Hi I'm Deloresdd

I have raised 4 kids. I have lived in China. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married, and the mother of 4 children. I served as a missionary for the church in the Taiwan, Taipei mission before I was married. I enjoy playing the piano, doing crafts, and walking my large airedale terrier. I love to talk to others about my beliefs!

Why I am a Mormon

 In recent years I have discussed religion with many people of different faiths. I had already prayed to God as a young woman to know if this church were His church, and received an answer that it was. But as I have talked with others about religion, I see more and more that all of the puzzle pieces fit together with this restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I have felt God's guidance confirming to me that this is His church. 

How I live my faith

For me, living my faith is a constant effort. I am trying to learn to be more Christlike, and to develop attributes that will bless the lives of others.  I am currently serving as the Relief Society president in our congregation. In this position, I have the opportunity to work with the welfare program of the church to help those in need. I also oversee the Sunday instruction of the women. In addition, we activities to help us to grow and develop as women. I am blessed to be able to have this chance to serve and grow.

What is the Relief Society?

 Relief Society is the largest women's organization in the world. It was organized to help provide relief and charitable service for those in need. In addition, as a society we spend time studying the gospel of Jesus Christ, and learning skills to help us be better mothers and wives. Show more Show less

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

The term cult refers to a controlling organization that is authoritarian and exploitive. When others use this term to describe our church, it is because they do not understand what we believe, and do not know that we do not fit this description. Members in our church are not coerced or "brain-washed". I believe this term is used incorrectly by people who do not understand the true meaning of "cult". My experience in teaching others about my beliefs is that after I have taught them, they have changed their opinion, and have seen that we truly are believers and followers of Jesus Christ, and are normal functioning members of society.  Show more Show less
