Hi I'm Raini Stock

I am currently serving as an LDS missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was in college at BYU-I until I decided to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am currently serving in the Colorado, Colorado Springs Mission (CCSM) and it is the best mission ever! I entered the MTC April 23, 2014 and haven't regretted it a day since! I love playing my clarinet and the piano. I love food. I love Hunger Games and Harry Potter. Panda's are the best animal ever created.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it gives me hope for more. It allows me to know there is such a thing as "happily ever after". I always know that no matter what I am going through, Jesus went through it too. I have become a better, happier, more mature person from being a Mormon. I am never alone and always loved. I always have someone too talk to through my trials. I am also Mormon because this is the absolute, 100% true church. If you knew something was true, wouldn't you live it too?

How I live my faith

I strive to live the commandments. I attend all church meetings every Sunday. I try to serve others when I am asked too or just for fun. I am serving a mission. I do all I can to put God as my priority, not man. If there is anything you should know, I am not just a member of this church on Sunday's... I am a member all day, every day.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Raini Stock
Joseph Smith was a modern-day prophet used to RESTORE the true church. He didn't make the church up on his own, nor use any other sources to start it other than Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. With their influence and power we have the same church Christ once had on the Earth and the Priesthood authority, never to be removed from the Earth again. With the Priesthood, men can act in God's name using his power and authority. We do not worship Joseph Smith, we only love him and honor him for the act he did of bringing us our church back and doing so while suffering much unnecessary persecution from unbelievers of all kinds.
