Hi I'm Stephanie P.

I’m a Texan, I’m left-handed, I love to dance, and I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I am 22 and the oldest of four children. I am currently a missionary for the Lord in the Georgia Atlanta Mission. When I go home, I will continue with college majoring in chemistry to do research. I love reading, dancing (especially ballroom), crafts and organizing.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up Mormon, but I had to decide for myself if this was really God’s true church that He restored to the earth. It felt right and I knew that my parents knew it was true. They didn’t just believe or hope-they know it is true. Still, I had to get that testimony, that burning conviction, for myself, so I prayed. There was no angel or manifestation, just the (even better) assurance that this was indeed His church and the peace of knowing that what I am doing is pleasing to God. That is worth more than seeing an angel. I know that this is God’s one and only true church and I know that you can pray to find out for yourself. If you really sincerely want to know and you truly intend to act on the answer that He gives you, it may take time, but the Lord will let you know (Moroni 10:3-5, Book of Mormon, page 529).

How I live my faith

I live my faith in my day-to-day actions. My obedience to Heavenly Father shows Him my love for Him (John 14:15). I know that this is His true gospel and I know the joy and peace that it brings to my life, so I try to share His message with everyone around me. That’s why I am currently a missionary for this church. I get to bring this great news to others for eighteen months. Even at home I can help others know about Heavenly Father’s plan for us and the role that Jesus Christ plays and the role that we each play in that plan.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Stephanie P.
They will teach you about your relationship with our Heavenly Father and what He wants us to do so that we can return to live with Him. They will teach you the answer to questions such as where we came from, what our purpose is here and where we go after this life. They help you make changes to bring your life in closer harmony with His teachings. The best part is that they will tell you how God's true church is back on the earth. Show more Show less
