Hi I'm Roshene

Im from the beautiful island of Jamaica. I am a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father, I am a wife & I'm a Mormon :)

About Me

I'm from the Caribbean, so I'm surrounded by beautiful beaches and lovely sand! Well, i pretty much grew up in the church so i baptized at eight (one of the best CHOICES i have made). I'm a young talented, fun-loving, caring person who loves people and care very much about them. I loove being happy and seeing others happy :D I love God and His Son Jesus Christ♥ I delight in doing good and i LOVE the gospel with all my heart. I love my family dearly. I'm a wife (i loove my husband he is my bestfriend) and a future mother.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the Church, because its the Lords church on the earth today, it teaches the gospel of Jesus Christ. I had the privilege to grow up in the church. My mother & I were the only members in my family. She taught me the principles of the gospel from a young age. But I have been able to have my OWN testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. I have come to know for myself that the church is true, by faith, searching the scriptures & then living it. I have seen how it makes me a better person. I am who I am today because of the gospel. I know that if make mistake (& I don't always make the best choices) but I can repent & be forgiven by a loving Heavenly Father. The gospel teaches & answers the most important questions in life, where did I come from? why am I here and where do I go after this life? It teaches me principles that I may know how to govern myself. Especially with the moral decay in the world, I am able to be in the world but not off the world. The gospel makes me a happier & better daughter of God. I know I am loved & I know I'm mindful of. The gospel that we declare is so perfect, its the same church that Christ himself organised when he was on the earth, all truths pertaining to the kingdom of God is accessible in the church. It teaches that families can be together forever & are intended to last forever. What a wonderful doctrine! When i was younger with what the world teaches i couldn't understand why a loving God would make us join bonds of families & it ends at death. The gospel just makes so much sense! Jesus Christ came to redeem all men from the sins of this life, if only we repent. He lived an exemplary life full of goodness & kindness, always doing His Fathers will. What a noble work & I'm happy to be apart of it. I'm so happy to know these things. The heavens are not closed & God hears & answers my prayers. That what the gospel is for me it is hope, it is peace. I know who I am, I am a child of God with such great potential♥!

How I live my faith

★I live my faith by striving day by day to become a better person★ I strive to keep the commandments.I read my scriptures regularly, i have my individual and family prayers. I attend church every Sunday and strive ever more to remain worthy to partake of the sacrament in remembrance of my Savior, Jesus Christ. And I strive to be an example and to stand for Christ at all times, in all things and in all places. I am the president of a wonderful organization of women called Relief Society; where our purposes are to help increase faith and personal righteousness, strengthen families and homes, and help those that are in need. This has helped me to be like my Saviour in serving others with love and has strengthened by testimony of Jesus Christ. I know that "when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God." (Mosiah 2:17)

What is being a Mormon like?

Roshene
Its AWESOME! Its WONDERFUL! It has been a such a BLESSING! I love being a member of The Church Of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints! I wouldn't trade it for the world. The gospel makes me so happy, so happy to know that Heavenly Father loves me and knows who i am and He has a purpose for me. Im happy to know that I am led by latter- day revelation, being Mormon gives me so much hope and the ability to look at the blessings amidst life challenges. There is a peace and joy that comes with following and living the teachings of Jesus Christ that can never be had anywhere else. I'm so happy to be a Mormon. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Roshene
We are definately Christians, we are dedicated followers of Jesus Christ. " And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ" 2 Nephi 25: 26. All that the gospel teaches and all that we believe is centered around Jesus Christ. He is the head of our church and we strive to become more like Him each day. We are not perfect people but we strive to be like our Saviour and Redeemer, Jesus Christ. How grateful I am to be a follower of Christ. Show more Show less
