Hi I'm Caldeen

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in a small midwest town, where we have alot of members of the church. It is very important to be a good example. I know everyone is watching me. I am married with two grown children. I do genealogy for a living and enjoy searching family histories for others. I love to watch birds outside my window, and I love growing flowers to bring in the humming birds.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in Idaho near members of the church and I knew alot about the church. I went to parties and conferences throughout the years with them. I was also a fan of the Osmond Brothers and they were a major example to me. When I graduated from high school, I ended up dating a guy with bad standards, we ended up engaged to be married. Lucky for me, he dumped me. I thought to myself, I need to find a church with good guys in it. "the LDS" church has good guys in it. I had also been going to alot of different churchs trying to find one that answered the questions in my life... where did I come from ? why am I here none of the other churchs could answer my questions. I went to a member of the Mormon church and asked him... " I need scriptures in the Bible that tell me where I came from. He started taking me to church firesides and I soon had the missionaries teaching me and one of my friends. My girl friend and I both were baptised on the same day in 1977 and it was the best thing I ever did. I have read the complete Bible and the Book of Mormon, they support each other. They are both a witness of Jesus Christ. He lives and loves us. I prayed to know for myself about Joseph Smith and the restored church. I know it is true. I know for a fact that Joseph Smith saw the Father and the Son, I know Joseph Smith restored the true Church of Jesus Christ on the earth. I know that the Priesthood is the power of God on the earth. I love the church and am so glad I was baptised. I was married in the temple and will be with my husband beyond death. We will be an eternal family.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good example. I am friendly, thoughtful and helpful to those around me. I try to love everyone and support them whatever church they belong to. I try to respect everyone in their beliefs. If someone wants to know more about my church I will share with them, but I try hard not to force my beliefs onto others.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

We honor Joseph Smith as a Prophet of our church. We like all other Christians worship Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
