Hi I'm MeLinda
Hello again. I was born into the religion and haven't been very active in my life. I have had many trial and tribulations the past years and growing up. Well, I have started goin to church and I am getting counseling for Post Traumatic Stress and a few other things. I am learning a lot with the Missionaries and the members of my ward. They are great people. I dont know many people here where I live but I will. I wanted to chat with others from the church to keep me on the right path. I am 40 years old and have 2 wonderful boys. I dont have custody of them, but I do see them as much as I can. I don't know what more to say but I dont want it all on display either..lol. Anyway's Many Blessings to you All!
Why I am a Mormon
My Mother and family were Mormon and I keep my faith with this religion. To me and my testimony of self assurance that this church is TRUE!! So I am coming back and hope to someday be able to do Temple work.
How has attending Church services helped you?
I notice that when I actually attend church and participate in the Blessings given to us there that my weeks seem to go a lot better. Yes, I have my down moments for I again am starting back into the religion but for the most part of the week I feel better spiritually.
In what ways have your prayers been answered?
My prayers have been answered because I have a home that is paid for by Meridian Services do to me being chronically homeless. I have had the Missionaries stop by and help me to think about my actions in life and guided me to the path of rightousness. I have my Spirit that has grown each and everyday. My counselor says I've come along way in a short time. I know it is because of the church, the people, prayers and guidance from our Father in Heaven. He knew I needed help so I could restore my spirit that had almost become shattered spiritually. I know I have kept the faith within just never acted upon it and now I am Greatful for what I have!! Thank you to All that help and guide anyone that is willing to listen and that still know that we all carry the rightousness within and who want to truly listen or at least try. Blessings!
How I live my faith
I am living my faith daily by trying to pray everyday, read my scriptures and to try my hardest to follow the path of our Savior.
