Hi I'm Theresa

I love peanut butter, public speaking is my favorite, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Currently I am serving in the Australia Brisbane Mission (aka Australia's Best Mission!) for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Music is a big love of mine and I play the piano. My favorite things to do are spend time with the people that I love and public speaking.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the Book of Mormon and believe every word included in it. I love reading all the words of Christ contained in all the scriptures; The Book of Mormon, the Bible, the Pearl of Great Price, and the Doctrine and Covenants. The spirit testifies to me that these words are true. I know my Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ love me and I know that this is their Church. I want to make them proud so I live the commandments that they have laid out for me. I mess up, but I trust in my Savior and his atonement so I can repent and start over clean. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. I teach lessons some Sundays in my student ward to the women. I also visit teach the women in my ward. Right now I am preparing to serve an 18 month mission for the Church.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Theresa
No. The Church does not endorse any specific political party. The Church is politically neutral and does not tell its members what to believe or follow politically. The Church does, however, encourage its members to be involved in the community politically whether to run for office, volunteer, voice your opinion or simply just to vote, and they can side with any political party or ideology that they choose. I am involved politically in my community with my own personal opinions, and every member can and is encouraged to do the same. Show more Show less

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Theresa
As a missionary, I say contact the missionaries! We are here to help you! We can help you in your process of striving to live the words of Christ and follow His example. We can teach you all that there is to know about the Mormon Church and answer any questions you may have. After you have prayed asking Heavenly Father of the truthfulness of the restored gospel and recieved confirmation that it is true, we can help you prepare to be baptized and given the Gift of the Holy Ghost. These ordinances need to be done by those who have the priesthood authority of God. Remember if you need any help or have any questions at all, ask the missionaries! Show more Show less
