Hi I'm Blanche

I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday-Day Saints. I prefer to be known as LDS, although we are called Mormons. Thx

About Me

Hi, my name is Blanche. I am a nanny and am a regular church goer. I live in a small town than hardly any one has hurd of and enjoy most is spending time with family and friends, working with children, and going to the temple. I am single and have graduated with my BBA. The other things that I like to do is crafts, needle work, playing games, and walking.

Why I am a Mormon

I came from a broken family although my parents were not divorced. My dad had his first family and us; it was not easy growing up because most of them where not religous. My mom took us and we went, which in the end was one of the reasons that I am still a member. Also like every convert I believe that every member has to be converted within themselves or they will fall away. How I become converted was at different times thoughout my life; first it started with kinowing which church was true, because I have been to several which all seemed the same, so I prayed to know it was true like Joseph Smith. But I did not see any great vision or dream instead it was through someone elses testamony that I came to know it was true. Second I wanted to know that the Book of Mormon was true because I did not truly believe it was and I heard many people trying to prove it was not. So again I prayed and prayed and prayed finaly the prophet taught us in conference that through fathful study and with open hearts and minds we shall know the truth of all things. So what I did was take his chalange of reading the Book of Mormon and testing his words; I read it and when finished I prayed to know it was true. I knew with out a shadow of a doubt that both are true. Lastly throughout the rest of my life I have listend to my leaders words and if there were ever a doubt I took it to the Lord; studing it out with an open heart and mind and listend for the answer from the Holy Ghost. I know that this church is true and was founded by Jesus Christ and was restored through Joseph Smith and this is the only church on the earth that has all of the keys of the first chruch started by Jesus, which was taken from the earth. I also know that the Book of Mormon is true and that if you ever have a doubt about anything you should study it out whith an open heart and mind then ask the Lord listing with faith that he will give you the answer to your questions. I know this to be true with my whole heart.

How I live my faith

I don't have a calling in my ward yet but I use to teach the little children and loved it. Doing that gave me experiance for the job I have now as a nanny. As I said before I enjoy going to the temple either to just walk around the grounds or to go inside. I grew up with every one related to me and those that were not they became close friends and we called them Uncle and Aunt or Mom and Dad. That is one thing that I love about my church is everyone is family and if you just ask they are right there like your sister, brother, aunt, uncle, grandparents, or parents. When I have to work on Sunday I enjoy taking my work with me; what I mean by this is I take the children that I take care of with me to church. Other than that I go visit people with my mom and when needed we volinteer our time and energy to help us others.
