Hi I'm Heather

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona, then I fell in love with a military-man who has taken me all over this great country of ours. A little over a year ago, after years of trying, we welcomed our little boy to our family. We hope to be blessed with more babies sometime soon. I'm privileged to be a stay at home mom.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon and I know it's true. I've studied the life of Joseph Smith, I have read his testimony, and I know that what he said is true. I know that Jesus Christ is my savior. I know He lives. I know He loves me. I know that He has a specific plan and purpose for my life. Living the gospel, His gospel fills me. It brings peace and love and joy to my life.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith as best I can. I pray and study the word of God and I try to live a Christ-like life.

What is being a Mormon like?

Heather
Being a Mormon (or a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) is wonderful. Aside from all the spiritual blessings it brings into my life -blessings such as the gift of the Holy Ghost, the Priesthood, and the promise of an Eternal Family- there is also this practical side that I truly love and appreciate. We are a military family, and we move a lot. Many of my military-wife friends always have the task of "church-shopping" when they relocate. They often have a difficult time finding a pastor or minister who has the same/similar interpretations of the Bible. In the church I belong to, because of the companionship of the Book of Mormon, and the clearness of the doctrines, we don't have to take time shopping for a pastor or minister who we can agree with. Because the same lessons and the same doctrines are being taught all over the world, for us its just a matter of looking up which ward we are assigned to and going. Then when we get there, we are instantly part of a "ward family." We are assigned two men "home teachers" and two women "visiting teachers" to help us with things we may be needing. I love having a built-in support system, automatically, wherever we go. The other women I meet through the military are also a wonderful support system, but it's always nice to be around people who believe all the same things you do. It's a feeling of always belonging, anywhere in the world I might find myself. Show more Show less
