Hi I'm Ginger

I'm a Mormon and I am the first member in my family to join the church.

About Me

I am a mother and a grandmother and have been married for 50 years!!! I worked for an airline in the VIP room and met many famous people. I also worked in New Home Sales in Real Estate and that was my favorite job ever. This is very exciting to me because I am the happiest that I have ever been even at this older age of 72. My hustand and I get along better than ever each year that we are married. Our children are AMAZING and two are active in the church and one is on vacation from the church!!! We have a wonderful time with our grandchildren and have them over or go and see them as often as we can!!! We love them and are very thankful for them in our lives. Life is no life at all withour children unless the Lord did not give them to us. Then I could still be happy but they are wonderful and we have HUGE love for them! I serve in the TEMPLE and this is the BEST place to be in the whole wide world and bring me the MOST JOY!!! Serving the LORD makes me the happiest and "I am the happiest girl in the whole USA"!!! Learning in this church is UNBELIEVABLE and I have learned more than I ever imagined as a member of this church!!! I know where I came from, I know why I am here, and know where I am going after this life is over for me! These things I used to wonder about but do not have to wonder any more!

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be a member of this church because my hisband did not want to be a Catholic so we visited churches. Then he said that he would join the Mormon church because he mad mormon's working for him and they were clean cut guys with values! We invited the missionaries over and even though I thought that God was Catholic, I crossed my arms and listened to their message. They showed me in the Bible where Jesus said that "this is my beloved son" and that meant that he was not a mist and could not be everywhere at once. They told us not to take their word for it but that we had to pray to see for ourself if what they told us was true. I prayed three times but they were spread out and I got an answer from on high! I knew that Heavenly Father answered my prayer because I had an unbelievable HAPPY feeling through my whole body that I knew that the church was true. I stood in the hallway and jumped up and down and turned around as I said "I know that the church is true". Some of our children saw and heard me and I was EXTREMELY HAPPY that I received an answer from on high!!!

How I live my faith

I have taught Primary with the youngest children to the older ones about the gospel in our church. I have taught in the womans orginazation of the church to the ladies in our ward and loved every minute of it! I have taught the Young Women and love being with them and teaching them. I have served the homeless by making dinner and serving them for a year that was a wonderful experience. It made me thankful to have a pillow to sleep on, a tooth brush to brush my teeth, a shower with soap and shampoo, and a refrigerator that I could go and get food whenever I wanted to! I have changed inside and out by obeying the precepts of this GREAT Gospel! I know that this church is true!!! All of it is TRUE!!! I am sure of it!!! It is all TRUE!!! I invite you to take the missionary discussions to see for yourselves if it is true!!! YOU WILL NEVER BE SORRY!!! IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIVES AND THE LIVES OF YOUR POSTERITY!!!

Who are the Mormons?

Ginger
Mormons are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who are baptized by being immerced in water by church members who hold the Priesthood! Then we renew our covenants every Sunday by taking the Sacrament and letting Heavenly Father that we want to be like HIM, we want to obey everything that he asks of us, and repent of our sins and take the Holy Sacrament! Our church is the same as the original church of Jesus Christ established when He was on the earth! Show more Show less

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

Ginger
The Lord chooses the Mormon prophet!!! When one prophet dies the Lord lets the other apostles know who he has chosen! They all get the same answer by revelation and even we can receive revelation by repenting of our sins and being clean and pure so we can receive revelation too! Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Ginger
The purpose of life is to gain a body and live on this earth and to learn to obey everythign that Heavenly Father asks of us! Even though this is not easy it is worth EVERYTHING!!! We show HIM and OURSELVES that we can do it and that we love HIM enough to do anything that he asks of us!!! Show more Show less

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Ginger
The Holy Ghost can help us in every aspect of our lives from raising our children, helping in our marriage and helping us to get back to Heavenly Father and live with Him and our families in the eternities! He lelps us by the Still Small Voice which are the thoughts that we think about that the Holy Ghost puts in our minds. He also helps us make right choices when we listen closely to our thought that he puts into our heads!!! We can tell that it is the HOLY Ghost because it is usually something different that what we are usually thinking about and just pops in there like MAGIC!!! It is AMAZING and a PURE BLESSING!!!
