Hi I'm Heidi

I will always love Christ. I will never stop learning. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an aspiring author with a degree in theatrical makeup. I'm an active Democrat, an outspoken Feminist, and a mom of two. I love the martial arts, computer games, Biblical studies, and nature. I'm a health nut who loves making pastries, and yes, I realize the irony. I met my companion in a medieval history and reenactment club--we're total nerds! I want to learn Hebrew and get a Master's in Philosophy.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I find the idea of eternal families and eternal progression to be very appealing. I hope to spend eternity with my husband, learning at the feet of God. What could be better?  

How I live my faith

By exploring, questioning, and learning, and by trying to do what Christ taught. Christ said that the two greatest commandments are "love God" and "love thy neighbor." As long as I strive to live those commandments, I consider myself faithful.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Heidi
I would hope that no group of women could be described with a blanket statement. Mormon women vary according to culture and personality. Hopefully they try to be good people, but most people try to do that. Any stereotype outside of that either isn't true or shouldn't be. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Heidi
No, but many tend to get carried away in how they see him. He did, after all, organize the religion that is central to many Mormon's lives. But he was just a man--a man with flaws, just like the rest of us. God works through what He can get, and none of us are perfect. Show more Show less
