Hi I'm LaNada

I'm a Mormon. I have two sisters, my mother and father have both passed away.

About Me

In my life I have had two great influences, they being my mother and grandmother. I was taught about the LDS religion, I was baptized at the age of 8 years old as were my sisters. We went to church sometimes and read the scriptures never. My grandmother was dismayed over this, but continued to support and teach us about faith and love of JESUS CHRIST. My mother showed me determination and enduring through tough times with humor and smiles, for nothing was ever to difficult .

Why I am a Mormon

The love of Jesus for me is a tangible thing. Ever growing! I feel the light of Christ and I desperately don't want the emptiness I knew before becoming fully active in the Gospel,

How I live my faith

Study, pray, attending meetings and serving.
