Hi I'm Heather Hamp

I play violin, grew up in Utah, love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been in the Presidency of the Beehive, Mia-maids, and Laurels class. I have earned a Young Woman's medallion through the Personal Progress Program. My favorite colors are Green and blue. I learned to play the violin in 8th grade. I enjoy reading books of different kinds.

Why I am a Mormon

In all honesty, I have grown up in the church, however, even I myself had questions about it being right or not. I have questioned at least once in my life "Is God here?" I am Mormon because not only had I grew up there, but because I had 'experimented' with the teachings of prayer and scripture study. I am a Mormon, because I trust in God.

How I live my faith

We are taught to share and teach our talents with others, I was able to use my talent and knowledge to help teach a young man how to begin his violin. I have been called into a Presidency where I have learned how to help organize activities. I have had another calling to help others learn about Family history and indexing. Some of the youth and I would go out and help each other find our families, their stories and connect them to our family trees. I also have been teaching another Sister from my homeward how to do family history.

What is the difference between attending a church and attending a temple?

Heather Hamp
Int the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon church) we believe that the Temples are a place of love and beauty, it is meant to be shared with all the children in this world. However, many will say that we withhold secrets inside. The Temples are not 'secret' but sacred. Attending church and church activities will help us come into the House of the Lord (Temples.) We are asked to act in the way of the Lord to our best of abilities to be worthy to enter into the Temples where we are able to preform the sacred ordinances that are here to help us gain eternal life.
