Hi I'm Trish

and I'm a convert of the church of jesus christ of latter day saints. I'm mormon.

About Me

I'm a navy wife and mother of three daughter's. I currentely stay home with my children and enjoy crafts, I have been a mormon now for almost ten years and it has been a blessing in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because i attended many other churches before joining this church and I always felt like something was missing in my life. When I joined the mormon church, it was everything I was looking for. It felt right and it was the missing piece to the puzzle I was looking for. I have been blessed from joining this church. I have been able to meet my husband through the church and have had the oppertunity to be with him and my children for all time and eturnity.

How I live my faith

I participate in this church a lot. I work with 8 year old boys and girls on sunday by teaching them stories of the bible and of our church. I also work with the 8-11 year old young girls on tuesday nights. I tech them how them the gosspel and things that are important as a young girl growing up. Besides being busy within the church, I also am very active outside the church. I am a 4-H leader with my daughters 4-H club and I also participate with the navy for my husbands job in the navy for his command. The church as taught me how to be a good citizen by giving back and helping people as much as possible.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Trish
There is no secrets with the temple for the mormons but its a sacred place that only mormons are allowed to go to because in order to go inside the temple you need something called a recommend. With this recommend, you go and have a an interview with the bishop to make sure that you have lived your life worthy to go to the temple. Besides having a recommend, you must be a member in order to go inside the temple. The temples are very sacred and a holy place. But most temples have what are called "visitor centers" that anyone can go to. While inside the temple, members learn more about the scriptures and why we are here on earth. Show more Show less
