Hi I'm Debbie

I'm a Mormon. I work for a telecom management company. I raised 5 children and have 3 grandchildren.

About Me

My parents were both Methodist when they were married. They joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I was 3 years old. My dad was in the Air Force so we moved from place to place. I love to sew, embroidery, and I am learning about quilting. I work full time and take care of my husband who is on dialysis 3 times a week. Since his illness, I have learned to depend on the Lord and the scriptures. I am thankful for the small miracles that have been given to us these past few years. I am a mother of 5 children and for the most part had the privilege of staying home with them for the most of their growing up years. 4 of the 5 are married. I have 3 grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

At first I chose to be a member of the church because my parents were. Now I am a member, because I have learned to love the Lord and I want to follow His leaders the prophets. I am thankful for being able to grow up in a church that believes in standards, that believes in families, that believes in the values and commandments that Christ teaches us. I am a member, because I know the leaders will not waffle under pressure from the outside world from the true doctrines that are taught. I know that Christ teachings are the same today, yesterday and forever. I know my Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ love me and care for me, like they love everyone else. I know that Heavenly Father loves us so much He provided us Prophets and Apostles to teach and direct us back to Him.

How I live my faith

I listen to others. I help when I see a need. I pray for others. I visit women and leave with them a message to uplift them and teach them. I try to show kindness to others. I take time to be with my family when they need me. I read my scriptures to find answers to questions I have.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Debbie
Our main belief is that the Bible teaches us gospel principles from Apostles and Prophets of old. We do believe that it is Holy Scriptures and that is from God through His Prophets and Apostles. These are teachings that are taught to help us become closer to our Savior and they were taught to the Israelites in Israel and in the old world. The Book of Mormon compliments the Bible as another testament that Jesus is the Christ. These teachings are also to help us become closer to our Savior. These teachings are taught to the people in the new world or the American continent. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Debbie
Our families provide a strength for each other. Every member can teach others. We learn to serve each other, sacrifice for each other, take care of each other and even learn to get along despite our differences. We learn to love others and become better people to others. Our families are our safe house from the storms life gives us. If our families are strong, then we can build a strong nation, and a peaceful world. Show more Show less
