Hi I'm Lorraine Akemann

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a hairstylist, a mother of 4 beautiful children and 1 stepson, I have 4 beautiful grandchildren and an amazing husband!!!! I love my family with all my heart and live to help them be sucessful and productive good loving people!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised LDS and had fallen away from the church, I was a fence sitter, so to speak... I have come to the realization that following my heavenly fathers commandments and doing what is right is really not as hard as I thought it was. Through sincere prayer and desperation, my prayers were and will be answered and also through faith. I've learned that the things my parents have taught my were from heavenly father and they love me and want what is best for me. I love this church and my heavenly father with all my heart! It only brings light and happiness into this sad dark world... and gives hope, that each of us need!!!!If we ask, he will bless all of us! :)

How I live my faith

I try to serve my fellow man every opportunity I have. I love to listen and help people. I've started to attend meetings again after being stubborn and not wanting to sacrifice my time. Service is so rewarding I love it!

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Lorraine Akemann
My personal testimony Is like a very strong burning, yet a good burning in my heart, that I believe is the holy spirit testifying to me of truths, whenever I talk about the gospel of Jesus Christ or pray or teach my children. I know that this is Christs true church and that it was restored by Joseph Smith when the Lord knew it was time for us to recieve it.It brings Eternal happiness, all we have to do is follow the commandments and Love our fellow man, and be our best everyday! I know that my father in heaven loves me and gave his only son for me, so that I might return to live with him again after this life, and have eternal life with my family! I wouldn't want it any other way! I know Joseph Smith was chosen to restore the gospel here on earth, and that we have the only true prophet here leading us today. Show more Show less
