Hi I'm Priya

I love my life, I work, I Play, I bake and I believe in "ATONEMENT" and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am born and raised in India. Our family belonged to Hindu religion. We are total of 5 in our family. One elder sister and one elder brother.I am the youngest in my family. My parents taught us to be self sufficient and independent most of the time. I did work part time and I was able to complete my graduation in India. Later I decided to do my Masters degree and I took a major step to move to United states. I successfully graduated with my Masters Degree and currently working in Minnesota. I love my life and every aspect of it. I lean on my Heavenly Father, for Whom I am a "Precious Daughter".

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it brings me JOY. I am a convert of the church. I joined church in India. When missionaries handed me the book of mormon I read and prayed about it and I Truly felt something which I couldn't realize then. But later I was baptized and blessings came in my life. Now I know what I felt is called Holy Spirit. I will not say life will be a bed of roses after you join the church, but I came to know the purpose of my life and How much Heavenly Father loves me. I couldn't ask for more from him when he sent his own beloved son to die for my sake. I am a Mormon because of the standards we have in our lives. I understand that one can be happy without any bad habits. I am Mormon because I believe in Eternal Marriage and Temples are the biggest blessings in our life. Gospel teaches us to raise strong families and Happy Families. Scriptures help me to receive answers for my prayers. Our prayers will be answered but not in our time but in his time. I am Mormon because of the Faith I Have in this Fullness of Gospel and the blessings I received in my life. I am happy and blessed to join the church and I believe in Christ's Atonement.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example. I would like to lead my life as how Savior did. I am not as perfect as My Heavenly Father and My Savior Jesus Christ. I like being them. In this process my church helps me every sunday to learn new things to apply in my life. I would like to help others. Holy Spirit helps me to choose the right and I try to listen to the spirit and follow its guidance. I live my faith by being kind and nice to each other. I love making friends and I live my gospel by serving others as much as I can. I believe in Christ and I live each day as his gift to me. !!!! I would like to bear my testimony that This church is true and I believe in Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit. I believe in Prophets and Apostles. Those who pray and ask in faith will receive answers to their prayers.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Priya
In order to know our Heavenly Father, We need to realize that He is always with us. I know him better and better when I look at my family, mother Nature, My friends, people around me. He gave me all these things because he loves me. We can feel him when we do what is right. Study the scriptures, pray unto him. He will listen, Follow the commandments, He will be happy in you. He wants us to come closer to him. Know him personally and feel his love. He is always with us. He Loves us so much. :) Show more Show less
