Hi I'm Tera

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Women have lots of titles. Employee, teacher, student, friend, sister, daughter, aunt, cousin .... the list could go on and on. All are meaningful and add blessings our lives. However, my greatest title is that of "mom." Over the past 25 years it has brought me more joy than I had ever imagined.

Why I am a Mormon

Someone told me recently that I am a Mormon because I my parents are. In part, that is true. I learned from their example and teachings. We attended church together as a family. I saw the strong faith and testimony of those around me, but at some point we all have to gain our own knowledge of those things we believe in. My testimony is simple. It is not based on one large life altering event or sign from God. It is based on answers to humble prayers and undeniable promptings from the Holy Ghost. I do not have a miraculous conversion story to share. For me my testimony has been strengthened through small and simple things. I know that Joseph Smith saw God, the Father and Jesus Christ in response to his simple prayer. I know that this prayer led to the restoration of the Gospel to the earth again. I know that we have a prophet that guides us today and am so grateful for that knowledge. I have read the Book of Mormon and have prayed to know that it is true. I have received that quiet confirmation that feels like fire in your heart. I know that I am a daughter of God, that I have a Heavenly Father that loves me and knows who I am. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I know that they are two separate beings. I know that families can be eternal if bound together by sealing ordinances in the temple. I know that this is the only way by which we can be together forever.

How I live my faith

My hands are busy each day with opportunities to serve. Right now I am serving with the single adults in our community. I love their energy, excitement for the future and their sense of humor! They are preparing to do great things with their lives.
