Hi I'm Netta

I grew up in Philadelphia. I grew up in the projects in North Philly.

About Me

Hi my name is Netta. I was raised in a family that was not very religious. I always had a hunger to get to know my Heavenly Father. I was abused as a child both physically and sexually. I turned to drugs at a very young age. I thought there was no purpose for me and that I must have been a awful person for God to let me be abused. I became addicted to drugs and the lifestyle that came with it. One day I saw a commercial on TV saying that the Book of Mormon was another testament of Jesus Christ well I called the number and the missionaries showed up on my doorstep. Well I was still in active addiction and really had not expected to get a visit I thought the book would come in the mail,but I was curious about what they had to say. They told me of a God that loved me no matter where I was in my life he wanted me to come to him. They taught me the new member lessons and the spirit manifested to me the truthfulness of what they were telling me. I was baptized in 1995. I know today that my God loves me and accepts me as his daughter no matter how unworthy I may feel at this moment. I am no different than any other addict who struggles with addiction, but today I know that I can accomplish all things through Christ who strengthens me. This gospel has given me a God who will never forsake me or leave me and who helps me stay clean one day at a time.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe with all my heart that this gospel is true, that this is the lords church. That this gospel answers all the questions that went unanswered for me for so long

How I live my faith

I attend sacrament on a regular basis. I continue to learn more of the love that the savior and Heavenly Father has for me and how I can make it back to Heavenly Father.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

The church teaches that the Bible is still scripture and so is the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is a companion to the Bible and it teaches nothing contrary to what is in the Bible. Show more Show less
