Hi I'm Hillary Feiner

I'm a college student, studying preschool education. I love art, hiking, and making others smile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'am a college student and really enjoy learning about preschool education and child development. I live with 5 roommates, together we have lots of fun taking pictures, adding new comments to our quote wall, making fun new art projects ( like a pearler bead animals in jungle on our living room wall), and listening to music. I'am the oldest in my family and have three younger siblings. My younger siblings have their fair share of challenges and so between helping them and job's I've had, I have a lot of experience working with individuals with disabilities. I grew up in Vermont and absolutely love it there. Vermont is where all of my family is, it is and always will be my home.

Why I am a Mormon

My Mom converted to the church when I was a child, she is now a very active member of the church and is a wonderful example to me. My Dad isn't a member of the church. Growing up with a father who wasn't a member it was easier to make excuses to skip church to stay with dad, but I learned how important this religion was to me by noticing the differences between how I felt those days I would stay home and the times that I went to church. I didn't always want to go to church, but I know how important it is, and that is absolutely the best way I could spend any Sunday. I have every other day of the week to do everything I need to do, and I know that when we go to church the Lord will bless us with the time to do all of the other things we need to accomplish. I've learned to appreciate this gospel so much and I know that this is the true church. Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy ghost are three separate beings and they all help me so much in my life. The Lord has blessed me with the love of my life, my talents, and my Mom finding the church. Jesus died for me and because of that I'am able to repent and receive eternal life. The Holy ghost guides me daily and as long as I'am open to listening to it's revelations I'am able to receive guidance. The temple is the greatest place in this entire world, it allows me to feel the spirit, be close to the Lord and do important work. Someday I will be sealed in the temple for eternity and I know that that is the greatest blessing in existence; to be able to be with my family forever. That is the greatest gift EVER and I'am so grateful for it, and for all the lessons and guidance this gospel has given me.

How I live my faith

My home area is a small branch in Vermont, but when I'm at college I am in one of the hundreds of wards. I have served in many callings, but currently Iam an indexer. I translate records and names of people, this is a really neat calling and I'am grateful for the ability to make a difference and do this work. I have also worked as a primary teacher, door greeter, president of the beehives, miamades, and Laurels ( young women's groups), and compassionate service leader. In every calling I've had I always feel important to have it and to serve the Lord. He does much more for me than I could ever do for him. I look forward to and am gratful for all of my callings.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Hillary Feiner
Temples are the house of the Lord, they are often referred to as a house of prayer. The temple is a place to pray and feel close to the Lord. It is also a place to learn eternal truths, and receive ordinances. The temple is a wonderful place for members to do service and help others receive ordinances and eternal truths. The best way to find out about the temple is to walk the grounds and feel the spirit of the Lord, and if your able to, go and do service their yourself. The temple is my favorite place on earth and it is an important place to feel the spirit of the Lord. Having temples on the earth is truly a blessing to everyone. Show more Show less
