Hi I'm Vanalorin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read, play soccer and garden. I also love music. I am a college student finishing a degree in History and I am a mom. I love good movies and to dance.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and my closeness to the LDS church has helped me overcome many difficulties and become closer to my family. My dad is a convert to the church and he has always made sure that we have the opportunity to discover if the LDS church is truly God's church. As a young girl I read the Book of Mormon many times and one day I followed the promise in the end of Moroni to pray and see if this gospel is true. I did so and I felt such peace in my heart that I knew there was no way that what I had been reading was not true. My life has truly been blessed by the gospel and I feel like I have become a stronger person because of it. I know this gospel is true and that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that he loves us. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God and that he speaks for him today.I know the Book of Mormon is true.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by working with others. Our church has a program for little kids and I have worked with them. It is fun to see the little children and how they work with each other. I also visit other women in my congregation and have made friends with those that I visit with. I also help with projects that we put on to make quilts and different items for humanitarian projects.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

 We believe like many other Christians that we need to be baptized. We believe that we can act as a proxy for those who have died. We do baptisms so that that our families can be bound together. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

We believe that the Bible is the word of God and because of that we do consider it Holy Scripture. Show more Show less
