Hi I'm Dawn

I'm a Mormon and proud to be so.

About Me

Hi! I work as a private maths tutor. I love to read and to walk in the beautiful countryside where I live. I have a real soft spot for Cornwall and penguins.

Why I am a Mormon

Next month (Jan11) I will have been a member of the church for 20 years and in all that time I have never once lost my faith in the gospel and in the truthfulness of the Church. I was brought into the Church by two missionaries who knocked on my door one dark and cold evening back in Jan 1991. The previous summer I had a couple of lessons with missionaries and been given a copy of the Book of Mormon but for some reason they stopped coming and the Book of Mormon remainder largely unread on my shelf. So when they knocked on my door, to their surprise, I invited them in straightaway. I thought that they were following up on the earlier visit but they told me that they had no record of those visits and had knocked after praying about which street to work on. Now I hadn't even been thinking about finding out more about God but I just knew that what they were teaching me was true. Of course, now I understand that that was because of the Spirit. About 2 weeks later I was baptised. It hasn't always been easy trying to live the gospel but I still know it is right and will continue for the rest of my days to try to be more obedient and faithful.

How I live my faith

Currently the Lord has assigned me three roles. In the first role I teach a lesson once a month on a Sunday to the women in the Church. My second role involves working with people to help them research their family history. My third role involves working with a partner to visit several of the women from our local church to share a message once a month and to help and uplift them as necessary.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that the family is the most important unit of the Church. We believe that we can live together in our families not just for this life but beyond. We believe that the family provides the best environment to learn to love, respect and serve all people. We also believe that our greatest joys in life come from our family relationships.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

We believe that we choose to come to earth to learn and grow so that we can develop God-like/Christ-like qualities to prepare us for the work we will do after this life. Show more Show less
