Hi I'm Debra

"I grew up in Savannah, Ga. I'm a Life Coach. And I'm a Mormon".

About Me

I am the mother of 7 grown children and 9 granchildren. I'm singe at present. I'm a life coach and work with a holistic LDS Chiropractor. I love to make crafts and enjoy sewing for myself and family. I love to learn all I can about natural health and healing the emotions. I enjoy hiking, garage sales, thrift store and consignment shopping. I also love traveling to see new and exciting places. I love going to the beach and visiting museums and gardens. Family get-togethers are the most important. I love my calling in church working with the children. I attended the temple often and love serving others.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a personal testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that through Joseph Smith, the Lord restored His church in it's fullness. I know that through living and accepting the ordinances of the gospel I can return to live with my heavenly father. It is His plan of happiness for all of His children. I love the gospel with all my heart because I know who I am, a daughter of God, and why I am here on earth, to gain experience and become like the Savior. I have received many blessings in my life and have seen many miracles as a result of my faith in Jesus Christ and obediance to His commandments. I am thankful for the priesthood of God given to worthy men (the power to act in Gods name) that blesses my life. I am blessed to have received the sealing ordinances of the temple that binds my family together for eternity if we live worthy of it. Grateful to be able to provide these blessings for family members who never had an opportunity to receive these blessings while here upon the earth. These blessings and many more, are the reason why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I attend all my church meetings every Sunday. I attend the temple a least once a month. I read from the scriptures and other religious books on a daily basis, usually in the morning. I sincerely ask God to help me be a better disiple by letting go of my will and repenting of my sins throughout the day. I strive daily to obey the commandments of God and actively follow inspiration I receive from God. I believe that God gave us laws and commandments not to restrict and limit us, but to bless our lives and bring us closer to Him. I have served in my church as a teacher to the children, teens and adults over the last 33 yrs. I visit 3 other sisters from my ward once a month to share a spiritual message and provide any help they may be in need of as I am able to assist with. I encourage my sisters to develop a close relationship with the Savior. I know that only He can truly heal us and strenghten us in our weaknesses.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Doing what He ask of us and seeing the blessings He promises. Our actions prove our faith in Him. Show more Show less

How does the Church finance its operations?

Through generous donations of the members of the church. A 10% of all our income is donated once a month. We have no paid ministry in our church. All who serve do it out of a love of God. We believe sacrifice brings forth blessings from heaven. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is a personal conviction or knowledge about something. Usually an experience of faith and or miracles we have had or a close family member or friend of ours has had as they live the gospel and see Gods hand in their lives. It comes from feeling good about something, that it's right or true. Like; I have a personal testimony of fasting because I've fasted several times and I know for myself it brings me closer to God. I felt an increase of the love He has for me, I receive answers to questions. I've seen a change in circumstances or attitude in myself and others around me. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

They share the basic doctrines of the gospel. How it has been restored to earth in the latter-days. Why we have prophets and how we can receive personal revelations from God to know the truth of all things. Show more Show less
