Hi I'm Ebony!

I'm from Jackson Mississippi, Southern Bell born and raised and I am a proud Mormon!

About Me

 I am a 22 years old College Student who works with the youth girls in my branch. I love to read and write. I currently major in English/Creative Writing and if you want, you can follow me at my blogspot! I am not a mom or dad lol but I would love to be a Mother and have a Eternal Companion sometime in the future. My goal is to make it to the Celestial Kingdom to be with my Heavenly Father, while helping others along in their journeys. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon because this is the only church that did not give up on me. This is the only church that shows me the love and compassion that I lacked from all other churches previously. This is the only church that I know I can be myself. This is the ONLY church that promotes my eternal progression. The ONLY church that changed and softened my heart to the gospel. The only church that I want to do right by, live by, and bring others in. The only church that as soon as I started going, my testimony started growing and I am a new Daughter of Heavenly Father wax strong in knowing that Jesus Christ is my corner stone.

How I live my faith

 I am an active member of the church. I help with the youth girls of my branch. I teach them about the gospel and what it can do when you live by the commandments Heavenly Father give us. Our young women's program has increased in the past year because more and more girls are seeking the gospel. In our branch including myself, many of the youth girls are the ONLY members of the church. Therefore they have to be leaders with their family,with their friends, and associates. We teach them to be strong, have faith and endure to the end. We teach them to lead by example. I have seen a major change in my youth girls from the time they enter the youth program up until 18. Myself along with many others help to get girls involved, members and non-members. Any teenage girl who have lost their way we try our hardest to bring them in. I play many roles in order to be the best Adult Leader and example to my youth girls. I am Leader, Listener, Friend, Confidante, Helper, Teacher, and in some cases a second Mother. But most importantly I am an Example to my youth girls, if i can do it, you can do it to! Stand Strong in the gospel!

Are Mormons Christians?

Ebony!
 YES! I am a Christian. I believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins so that we may live again. I believe that in order to get to our Heavenly Father we must go through the son. I believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ and I am Baptized in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. In a nut-shell that is the basic belief of a Christian and I fit all the requirements. Also, with the church helping me, I strive to walk in the Footsteps of Jesus Christ. Always progressing in the gospel so that I may return to Heavenly Father. Yes, I am a Christian and a member of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It just so happens the world identify us as Mormons which is perfectly fine with me, as long as you know that we are Christians and I can testify to the fullness of the gospel! Amen!
