Hi I'm Nadine

I know the Church of Jesus Christ is true. After searching all my life, at the age of 60 I became a Mormon.

About Me

I am a senior citizen. I love to read, camp, get together with friends and cook if I have someone to share my meal with. I raised 2 boys and had Foster children for 6 years until I became sick and unable to do it anymore. I enjoy outings to anywhere. I am single and happy! I have some college education. I love my dog an cat. They are my companions. I enjoy attending functions at the Church and volunteer to help when I can. I enjoy good movies and walks. I made Venetian style Paper Mache Masks and have a nice collection but don't make them anymore because I moved to a small apartment and there is no room for it. I love good music, no rap, and dance when I am feeling good.

Why I am a Mormon

All my life I knew I wanted to find the "True Church". I searched many churches but never found one that had the 3 truths I was sure of. 1) That a loving God would send people to a literal Hell Fire and that when we die our bodies would not be able to burn forever. 2) I did not believe in the Trinity. God the Father and Jesus Christ his son are separate beings with one purpose and the Holy Spirit was a separate being. 3) Christ said we would know his followers by the Love they had among themselves. The churches studied and visited did not meet all of these criteria. I had an empty hole in the center of my being that needed to be filled. I was at the worst low of my life and did not want to go on. I had stopped praying and did not discuss religion with anyone for about 20 + years. I was staying in a homeless shelter for abused women and 2 days before I was to move into my apartment I went to stay with a friend who was a Mormon. Her daughter came by and for some reason that I do not know I was open to discuss God. She bore her testimony of the Church and her faith and had me in tears. The next day the Senior Missionaries came to see my friend and as we chatted they offered me a visit. Up until that time I would never have even considered it but for some reason I accepted. The missionaries were at my door a couple days after I moved in. I had decided to listen to their message if they agreed they would address all of my questions and show me scriptural backing for their answers. I was surprised that such young men could teach me. I read the Book of Mormon. They told me to pray about it. A few weeks later I was baptized by these same missionaries. I know this Church is true, that God reveals what he wants for us through prophets in the past and now in this latter days, that Joseph Smith was inspired of God to translate the Book of Mormon and that he was a prophet of God. Thomas S Monson was called to be the prophet today.

How I live my faith

I visit a couple people from our Ward who are unable to get out much. I also have enjoyed my friendship with an investigator and we share spiritual things as well as getting together for fun. I just received a new calling to keep our Calendar for our Ward on LDS.org updated. I try to be involved and aware of my neighbors and help them whenever I can. I truly enjoy sharing the gospel and am not timid if opportunity avails me. I try to live the Gospel by my actions and my words. I know that example is very important and that the Love we have for others is more effective than a thousand words.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Nadine
We believe that Jesus Christ is the literal only begotten Son of God. That he came to this earth to atone for the sins of mankind. No unclean thing can enter into Gods presence. Christ died to save us from everlasting death. It is through true repentance and baptism that we can receive this gift and through no other means. Christ lives and is directing the church through a living prophet today awaiting the time when we shall all be resurrected. Show more Show less
