Hi I'm Teresa

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mother, a daughter, sister, and a friend.

Why I am a Mormon

Why not be a Mormon. Why deny yourself of true happiness and the blessings that come with living righteously. In this world of trials, temptations, highs and lows the only thing that has ever brought me true, constant, continual peace, love, and happiness to my life is the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that through our Savior we can be forgiven of our sins and return to live again with our father in heaven. I know that this is the only true church with a living prophet to guide and direct us today.

How I live my faith

Every day I have to make a choice to live my faith. Some days I'm better at it then others. I live my faith with a constant prayer in my heart. I try to do my best everyday. I try to be like our perfect example, our savior, and put others needs before my own, be meek, humble, non judging. I obey the commandments. Read the scriptures. Attend all my church meetings on a weekly basis. Serve in my callings as a primary teacher, and a visiting teacher. The days I choose to do all these things I am happier and feel closer to my Heavenly Father.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Teresa
Many times a bishop will write,"I feel he has suffered enough!" But suffering is not repentance. Suffering comes from lack of repentance. A stake president will write," I feel he has been punished enough!" But punishment is not repentance. Punishment follows disobedience and preceded repentance. A husband will write", My wife has confessed everything!" But confession is not repentance. Confession is an admission of guilt that occurs as repentance begins. A wife will write,"My husband is filled with remorse!" But remorse is not repentance. Remorse and sorrow continue because a person has not yet fully repented. Suffering, punishment, confession, remorse, and sorrow may sometimes accompany repentance, but they are not repentance. What, then, is repentance? The meaning of repentance is not that people be punished, but rather that they change their lives so that God can help them escape eternal punishment and enter into his rest with joy and rejoicing. “For behold, I... have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer... even as I.” (Doctrine and Covenants 19:16-17) Show more Show less
