Hi I'm Jennifer

I am a simple girl from a very small town. I am a convert. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a simple girl raised in what is referred to as the 'Bible Belt'... I have had many trials and hardships but I couldn't be any happier with my life.. I joined the church 6 years ago after praying and searching to find where God needed me to be. Now after joining the church I have purpose in my life and I never feel like I'm alone. I have lost both my parents in the last 6 years, they have both died. Losing my mother was one of the hardest things I ever have had to deal with. It broke my heart in a million pieces. Shortly after my mothers death is when I found and joined the church. After joining the church I learned about Heavenly Father's Plan of Happiness. What I have learned and the testimony I have gained has helped me deal with the loss of my parents. I now know with all of my heart and soul, I will be with them once again..

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the church. I have been a member for almost seven years. I was led to the church after I had begun to pray to God and asked Him to help me find the truth, and help me know how to give my life completely to Him. I was going through a lot in my life, there were many trial, and I was confused when it came to religion, but I did know that God could help me if I prayed and asked. I went to many churches in search for the truth and for an answer to my prayer. I went to the LDS church one Sunday and after walking through the doors I immediately felt my answer come to my heart, I knew at that moment I was where the Lord wanted me to be. I kept going to church and the missionaries came to teach me more about the church. After each visit with the missionaries I would pray and ask God if the things that taught me were true and each time I prayed I felt the spirit confirm in my heart that it was all true. I was baptized a month later. I now know with all my heart that this is Jesus Christ church and that we hold the complete truth. I am a Mormon because I have read the book of Mormon, studied the gospel, and I have received a witness that it is true from the Holy Spirit. I am now very happy, hopeful, and very blessed because of the Gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping the Lord's commandments, reading the scriptures, praying, following Jesus Christ example by helping others, and by sharing the knowledge of the gospel that I have with others.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Jennifer
We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, that He was sent to the earth to establish the church, to perform miracles, and to die for our sins. We believe that He took our sins upon Himself, was crucified, and was resurrected. Because He died for our sins we can be forgiven of them, because he over came death so can we. Because of Him we will have a eternal life and a chance to live again with our Father in Heaven. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Jennifer
You can ask Heavenly Father if it is true. If you have a true desire to know the truth, you can pray to God, in the name of Jesus Christ, and ask Him. He will answer your prayer by the Holy Spirit, and by the Holy Spirit you will know that it is true. Show more Show less
