Hi I'm Heather Sundblom.

I'm a college student of English and theater. I love people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a college student studying English Education and Creative Writing and minoring in Theater. Education has always been a huge part of my life and it is extremely important to me. That is why I plan on being a High School English teacher. I had the opportunity to go to China and teach English to children. It was one of the best experiences of my life. I absolutely loved traveling and learning about a new culture.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family of the mormon religion so it's always been a part of my life. But, when I was in high school, I really questioned my beliefs and who I was. As I prayed to find my answers, I found that I already had the answers. I already knew that I am a daughter of God, that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, that my brother, Jesus Christ atoned for my sins so that I could return to my Heavenly Father's presence regardless of my imperfections. That knowledge continues to give me strength everyday, especially on those days when everything seems to be going wrong.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. Jesus Christ was the ultimate example, and he served people every moment that he possibly could. I try to do the same. I went to China as a volunteer to teach English, I tutor at a middle school, I give people something as little as a smile or saying hi to brighten their day. In trying to be like Christ I learn as much as I can about him and his teachings. I go to institute where I learn of him and strengthen my faith. I also go to church every week and get to learn even more from wonderful people.

Are Mormons Christians?

Heather Sundblom.
Yes. Mormons are Christians. Our official church name is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is Christ's church on the earth today. The only reason we are called Mormons is because of the Book of Mormon, which is another testament of Jesus Christ. Mormon was a prophet of the Lord, who compiled records of an ancient people who also believed in Christ. Show more Show less
