Hi I'm Debbie

I'm a runner and an artist. I'm a mom. I'm a Mornon.

About Me

 I love to read and be outside. I also love to create art pieces it helps me to be able to relax and stay cheerful. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up in an LDS family, but have really felt what it means to be converted to the gospel over the last few years. As a teenager I enjoyed memorizing scriptures and attending church meetings. It always felt like "home" to me. As I've continued to learn and grow, I've been able to have experiences that have taught me the practical applications for the truths I had always studied. Life is really busy for me and it doesn't take a whole lot for me to feel worn down and discouraged. The gospel helps me to stay focussed on the possitive things in my life and to appreciate the beauty around me. It also gives me hope that "this too shall pass" and that everything will turn out right in the end. It provides perspective that keeps me anchored to the rights thoughts and feelings. 

How I live my faith

 Right now, I teach the women in our church. This opportunity has really helped me to study better and to keep my thoughts centered on the Savior. I've also felt great peace in teaching these things in my own family.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Debbie
 I feel that a person comes to recognize the Lord's voice through regular and sincere scripture study. When I was younger someone told me that when you want to speak to the Lord, you pray, and when you want to hear His answers, you read the scriptures. I feel comforted as I read and study. Being familiar with the scriptures can also help when I'm am facing difficult decisions or temptations. It's easy to think that I'm the only one who has ever felt this way, or who has faced a particular difficulty however, when I open the scriptures I find that I am not alone. Not ever.
