Hi I'm Fontella

I am a very proud daughter of God, wife, mother, and member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful man Howard D. Young, and we have 4 beautiful children, 3 girls (Ari, Darci, Tatianna and 1 boy Terrell. I'm also blessed to be a part of the adopt a solider program when we lived in Colorado and there we met, Steven B. Brooks who has been a part of our family since 1997. I am blessed to have many other people I love dearly in my life. But my grandsons Braylon (5), Braxton (1) and my niece Kenzie(4) and nephews Ronan (5),Kian (3) and Logan(1) fill my days with much joy and happiness regularly.. One way I get to hang our with my great neighbors is to be involved with our community projects, which I also enjoy doing.

Why I am a Mormon

My goal is to be closer to God, you do that through Jesus and I feel I am succeeding by being a part of his church restored to the earth today.

How I live my faith

Our churh believes heavily in service. I happily accept all callings in the church and service projects in our community that our Bishop has been inspired to entrust us with. 

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon only differs from the Bible, because its God's love at work on the American continent, the prophets have different names, and these prophets were taught after Jesus died on the cross, which he speaks about in the New testament but are taught the same as the prophets in the Old and New testaments. Joseph Smith didn't just go pick up the plates from the store. An angel was sent to tell him where to find them and how to read them. Joseph was never without God's assistance while doing as God had asked of him in bringing forth this knowledge to the world.  Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe happens after we die?

We believe there's life after death. I believe that the words in the Scriptures in the book of Matthew as well as the book of Mormon are true and that our choices here will help to choose what life will be like for us in the after life. I believe that the words of the Lords prayer in Matthew, kind of tell us what to expect" Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven."
