Hi I'm C.J.

I am a Mormon, I am a wife and mother, who at this time is taking care of my elderly father-in-law. I am new to the church.

About Me

Hello, I'm a new Mormon. However I'm not new to loving God. I am married and have a grown daughter and two grand children. I love animals and wish there was more I could do for them. I love our Earth. I love my country. I love my husband and family. I love life and all my friends. I'm a peace loving person who only wants the best for everyone.

Why I am a Mormon

I've always be-leaved in God, but I didn't live for him, until recently. I was living in abundant sin until I met my current husband. He took me away from all that, and introduced me to the Church of Jesus Christ of later Day Saints. But I still didn't join for years, I just wan't ready. Then about 3 months ago some missionaries came over to see me, ME of all people. Right away I could feel the lord all around them. For some reason I suddenly said" I want to be baptized". This made my guests very happy and I was elated. They began to teach me about the church and the words of the book of Mormon. Every time they were here I was left with a feeling of joy and great peace. I began to see that every time I read the book of Mormon I would feel at home and very relaxed, as though God was talking directly to me. Soon came the day of my baptism and that was filled with love and I got a lot of much needed attention. I came away from there just oozing with a happiness I had never known. The peace in my heart was total and overwhelming. It was that day that I knew that this church was true, that what they had taught me about Joesph Smith was true, and that he was a true prophet. I also knew that the love I was feeling from the people in this church was true. My life has only gotten better and better because of my experiences with these people and this church. I thought I was close to God before but now I can't wait to pray cause I know he hears me and loves me. The love I feel from him now is everlasting and so sweet. I also know that my missionaries have been given the power to speak for God and I know what they say is true. My house just fills with love and peace when ever they come over to teach me, I wait at the door to see them cause I know the rest of my day will be a joy. If you want happiness, come to the lord cause he gives it best and everlasting. I look forward to new members cause I remember so well how surprised I was to feel all those things. God Bless.

How I live my faith

I go to Church every Sunday I pray several times a day. I try my best not to sin and to always show respect and love for others. My husband and father-in-law were raised in this religion whom I live with, so I have good examples around me all the time. I read my scriptures when ever I can, at least once a day. I do my best to pray for those who do not share my happiness and tender heart.
