Hi I'm Ilana

My name is Ilana. I love meeting people, laughing and stargazing. I'm a mormon

About Me

I like to be outside rockclimbing, running, swimming or just enjoying the sunshine. I also like to dance (ballet, modern, jazz and tap). i just finished two years of college.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the things i have learned at church have helped me understand that I am an eternal being who is meant to become something great. My Savior Jesus Christ has changed me so much already. His infinite love and purifying Spirit has blessed my life so much. There is an undeniable goodness that i feel whenever I learn more about Him; it brings a happiness to my life that I haven't been able to match with anything else. I'm also a Mormon because hearing the words and advice of living apostles and prophets helps me come closer to and become more like the Savior. The testimonies of living apostles and prophets are so awesome!! i have no doubt they are men of God. I'm a mormon because I know through the Gospel of Jesus Christ I can become clean and become a better person for the people I care about and return to be with God again.

How I live my faith

I love going to church and getting closer to people who help me follow the Savior.I am involved with my church finding people who are struggling spiritually or people who are interested in the gospel. I am about to leave home for 18 months to share my beliefs with other people as a full time missionary. I'm super excited!!

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

We believe that it is by the Grace of our Savior Jesus Christ that we are saved from our sins and shortcomings and are purified. We access His Grace by obeying Him and and coming to Him with humble, contrite hearts. We must do all that we can do for our part, but we need His Grace to even do that. Show more Show less
