Hi I'm Terry

I'm thankful to the have the gospel and have joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I married later in life after experiencing the world. I lived those earlier years somewhat selfishly considering myself to be unbiased, open minded and fair. Supposing and believing that we are all created equal. And that we each entered the world the same way, were given the same things and that we each have equal opportunity.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been fascinated by the cultures, peoples and artifacts that have and do exist in South America. Ponce De Leon, the Lines of Nazca, Machu Picchu and other interesting archeological finds are curious and rather unexplainable. After meeting, observing and talking with a friend at school who answered questions regarding the origins of these peoples I expressed an interest in learning about the Book of Mormon. It was indicated that reading the Book of Mormon would explain how, when, where and why the people in South America existed. I joined the church after satisfing myself that the history contained in the Book of Mormon was sufficiently convincing. It provides and persuades one with an understanding of how God deals, interacts and concerns Himself with our well being, success and happiness. I am grateful and thankful to those who are not ashamed to admit that they are religious, God fearing, and faithful.

How I live my faith

I have derived great satifaction in helping and assisting others. There is joy and an uplift in one's soul seeing others who you have helped smile. It is a joy to receive a thank you from someone you do not necessarily know for some assistance you have rendered. We should help one another. It is not often these days to meet truly happy people. The church has provided many opportunities for me to serve others selflessly in different capacities. The church has made me who I am. I have dedicated myself in word and deed to serve the Lord. I recognize and accept that in helping others we are helped ourselves. Heavenly Father blesses us each one. I know from experience that He does and will give more to the "giver" than the "keeper".

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

The church issued "The Family a Proclaimation to the World" that explains the powers of God, our Heavenly Father, and families. A family consists of a man and a women equal in purpose, respect and significance in the sight of God. Our Heavenly Father has equal hope, destiny and love for each man and woman. He desires that each family be successful based on the eternal principle of choice and accountablity. A man and a woman are each equal in making decisions. Show more Show less
