Hi I'm Jennifer Stout

I am from Georgia. I love to dance and play soccer. I'm serving a mission in Barcelona, Spain and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jennifer Stout. I am on a mission in Barcelona Spain. I am from Hiram, Georgia. I love doing any kind of dance. I like playing soccer, trying to cook food without burning it, and reading cute love stories. I love finding joy in the journey. Spontaneous moments are my favorite kind of moments. I love laughing and my favorite thing is being with my family. My name is Jennifer and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member because I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints is the true church. I love knowing who I am and where I am going. I know who I am, I am a child of God. I know that families can be together forever through His plan. I know that we have a prophet today that leads and guides us today. I am a Mormon because I want to live in a way that people know Christ through me. I know this is the true Gospel and the Book of Mormon is a true testament of Jesus Christ. I know the atonement in infinite. No matter how far down you are down the wrong path there i always a way to come back. The way back may be hard but it is worth it. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a member of the true church and I want everyone to be able to receive of the blessings that are offered.

How I live my faith

I attend church each week where I am able to learn more about Christ. I love having the opportunity to serve others. Right now I am serving as a missionary for 18 months which permits me from talking to my family and friends everyday but it allows me to serve God will all of my heart. I get to find people who are searching for happiness and bring it to them.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Jennifer Stout
The bible is the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. The Bible contains important teachings from prophets and talks about the life of Christ. The bible though, contains doctorine that is not the full truth. It may have been left out through the many years of translating through different scholars. We now have the Book of Mormon which is another testament of Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon. As well as translating the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith also added the Joseph Smith Translation to the bible which clarifies some of the verses of the bible and makes them more correct. As Mormons we read the bible to learn about the life of Christ but we focus a lot on the Book of Mormon because the translation came directly from God through Joseph Smith. Through the Book of Mormon we learn more teachings from Christ throught the people that were in the Americas in the time of the Bible. Show more Show less
