Hi I'm Frederike

I love life. I love my family, friends and my saviour! And I love to be a Mormon -

About Me

I am the oldest of six children. My family means absolute everything to me. I grew up on a farm in a small town in Germany. My parents provided us with a beautiful home where my siblings and I experienced a great childhood. We loved working on the farm together, especially in summer during harvest time. Through that I also learned to work hard all day long and got a feeling for what it´s like to sit down at the end of the day looking on what you have accomplished and the joy that comes with it :-) I also served a mission for my country which I just loved. There I saw the same pattern like working on our farm. If you worked hard enough you can sit down at night and enjoy about what you have accomplished. Serving a mission wasn´t a vacation but I do not regret any minute. Since I grew up the way I did, I am spoiled with space! Wide open spaces and fields. Northern Germany is one of the most beautiful parts of this world. I truly enjoy nature and all that comes with it.

Why I am a Mormon

I had the privilige to be brought up with the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my family. My mother is a faithful member of this church and her example helped me to see the joy and hope the Plan of our Heavenly Father brings to us. Nevertheless I had to find out for myself if the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ are true and if there really is a loving God who watches over us. I found out about the truthfulness of this Church through earnest prayer, study of the scriptures and actually living the Gospel. Heavenly Father did answer my prayers and I know that this Church is of His son. There is no doubt about it. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and all what it brings to my life.

How I live my faith

Part of being an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Sainst is to go to church meetings each sunday. We call the unit we belong to a ward. In the ward I am attending sundays I have the privilege to work with the young girls age 12-17. During the week we have a lot of fun activities like dancing, painting, acting and all sorts of things. And on sunday we talk and learn about the Saviour and His church. I love working with the youth! It is also very uplifting to go to church each sunday. I live my faith by trying to honour Jesus Christ become more like Him each day by applying His teachings in my daily life. Life isn´t easy but I just try to take one step at a time and learn as much as I can while here on earth.
