Hi I'm Elaine

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 61 year old white female.Currently I am retired

Why I am a Mormon

I became a mormon because I knew when the missionaries told me about the church that it was the true church and the one I had been searching for most of my life. I was brought up in the lutheran church but somehow I never felt the teachings of this church were valid so I stopped going when I was a teenager. After this I went to verious other churches but again I did not feel any of them were what I was looking for. Then in 1974 I met the missionaries of this church and I knew when they told me the true church had been restored to the earth and that it was The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints I was interested. They told me about Joseph Smith and gave me a Book Of Mormon to read which I did. They told me to pray and ask if the book was really true and if the answer I got was yes I would feel a warm kind of burning feeling in my chest . I prayed and asked not really expecting an answer but the very second after I finished my prayer I felt the warm burning in my heart and so I knew that this church and everything the missionaries had told me was true. I also knew absolutly positivly that I had finally found the church I had been searching for for most of my life
