Hi I'm Missy

I'm a happy wife and mom still learning how to be both. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read, craft, cook & be active. I love learning new things, whether it's a new skill or an obscure fact. I love to spend my days with my family and getting all the joy I can out of life. Life is a bit crazy sometimes, but it's always an adventure.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in church, but have come to know for myself of the truthfulness of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I read, I asked & I was given a powerful answer. I'm a Mormon because I know God loves me, that Christ is my Savior. I'm a Mormon because being one makes me happy, helps me live a more full life, & helps me understand my purpose.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life so that I'm always an example of my faith and the Savior. I serve in a presidency that presides over the girls aged 12-18 years old in our congregation - the Young Women organization. I try to help the girls solidify their testimonies in Christ and realize their worth as daughters of God. I help teach them skills that will help them as they grow and become women and leaders in their families and communities. I also teach on a gospel principle during our Sunday meetings and help the girls plan and implement weekly activities. In my family I live my faith by praying and by reading & studying the scriptures. By teaching my daughter about Jesus Christ & His love for her.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is a personal spiritual witness given to a person through the Holy Ghost. It is based on the knowledge that God lives and loves us that Jesus Christ lives & provided the Atonement for us that Joseph Smith is a prophet and was called to restore Jesus Christ's church to the earth and that we have a living prophet who leads us today and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored church on earth today. For some the witness may come over time, "precept upon precept." For others it is a single distinguishable moment. Everyone is entitled to a witness for themselves. They only need pray and ask with a real intent. I know, without a doubt, that these things are true. I prayed and asked and the Holy Ghost gave me a sure, undeniable answer. Show more Show less
