Hi I'm Faith

I am a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, and a friend. But most importantly, I am a daughter of God!

About Me

I've lived in South Mississippi my whole life. I love living in an area where there are so many Christians that love our Savior Jesus Christ. I grew up in a large, close knit family. I am happily married to my best friend and we are the proud parents of five wonderful children. I enjoy spending time with my family traveling, working in our garden, riding 4 wheelers, camping, fishing, and playing sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I had the blessing of being raised in a Mormon family. As a teenager, I really began reading the Bible and Book of Mormon and asking questions. It was at that time that I gained a testimony of the church. I knew that I wanted to raise my own family in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. The gospel of Jesus Christ has brought purpose and meaning to my life. It has shown me how to raise a family. It has helped me realize that we are all God's children and that we should love and serve our fellowman.

How I live my faith

One thing I love about our church is the opportunity it gives us to serve others. I have had the chance to work with each age group - children, youth, and adults. No matter where I have been asked to serve, I always learn things that help me become a better person. Jesus Christ showed the perfect example of loving and serving others. Through the church I am learning to follow Him.

What is the Relief Society?

The Relief Society is the organization for women in the church. It was founded in 1842. The motto of the Relief Society is "Charity Never Faileth." All women, from the age of 18 on up, are part of the Relief Society. This organization teaches women to love themselves, the Lord, their families, and each other. There are many activities and lessons in Relief Society that provide opportunities for women to learn new things, to develop talents, and to serve and love one another. Whether a woman is struggling with the loss of their husbands job or celebrating the birth of a new baby, women in Relief Society are encouraged to be there to support and uplift one another.

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

Mormon women are very diverse. Some are married, while others are single (widowed, divorce, or never married). We come from every race and from a variety of different backgrounds. Some have children, others do not. Some work outside the home and others are stay at home moms. What unites us is our belief that we are all daughters of God. He loves us and we love Him. We serve Him, our families, and those around us. Show more Show less
