Hi I'm Tracey Lewis

I am a advocate for Social justice, a pasta lover and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Tracey. I am currently in university. I love getting involved. This year I was a Building Executive and I planned events that would bring everyone closer together on Residence as a community. I enjoyed the position so much because I got to make a difference in the life of others even if it's small. Also I loved volunteering at the nursing home in high school for the same reason. I am a big lover of food. I love cooking and eating my favourites but I also like trying new foods from different cultures such as Samosas. They are so yummy. Also I love traveling to new places. I've been to China and it was such a fascinating, amazing experience. I recommend anyone to go if they can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the church is true with all my heart and that God lives. In high school before I met the missionaries I was agnostic. I assumed that God didn't exist because of all the tragedies in the world. But after much prayer, searching, questioning, and reading the scriptures I felt God's influence in my life. There are so many miracles that happened in my life and I felt the spirit for the 1st time that I couldn't deny God. I know God loves all his children so much and God is looking out for us. He gave us all the gift of free will, that's why bad things happen. God doesn't want us to suffer but to be alive there must be opposition in all things. Also I am a Mormon because I know that God continues to give us guidance today through his Living Prophets in the name of Jesus Christ. I know that the Bible and The Book of Mormon are both the word of God. They are my roadmap in life and they bring so much peace, correction and light into our lives. Overall, I am Mormon because Christ's church works in its full glory today because it's restored in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am so grateful to have a new life in Christ and to know that My Saviour loves me so much that he sacrificed his life for me. But I rejoice and I can proudly say with Christ I can have eternal happiness and families can be together forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily. My relationship with Christ is a huge part of who I am. He is my Saviour and Redeemer. I live my faith through my actions, I try my best to spread the light of Christ to everyone I meet. I am not perfect but I try to see everyone in God's eyes. Once I get close to someone I let them know that I am there for them in hard times and the good. Also I am on a Christian club on campus where I have weekly discipleship groups. We study the scriptures as sisters and uplift each other. It really strengthen my faith to be united in Christ with people my age. But most importantly, I live my faith through prayer, reading my scriptures, sharing Christ's good news and going to church. Prayer is so important me. I know that Heavenly Father does hears my prayers and he pours his love upon me daily.

In whom should we have faith?

Tracey Lewis
We should have faith in God and Jesus Christ with all our hearts, might and strength....so much that we know with a surety that God does exist and he lives today and forever. Show more Show less

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Tracey Lewis
Some people think Mormonism is a cult because we have different beliefs when it comes to the Godhead so they think we are unorthodox and unbiblical which is untrue. We believe that the Godhead is 3 separate beings who are united in purpose. Just like the bible states. Jesus himself said that his father was greater than he was in John 14:28. Jesus couldn't be less than God if they were the same person. We believe Jesus is the Son of God and God is our literal eternal father. Also a lot of people think we are a new religion so they think we are a cult which is not true as well. We follow the original teachings of Christ and the teachings that have been restored since the beginning of time. Also some think we add to the bible with The Book of Mormon but God doesn't stop speaking to his children and the verses in the bible that said to not to add to the book was talking to the separate bible books individually i.e Deuteronomy. The bi Bible wasn't pieced together at the time when the apostles were writing it. We know this because we have the whole new testament after which all Christians uphold and value including us. When many Christians believe that That Jesus is the Christ, The Son of God, and that He is the Savior and Redeemer of the world whom we love and worship. When people begin to see and recognize these things about Mormons, then their opinion of the Church usually changes, and old beliefs are replaced with new understanding. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Tracey Lewis
The Book of Mormon is from God and written by God. It is his guidance to us but since he is in heaven he sent his prophet Joseph Smith, just like he sent prophets of old to write down his teachings so we can have guidance in this life and to know our true worth. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

What is the Book of Mormon?

Tracey Lewis
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ translated through Prophet Joseph Smith. It doesn't replace the bible but it compliments the bible. A lot of people try to twist the words in the bible but the Book of Mormon helps to clarify the truth. Also it is there to help and guide us in our lives just like the bible. It's a collection of ancient stories from people from the Americas. It shows that God doesn't only speak to or show up to his children in the promise land but in other lands as well. Jesus Christ ministered and taught his children in the Americas while he was on earth. It shows that God loves all his children equally, Jew or Gentile. Show more Show less
