Hi I'm Joye

I live in Georgia and have a wonderful family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 4 daughters, a grandmother of 8 granddaughters and 6 grandsons, and a great grandmother of one beautiful little girl. I enjoy decorating since that was my working career. I also enjoy scrapbooking. I love to travel and enjoy meeting new people.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the church and the direction it has given me in my life. I am a convert and have learned so much about the gospel and the purpose I have here on this earth. I know that families are forever and that is a great comfort to me. I love going to the Temple and appreciate the knowledge I learn each time I go. I know that Heavenly Father looks after me and that Jesus Christ died for our sins. I am glad that we have the Scriptures and the Book of Mormon to learn more about how to be more like Christ and follow his example.

How I live my faith

I attend my meeting each Sunday even if I am out of town. It is great that we have this world wide church. I am a visiting teacher and have a strong testimony of this assignment. I have held many different positions in the church and each one has taught me so many things and have given me opportunities to expand my talents.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Joye
Not all Mormons are required to serve a mission but every member is considered a missionary. Young men at the age of 19 are eligible to serve a mission and young women at the age of 21 are eligible to serve. Adults may serve a mission if they have a desire. My husband and I are looking forward to serving a mission soon. Currently we are serving a Ward Missionaries and have the opportunity to teach other about the Gospel. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Joye
Faith is a belief that is not based on proof. It is belief in God, teachings or in doctrines. Faith comes from within or from the heart. I have Faith that the church is true and that the things I have been taught are true. I trust in God and in his promises as made through Christ and the Scriptures. Show more Show less
