Hi I'm Aubrey

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

About Me

I'm a friend, a sister, a daughter, and a wife. In my free time I catch up with friends on Facebook and write books. My favorite things to do are play games, almost any kind, and to do outdoor sports and recreational activities. I love my family and my friends, and Sunday is my favorite day of the week.

Why I am a Mormon

I love God, because he was there for me when I rejected him. I turned away, and his hand was stretched out still. So when I turned back to try and find my way in the dark, I found him waiting patiently, ready to forgive and forget and bring light back into my life. God saved me, and he loves me, so I love him, and I know that I need him. I am nothing without the Lord and the gifts he has given me. With him I am talented, beautiful, and helpful. Without him I lose my gifts, my talents, my beautiful confidence, and my helpfulness is twisted into hurt. I would be nothing without God and his wonderful plan for me. His son, Jesus Christ, died for me. He loves me too, and I love him for the sacrifice that he so willingly made. I need them both, and that brings me to The Holy Ghost. He too loves me, and though I have not always allowed him to be with me, He was ready to rush back into my heart once I had committed to return to God. These three members of the Godhead worked together amazingly to save me from myself, and from the others who sought to exploit my weaknesses. I cannot ever express the gratitude I have for them, and I can never repay the debt. I need them, oh I need them. The grace of God is sufficient for a sinner like me. That truth lifts my spirits more than any other gift I have ever received. I know they live. I know they love me, and I know that they have sent their prophets out into the World again to help me more fully understand their doctrine and their love. I know that Joseph Smith saw the Father and the Son and felt The Holy Spirit. I know that he received revelation on where to find, and how to translate the Book of Mormon, and I know that the Church that the Lord inspired him to create is the only church that has received the fullness of the truth of the Gospel. I know that they live, and I know that they love me. These truths are the most important things I have ever learned in this life. Everything else is merely an extension of these truths. This is my Testimony of God and the Gospel. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the Lords commands. I go to church every Sunday (more for my own spiritual renewal than anything else) and help out in the Primary (where the kids are taught) with whatever is needed. Sometimes I lead the music, and sometimes I teach, sometimes I'm just there to help keep the kids from getting too loud. I try to always visit the sisters on my visiting teaching list, but don't always succeed, and I support my husband in his many callings.

Are Mormons Christians?

Aubrey
Of course we are. We believe that Jesus Christ is our savior. The only person who could have come to earth to save us from our sins, if we will repent and come unto him. He is our Savior, our Redeemer, our Spiritual brother, and our dearest Friend. He loves us and wants us to turn to him, and take part in the glorious grace that he has made available through his sacrifice. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that he loves me, and that he is consistently there for me when I need him, and even when I think I don't. He is my personal Savior as well as savior to everyone else in the world. What else can be said. He lives. Show more Show less

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Aubrey
Faith is Jesus Christ reminds us that no one, except him is perfect, that we are, in fact all imperfect and flawed, which is why we needed Jesus to sacrifice himself for us in the first place. With the knowledge that we are all flawed it is easier to forgive others of their weaknesses and their mistakes because we know that we too are flawed and that Jesus has forgiven us, so we also should forgive our friends, and our family members when we feel we have been wronged by them. Having faith in Christ teaches me to be more forgiving and more accepting of the flaws and problems that other people have. Because of my faith in Christ I do not judge anyone, because he has never judged me. when I come to him for help he only reaches out his hand, and tells me what to do so that I can return to him he does not berate me or tell me I am not worthy of his love. He is all acceptance, all forgiveness, and all love. He encourages me to be more like him. Show more Show less
