Hi I'm Dianne, AKA BookofMormonReader

Some call me The Queen of Makeovers. Look GOOD. Feel GOOD. Be GOOD. Do GOOD. I read The Book of Mormon on YOUTube & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a daughter of Heavenly Father, a wife, a mother, a sister, auntie, friend, neighbor, much like YOU, I'll bet. I'm also a college graduate, a native Californian, a positive thinker, an optimist, and Disneyland lover. I adore chocolate, I enjoy laughing, and fine dining. We wear so many hats, like Bartholemew Cubbins, and that's what makes life so interesting. I'm also an English teacher for adult immigrants, a make-up artist, a YouTuber, a radio show host, and author. Some call me "The Queen of Makeovers", inside and out. My specialties include skin care, cosmetics, jewelry, divorce recovery, dating after 40, hair, social media marketing, laughing and SUNSHINE. I’m an American Citizen Patriot I believe in GOD. I believe in keeping and striving earnestly to keep His TEN COMMANDMENTS. I believe MARRIAGE between a man and a woman. I believe in FAMILY. I believe in FREEDOM. I believe in an honest day of work for an honest day’s pay. I believe in charity and the goodness of humanity to care for the truly poor of their own free will and choice, not by government mandate. I believe in the CONSTITUTION of the United States. I believe in the ideals of the FOUNDING FATHERS of the United States. I believe in Freedom OF RELIGION, not freedom FROM religion. I believe people have a right to their own idea of worship AS LONG AS THEIR beliefs don’t infringe on MY rights and beliefs. I believe CHARACTER matters. I believe INTEGRITY matters.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a privileged and honored to declare with sound mind and unwavering faith and commitment, that I am a devout life-long member of The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints, with a humbling and illustrious ancestry of equally devout pioneer heritage. Although I was Born In The Covenant, at some point I questioned my faith and realized I knew it was true all along, so I was re-committed to my devotion.

How I live my faith

Funny how you can sometimes tell that a person believes in God OR NOT because of how they act. But truthfully, how could a person who truly believed in being Christlike NOT have their daily behavior reflect their beliefs? It is said in Matthew 7:16 "By their fruits ye shall know them." Loving children obey their loving parent's rules. Heavenly Father loves us SO much, that He gave us commandments and the ultimate example, His Son, as well as living prophets today, just as in times past, to show us the way to eternal happiness. The sooner we realize that His commandments do that instead of restrict us, the sooner we can experience true joy. (Just look how miserable people are when they break His commandments.) That being said, I willingly strive to follow the counsel given by prophets in our day regarding just about everything in life --what to eat, what to wear, what to watch, listen to, have on the walls of my home, and more--DAILY, not just on Sunday. I eat healthy food, I refrain from partaking any harmful substances such as coffee, tea, drugs, or alcohol, and I honor my body as the holy vessel of my Spirit by not having tattoos or excessive piercings (one per ear). I dress modestly and practice excellent hygiene. I bathe, wash my hair, brush my teeth, and do my best to look lovely daily. I know how fiercely committed to beauty God is, I feel it a divine duty to honor and unveil the beauty He blessed me with. I watch uplifting media only and avoid rated "R" movies. I listen to beautiful music. I read great books. I study His Word intently. I use the power of my words to bless and build others, not bruise or belittle them. I serve countless hours in my callings at church, attend weekly meetings and strive to attend the temple monthly. Mostly I try to be a good person and help others. I love it when I offer help to my mom. She closes her eyes, tilts her head back and smiles, saying, "Ahh, it's like music to my ears." That always makes me laugh.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Dianne, AKA BookofMormonReader
It has been said that reading The Book of Mormon will bring a man closer to God than by reading any other book. That's HUGE. Why? I think it's because it's another witness of Jesus Christ that Bible lovers will rejoice in. Absolute truth can not be withheld from a sincere seeker. The Lord's pattern of speaking through prophets is continued in The Book of Mormon, a translation of sacred ancient writings, buried on the American continent by a prophet named "Mormon" who foresaw OUR day and testified they were for US. Later, the writings were unearthed by a humble latter-day prophet named Joseph Smith. The book testifies of Jesus Christ, God's son, our Saviour. He visited the people he spoke of in John 10:16, His "other sheep" and they recorded it. For me, The Book of Mormon is a wonderful gift that keeps on giving. No matter what I read or how many times I read the same passage, I receive something new and edifying, depending on what I need. Truly, we are shown answers to our prayers by letting Him speak to us through His Word. My brother said it was like a Rubik's Cube, with an infinite number of solutions. Near the end of The Book of Mormon there is a great promise in Moroni 10:4 on p. 529 that if you read The Book of Mormon and sincerely pray about it, you can know by the Holy Ghost that it is true. I love that you can go straight to your Heavenly Father and He will let you know in your heart personally. You don't have to take MY word for it. Try it yourself. Show more Show less
