Hi I'm Casey.

I am a wife. I am an accountant. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a wife to sweet and amazing husband! I love spending time with my family and strengthening the relationships and bonds that keep us close. I love holidays and all the yummy food that surrounds those events. I love to bake, scrapbook and travel. I studied accounting in school and work in public accounting as an auditor.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know I am a daughter of God. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know that families can be together forever. And, I know that I want to be with my family forever. I joined the church when I was 19 years old. I did not grow up in a religious home. My parents gave both my brother and I Bible's when we were young, but never read them with us or taught from them. In my heart I always knew there was something larger than me out there. Someone that was looking over me and protecting me. I knew there had to be an ultimate purpose to this life - but what it was, I was not yet sure. I questioned many things throughout my life - 'Why did people in the Bible have prophets, but we do not now? What is going to happen to those that never learn about God?' - but never received clear answers to my questions. That is, until I met with the Mormon missionaries. After my first discussion with the missionaries, I had clear answers to all of my life-long questions. I felt like life had a purpose. After meeting with the missionaries for a couple of months, I was baptized. During those months of meeting with the Mormon missionaries, I was able to fully understand the meaning of life. I gained a testimony, a real testimony for myself, that I have a father in Heaven and that he loves me. Heavenly Father also loves all my earthly brothers and sisters and has sent prophets and apostles to us in these days to help guide us. I knew that Jesus Christ restored His church through a young boy to what it is on earth today. I knew those things were true and couldn't deny them. That is why I am Mormon.

How I live my faith

I do my best each day to follow my Saviors example and teachings each day. One of the best ways to show what you know is to live it. I know that my Savior is my Redeemer. I know that I want to be with my family forever. I know that I am a daughter of Heavenly Father. Faith is excerised by actions.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Casey.
Families are an essential part of Heavenly Father's plan. He sent each of us down to this earth and placed in family units. In these family units, families are to build relationships and bonds to carry them through their lives. Why would Heavenly Father place each of us in families, creating these relationships and then separate us when we die to reside in Heaven alone? This is the question I would ask myself before I became a Mormon. The answer is, He wouldn't. Heavenly Father wants each of us to build strong relationships with our families because he has promised us that there is way we can be together as families forever. Families are so important to Mormons because we want to be happy families in the eternities. Show more Show less

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

Casey.
Mormon Church services are very similar to other church services. The whole congregation meets together for an hour at the very beginning of the meeting. There we will partake in what is called the Sacrament, which is where participants partake of bread and drink water in remembrance of Jesus Christ. During the meeting, those attending will sing hymns together and listen to speakers from the congregation speak on topics of the church. Following the meeting members will meet together for Sunday School to read from the scriptures and discuss doctrine for one hour and then meet separately as women and men for another hour of doctrine discussion. Visitors are welcome any Sunday for all church services. Members would love to share the sweet message of our Savior Jesus Christ to any new visitor. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Casey.
You can know Mormonism is true by praying to your Father in Heaven in the name of Jesus Christ to know for yourself that it is true. If you pray to Him with a sincere heart, willing to act upon any answer given to you, you will indeed receive an answer. Heavenly Father will manifest it onto you through the Holy Ghost.
