Hi I'm Faith

I am a mother of young children. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I got my degree in Elementary Education but "retired" soon after graduating to be a stay at home mom to my beautiful children. I love using what I learned in college to organize a household, teach my children, and bless my family! I find great personal fulfillment in teaching my children and watching them learn, grow, and develop new talents.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but I, like everyone else, had to be personally converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. During a particularly hard time during my teenage years my mother asked me if I was reading the Book of Mormon everyday. After resisting her at first I decided to make the commitment to read the Book of Mormon everyday. I wrote this commitment inside the front cover of my copy of the Book of Mormon and signed and dated it. Reading The Book of Mormon everyday brought a new peace into my life and a closeness to God that I needed. I can trace almost every good thing that has happened in my life back to that decision that lead to me gaining a strong testimony of the restored gospel.

How I live my faith

Because I am a busy mother I have to be pretty creative to do the things that I need to do to keep my faith strong. I often find myself praying in my heart while going about my daily tasks or while driving in the car. Because I generally don't have long periods of time for reading and studying the scriptures while my kids are awake I leave them in readily accessible places around the house where I can read them whenever I have an opportunity. When I strive to stay close to Heavenly Father he enlightens my mind helping me to find ways to be better organized so that I can always find time for gospel study.

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

Faith
The Holy Ghost is a personage of spirit who enlightens the mind and heart of men and woman leading them to all good things and testifying to them of the truth of all things. The way he communicates to us is often described as a "still small voice". Show more Show less
