Hi I'm Evelyn

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Evelyn. I'm a 20 year old mama of one, and I'm married to my sweetheart for time and all eternity. I am currently struggling with postpartum depression, and a lack in testimony, but I KNOW this church is true, and I'm fighting to get that knowledge back! I've been a member my whole life, and throughout all the trials I've had, I have always known that this is where I want to be. I find my peace through crafting, writing, and talking to others, so I'm hoping I can provide some sort of testimony for you! I also blog about my life, crafts, and personal journey, at https://developdelight.wordpress.com/

Why I am a Mormon

My whole family is a part of this church, except for my dad. He is a GREAT man. He works so hard for us, is so supportive, and gives us all the love we need. But he does not have that personal testimony. He and my mother are married by the state. Meaning, at the moment, we are not sealed for time and all eternity This left me HEARTBROKEN at a very young age. I vowed to myself at 7 years old that I would NEVER subject my children to that. I want my future kids to KNOW that if anything happens, we WILL be together forever. I was extremely picky during my dating years, and I made sure to ask myself every time I went on a date, "will this guy take me to the temple? If my kids turn out exactly like this guy, will I be proud? Do I want to be stuck with a guy like this FOREVER?" These kinds of ideals created a STRONG testimony of the temple, and I am so grateful for that. When I was 17, I struggled with who I was. I had struggled throughout my life with an attraction to the same sex. Hiding that attraction for years was finally taking a toll on me, and after much prayer and scripture study, I was able to realize for myself that my Heavenly Father still loved and supported me through that, and this trial taught me to love ALL of God's children as if they were my siblings. It has given me a greater understanding of "Love One Another", and it has helped me accept who I am as a bisexual Mormon, regardless of what anyone else thinks of me. Right now, I am currently struggling with Postpartum Depression, and working on bringing my testimony back for REAL. But regardless of how I may feel, I KNOW that this gospel is real, and that it will truly help me through any trial that I face. And I want everyone else to know that it is true. No one else can change how you feel.

How I live my faith

I am slowly coming back to this faith mentally and emotionally, but I love helping other mothers out in this church and providing them with a friend! I try to live my life so that people will feel comfortable talking to me about ANYTHING, whether it be about the gospel, or whatever fun bar they went to that weekend. I want to be the friend they can count on for anything, and know that I won't judge their lifestyles or choices. I don't currently have any callings, but I've always been very good with the youth. I strive to set an example for them, because I know how impressionable I was at that age. I want to set an example for them that you can be a part of this church and still be a great, supportive, and non-judgmental person.
