Hi I'm Valerie

Hi I am a Mormon, I am a convert I was baptized almost eight years ago I was raised atheist...

About Me

Hi =)! I'm Valerie a 27 yr old single mother and a convert lol, My journey began in a lot of places I was raised by my Father, my parents were divorced my mother is schizophrenic and so she couldn't really raise me but she was around My father stopped believing in God along time before I was born I was raised atheist, when I was a girl I used to get in fights all the time because we didn't believe in God My dad let me choose my own religion when I was 10 I chose Wicca , I lived by impulse and not decision all my life going with what felt best to me at the time I drank, used drugs, was active and I hated my life before I was an adult I begged for the courage to end it everyday I felt like I was just there not living I felt already dead in my body. I hit rock bottom and I decided to take my own life as I walked toward a bridge as I was walking I stopped in front of a lil baptist church that had paid my rent one time and looked up, I said I dont know what to do here why am I stopping I dont even believe in you or "God" I thought fast and saw everything I did believe in Drugs, sex, Lies, Pain and saw the church and said ok everything else hasnt worked try God and if that dosent work then kill yourself, harsh I know but I was harsh I looked up I and said okay and I started to walk towards the church and as I went to opened the door I thought light would shine down or something like that but no the door was locked and I broke down to my knees and cried along time from my chest..

Why I am a Mormon

well as my story goes on I actually asked God to show me the true church and I was. over and over again lol I am the kinda person that needs confirmation over and over again I am kinda a skeptic because of how I was raised so I prayed and asked alloud over and over and have got the same answer this is his church I know this.

How I live my faith

I am not perfect I used to think belonging to the church meant I had to be, but its just the opposite because I am broken and not perfect I need the church so much more I need Jesus and Heavenly Father more than anything in this world I can not do anything without them I am a sinner I need help I stay as close to them as I possibly can and know the difference between faith and hope, Jesus said by faith alone we are saved pray to him and Heavenly Father in Faith kno that they will hear you and help you and love you they will, they do.
