Hi I'm Berklie Hendricks

I grew up in New Mexico and am preparing to serve a mission in the West Indies, Trinidad Region. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Berklie and I have many hobbies. I love to read, write, draw, knit, play my violin and spend time with my friends. I graduated High School and am preparing for my mission. I live with both parents and have three younger brothers. As a family, we like to hike and spend time together.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, but the best way to know for yourself if its true is to read and study the Book of Mormon prayerfully as well as attend meetings and perform callings to the best of our ability. Often times I find that going to church and mission prep class are the best part of my week because its an escape from the world where I can feel the spirit and be with others who share my faith. I know the church is true as is the Book of Mormon, that Joseph Smith was a prophet who restored the church on earth, that Thomas S. Monson is our prophet today, and that if we continue to have faith in Christ, all things are possible.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the LDS church and currently have a calling as a chorister, directing music. I love attending all the classes and participating in the ward organized activities where we can grow closer as a ward and meet new people. I love attending Institute, our scripture study class for young adults, where we can better learn the scriptures and hear the testimonies of others to help strengthen our own.

Are Mormons Christians?

Berklie Hendricks
Mormon is a nickname given to the church because of our use of the Book of Mormon, but the true name of the church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The church is centered in Christ and his gospel teachings. The church strives to follow Christ's doctrine and invites others to come to Christ. Show more Show less
