Hi I'm Regina

I'm a wife, mother, student, and combat veteran. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and a mother of a very active toddler. I love to learn and try to learn as much as I can. I enjoy cooking, shopping, and reading. I also love cars, running, and rough housing. I spent nine proud years serving my country in the United States Army where I worked as a Human Resources representative and as a diesel mechanic. I am currently a college student and hope to eventually become a Psychologist. I am outgoing, friendly,determined, and sometimes even lazy. I have hopes, dreams, and flaws like everyone on this earth. I am human....and I am Mormon

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but that is not why I am a Mormon. I quit going for many years so I have lived both sides of the coin. I am a Mormon because nothing else filled that void in my life, and nothing else has brought me so much happiness. Living the gospel is easy compared to carrying the weight of sin. I love God, and I know this is his gospel. THAT is why I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

I choose to live my faith in everything I do. I find that the closer I am with my Heavenly Father, the happier I am. I choose to do a little more each day and take a few more steps toward where I want to be! I have never been more satisfied and motivated for change all at the same time.

What is faith?

Regina
Faith is often thought of as a state of mind...believing in things unseen. While this is true, it is not the complete answer. Faith is an action. When someone has faith, they not only choose to believe, but they choose to act on that belief. "For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also." (JAMES 2:26) Show more Show less

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

Regina
I believe Mormon customs to be pretty traditional to most Christians. We celebrate Christmas, Easter, and most other American holidays. We exchange gifts, visit family, eat turkey, dye easter eggs, go trick-or-treating, and more. Mormons try to treat our body's as "temples". This means we live healthy life-styles with a balanced diet and exercise. We choose not to drink, smoke, or do drugs because these are all harmful to our body. We also believe in dressing modesty to keep that which is sacred, sacred. This does not mean that Mormons are not stylish, or that they cannot keep up with many of the latest trends. We shop at normal stores and where very normal clothes such as shorts, t-shirts, and jeans. We are just careful not to expose to much skin. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Regina
You better believe it! =) A Christian is a follower of Christ. We accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and our Redeemer. We also believe in and love the Bible as other Christians do. Show more Show less

What is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' attitude regarding homosexuality and same sex marriage?

Regina
Our church believes that families were meant to have a mother AND a father who were properly wed. Because of that, we do not promote the practice of homosexuality because it tampers with the structure of a family. This does not mean that we hate homosexuals or that we condemn them. We are ALL children of our Heavenly Father and he wants us all to come on to him and to live his word. To best reference for our beliefs of a family is "A Proclamation to the World."
