Hi I'm Neve

Born and raised in Derby, England. Love family, friends, the England rugby team and Harry Potter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have graduated from university with a law degree and have also completed post graduate studies. I studied for 4 years in total at university which was an amazing experience. I then experienced working in a criminal law firm for 8 months which I really enjoyed. I love sports and play hockey with my local team, I play centre forward so love scoring goals. I just generally enjoy being part of a team and the cameraderie that is involved. I also love watching rugby and support Leicester Tigers and of course love watching my England team. I have two brothers and a sister, they are all my best friends. I enjoy music, reading (especially Harry Potter), dancing and spending time with all my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

It makes me very happy and makes me feel at peace which is sometimes difficult in this fast paced life. As I have followed the priciples I have been taught I have felt happiness, peace and hope despite what challenges I may have had to face. My parents joined the church when they were teenagers and I have been brought up and raised in the church. I have had to come to know for myself whether I believe in Jesus Christ and the restoration of the gospel through the prophet Joseph Smith. As I have studied the scriptures and prayed daily I have come to know for myself that it is true and I havent looked back since.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday. I also attend a class every thursday night for all single adults between the age of 18-30. I help with the organisation of this class and with other social activities for people of this age group within the area. On Sundays I am asked every month to prepare a lesson to teach to the other women attending. I am assigned to visit other women in my area once every month to provide support and help where needed. This is always a really lovely experience as you become really close to these women where you may not have known them as well preiously.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Neve
No we do not worship Joseph Smith. We worship God, our Heavenly Father and His Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. We revere Joseph Smith as the prophet who restored the gospel of Jesus Christ, in its fullness back to the earth as it was when Jesus Christ himself established the church during his mortal ministry. The prophet Joseph Smith sacrificed so much to restore the gospel as it is today and eventually made the ultimate sacrifice in giving his life for this cause. We respect him and reverence him for what he has done for the Lord's church and the Lord's people. Show more Show less
