Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it is church that I feel I can be closest to my Heavenly Father. I believe that The Church Of Jesus Christ is the restored Gospel on the earth today.I am incredibly grateful for the high standards of Christ centered living that my LDS community tries diligently to live. I am surrounded with service oriented people that Love Jesus Christ. In a world where Christian values are fading and religious freedom is challenged, I am increasingly aware of how important it is to follow the Savior and his example. I Love the gospel. I strive to Live the Gospel. I Love Jesus Christ. I am humbled that he should care for me enough to die for me. in the words of a Hymn. Oh it is wonderful...Wonderful to me.

How I live my faith

I am a Teacher at our elementary school. I also teach a dance and singing group. At church I teach the all women class on Sunday. I also have a few women in the area that I visit and look out for on a monthly basis. I try to dedicate myself to my faith each day by starting my day with a prayer and finding small ways each day to serve and share kindness. I find that the best way to be a disciple of Christ is to live his word and share his light with others. By serving in my community I have the daily opportunity to be a great example to those around me.
