Hi I'm Justine Cloward

I grew up in Missouri and was raised in Kansas. I am a Mormon

About Me

I was born in Missouri and enjoyed every second of the country air with my older brother. We were always on the go and our mother could barely keep up with us. We were wiled and learned many lessons. One in which I will never forget. Once my brother and I were played in the house, chasing each other around like children do. We then heard a shatter from behind us. A glass vase had fallen and we both knew it was my mothers favorite thing. I remember feeling awful and trying to sweep the pieces under the counter before my mother came in. My mother soon came in and saw us.. I felt awful and told her as she peered under the counter.. I explained, "we were playing mom, and.. I'm sorry" I began to cry a little. She turned to me and said "I loved that vase.. but I love you more than anything you could ever brake."

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the Holy Ghost witness to me that it is true. That the Plan of Salvation is true and that we are on this earth as a great test and preparation for after this life. I have gained my own testimony just as anyone else would. There was a time in my life when I had a desire to know for myself that the Book of Mormon is true. I prayed earnestly and the Spirit touched my heart. We are all loved and everyday I feel just how blessed I am to be a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint. There are no gaps in the knowledge I have and my gratitude is full.

How I live my faith

from that experience, I will always remember that love that my mother has for me. Such love never fades. I know also and have seen that Heavenly Father loves us so much more than anyone here on earth ever will. I am strengthened everyday by knowing my Heavenly Father loves me, individually, and that my brother Jesus Christ Atoned for each of us. He, being our brother, loves us so much by that great act. I think that alone helps me everyday! I work and am busy but find strength in my family and through prayer I find peace.
