Hi I'm Heidi

I'm a licensed cosmetologist, I like to have fun, I love the outdoors and jamming out to music, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm your average girl trying to live life to the fullest in this crazy world. I am a licensed cosmetologist, I work at a college and I like to have fun. I like to read shop and hang out with friends. I love to play with kids. If I choose to go back to school I want to go to culinary school. And best of all I'm a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the gospel is true! Like most people I have had to figure out for myself if the Gospel is true. I know why I am on the earth and where I am going and what my purpose in life is. I know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith and I know Thomas S. Monson is The Prophet today. I have had to many experiences in my life where I have felt that someone is there pulling me through when it seems impossible to go on. I know that without the knowledge of the Gospel I would be so lost and confused. I want to be able to Live with my family for not only this life but in the life to come! I know there is life after death and that if I so desire I can return to live with Heavenly Father again, and I know the only way to do that is to live as Jesus had lived.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by my actions. I strive to be more Christ-like everyday. All though this may be hard at times, when I strive to be Christ-like and serve others, my day goes more smoothly. I attend church every week without hesitation, I read the scriptures and pray. I feel like I have more patience with others and I am happier. I also feel like I have more time in my day to get things done.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

Heidi
At church we wear a suit or shirt, tie, slacks, and dress shoes if you are a boy. And for girls we wear a dress or skirt. However if you come in jeans and a t shirt don't worry you can still attend. We dress nice to show our respect to Heavenly Father and it also helps us to stay reverent, and to remind us where we are and why we are at church. We celebrate all Christian Holidays, New Years, Valentines Day, Halloween and national Holidays. We celebrate birthdays weddings and big events just like all other religions. Show more Show less

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Heidi
Mormon Church services are very simple. Visitors are always very welcome and we love to have them. We have our main service which we call Sacrament Meeting in this meeting we pray pass the Sacrament people speak and we sing 3 or 4 songs. It is only an hour and 15 minutes long. We then have sunday school for 45 minutes where we study the scriptures. If you have kids that are younger then 12 They will attend primary for the next two hours. In primary they will learn about thing such as baptism, how to help and honor your parents to be kind to others, how to keep our bodies healthy ect. You may attend church anytime you choose. Simply visit a church building on a Sunday at either 9 am 11am or in some places 1pm you can visit lds.org to find a meeting house near you, with meeting times. Show more Show less
