Hi I'm Teri Brown

I grew up in New Hampshire, USA. I'm just trying to be like Jesus. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I reached my goal of being married in the temple to the man of my dreams. The road to get there wasn't easy, but it has been and will be worth it. I enjoy reading, making friendship bracelets and jewelry, learning, day trips, keeping in contact with family, watching movies, and spending quality time with my husband. My darling object is to be a good mother.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church and baptized when I was 8, just like many other Latter-day Saints, but I didn't gain a firm testimony until I was 15. I don't remember my conviction coming in one event. It must've been years of studying the scriptures and going to church that made me realize that I didn't want to be anywhere else. It's a good thing I did gain this conviction because I faced many trials and temptations in high school. It wasn't always easy to do what I knew was right, but I'm glad I knew what was right. I'm glad Heavenly Father loves us enough to have given us the means to return back to Him.

How I live my faith

Besides church activities and obligations, I'm a cub scout leader.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Teri Brown
As a woman, when I hear the term "equality of men and women", what I think of is that men and women are equally important to our Heavenly Father. Men and women have different abilities and traits, just like one woman has different abilities and traits than another woman. Show more Show less
