Hi I'm Stephanie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently attending Brigham Young University- Idaho. I am majoring in Biology and minoring in Chemistry. My long term goal is to become a pharmacist. I love to be able to help people as I give them what they need in order to feel better; it is extremely fulfilling.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be a member of the church because it changed my life and it changed my family's life. The missionaries of the church were great examples to me, and the gospel brought a lot of happiness to my life. I know that our Heavenly Father loves us, and He never forgets us; He is mindful of all of us and knows our specific situations. I know that when we pray, He is indeed listening. He loved us so much that He sent His only son to die on the cross for us. Jesus Christ knows every pain we feel, every sadness we feel , the happiness we feel, and He is always there for us. The comfort we can receive through prayer is incredible; we can receive answers to our prayers when we pray with a sincere desire. The church is true, and it was again brought to the Earth through the prophet Joseph Smith. Christ lives and is our Savior.

How I live my faith

Since I got baptized into the church, I have served in different assignments within the church. I have helped organize activities for youth, taught youth groups, and played the piano for our main services. I love playing my part within the church however big or small my assignment may be.

What do Mormons believe about family?

This is one of the principles of the church that caught my attention the most when I was learning about the church. The family is called of God. Families can be together forever through proper covenants made in the Holy temple. When families are sealed or bound together through the priesthood, God's power on earth, families are able to live together in eternity. This principle brings incredible joy to me because it gives me something to work on and look forward to after this life. A lot of time is invested in the family and in making the home a sanctuary, and it is comforting to think that the associations within the family will continue after this life. Family is important to me in my life, and the family unit is important within the church as well. It is through these associations where we are able to grow and learn together; it is the primary place for nurturing and where the gospel can be taught. I love the idea of eternal families.
