Why I am a Mormon

many years ago, my mum phoned me and told me she had become a mormon, i had never heard of the mormons and was concerned for her, as she lived in dunedin nz, i lived in the north island. i flew to dunedin to find my mum with four missionaries, i listened to what they had to say and i was rather rude to them, as i had a very hard life as a child growing up and a father who didnt love me, so i was rather negative, they asked me to pray with them and i said no, they knelt down to pray and one elder cried, i saw some stranger shed a tear for me someone who didnt know me and yet here he is crying for me. my heart felt different, softened by that tear, the next day i went to church with my mum, no one said anything to me but i felt this is what i had been looking for all my life, i looked around and saw husbands holding their wives hands, children sitting together with their families, people showing respect for one anther, and this is what i wantedi was baptised two weeks later.

How I live my faith

i work as a home nurse in the community and i work in the temple with my husband i am a music director in church i organise the music for sacrament meetings, and for quiors, and musical items, i am a visiting teacher, and go with my husband hometeaching. we have cottage meetings once a month for investigators and members.
