Hi I'm Naomi Thompson

I run cross country and come from a big family. I enjoy music and art. My heart lives in the mountains. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to draw just with plain old pencils. I have a hunger for only good uplifting books. I play trombone in a band at school. Also I run cross country. Cross country has taught me a lot about hard work and determination. If I didn't have this I couldn't make it through the races. While I run I love to pray and talk to my heavenly father he gives me strength. My life is very busy but I still have time for my family. I have 5 younger bothers and sisters. Though how aggravating they can get I still love them. Other times they just crack me up!!!!! I used to live in Georgia in the mountains and loved it. So my love for nature is strong. I marvel at the beauty of the earth that has been given to us.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but I have accepted it on my own. I have had problems and trails in my life that seemed like I couldn't get over them. i prayed and asked the lord for help. He comforted me and sent me people who are very supportive. I feel his love when I make right choices. He has forgiven me for my wrongs. The holy spirit testifies to me of the love and sacrifice the lord has given me. When I have questions he answers me in his time but, in the right way.I notice in my life when I follow the commandments that everything seems to work out and blesses come in very helpful ways. It is hard to follow these commandments and live my standards in this world but I feel strength and love through my Father in heaven I know he watches over me,guides me, and loves me through every step of my life.

How I live my faith

I am the Mia maids president of my branch. I try and help girls come(member and non member) It is enjoyable to be in young womens program. I go to a committee meeting each month to help plan activities for the youth in my area. Each week I go to Wednesday night activities and church on Sunday. I try helping others to go to activities and church. I love when we have new people come. My hope is that they are comfortable and happy. I also try and do genealogy for my family. It is sometimes hard because lots of that work has been done by other family members. But, I try to preserver in my searches. I have also accepted the gospel and been baptized. The lord blesses me every day for my faithfulness in the covenants I have made.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Naomi Thompson
In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints we believe in the Word of Wisdom. This is a promise to us if we refrain from doing drugs, drinking:coffee,tea,and alcohol, and we will eat good foods for our bodies that we will be blessed. Our bodies are a gift from heavenly father for us to have. To respect or gift from God we follow this law. It is for our overall well being. Show more Show less
