Hi I'm Dena

and I am proud to be a Mormon!

About Me

 Hi, my name is Dena and this is my husband Mark. I work as a LPN in MN. We love hiking, fishing and camping. Here we are hiking in the mountains of SC, two summers ago. We do alot of primitive camping in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. I could bore you for hours with pictures of pristine sunrises in the wilderness, fish, and sunburns! 

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon because I found the fullness of the gospel with the LDS church. I had always had questions and never seemed to find the answer. Athough I loved the churches that I belonged to, I always felt there was something missing. When I went to the LDS church for the first time I knew that I had found those answers. I remember clearly and undoubtedly feeling the Spirit of the Lord as I listened to those talks. It was not what I heard, but what I felt as I listened. I felt the Spirit testify to me of the truthfulness and completeness of what was being said. I have never regretted the decision I made to become a member of this church. I have been so richly blessed, and I have recieved time and again assurances that I indeed made the right choice.

How I live my faith

 I love being a member of my church. I actually look foward to going to church on Sunday! All the members of my church are my family. I know how cliche that sounds, but they really are my brothers and sisters. If I have a problem, I go to them. If I have a joy to share, they are who I share it with. I love them and pray for them, and I know they do the same for me. I miss my mother and father, who live far away, but I am not homesick, because I live in a town with tons of family members, my church family members. I am one of the leaders of a women's group in our church. We enjoy serving our ward members as well as our community. For instance, if one of our church members becomes ill, has a baby or is hurt we deliver meals to the family. We all pull together, split the responsibilities among several ladies, and the meals are delivered. It is such as awesome blessing to be able to share the burden with someone when they are struggling. The smile of the receiving family, not having to worry about the simple task of preparing a meal, is gratifying. The Savior said, "When you do it unto the least of these my brethren you have done it unto me." This is how I live my faith.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Dena
 Yes, a husband and wife can be together forever, not just "Until death do us part." My husband and I were married, the same way most others are these days. We chose to go to the temple on our first anniversary, where we were sealed together for time and eternity. I no longer dread the time when one of us passes. I know that we will be together again. I have eternity to enjoy with him. Show more Show less

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Dena
 Absolutely!! Just as the New Testament is another testament of Jesus Christ, so is the Book of Mormon. It is simply another group of people and their accounts of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. All the teachings in the Book of Mormon echo those of the standard works. Show more Show less
