Hi I'm hermana harding

I drive10-wheeler potato trucks. I'm a boater, golfer, world traveler, sunbather, I love to wax men's noses! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Nothing can compare to feeling the love of my Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I am currently serving a mission in Minnesota speaking Spanish. Words can not express what my mission means to me. I have learned so much from the people here and helping others find faith in their Savior Jesus Christ. Growing up in a small town, where everyone around me was Mormon. This mission life is a new adventure for me. I never had to stick up or stand up for what I believed, since everyone around me was also LDS. I am so grateful for the chance I have, every day to spread this Gospel and share my testimony with others. Whether it be on their doorstep, in their Pizza parlor, while cutting their grass in a skirt, or helping them change their tire rods in -20 degrees on a snowy road, I love sharing what means the most to me, with them. I have found the best way to share what means the most to me is through service. "When you are in the service of your fellowmen, you are in the service of your God." Mosiah 2:19 I have set aside my personal life, my medical spa career, leaving home the greatest friends, to come and dedicate my life for the next 18 months. I have been to the top of the Andes mountains, ontop of the tallest building in the world, worked for a world famous chef... yet NOTHING can compair or bring the happiness into my heart as the restored church of Jesus Christ. I love this Gospel with all my heart! It is an honor to be a walking represenative of my Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found for myself that the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is once again on the earth. Growing up in a home where the Gospel was taught on a daily basis, I had to find out for myself if the church was true. I had 3 older brothers who had served missions in various parts of the world, and I wanted to follow their example. But, I had to know for myself the things I would go out and share with hundreds of others, that they were true. Prayer has always been a very important thing for me. I don't have a remarkable story of feeling the church was true right after I prayed. But it was through doing the small and simple things, going to church, reading the Book of Mormon, serving others, and living the commandments. It was through those things, that time after the time, the Holy Ghost pierced my heart time after time again, that the things I had been taught all growing up were true, and that the things I was about to go share with others, were true as well. I know that through the Prophet Joseph Smith, the saving ordanaces of the Priesthood were restored back on the earth, and that through Joseph Smith, we now have the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ on the earth. That teaches us the things we need to do in this life, in order to live with our Heavenly Father again. I know with all my heart Joseph Smith saw our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ, and that he translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God. I am a Mormon because of they way I feel when I am living the commandments and teachings of the Gosepl. There have been times in my life, when I wasn't "fully" living the teachings, and I can testify of the significant difference in my life. I love feeling the Spirit, the way my Heavenly Father communicates to me. I know that it is only through living my life righteously, that I can have this eternal happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by presently serving an 18 month mission in Minnesota Spanish speaking. Words can never explain what my mission means to me. There is no greater joy, than sharing the Lord's teachings and blessings to the people here, and especially the Hispanics. I love being an instrament in the Lord's hand and being able to witness people (children of God) make changes in their lives, and come closer to their Savior. This Gospel means everything to me, and I know I wouldn't be where I am today without it and the powerful gift of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. It is the least I can do, to somewhat give back to my Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ, all the thousands of blessings He has blessed me with over my life. There truly is no greater joy, than serving others. Whenever I have having a down day, or thinking negatively... I know I haven't served someone enough. I look forward each day, to be able to put a smile on someone's face, and make them feel like the special child of God they truly are.
