Hi I'm Joy Butcher

I live in Norfolk. Am a wife and mother to 4 children. I enjoy handicrafts and being creative. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am blessed to have a husband who believes the same as me and attends church with me. I work part-time and work with a few other Mormons. I love spending time with my family and we enjoy being together. We have dog who gives us much opportunity for exercise. She adds to our quality of life. I was born into the church and enjoyed learning the gospel as a young child. I started to build my testimony while I was young and it has grown a little at a time. Now I am older my testimony is still growing and I am still learning about how to live like Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it guides me in my life, it give me peace and makes me feel happy. I know that Jesus Christ loves me and has provided a way for me to return and live with Him again. I know we have prophet here on the earth today just as it was in the Bible times.And Jesus Christ leads His church today through his prophet Thomas S Monson.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow Jesus Christ. I have had many blessings as a member of the church. It has helped me to develop talents that I didn't think I had. I am quite a shy and quiet person and happy to stay out of the lime light, but some of the responsibilities have taken me out of my comfort zone and stretched me. I have taught the youth in the Scripture study program we have. This has been a particular learning experience for me and I know I have grown as a result of this.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Joy Butcher
God is all powerful and perfect and very wise. He created this earth that we are living on and looks the same as us.His body is immortal and glorified. Because we are His children, He knows and loves each one of us. He has a plan that will help us to find happiness in this life and return and live with Him when this life is over. Show more Show less
