Hi I'm Dixie
Being a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints means more than belonging to a church. Being a Member means we strive each day to live the commandments, have faith in our Heavenly Father, enjoy happiness in the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ, and have hope in eternal life with our families. Each day is a blessing as we work to be the best we can be. We read the holy scriptures, attend our church meetings, pray for our families, and live clean lives. As we live the teachings of the gospel, we are blessed with the constant companionship of the Holy Spirit. We know we can be happy in this life because we follow the example of Jesus Christ as taught in the Holy Scriptures.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born to parents who were active members of the church. However I had to gain my own testimony of the Gospel and the Saviors Atonement in my life. During trials and disappointments I know the Lord is available to me. As I kneel and prayed for strength and help, I can feel his loving arms around me giving me support. I know he lives and answers my prayers.
How I live my faith
I love attending my church meetings. I read my scriptures and pray daily, I also attend the Temple regularly. These blessings in my life keep my faith in the Lord strong and help me to avoid discouragement and loneliness.
