Hi I'm Mehri

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My Name is Mehri I am a mother of four and have been married for over 20 years. I love to read all kinds of good books especially the scriptures, watching TV, Traveling and being with my loved ones. I enjoy attending church services with my family every Sunday and I am so grateful that because of The Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that no matter what happens I have faith & hope to continue and wait with patience on the blessings of God-- I am a Christian - and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a good family with good parents as a Catholic -- yet with the influences of the world I made many bad choices. As a young adult I had so much conflict and trials in my life; most were because of my own making and I was not happy. When my sister moved back to Texas from Montana, she introduced me to the Church, at first I did not like the church meetings but I loved attending the women's activities once a month...they made the best food ever! At that time, I was a single working mother trying to raise my daughter the best way I knew how. Little did I know there was something much better in our little world for both of us. I was invited to read the Book of Mormon so I did and I received a witness that the book was true and that what my sister and missionaries were teaching me was also true, it is an experience that I shall never forget. I later got re-married and had three more children - I had the wonderful opportunity to be a stay-at-home mother and raise them. It was then that I read from the Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Pearl of Great Price and the Doctrine & Covenants that I truly converted. These four books made me realize how the gospel fit like a perfect puzzle and that the Gospel of Jesus Christ was true. It is the same as it was yesterday, today and forever. When my youngest was of school age, I had the desire to obtain a higher education (something the church really believes in) and to my amazement and surprise, I tested out of some intermediate courses - I knew it was due to reading the scriptures because I was a poor student in high school. A few years later, I received my Bachelor's Degree and I am happy where I work and where I am at this point. One of my favorite scriptures is in 2 Cor 2:17 -Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. I hope people who knew me before will not remember me as I once was, but who I am now. I am a Child of God.

How I live my faith

I love attending Church with my family - usually when something wonderful happens to you or when you visit a place that leaves you in awe, you want someone to share that with you. This is how I feel about Sundays at church. When the talks are given and Sacrament is passed, I am so grateful that my family is there to share this wonderful experience with me for truly "my cup runneth over." I love my husband, my children and my wonderful grandchild, Titus with all my heart and I am so proud of them. We have been blessed with a wonderful Bishop (who does not get paid by the way) and loves tending to his sheep. I have served in many callings (jobs at church) throughout my membership and I am so grateful for the opportunities to have grown and learned what you do not get taught in schools. I have received many blessings and extended knowledge because of the callings I have served in. I am thankful for the Lord's Atonement and his Sacrifice for me and everyone. I want my children to do as I do even when I am not in their presence for I want them to avoid all the mistakes and regrets I lived through because I did not understand the True Gospel in my young life. I try to live my life the best I can and pray that others will come to know Jesus Christ, love him and like me, be happy! Thank God for the gift of Repentance and for the gift of a new day to start over.
