Hi I'm Joscelyn

My passion is singing. I love acting and I like to design. I have a sure testimony, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up in Utah. I have loved singing from the beginging of my existance. I love to perform! I also love to design clothes and draw. I love to do art. I love to be around nature and one of my favorite things to do is going four-wheeling or riding on wave runners. (I get wild!) I am very friendly.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church. My parents have also. I am a Mormon because of my ancestors who chose God's path. I continue to be true to the faith because I have been taught of the gospel by my parents and many others. I have prayed and have had my prayers answered. The Holy Ghost has confirmed to me the truth of this gospel, and I know it is true. I have read the Book of Mormon. I have a sure knowlege of God and Jesus.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday for three hours. I look forward to church every week. It gives me guidance for the week, and I get a break from worldly cares and get to learn about the gospel. I get to learn about the gospel with the other girls in my area that are under 18. We are really close and we have great friendships. We are like sisters. We have other women teach us.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Joscelyn
We do baptisms for the dead because many people have not had the chance to get baptized or hear the gospel. We also do the other saving ordinances for them. Those who have died without these ordinances and have had them done proxy for them on earth have the chance to accept them so they can live with God again, even though they didn't have the chance on earth to have the gospel. I have done baptisms for ancestors and to know that they can live with God is truly amazing. Show more Show less

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Joscelyn
You can recieve revelation to hard decisions and questions, and through the Holy Ghost Heavenly Father can make known to you everything. The Holy Ghost can guide you from danger, evil, etc. But he also testifies to you the truth of the gospel. The Holy Ghost is a comforter also when you are in need of it. He also can guide you to do something or help someone. He can give you a thought to serve or about anything the Lord wants you to know. Basically, he is the Lord's messenger to you. But you can only recieve these blessings if you are worthy and don't ignore him. One time I got a prompting to read Joseph Smith History in my scriptures, and at the part where the lord and Jesus Christ appear to Joseph, the Holy Ghost testified to me this was true. I felt it in my heart and I started crying because I felt that truth. Show more Show less
