Hi I'm Bonnie

I grew up in Grantsville, Utah. I'm a librarian and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read, crochet, watch movies and do puzzles. I like to collect things like floaty pens and unusual pens, bells, magnets, keychains and pins. I love teddy bears, lady bugs and turtles. I also like to watch football games and attend plays. I love to travel. Family is important to me as well as good friends. I spend a lot of time with my nieces and nephews :)

Why I am a Mormon

I know that Jesus is the Christ. He is our redeemer and our savior. Without his atonement, we would be lost and unable to return to live with him again. I want to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus and with my family and loved ones for eternity. Life is hard but I'm striving to live the commandments so that one day I can live with them again. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love us and they know us personally. They care about us and what is happening in our lives. They hear our prayers and answer them, sometimes not in the way we'd like or as fast as we'd like. Sometimes the answer is no. But they always answer our prayers. I know that they know what is for our good and what is best for us. I also know that we have prophets and apostles on the earth in our day. Can you believe it? Of course, Heavenly Father and Jesus love us as much as the people who have been on the earth before us. They had apostles and prophets to help them while they were on the earth and so do we. President Thomas S. Monson is our prophet on the earth today and we have apostles that also testify of Christ and his ministry. I love to hear from these men. They are inspired and are here to help us in our day. I know that Joseph Smith was also a prophet and he restored the church so that we could have the same blessings and privileges that existed at the time of Christ. What marvelous blessings we have!! I'm grateful for the scriptures, i.e. the words of God. We have the Bible that testifies of Christ and we have the Book of Mormon that also testifies of Christ. I enjoy reading the scriptures. They mean a lot to me and help me in my life. I try to read them every day. I'm grateful for the gospel and the meaning it gives to my life. Yes, I'm a Mormon, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm grateful that for wonderful blessing with greatly enriches my life!!

How I live my faith

I attend my ward each Sunday. Currently, I'm a counselor in the women's organization in our ward. I'm responsible for coordinating monthly women's meetings once a month. Each month, the sisters get together on a weeknight to learn different things. For example, last month, we had someone talk about things we could do to beautify our homes. We talked about getting rid of some clutter. I sure needed to hear about that! I also enjoy getting to know each sister in our ward. There are so many wonderful women out there! In addition, I conduct meetings and occasionally give lessons to the sisters. I also visit three or four sisters each month at their homes. We usually talk about how things are going in their lives and I give them a short uplifting message. This has been a great blessing to me to get to know others on an individual basis. I enjoy it when sisters come to visit me as well. It is great to have someone take a special interest in me and what is happening in my life. I enjoy their visits.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Bonnie
We believe in grace. The atonement of Jesus Christ provides the grace we need to allow us to enter the kingdom of God if we accept the atonement and repent of our sins. We are all human and make mistakes. Because of our mistakes, we cannot save ourselves. We need the grace of the atonement along with our repentence to be allowed to enter the kindgom of heaven. We also believe that it is the grace of the atonement that saves little children that die before the age of accountability. Those children will be "saved" and allowed into the kindgom of our Father because of the atonement. Show more Show less
