Hi I'm Val

Hi, my name is Val. I'm from Syracuse,NY and I'm a Mormon

About Me

 I love art and crafts, animals, nature . I have 5 adult children and 10 grandchildren. I have a loving spouse whom I am looking forward getting sealed to for time and eternity!

Why I am a Mormon

 My life has never been more peaceful and happy as when I've been active in church! I've had a rocky past but the gospel has never lost track of me . I've been reactive since 2005 and my faith has grown more than ever.

How I live my faith

 I am a visiting teacher, cub scout assistant and ward missionary. I love my callings and have always wanted to be a missionary but had missed my chance or thought so.

What is being a Mormon like?

Val
Being a member of the church is wonderful. It's peaceful, and a feeling of security and hope . It's the true love of God and his followers! Show more Show less

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Val
Some people seem to think that we worship Joseph Smith. We acknowledge him as a prophet of God, just as Abraham, Moses, and other prophets of the past. We only worship God our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. Some people think we believe the Book of Mormon is our Bible. It is not. We have the King James bible The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ that goes along with it. It tells about the people that existed the this country that Christ visited after his resirection. Nothing about our religion is secret . We have temple ordinances which are sacred just as temples were back in ancient times. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Val
So that our family members that have gone on before us can learn the gospel and be sealed to us for time and eternity. Show more Show less
