Hi I'm Stella

I live in Hampshire and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I joined the Church, along with my husband, in 1983 after we were found by the Missionaries. I have a wonderful husband who works hard to take care of us. We are blessed to have four grown up children and nine grandchildren ages 9 years to 6 weeks old.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because one day in 1983 two Missionaries knocked on our door! I know that Jesus Christ is lives and leads and directs His Church on the earth , which is The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints. He is the Saviour of this world . He created this world under the direction of our Heavenly Father. Their work is to gather all who will come into His Church to bring them back to our Heavenly Father one day. I know the Book of Mormon is true , the Prophet Joseph Smith was chosen by Jesus Christ to be the Prophet to restore his Church to the earth again and that Jesus Christ is gathering his children together in preparation for his return in glory. The Prophet and president of the Church today is President Thomas S. Monson and together with the 12 Apostles we have great leaders who we can trust to lead and guide us. I know these things are true because I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me and seen the blessings in my life and in the lives of my family and friends over the past thirty years. You can know these thing are true for yourself if you desire to know.

How I live my faith

I pray to my Father in Heaven every morning and night and whenever I need to. This helps me to feel comforted if I am worried and focus on what He wants me to do. Prayer also helps me to prioritise things and get direction in my life. I know my Father in Heaven loves me because he answers my prayers. I try to study the Book of Mormon each day because when I do I strengthen my knowledge of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ's love for me. I hope I can share my testimony with others and I am working on that more as I know they will be happier and safer too if they can know for themselves that this Church is true. At the moment I am a teacher in the womens organization in the church. I love to research my Family Tree and add to it. I use the Church website which is "Family Search" and also the " Ancestry ". Doing this has brought our living family closer together.
