Hi I'm Hilary!

I'm an only child, a newly-wed, and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a full time student and I also work full time for an insurance company. I'm going to school to become an Occupational Therpay Assistant. My husband and I are recently married as of August 14 and we're still getting adjusted to married life. I love listening to music, watching movies and having fun with my friends. I like to be crafty, but it has to be simple.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my entire life, but my true conversion was when I was preparing to serve a mission. As an adult I read the Book of Mormon all the way through for the first time and as I read I couldn't stop and wanted to read more. I found myself reading at least fourteen chapters a day! I followed Moroni's counsel in the end to ask the Lord if it was true and as I knelt I felt immediately that it was. I know the Book of Mormon is truly scripture written by the ancient prophets of the Americas and stemming from that knowledge I also know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet who translated that book of scripture by the power of God and restored His true Church back on the Earth.

How I live my faith

I've been asked to work in the Primary with chidren ages three to eleven. I direct the music and teach the children songs pertaining to Christ and His Gospel principles.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Hilary!
The most important first step to take is to read the Book of Mormon with the purpose to find out if it's true. You must have that sincere desire. Read it, think about it, study it. It is not just another book. It is scripture. You must also pray to Heavenly Father and ask Him, with the intent to follow His guidance, if what you just read is true. Be willing to accept His answer. He loves you and will never steer you wrong. If you know that the Book of Mormon is true, then Joseph Smith was a true prophet. If Joseph Smith was a true prophet, then every commandment and gospel principle he has restored is true as well which means that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint is the only true church on the earth today containing the full and everlasting Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know it to be true just as millions of other people throughout the world do. Show more Show less
