Hi I'm Lonni

I'm a friend, a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Colorado where my family currently resides. I am soon going to be serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ if Latter-day Saints in Vina del Mar, Chile, and I am so excited to share the happiness and joy I have received from the gospel of Jesus Christ with people in Chile. I enjoy music, playing the piano, camping, swimming, board games, and spending quality time with my family and friends. I love animals, children, teaching, and sharing the gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

I have a strong testimony in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that He died for me. Because of His Atonement, I know that I am never alone and that He will always support me no matter what stage I am at in life. I am so grateful that through the means of the Atonement, I can repent of my sins and become clean again. I know that through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, I can live with my Heavenly Father again someday. I know He loves all of His children equally and has a plan for each of us. I also know that sometimes we need to sacrifice the plans we have for ourselves for the much better plans our Father in Heaven has for us. I know that Joseph Smith is truly a prophet of God who restored His gospel to this earth and made it possible for us to have the Book of Mormon. I have a testimony that the Book of Mormon is true doctrine and that when we read it, we come closer to our Heavenly Father, who loves us more than we can understand. I know that President Thomas S. Monson leads our church and receives revelation from a living God. I support him and the Apostles of the church who lead and guide us in these latter days. I love my Savior and Father in Heaven and know that I will live with them again someday.

How I live my faith

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints provides many ways to serve its members and others. I know that when we visit and teach others, we can enrich their lives through service and understanding. I also know that we must be united as children of God and help each other back to our Heavenly Father. I know that the people we associate with everyday are people who are put into our lives. I know that our Heavenly Father trusts us to take care of each other, as we are all children of Him, while we are on this earth until we can live in His presence again. I truly believe that as we make a conscious effort to make God a priority in our lives, we will always be happy and everything will fall into place the way it is supposed to. I know this because i have experienced it in my life countless times. I know that God will never leave us alone and gives us trials in our lives to strengthen us and help us become the beings He know we can be. As we pray to Him in the name of Jesus Christ and listen for answers, we will receive comfort, peace, and guidance in our lives. I know that we can experience true happiness in this life when we strive to live the way our Father in Heaven wants us to.
