Hi I'm Mookie Harris

I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love being very active! I grew up in a small town where there was nothing to do but play at the park and have an imagination. I love the outdoors! I am currently attending a University where I will get my Associates of Arts. I like to draw on the sidewalk! I also like graphic design! I played volleyball all through high school and take it as a work out class! It is fun and keeps me healthy! I have taken leadership courses and was involved in student government when I was in high school! It really taught me a lot of things! I love people and doing new things! I have jumped out of a perfectly good airplane before, and adventure is constantly calling me! I live the standards of the Church and it has directed my life to serve a full time mission and I have been called to Mendoza Argentina! I am really excited for this journey!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Laderday Saints becuase its right! If I wasn't a member, I don't know what I would do! I know you might look at me and think "Well she was just born into that religion, its the way she was raised", but there comes a point where it isn't your parents anymore. I particularly found this out my Freshmen Year of high school. I was having a hard time with the whole faith is believing not seeing. No one can describe the things they know from when they actually took that step to figure out if it is right for themselves. I can't say anything for whoever is reading this, (if you are not a member of this church) that is going to convince you that this is the true church. The only thing that I can say is if you don't believe, if you can't feel the spirit from the things our church leaders testify, or even when the missionaries testify to you, than you need to read the book of mormon and pray for yourself. No one can make you have faith, its all about doing it for yourself. I promise you that once you get that revelation that god is our father and he sent his only begotton son to save us from our sins, you will never regret your choice. There is unexplainable happiness and knowledge that comes with this gospel and I am truely grateful for it in my life. My lord has been there when no one else has, to help me and comfort me whenever I need it most. If you are feeling lost, like no one is there, reach out to heavenly father! He will comfort you in your time of need and be your constant companinon! I know this gospel is true and no one will ever take it away from me! Find out for yourself and take that step to happiness! A life you never knew could exsist is waiting for you! I say it in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the scriptures everyday, and also praying to my Father in heaven. I know that if I pray to him I will have a better relationship with him and I will come to know him more. I know that if I do this, and ask for the holy ghost to watch over and protect me and guide me in my day to day activities, I will have the strength I need to resist the things that are harmful to me. I have had the chance to be in a position where I can influence others around me, and I know that if I keep the simple commandments and strive to do my part in being sin free that my light from our heavenly father can shine to those around me. I also try to serve people as much as possible! "If you are in the service of your fellow beings you are only in the service of your god" It is so true that when you serve people you feel great about yourself, because the holy ghost is instilling those thoughts into your head. I also attend church every sunday and strive to learn something every time. I go to Institute to help me feel the spirit in the middle of the week, and try do temple ordinances for the deceased at least once I week. I really enjoy being a member of the LDS church!
