Hi I'm Angie

I'm a Mormon, but have also been caught as a southerner, a newly-wed, an RN, and the list goes on...

About Me

I'm simple. I love, I cry, I serve and am served. I enjoy volunteering in the community, learning, traveling and meeting new people. I love hearing new ideas, both similar and different to my own. Food and music are two of my favorite things and am convinced it's a miracle when two people are able to come together over them. I believe in universal things as well as the microscopic. I also believe in God and his delicate and detailed place in my life. While I have much yet to discover and understand I have much to give and am happiest when I am free to love and be myself with those around me.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though my parents raised me as a Mormon, I always wanted to know for myself if it was really true and if it was for me. As a teenager I read the Book of Mormon and received a spiritual witness that it was God's word. It has been a long journey of conversion from a worldly woman to a holy person since then--and it will always be as I live to better my life. However, I know Jesus Christ is my Savior and true happiness comes from obeying his commandments. I also know that we have living prophets today, comparable to Moses, Noah, and Peter, and that their counsel is from God and has made a tremendous difference in my life. Getting baptized to receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost was the best decision I ever made and has led me to do other things that I know are pleasing to God.

How I live my faith

Two years after starting college, I decided that I wanted to serve a mission. My motivation was the forgiveness and mercy I felt God had shown me through out my life. I lived in Panama for 18 months serving and came back to finish college as a registered nurse. Now I live in Raleigh, NC with my new husband, Edward. We are learning that as we apply the principles of the gospel to our marriage, we are not only growing closer to God, but also each other. We attend the temple regularly and find it blesses are marriage with peace and the assurance that we can be together forever, even after this life. I try to live my faith every day by being a Christian in thought, word and deed--by forgiving others, serving, and thinking good of people and the world around me.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

As a nurse in the Intensive Care Unit, I take care of families and their loved ones who are very sick and often pass away. The doctrine of life after death has brought me much peace and understanding about how important life is today. Even though our physical body ends on this earth, our spiritual body that God gave each of his children, continues and lives on. The gospel teaches us what we can do to prepare to be in a joyful state with our families after this existence. No family is perfect but through Jesus Christ, we can improve our situation and have hope for a better life. Like our birth, death is an important part of our progression back to living with God.
