Hi I'm Junie

I have lived in Arizona most of my life, had lived in Washington State for five years. I am a Mormon

About Me

I am married. I have 1 daughter who is going to college right now. I love to cross stitch. I work for a pharmacutical company where I am a Personal Care Advocate or Customer Service Rep.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member all my life. I'm a member because I feel good about what the church offers like we can be togeather for eternity by getting married in the temple which brings me peace to know that I could be with my family and with God and Jesus in the eternity. Also has services to help you with food when you have financial problems and help to find employment. I know that this is the Lords true church and that Joseph Smith did see God and Jesus to bring his church back.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday to learn of the teachings of the prophet and other leaders of the church, read the scriptures, pray daily for guidance throughout my day. I do visiting teaching and my calling is visiting teaching supervisor who I contact other sisters that I'm assigned to check if they had visited with the sisters that they visit each month. I also sing in the Choir.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Because all who have lived on the earth have not had the opportunity to be baptized by proper authority during life on earth, baptisms may be performed by proxy, meaning a living person may be baptized in behalf of a deceased person. Baptisms for the dead are performed by Church members in temples throughout the world. People have occasionally wondered if the mortal remains of the deceased are somehow disturbed in this process; they are not. The person acting as a proxy uses only the name of the deceased. To prevent duplication the Church keeps a record of the deceased persons who have been baptized. Some have misunderstood that when baptisms for the dead are performed the names of deceased persons are being added to the membership records of the Church. This is not the case. Show more Show less
