Hi I'm Tina

I am 48 years old and joined the church on January 22, 2011.

About Me

I am a wife and mother of two sons one who just got married and the other who is finishing up college. I am a recent convert to the church and I have never felt so complete as a wife, mother, sister and friend. I love studying the scriptures and spending time with my husband and my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I found the truth and answers to my questions. I am Christian and a believer in Jesus Christ the Only Begotten Son of God. He is the way and the only way back to our Heavenly Father and Eternal Life. I was searching for the truth and the power to truly overcome and repent from my sins. I wanted Understanding and clarity that there was more in this life and the life to come. That I could truly be happy in this life. How could I overcome all the warnings written by John in the letters to the churches in the book of Revelations? These words continually went through my mind " He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches. He who overcomes I will grant to.......... But how could I overcome myself and the things I did and said? I never seemed to get beyond one day and then I was back to the same habits feeling defeated, ashamed of my lack of respect for the grace, mercy and forgiveness I was given the day before. How could I repent and really mean it, do it, believe it was possible? I always felt there was something missing in my life and I could not find a church that made me a better person. How could I overcome things about myself that I did not like. The Book of Mormon was the answer to all my questions. The Book of Mormon completed the Bible and was the final piece of my puzzel. I finally found the truth, the truth I had always been looking for. I always had the gift of grace, but I never had the gift of the Holy Ghost. Now I have the gift of the Holy Ghost and I am overcoming and have the ears to hear what the Sprit says. Now I have the power to "Love". And now I am becoming an example of a true child of God a Christian vessel that carries the gift of light unto man. A tabernacle of Flesh.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by faithfully reading the scriptures everyday. I pray continually, thanking God for all the blessings he gives me. I now read the Scriptures with my friends and family who are searching for a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ. I volunteer to help others with a giving heart. I have been called as a Genealogy Consultant and have such joy researching family history and helping others learn about their heritage. I now look forward to helping others and not worrying about the time I don't have for myself. I am happy and walk in peace. I now care about being involved and get joy from helping others.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Tina
Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son of God who came in the flesh. He died for our sin's on the cross and through the Atonement we can be forgiven of our sins, when we truly repent. It is the grace & love he has for us that he is the mediator between God and us and through him we can return to our Heavenly Father. He led a perfect life. He taught by word and the example of how people should live in love of God and with others. Through his resurrection he saved us from death, because he overcame death. He is our Savior and without him we cannot return to our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
