Hi I'm Desiree Labor

I I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have not been a member of the church my entire life, friends introduced me to the church and I started attending with them when I was twelve and got baptized when I was eighteen. Seven years later I served a mission in Columbus Ohio. . I loved teaching people about Jesus Christ. The mission has brought me closer to my savior and I know that Heavenly Father loves all his children. I am single; I love children but do not have children of my own. I hang out friends that have the same values as I do. I love to dance and being social. I play the piano. I love to read. I have an early childhood teaching degree, I been working with children for twelve years.

Why I am a Mormon

I have found a lot of peace in my life since I have become a member of the church. I have learned that God loves me and I will be able to get through trials with his help. I know that my prayers have been answered. I know that he leads and guides me every day of my life. Being Mormon has given me peace in my life, the church has brought me so much happiness. I have read and prayed about the book of Mormon, I know that it is another testament of Jesus Christ. It will draw us closer to Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith prayed to know what church to go to and he was answered by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know that we can have our prayers answered just like he had his on that spring day. If we do pray about it with real intent we can know for ourselves if the book of Mormon is true. The book of Mormon has changed my life and has made me want to be a better person and tell people how this book can change your life too. I know we have a prophet on this earth today who leads and guides us today. I love my savior I love telling people about him and how he wants us to draw close to him and follow him and his teaching.

How I live my faith

I try to live by the gospel principles. I read the scriptures and praying every day and keep the commandments. Some of my calling in the church are the Relief Society music chorister, I select the music according to the lessons that are given. I am also on the Relief Society Tuesday night meeting committee, we have meeting with the Relief society where we meet and talk about how we can become better women and teach each other new thing. I am also on my stake activities committee I have the opportunity to plan out activities and invite others to activities and have a good time while the event is centered on Jesus Christ. Another part of service that the Relief Society do is called Visiting teaching and we get to go visit other women in the church, and this is a unselfish service we get to be there for each other in our church, I have made some wonderful friendships by doing visiting teaching and love being there for one another. I have attended institute classes to learn more about the gospel I have taken a lot of classes to learn more about Jesus Christ and his gospel, from learning more about the prophets and what they are teaching us. A class on the book of Mormon where you can learn more about the stories and what God is teaching us. I love institute and how we can have a day in the middle of the week that draws us closer to Jesus Christ.
