Hi I'm Dixie

Being a Ward Missionary is very rewarding.

About Me

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.

What is the difference between attending church and the temple?

Dixie
Mormons attend their Sunday church meetings in a dedicated chapel. Each city or town is divided into individual parishes, or what Mormon's call a "Ward". Each ward is assigned a chapel or Ward Building where we attend our meetings. Each chapel houses one, two, or three wards who all attend their meetings at consecutive hours on sunday. Smaller congregations are called a "Branch", these branches also have their own meeting place or church building and attend meetings on Sunday. Anyone can attend a church meeting member or non - member alike. The Temple is different than a chapel in that, specific ordinances and ceremonies are performed there. Members who have obeyed God's commandments and are worthy to enter the Temple can serve in the Temple Monday through Saturday. The majority of Mormon Temples are open from early morning till early evening. The first time an individual attends the Temple they will obtaining their own individual ordinance, there after they serve the Lord by performing ordinances for others. Show more Show less

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Dixie
LDS members strive tp live a simple, Christlike life. We believe that families come first in our lives. Mormon's attend church meetings regularly, spend time with family, read scriptures, pray, and strive to live clean, wholesome lives. We do our best to help and serve members of our church, and those who are not of our faith. Our lives have meaning and purpose as we try to emulate Christ and his teachings. Show more Show less
