Hi I'm Libby

I am fascinated with human behavior, obsessed with traveling and live for holidays. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I like lists. To sum up my love for life, here goes: 1. I love taking pictures (My favorite is the iZone camera!) 2. I love traveling (some would call it a guilty pleasure) 3. I think the Food Network and the idea of culinary school is GENIUS! 4. Unique is the best compliment I can receive 5. I collect magnets from all over the world (places I have traveled to) 6. I wish I grew up in the 60's and 70's 7. I am a College Graduate. Education rocks! 8. I am a convert, so to speak 9. Primary kids testimonies inspire me the most 10. Pass along cards are the next best thing 11. The more I smile, the more fun I become 12. Music... life's dearest treasure 13. Is there anything more precious than laughing? 14. Thanks to a friend of mine, I am now collecting vinyl records

Why I am a Mormon

Wow~ where do I start? The Lord has truly blessed me. I have had some incredible experiences that have increased my faith and knowledge of the gospel. Through these experiences, I have learned to lean on my Father in Heaven, study the scriptures and pray with increased faith. There was a long period in my life where I wasn't sure which path I would choose or where I would end up, but Heavenly Father knew what I needed in my life to appreciate the gospel. Although raised in the church, I found myself doubting and feeling confused. I had to gain a testimony for myself, and in time (into my early 20's, actually) I was truly converted. I am so grateful to have the knowledge that Heavenly Father has a plan for me, is patient and forgiving. The Lord chastens his people because He loves us. Heavenly Father is truly aware of my needs, desires and I have faith that He will grant them when I am ready to receive them. He knows all things, and I trust him.

How I live my faith

The Lord taught by example. I try to live my Faith by example, also. I pray each day to have the Holy Ghost with me so I can be in tune to receive inspiration and promptings to do His work. As long as I am trying to be the best I can be, I know that I will be blessed for my efforts. Lately, I have had increased inspiration to do missionary work. Whether or not I where an official missionary badge, I can still be a missionary and teach others about the gospel. Opening my mouth is the hardest part, but I find that the more open and honest I am about the gospel and how it makes me feel, others feel the presence of the spirit and want to know more.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Pornography is increasing due to the accessibility of technology. Technology is definitely fantastic, but it needs to be monitored. It is wise to put computers in public, well trafficked areas of the home. Parental controls are always helpful too. Although with all of these precautions, in the case that pornography does impact a loved one, it is important to be understanding/supportive in this situation. Those who may become addicted to pornography seek help from those who are understanding and open, and truly have their best interest at heart. Show more Show less
