Hi I'm Lily May

Hello I grew up in Warrington, England. I was brought up in the Roman Catholic Church. I was baptised June 25th 2012.

About Me

Hello, my name is Lily May I am 18 years old. I was brought up into the Roman Catholic Church, I stopped going to church when I was 11/12. I was baptised in the church of Jesus Christ, June 25th 2012. I was a musical theatre student training at a college in Essex. But for certain reasons I had to return back to my family in Warrington UK. I am an ordinary teenager who just believes in Religion. Who struggles and has trials like everybody else. I am no different to anybody else. I don't look down on anyone who isn't a member and I don't judge members who make mistakes. I make mistakes. Huge mistakes. I like to sing act, dance and go to the gym. I have a disabled mother, an older brother and a younger sister. All members but my brother. I have always wore a purity ring from the age of 12. I have always knew God existed. But only since joining this Church have I started appreciating it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love knowing I am in the true Church, and living my life the way I should be living it. Being a convert I know what it is like to not have the Church in my life. And I can not only see but feel a difference in what it is like to not have the help of Heavenly Father. Every seminary lessons have, every conference, tea appointments, lessons I have, and youth activities. I feel enlightened more and more and my testimony grows stronger and stronger. I was nervous to start college and to tell people I was a Mormon, and nobody was even bothered. People just had questions and wanted to know more. I worry for what my old friends think and whether they think it's silly, but I have changed for the better and I love who I am now. :)

How I live my faith

I am part of young women's,seminary and I attend church every Sunday. If i go a day without praying or not going to church i fell at a loss, and it isn't a mice feeling. I am a normal teenager who struggles with the temptation at parties to drink. It is very very hard and I sometimes have given in. But I repent and feel a lot better. I love knowing I have the chance to be forgiven and my sins are clear, even taking sacrament every week is such a blessing to me. As I know being a teenager and a convert I do make mistakes. I look back to the person I was and I don't like who I was. I love who i am now and being part of this church. I am currently saving up to be able to go on a mission. I can't wait to be able to teach people and give them the chance to be baptised. Just thinking about it makes my heart tingle and gives my stomach butterflies.
