Hi I'm Aileen

I grew up in Lanark, Scotland.

About Me

I have been an member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for 60 years and I've met some of the most wonderful people in the world. I have met two of the living Prophets and some of the Apostles.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church while I worked as a nurse. A colleague that I worked with, whose son was dying of meningitis as there was no cure then. Her son lived for 8 months and there was nothing that could be done for him. He had blessings from members of the Mormon church which helped to strengthen him. I had never heard of the Mormons before this and I was curious about it. I promised my colleague that I would go along with her to church. I finally went along and met the missionaries who taught me the truths of the gospel. The restoration of the gospel was the thing that made me feel that what they spoke was the truth. I could feel it in my heart. I was baptised a few months later and I have never doubted the truthfulness of the gospel in the last 60 years. The organisation of the church is perfect but everyone in the gospel is trying to help each other to get back to Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

I try to live the way the Saviour, Jesus Christ would have me live and try to be a good example to people that I meet. I read the scriptures and pray each day and I know God lives and Jesus is the Christ. I know this is true.
