Hi I'm Stephanie Jones

I am from Queen Creek, Arizona. I love to dance, run, cook up yummy recipes, and I am also a missionary in Puebla, Mexico!

About Me

I know without a doubt that God gave us the opportunity to live on Earth so that we could learn and grow, acquire knowledge, and use our wisdom to become more like Christ. I know that God loves all of his children- we each have value and infinite potential to become like God. I am currently serving as a missionary in Puebla, Mexico and loving it! I find such comfort in knowing that God loves each of us despite our actions. He truly is a father figure, he beckons us all to return to him.

Why I am a Mormon

I have had a testimony of the gospel from the time I was a little child. I remember trying to wrap my mind around the creation of the world without a God, and I knew that it was impossible for our universe to have been developed without a master creator. Because I knew that God was real, it lead to me to question why He would have put us on Earth. I wanted to know what our purpose really was. As I continued to study and learn the gospel, I began to understand the plan of salvation and the Atonement. I learned that God gave us life on Earth to give us the opportunity to acquire knowledge and wisdom. He gave us this life to strengthen and improve us! He recognized that we were all going to make mistakes that would keep us from returning to live with Him again, so He sent Jesus Christ to suffer for our sins. Christ's Atonement allows all of us the equal opportunity to be forgiven of our sins, if we accept Him and utilize His Grace through faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. I am a Mormon because I know that God loves us- I have felt that love! I know without a doubt that we are meant to be and do more than we can comprehend, and as we keep the commandments and turn our hearts to the Savior we are able to become a little better each day. I am a Mormon because I know that the only way to return to live with God is through His Son's Atonement, and I know that there is no other church on Earth that teaches more correct doctrine and principles on how to become better people and follow Christ's example. I am a Mormon because I love my God, my Savior, my family and I can not wait to live with all of them again!

How I live my faith

I am currently living my faith by serving as a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Mexico. My purpose as a missionary is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored Gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. I spend time studying the Book of Mormon, the Bible, the words of the Prophets and Apostles, and praying to God to strengthen my faith and relationship with God so that I may be able to help others who are searching for the truth come unto Christ.
