Hi I'm Bethany

I love to music and singing, I love laughing and making others laugh, I believe in fully enjoying everything, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hello! I'm Beth. A little about me, I love to sing, and I love to listen to music. I also believe that anything can be fun if you make it fun! I love to have fun. I am currently serving a mission in the Mississippi, Jackson mission and I am loving every bit of it! We spend our days teaching people who want to grow closer to Christ. I have grown to love my Savior and Redeemer, and understand the sacrifice that He made for me, and I am so grateful for it. I have grown to love my scriptures and dive into them! I love my church and how accepting everyone is of me. I am serving my Lord every day, every minute and every second! I am so grateful to be out here in the South, serving the wonderful people and admiring their faith!

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints, and the reason I continue to be is because I have been told by the Holy Spirit that this is the true church, and this is where I belong. I have gone through many trials, which have proved to me more and more how important and true this church is. I have a testimony that Joseph Smith is a true prophet, and he was put on this Earth to guide and lead the way. I know that Jesus and Heavenly Father live, and that I will see them and many others again someday. I love the Book of Mormon, and each time I read it, I am filled with peace and comfort, and feel His love for me. I know Heavenly Father has a special plan for me, as He does with all of His children, and if I just have faith, and follow that plan, I will be happy forever. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I don't just live my faith, I show my faith. On my mission, my companion and I spend our whole day meeting new people to teach the Gospel to! Most people just look at us like, "What the heck are you doing?! It's flippin hot outside!" But that's just us showing our faith and diligence, because this is what makes us happy, and we want to make others happy! By reading my scriptures and praying every day, I can feel that happiness.

What is the Relief Society?

Bethany
Relief Society is a class during church where all the women go to feel the Spirit and strengthen each other through lessons, and discussions. It is for women of 18 years and older, so that they can help strengthen their families and homes, and build faith, and rely on each other when they are in need. It is where you can go to help to know how to properly live as a righteous lady, mother and wife. Show more Show less

What are some of the ways that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps those around the world?

Bethany
The gospel teaches us that people should bear one another's burdens. We take this to heart, and are doing our best to serve others in anyway we can, because we love and care about everyone. When there are major disasters around the world, the church sends out whatever we can to help, for example, supplies, volunteers to clean up the mess, shelters. We also send out missionaries to help those who are searching for the gospel all around the world can find the gospel and be taught. We help with funds, supplies, food, and we also can help begin small business enterprises in someone's own home. Show more Show less
