Hi I'm B.

I love talking about people & relationships. I'm passionate about helping others. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, my friends call me B. I like books, talking about relationships, cupcakes, glitter, peanut butter m&ms, mugs, school supplies, scarfs, side ponies, mustaches, IKEA, painting things, & being a pseudo-vegetarian. I'm a current University senior, studying Family Studies & Substance Abuse Counseling. I'm fascinated by people, relationships, family & human behavior. I want to save the world, one family at a time!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the beauty, peace & foundation that Christ & His gospel bring into my life. Yes, I was raised in the Church, but I had to find out for myself what I believed & grew to know. For me, the Church is a way of life. It's more than what I believe, or a building I go to on Sunday. It's who I am. It's why I am who I am. It's everything.

How I live my faith

I've worked in many places within the Church. My favorite memory ever was during the summer of 2007 when I worked with the young girls of the Church. It was the best 4 months of my life & hopefully changed the girls I worked with as well. The youth of the Church are my favorite! I continue to serve within the church, in "callings" in which I serve in various positions. I try to live as Christlike a life as possible. I strive to see people as my Savior would. It's hard, but it makes life so much richer. Being Mormon & having faith in God & my Savior makes my everyday life better.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

B.
Women of the Church are amazing! We are mothers, wives, daughters, sisters & friends. Men & women are equal but different. A woman is meant to be different than a man. We are meant to be tender, loving & kind. We are meant to be a WOMAN. That's feminism. Show more Show less

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

B.
 Oh, this is my most favorite thing about the Gospel of Christ. I love love. I love human relationships & families. The fact that through eternal marriages which take place in sacred temples throughout the world, a husband & wife are "sealed" together & their future children for forever!! Not until death do you part. FOREVER. How beautiful is that! After this life our families can & will be together. That's love!! Show more Show less

What is the Law of Chastity?

B.
We believe in keeping ourselves sexually pure before marriage & in fidelity in marriage. This basically means we refrain from ANY form of sex before marriage & keep is beautiful & sacred in the bounds of marriage. This is one of the most beautiful aspects of the Gospel to me. If I love someone & myself enough to save my body & the beauty of a healthy sexual relationship for the right boundaries, it makes it all the more beautiful & special. Show more Show less
