Hi I'm Guinan

I like to read, write, and help people. I'm going through school right now with the hope of being a business owner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I'm a very energetic person once you get to know me. I can't remember the number of books I've read, but I could tell most of my favorite authors. I am a writer myself, so, even though I can be energetic (and slightly prone to spouting random things) I prefer blending into the background until I make my stand. Also, it startles people and that's almost always fun.... I enjoy the beach, and the quiet of the woods, but one of my favorite things is looking at distance pictures of cities at night, with all of their sparkling, distracting, twinkling, lights.... I enjoy talking business and books, as well as basically anything else, and I'm almost always an open book about things, because I do not like to lie. I will tell you things you might not like to hear, it I consider them the truth, but, I will never be mean about it, I would be calm and curtious the whole time. I will always do and be my best.

Why I am a Mormon

I have had many a chance to walk away from this church. I have ignored myself and have almost destroyed my school life a time two. It has always felt wrong, not going to church on Sundays, or not remembering or participating in Fast Sundays. When I choose not to Say my prayers at night, I, more often than not, get nightmares. Being a member in the Lords church has me feeling safe and secure in his love, all of the time. I believe in him, I have faith in him, I love him. I know that he loves me, has faith me, and believes in me. I know that he would love me, believe in me, and have faith in me even if I did not in him.

How I live my faith

Since I have turned 18, I have started to join the adults more in their lessons, and have recently started visitng other members with a couple of women in my ward to talk and be their for other members when they need us, and especially when they don't think they do, we're their to cook, babysit, and have fun with the sisters, to be their for anything that they might need. I volunteer in my neighborhood to help those in need, whether it's watching the kids for a few minutes or bringing in groceries. I talk and am friendly with my neighboors.

Are Mormons Christians?

Guinan
Momons are Christians. We believe in Christ and his teachings. (We have a few hymns that say exactly that, actually). Show more Show less

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Guinan
It is a volunteer service. If you are doing something for money, than you are not doing it for God. Show more Show less

Who are the Mormons?

Guinan
Mormons is a nickname used for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We are ordinary everyday people, who sing and dance and laugh. We are your naext door neighboors, and your co-workers. We are models and actors. We are writers and tax payers. We are as human as you are. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Guinan
Yes. There is a living prophet today who performs the modern miracles of our time, just as Mose did, just as Noah, just as Isaiah. Thomas S. Monson (our prophet today) is here for us and through God can do as much as they did. Show more Show less

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Guinan
Mormons.... Live. They eat and laugh and enjoy life. We pray in the mornings and evenings, we pray when we need guidance. We read the scriptures of past and present (Past: Old and New Testaments, Book of Momon, Doctrine and Covenants, Pearl of Great Price. Present: General Conference, Church Magazines.). We have Church on Sundays, activities for the youth(typically 8-18) on weekdays, as well as programs for the younger kids (3or4-12), and fun nights or days for families and the women, and the men, individually and together, not to mention Seminary for those 14-18 and Institute 18-and up. We have functions for Districts, Stakes, Wards, and Branches. We are encouraged to bring our friends (if they are willing) to functions such as these, as well as to keep inviting them, no matter how many times they say no, in a polite, unobtrusive way. If you tell us to stop, we will stop. But we will not stop being your friend. We live busy, full lives. Show more Show less
