Hi I'm Judith

I was born in England and joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Say Saints when I was 34. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I retired 5 years ago. I worked in England as a social worker and loved my job. I have 4 children and was a single Mom from the age of 48. I love the gospel. I love to read and I keep a journal every day. I love to walk in the outdoors and love the mountains and the sea. My friends are very important to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought up a Methodist and went to church until I was a teenager when I decided I did not believe in God. When I was 30 the missionaries came to my door. They taught me the gospel and I cried when they visited. Later I realised that was the spirit witnessing it was true. The missionaries encouraged me to pray. This was hard as I was not sure God existed but decided to put it to the test as I could not lose out either way. When I prayed, a sweet feeling came in to my heart and I knew that God had answered my prayer. I was baptised and thought I would feel so different. I did not and that upset me. I went to church on the Sunday after my baptism and I was crying and asking God why I did not feel any different and the spirit spoke to me in my mind "Don't expect blessings just to come to you, you do the right thing and then the blessings will come" I never looked back after that. I have kept the commandments and the Lord has blessed me. The gospel does not guarantee freedom from problems but as we live the commandments, we are blessed with the love of the Lord in our life and the continual guidance from the Holy Spirit.

How I live my faith

I have had many responsibilities in the church and teaching is one of my favourite callings. Currently I am teaching an adult Sunday school class. I also visit sisters in the church every month to see if they need any help and also share with them a spiritual message. I also research my family history every week and I love going to the Temple.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

We worship Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith is His prophet who was called by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ to restore the Church of Jesus Christ to the earth. We revere him as a prophet who did an amazing work.. Show more Show less
