Hi I'm Therese

I'm a Physical therapy student and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am Therese and I am a Physical Therapy student. I am born as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am fond of playing the guitar. As I grow up I can feel that family is God's central plan in order for one to be happy. I love them and they are really important to me. And I believe that I can be with them through all eternities since for me, God didn't just send them and let us know them for us not to be with them after life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I am imperfect but through knowing the true meaning of the gospel, it changed my life and my family. We became stronger through the gospel of Jesus Christ but that doesn't mean that we are not excused from challenges and trials,we are also experiencing those things but through God's grace we find hope that every trial will end, every challenge is conquerable and every problem has it's own solution . And these things are possible by being dependent to God's plan and power, seeking His divine guidance in order for us to be able to do things according to His will and for us to improve towards our maximum potential. Lastly, I am a Mormon because I've known that the Book of Mormon is a true testament about Jesus Christ, it testifies of His divinity and goes hand in hand with the Bible. I know that prophet Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God and he is the key in order for the primitive church which was established by Jesus Christ Himself to be restored to the earth once again. And I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's church once established again on earth. I've come to know this things by reading the Book of Mormon cover to cover, I've pondered about it and I asked our Father in Heaven closing with the name of Jesus Christ if this things are true. And I felt a strange feeling in a good way in which a small voice whispering to my heart that this things are true which testifies that God does answer our prayers, He knows us and loves us as His daughter and sons.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to apply every teachings of my parents, leaders, the church and our living Prophet by the name of Thomas S. Monson. I will never say that I am perfect but I am striving to be like Jesus Christ like what our very purpose why we live here on earth,that is to be like him in order for us to inherit his kingdom. Currently, while I am a student, I was called as a secretary of a stake, in which I grew in terms of loving and giving importance to each mother I knew. By this I've learned that motherhood is one of the noblest calling a woman could have. And the other calling I have is a chairwoman in a committee of Young single adults wherein I manage to create activities in order for each Young Single adult to know and to bond with each other while being closer to our Savior, Jesus Christ. (And every calling given to each member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a form of service wherein no one receives a salary for it, in which I've learned to be charitable.

What is the priesthood?

Therese
I for myself had experience this power for it is possessed by my Father and two older brother in which when I find counsel from them they give me one of the best counsels one could ever have and for me those things are gifts from God. And especially when they bless me for comfort which gives me the feeling of warmth and love that my Heavenly Father wants me to feel. I am thankful for having the opportunity to feel the blessings of this wonderful power given by our God. Show more Show less
