Hi I'm Pamela Deaton

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 23 years old, I am a wife, a full time student and part time worker. I love to read, play sports, and spend time with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have gained a testimony that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I fervently prayed and searched to find the truth about who I am and why I am here. While learning about the plan of salvation, the importance of temples, prophets and families, I felt like I had finally received the answers I was waiting for. Everything made sense and it gave me great joy to have obtained such great knowledge. I couldn't wait to share it! After much opposition from my family, I was baptized. Since then, my testimony of the church has grown, I have felt closer to my Savior and have learned to recognize the great love that Heavenly Father has for me. My bond with my family has grown stronger even though I am the only member in the family. I know that Jesus Christ is my redeemer. I know He gave His life because He loves us so much and He wants us to once again live with Him and with Heavenly Father. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he saw the Father and the Son and was guided to find and translate the Book of Mormon. I know that today we have a true and living prophet that loves us and guides us. I know that I can be sealed with my family and live with them forever. And because I know, I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the little things. I pray often, read my scriptures daily, attend the temple weekly with my husband, and look for opportunities to help others. I enjoy sharing my testimony and teaching others about the great love that our Savior has for us.
