Hi I'm Letitia

I grew up in Idaho. I'm a stay at home mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have four children. I have always stayed home with them. I love doing things with my family. I love the out-doors. I play the piano and love to sing. I love to try new recipes. I like to be at home, and enjoy getting to know people!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon family. I was one of 8 children. I always believed everything I was taught, and had several experiences in my life that confirmed my beliefs. When I was in college, I never had any reason to doubt what I had believed, but I wanted to know from God, for myself, if what I believed was true. I know for myself, that I am a memeber of Christ's only true church on the Earth today. I find so much joy in everyday life, and can replace fear and doubt with love and faith. I am thankful that I was able to grow up in a loving home with the gospel and had the guidance to avoid many evils of the world that saved me from much sorrow and sin. I am most thankful for the Savior and the atonement. I am far from perfect, and I know that it is only through Him that I can be forgiven, and comforted and return to live with my Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

I work with the youth in our church. Young Women ages 12-18. I teach them lessons on Sundays and help them plan and carry out activities once a week. I also visit other women in the church over the age of 18 and bring them a spiritual message once a month, and make sure I can be there for them if they are in need. I am a stay at home mother and wife. I feel that raising and teaching my family is the greatest calling I have in my life and it takes priority over other things. We have a familiy night every Monday where we teach our children gospel principles and sing and play games together and just enjoy time as a family. We always try to eat dinner together and We have family prayer and Scripture study as a family daily and we strive to serve others around us both in our neighborhood, church and community. I play the piano and organ and sing, and I like to use my talents to bless the lives of others when ever possible.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Letitia
 The only way you can know if Mormonism is true, is to "Ask God" yourself. We have missionaries that dedicate years of their life to go out into the World and share with others the Gospel of Jesus Christ that will bless lives and families. But they are not there to Convince you that the church is true, they are there to teach the "good News" of the gospel and to answer any questions you may have as you learn, read and study and find out for yourself by the spirit of the Holy Ghost. If you have a real desire to know if this is Christ's true church upon the earth, "Ask God" with a sincere heart, having Faith and he will make it known unto you. Show more Show less

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

Letitia
As a member of the Mormon church, we are much like the rest of the world. We celebrate Christmas, Easter, Halloween and other holidays according to the Country we live in. We try not to be casual in our dress for church and women will generally wear modest skirts or dresses and men will usually wear dress pants shirts and ties and some will wear suits. We have conservative values, so we don't drink alchol, tea or coffee, smoke, or do drugs. We dress like the rest of the world, wearing jeans, t-shirts, etc... however we are modest in our dress and grooming and avoid wearing clothes that are too revealing, short or low-cut. We do not swear and although we watch movies like everyone else, we avoid Rated "R" movies and movies that we feel have too much swearing, violence or sexual content.  We are very family oriented, so we get together often as families to do fun activities, sports and other recrational activities and church dinners and holiday parties. We believe in Jesus Christ, yet we do not wear Crosses. We believe Christ "Lives" and celebrate his life by striving to be examples of Christ and be charitable and serve others. Show more Show less

Who are the Mormons?

Letitia
Mormons are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. They get the nick-name "Mormon" because of the church's belief in the Book of Mormon. (Ancient scripture revealed to and recorded by prophets in the America's during the same time the Bible was being written in the Old World). Mormons are Christians! We believe in the Bible and that God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are 3 separate beings. Jesus Christ is central to our doctrine. We believe in Revelation and have living Prophets and Apostles on the Earth today that Continue to reveal God's will to us. Show more Show less
