Hi I'm Celeste

I love music, I'm the youngest of five kids, I have a pet hedgehog and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Mormon. I love praising my Heavenly Father by playing and listening to uplifting music. My favorite color is yellow and I have a pet hedgehog. I enjoy reading, writing, and art.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is real. This gospel truly is "good news" and brings happiness, hope, and joy wherever it is brought. I've seen it for myself in my life and the lives of those around me, and I never want to lose that.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always standing as a witness of Jesus Christ. To me that means living as He did: forgiving quickly, giving freely, speaking kindly, thinking righteously, defending His name, and feeding His sheep.

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

Celeste
The Atonement is the beautiful, selfless sacrifice Jesus Christ made for each and every one of us when He gave His life for us. This sacrifice was made necessary by the fact that we are imperfect beings constantly being stained by an imperfect world. When He suffered and died for us, He not only made it possible for us to be made clean through repentance and live with our Heavenly Father again, but He also made it possible for us to receive strength and comfort to be able to resist the temptations of the devil and find peace in this lifetime.
