Hi I'm Panida

I 'm a ordinary woman. I love seeing you smile. It makes me happy. I'll be a missionary in Temple square Mission!

About Me

I 'm Panida. I live in Nongkhai,Thailand. I'm a nurse. I love my job. It's awesome! I love interacting with patients and families,espcially in relation to teaching and helping them help themselves. I also find the science aspect of it very interesting, but love that nursing specifically focuses on the strengths of the client, not just the nature of the medical problem they have. Plus, there's little possibility of becoming bored in this field; if you get sick of something or get burnt out, chances are that there is some fresh area that will re-invigorate you! I also love history. History is simply fascinating. I love the stories that come from history. I like learning from the mistakes that have been made in the past. I love seeing how we as a society have grown or changed. Sometimes its for the better sometimes its for the worse. I can see where historical lessons have been ignored and therefore history in some shape or form has repeated its self. I love history because it gives me perspective. I love spending time with my family. I love them so much. They always make me happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I have come to know that the teachings of the church are true, and that in living them I am a happier person. By following the teachings of the church I believe I am always striving to be a better person. When I was 17 years old I met two missionaries. They taught me about Jesus Christ and invited me to go to the church. It brings me great joy and comfort in my life to know where I was before I came to earth, why I am on this earth, and where I am going when I die. Living the teachings of the church does not mean life is always easy, as we all experience difficulties in life, but I have learned as I trust in our Father in Heaven I will be better able to cope with them. While also improving as a person. As it is only in difficulties that we can truly improve. I know that our savior Jesus Christ came to this earth and took upon himself my sins, meaning that when I do wrong I am able ask for forgiveness from my Heavenly Father, and in his infinite mercy he will forgive my mistakes. To know that I can always be forgiven for my wrong doings brings me great comfort.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ is a natural way of living easy and simply. It is more than following rules, it is simply doing correct things. As members of the Church, we have the opportunity to improve our lives, individually, as a family, as professionals, and as part of our communities. For me, the church is a great place to learn to love others and sometimes feels like an extended family. Most importantly I knew Heavenly Father love us and I love him.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Family members who accept the Atonement of Jesus Christ and follow His example can be together forever through sacred ordinances performed in God’s holy temples. Jesus gave to Peter the power to have things sealed on earth and sealed in heaven. This same sealing power was restored to Joseph Smith. Mormon’s believe that they can be “sealed” or bound together through His power enabling them to live together in eternity. Show more Show less
