Hi I'm Deborah Seaman

I'm a ceramic artist, I'm a missionary, I choose to act Today, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Northern California with a huge family. I have 5 step siblings, 2 whole siblings, and 5 half siblings, and I love them all! I discovered my love and talent for art at a young age, but really started getting into it when I got into college. I took a ceramics class and decided that's what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Right now I'm on a mission for the church in South Carolina, and I wouldn't be anywhere else right now.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon, because that's what my parents believed, but since then I have found my own knowledge that it is the true gospel. We are not all converts from one church to the LDS faith, but we should all find our own conversion, our own testimony that what we believe and are living is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by bearing my testimony every day, to pretty much everyone that I meet. I'm on a volunteer mission, for the church, for 18 months and I get to share the one thing that has changed my life the most, the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is a scripture that I love that says, "Choose ye this day whom ye will serve, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." I each day I choose to serve the Lord, not tomorrow, not someday, but that day. I serve Him because I love Him, and I serve His children for the same reason.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Deborah Seaman
Mormon women are strong and courageous. We know that we are daughters of our Heavenly Father and that He loves us as we love Him. We are taught that when we are virtuous our worth is far above rubies, and we strive to keep the highest of standards to show the world that we understand that worth. We believe that men and women are equal in the eyes of the Lord. We were created to be equal partners in marriage and in caring for our families. We do have different roles to play, but they are both equal and sacred roles, both of which need to be fulfilled. Show more Show less
