Hi I'm Jody

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Christian. I am also a mom. These are the two best decisions I have ever made.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many people, religions, and Faiths in the world that have given accounts of the Savior visiting Prophets on the earth, but I have never read or heard any accounts of a man being visited by both GOD AND JESUS CHRIST, until Joseph Smith. The message was so important that Christ brought His Father with him!! Before I knew that The Father and His Son visited the earth, I was lost. Not really searching, just "existing". Now, I know that our Redeemer loves each one of us, individually.

How I live my faith

I have the privilege of teaching children the gospel of Jesus Christ, on Sundays. My own children also learn, in our home, from the scriptures.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Jody
All that we have comes from God. We are showing our faith in Him by giving a tiny portion back to Him to further His work here on the earth. "Tithing is not so much a matter of dollars as it is a matter of faith." Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Jody
Our religion is based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. We accept Jesus Christ as our Leader, our King, our Savior...the only perfect Man who ever walked the earth, the living Son of the living God. Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints pray and worship in the name of Jesus Christ. He is the center of our faith and the head of our Church. Show more Show less

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Jody
Our primary family worship service is called sacrament meeting. This meeting is held in our chapels on Sunday and lasts approximately 70 minutes. Visitors are welcome to attend. It is common for families to attend, and we are accustomed to having children as part of the congregation. A typical meeting would consist of the following: Hymns: Religious songs sung by the congregation (hymn books are provided). Prayers: Offered by local Church members. Partaking of the sacrament (communion): The sacrament consists of prepared bread and water, which is blessed and passed by priesthood holders to those in attendance who wish to do so. Speakers: Typically a meeting will have two or three assigned speakers. (Note: We do not pass a plate or request donations as part of our worship services.) Visitors are also welcome to attend other Sunday meetings that precede or follow sacrament meeting: Sunday School classes are offered for each age group, beginning with 12 year olds. Primary meetings consist of a group service and age-oriented classes for children 3 through 11 years of age. A nursery is available for young children, ages 18 months to 3 years. Young Women meetings provide classes for those 12 through 17 years of age. Relief Society meeting is for women, ages 18 years and older. Priesthood meetings provide age-oriented classes for males 12 years and older. Show more Show less
