Hi I'm Sheena-Ann Brown

I've been a member since 1 March 1974. I found the Church through the example of The Osmonds, singing family, in 1974.

About Me

Hi there! My name is Sheena-Ann and I am a member of the Church in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland. I currently serve as the Ward Music Chairman. I am married. I am a fulltime carer for my husband. Recently I took part in the very first British Pageant at the Preston Temple site in Chorely. The first week I was in the choir and the second week I was in the Family Cast. It was the experience of a lifetime and faith promoting and life-changing. I learned a lot about myself and my personal faith. The Pageant strengthened my faith and helped me see how the British people were vital to the existance of the the Church worldwide. It's not just an 'American religion'. http://youtu.be/qExA8G34Dmw I love anything to do with music and theatre. I also love photography. https://www.facebook.com/SheenaAnnBrownPhotography I dont claim to be amazing, but I love taking photos of landscapes, especially beaches and sunsets and sunrises. I use a pocket camera, so I'm no David Bailey!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a 'Mormon' (nick-name for a member of the Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints - yes I'm a CHRISTIAN!) because my faith answers the fundamental questions we all ask - where did I come from, who I am, why I am here and where I am going after I die. My faith has helped me to develop a personal relationship as a daughter to my Heavenly Father who loves me, and I love Him. I know who I am, what I can become, and where I am going in life. My faith encourages me to become all I can be, no matter where I am on this earth, or what Branch or Ward of the Church I attend. I know that if I achieve all I can be that someday I can live with my Heavenly Father again. I can't think of anything more beautiful than knowing I can have my family with me after I die, for all eternity, rather than 'till death we do part'. (If you love someone - you want to be with them forever, not just for the here and now!) I know that God has a plan for me and each of my family an that He, as a parent, wants what is best for us. I know that he is just and kind, and merciful and helps me overcome my mistakes rather than condemning me for them, if I repent when I do wrong. I know that this is God's Church here on this earth. He hasn't forgotten us or turned His back on us. We are able to receive revelation and I would challenge anyone reading this to pray and ask if this is true or not - just like it says in the Bible in James 1:5 - "If anyone lack wisdom - let him ask of God, that give to all men liberally and upbraideth not, an it shall be given him" Try it and see - what have you got to lose?

How I live my faith

I have a testimony that we have a Heavnly Father (God) who lives,... and loves us. He has not left us alone to fend for ourselves and He wants us to return to Him, therefore He provided us with a Saviour - his Son (our elder brother) Jesus Christ. I also believe that he did not leave us alone and that we can receive revelation and that he has given us Prophets to guide and direct us, even in these days. I do not believe that His work is done and that he has gone off and neglected us! I believe that families can be together forever and that He has provided Temple ordinances for us to do so, and to provide instruction for our eternal welfare. I believe the Book of Mormon has been made available to us for our day, to act as a companion to the Bible and a second witness of Jesus Christ. I am a CHRISTIAN. I believe in Christ as my Saviour and as the head of our Church. I am thankful for this knowledge and my testimony. I am grateful for my family and for the knowledge that we can be reunited after we die. It is the peace, and joy, that fills my life! Nobody in our Church is paid for their service. We serve freely because we love our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and see eternal potential in our fellow men.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Sheena-Ann Brown
The Bible is the Word of God and we use it in companionship with The Book of Mormon. One testifies of the other and used in companionship they act as witnesses of each other and strengthen messages given in each. The Bible is every bit as Sacred to us as the Book of Mormon. One does not take the place of the other. Both came from the writings of Holy men as moved upon by the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less
