Hi I'm Rose

I grew up in the Detroit area. I love my Savior Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of four children, ages 12-21, and married to a wonderful man for 23 years. I work part-time as a substitute teacher during the school year. My interests include new technology, attending college football games, and going on cruises.

Why I am a Mormon

When I first ran into the Mormon Missionaries at a mall during college, I thought these two young men had peculiar beliefs, although I respected them for going out at their young age to teach people what they knew to be true. I was impressed at their willingness and dedication to share the gospel with me, even when I doubted what they taught. However, when they taught the Plan of Salvation and Heaventy Father's Plan for me, I had a feeling that I had heard this somewhere before. I couldn't recall when or where, but I knew deep down what was taught was true. I wanted to be baptized following Christ's example of immersion.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by raising my children to love their Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and to trust in them. I've been active in our woman's organizations, taught the youth in our church, and I support my husband in his volunteer service to the church.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Our main worship service is called sacrament meeting, and takes place in the Chapel. We welcome adults, and children of all ages. It usually consists of church hymns, prayers, and partaking of the sacrament. It is customary to have a 2-3 speakers talk about gospel principles, and how they apply to their lives. Sunday School follows and we have appropriate age level classes from 18 months to 17 years, as well as classes for adults. Another meeting follows for our Priesthood holders and male guests ages 12 and up, Young Women ages 12-17, and our ladies organization called the Relief Society. In these meetings, we learn how to serve each other, become better individuals, and strengthen our families. Show more Show less
