Hi I'm Dorinda

I'm a Missionary; I'm confident I'm exactly where the Lord needs me; I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to read ALL kinds of books (especially Manga, can't get enough!): Eragon Inheritance series (i like Eldest the best), Harry Potter (Chamber of Secrets is my favorite), The Whipping Boy, A Great Good Thing, Bartimaues Series (can't spell... it's by Johnathan Stroud), etc... Fruits Basket (I'm the year of the bird~), Dengaki Daisy, Vampire Knights, Kimi Ni Todoke, Ouran High School, D.N. Angel, Library Wars, Love in the Mask (?), etc... I love TV shows as well: Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes, Merlin, Bones, Drop Dead Diva, How to Train Your Dragon, NCIS, Psych, Once Upon A Time, Avatar: The Last Airbender, etc... I'm a sucker for movies too... it's nice when there's something good on Netflix!: action, thriller, chick-flick, adventure, fantasy, sci-fi, super hero, etc... Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, X-Men, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, anything created by M. Night Shymalan (except Last Airbender...), Pirates of the Caribbean, Holiday, The Proposal, Run Away Bride, When You Were Sleeping, Courageous, Blind Side, Other Side of Heaven (or at least i think that's what it's called), Sweet Home Alabama, Penelope, 13 going on 30, She's The Man, Avengers, all the newer Batman movies (but it is a goal to watch all the old movies and shows too), Justice Leauge, Spiderman, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Wolverine, Fantastic 4, etc...

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) my whole life - and it's been difficult... but its worth it. There are SO many blessings when you serve others and stop thinking about yourself all the time. I love helping others - and that's what the church is all about: organized service done voluntarily, out of love! I want to share the happiness i've felt~

How I live my faith

I serve the Lord! Every day, every moment, every way I proselyte about Christ's Restored Church on the earth today; and I love it! Serving a Mission is hard some days, but always joyful, and i feel I'm exactly where i need to be~ I'm relying more and more on the Lord and becoming happier and happier - i LOVE being a Disciple of Christ~ I've recently picked up a new hobby - i LOVE serching the scriptures! They're so sacred, so precious; i love that God gave me the opprotunity to read them and seek truth for myself and thankfully i can make time for something so important~

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Dorinda
We proselyte volentarily, we are not paid, and we do not want to be - we have found something that makes us happy, and we want to share it~ Like those Health, Diet, or Excersise plans that everyone shares because "it works!", we share the gosple because it's something we've found for OURSELVES, taking no one's word for it, that works! We are happier with the gospel in our lives; simple as that. We know what we have is special, and we want to share it~ Show more Show less

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Dorinda
Yes, we have a Bible; a Bible that's been translated over and over, and changed over time. Even though most read from the same Bible, even then, people all seem to have their own intertpretation of the same scriptures. God didn't want us to be confused and lost in a spiritual darkness. Because He loves us, He gave us Another Testament of Christ, the Book Of Mormon. Joseph Smith did not write the Book of Mormon like the rumors say, rather, by the gift of God, he only translated it. The Book of Mormon, like the Bible, are journals written by Prophets and Apostles before and after Christ's minerstry. However, the Book of Mormon clarifies things in the Bible, and also reveales more truths to us. These truths are not new, they've always existed, but now, the Lord knows we're ready to know of these truths. The Book of Mormon is availible to EVERYONE! God loves us all, the Book of Mormon is a gift! The Book of Mormon is scripture sent from God. The Book of Mormon is truth. Don't take my word for it though, go read it for yourself! Then ask in a sincere prayer, if the Book of Mormon is sent from God. Show more Show less
