, but most people would not know that I had the stroke. I feel I am very blessed.

How I live my faith

I try to be of service to others, I try to be like Jesus Christ and love everyone, not judge others. I know that is hard, especially when am trying to drive and someone cuts in between my car and another. I serve in a Family History Center, helping others, that do not know how to use the Internet and computers. They are trying to find their ancestors. I try to help my neighbors, I pray for those are ill, or depressed, and bring soup and bread.
