Hi I'm Celeste

I am grateful to be able to say- I am a wife, a homemaker, and a mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am grateful & proud to say that I am a wife, a homemaker, & a mother to a sweet happy baby boy. I am 22. I love reading, playing sports, doing simple crafts, & spending time with my family & friends. I am interested in Food & Nutrition at school but haven't taken any classes just yet, hopefully getting ready too. I love to serve, my thoughts often are on ways that I can, I am grateful for that desire & blessing. The Temple is one of my favorite places to be, its where I can relax, think, and feel the spirit so strongly. I am happy, and enjoying the journey! I know how important family is & am so thankful for my own eternal family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be able to be born into this gospel to loving parents & siblings. Even though I was born into the gospel I still had to gain my own testimony & conviction of the church, I can't live off of my parents testimony. I do know for myself that this gospel is true, and the only true church here upon the earth. how do I know? By praying, studying the scriptures, books, & talks & by having FAITH. Listening to our prophet President Thomas S. Monson who is a wonderful leader & example of our church. He is a true prophet. The Book of Mormon is true, the stories are real. The lessons are important. I know President Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he really did see God the Father & his Son Jesus Christ in the Sacred Grove, I am grateful for Joseph & his family & the members who were so strong & immovable. They are such a great example to me. They had to go through so much persecution & hardship but were able to overcome it because they had the Lord on their side, and they put their trust in him. I am blessed & proud to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. oh how I LOVE this gospel, it brings me so much happiness & joy. I am thankful for Temples & that I was able to be sealed to my husband and best friend, and that we along with our children can be together forever, what a great comfort & knowledge knowing that even if one of us passes away, that we will see each other again. I know the Lord loves ME & the Lord loves YOU! he is aware of you, and your trials, and your circumstances, he knows your desires, thoughts, & needs. He wants you to be happy & succeed in this life. He wants you to pray to him, and desire to be like him. Be happy, love much, & enjoy the journey!!

How I live my faith

I read/study my scriptures daily, read church books or magazines called (Ensign, Friend, Liahona, New Era) pray to my Father in Heaven daily multiple times throughout my day, relying on him! I love to serve others & make them happy, even if its just a "smile" or a "hello" to someone I don't know or do know. I just made homemade bread today & am going to be taking it to an older women who is in our ward with some homemade strawberry jam, I know she loves visitors & will enjoy visiting. I love going to the Temple & enjoying the peaceful feeling that comes when I am there. Learning about my Savior, and what I need to be doing in my life. I try to be a good example, & treat others how I would like to be treated. I love reaching out to those who are in need. I try to live my life as if the Savior was here with me, being a good example, and striving to be like him.
