Hi I'm Terrie

I'm a Christian I am a Mormon. I grew up in Oconomowoc Lake,Wisconsin and Live in California.

About Me

I grew up in a small town WI. I was born into the Roman Catholic Faith as well as the Southern Baptist Faith. Talk about confusing. When I got older I joined or as I said scouted out other Religions and wow did I. I was so confused I didn't know which end was up or down But I did know I loved God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. I went to Many Church's out here in Ca moving here in 1994. after giving up on so many Material things back home and my Faith Not God but my Background. So many different Church's You could be Baptized every Sunday. My Brain started spinning. I thought you only needed 1, well guess not. Oh I could sin and get Baptized cool! NOT COOL. So I joined another Church and well Things that were allowed was like I give up. I was brought up with 50 Thee Our fathers and 35 hail O" Mary's and all was forgotten and mind you I had only chewed gum in school and told my Mother I didn't do something when I did a big Mortal sin, Not good and Not true. My Children hated Church, My Husband Hated it even more and I was just confused but always searching for the true Church. But little did I know the crosses I would bear to get where I'm at.I never felt at home in any Church at all. I was involved with many different things Sports, Bible Studies then I dropped out of the world. I just couldn't find myself . I was on the Web and kept seeing I'm a Mormon, all the years of schooling didn't matter nothing mattered but finding the true Church to me . I realize I'm home now

Why I am a Mormon

Because it is finally my long hard Journey I have made through my life to Home I call it now. I have never in my Life seen such a Love for Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. When I'm down i'm never alone ever. I always Have Jesus with me, The Holy Ghost is something I have never felt before I always thought I did but so not true until now. They believe in the Atonement of Jesus Christ , I should say I do I forgot I'm a Mormon Now to didn't forget just it took me 56 1/2 years to get here and yes i'm of sound mind and soul. What an awesome thing to say that I belong to to the Restored Church of Jesus Christ , Its not fake its been truly a blessing to me. I just can't explain to you in a lot of words the feeling in side is such a peace I have never had before. I now put all my trust in the Lord and My Christian Church stands by my side as well there, there for you in a heart beat if you need them, That is what Jesus Christ is all about, Love, Trust, Faith, Honor and Keeping the Commandments of our Heavenly Father, Without Jesus Christ the Atonement would never be ever not for generations past or future. The Christians I'm around in this church is so awesome, they never ask why they just ask can I help you with anything and know its not a trained thing to do it is what the Lords will asks of us all. I love them all. The Missionary's are such loving and wonderful young men, If not for them I wouldn't be where I'm at today and the Sister's of Relief Society, Bishop as I have had to since becoming Mormon have come to my home that is un heard of,Everything has a purpose and a meaning in life my Life now has a meaning and has a fulfilled purpose in life, I pray that I as a Christian can only stand up and stay straight on the path that Jesus wants me to do. I thank God that He restored the Church through the Prophet Joseph Smith, We Pray to only one God the same God and we are Christians I testify this to be true in Jesus Christ Name Anem

How I live my faith

The Sabbath day is a very special day to me. I live by being clean as much as I can be, yes of course I sin we all do. I try and read daily and Pray and thank Heavenly Father for what I have, I pray for others and thank those whom do for me. Living by faith really isn't that hard. I was a heavy smoker 44 years I tried everything yes I even tried asking Jesus Christ who died for all of my sins. Didn't work. Finally one day I got down on my knees and Begged God to remove that filthy habit from me and Till this day June of 2012 my last smoke was October 6, 2011. I put all my faith in Heavenly Father He didn't answer me till I showed him where I was going to put my faith in him and him only. Till this day nobody can believe I quit smoking. My faith in Heavenly Father and the wisdom he has given me has been such an awesome journey. I try not to make excuses as to why I can't go to Church, Bible school, and to meet with all the women which is so awesome and full of love every Sunday, The Joy I get out this and the Holy Ghost is like I have never felt before. I receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ each week and it cleans me and makes me pure again this is my feeling I get ( Sacrament ) . I read online, listen to different things through LDS.org and Mormon.org . Just showing love to another is living by faith or Praying for another is living by faith. Oh How I love and his talks I get such peace especially when I'm down he talks of Jesus Christ and how he died for all our sins, how could we not try and follow what Jesus taught and what he died for. The Bible goes so wonderful with the Book of Mormon, I just wish I had done this sooner then 57 years of age but it wasn't my time and I know that now. I do everything by prayer and my life is so wonderful now. There are just to many things to explain what I try and do. Gods rewards are so wonderful. This is my first time I can honestly say I'm a Christian, look in the Mirror and it feels good.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

I as a Christian ( Mormon ) believe in the Atonement of Jesus Christ and by his Atonement , we are forgiven of our sins and saved, Baptism and confirmation is truly important, repentence of asking for forgiveness of your sins by the death and ressurection of Jesus Christ, we all are forgiven. We all have one Heavenly Father and one Jesus Christ and Holy Ghost, without this there wouldn't be an us, we, you or me. To live by Gods 10 commandments and many more written through out the Bible and Book of Mormon. God knows we aren't perfect as Jesus Christ was, that is why we have the Atonement of Jesus Christ. What an awesome wonderful thing Heavenly Father did for us, for the Devil tried to take all that away from us. But we the WORLD was save by Jesus Christ. The reason I say all of this is because i'm a convert and never had such peace when I pray and read. Remember this Both the Bible and Book of Mormon is the word of God and when you open it the devil squarms , when you read them he crawls, when you speak aloud he is back where he should be and were safe from the devil. Jesus Christ did this for all of us, Heavenly Father so loved us he gave his only begotten son Jesus Christ. If I don't read and follow through what I'm suppose to do, I can really tell. I love The Bible and The Book of Mormon what peace it brings me through the Atonement of Jesus Christ and his body and blood we recieve on Sabbath Day , so easy God made it for us Through easy steps In Jesus Name Amen Show more Show less
