Hi I'm Jasmin

I'm a Mormon and I love life.

About Me

I look at the sky every morning and hope the clouds make some new shape I can picture something in. I love to dance in the kitchen and in the rain and randomly down the lane. I go to college and smile at people as they walk by and hope that they smile and pass it on to someone else. I like to run down hills so that I can feel like I'm flying and I have done it since the hill to the buses in middle school. I like to curl up on the coach and enjoy cute-cheesy movies. I like to experiment in the kitchen, and I quickly dispose of ideas that fail to meet my very mixed palate. I like to get lost in a novel that has a happy ending. I like to see in the good in the world even if it is swirling in chaos around me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Jesus Christ's church established on the earth today. The knowledge has come from living the doctrine and seeing for myself the blessings of being obedient. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet who was the Lord's way of reestablishing his church again on the earth. I know this because The Book of Mormon has truths that I cannot deny. It has stories that mean the world to me. I know that I am Mormon because I have been blessed with the examples of kind and loving individuals that have taught me truths through their testimony.

How I live my faith

President Gordon B Hinckley, one of the prophets of the latter days, has said, "The lives of our people must become the most meaningful expression of our faith." His words represent how I want to live my life. I want to live in accordance to the will of the Lord because He is who we believe and worship through living good lives. I have been able to do my best and where I fall short Heavenly Father has lifted me. I get the chance to live my faith by getting to know others and learning to love them as Heavenly Father loves them. I live my faith by being the best me possible. Its hard sometimes when a song is popular and fun but has lyrics that are suggestive, but I've been able to conquer Satan's influence in my life by listening to happy music.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Jasmin
Mormons believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. We believe that Mary was Jesus's earthly mother and Heavenly Father is His father.   We believe that Christ is the one person in the history of the world that has lived a completely perfect life because he never sinned. His complete purity gave him the power the atone or make up for all of the sins of every individual. He is the one person whose blood can clean us of our sins. So in the Garden of Gethsemane he paid the price for all our sins. The sacrifice of His life was the one thing that could tip the scales of justice in our favor if we repent and choose to follow Christ. Jesus Christ the Savior of the world. Show more Show less
