Bonjour & Welcome

Choices....its a big decision

Choices they are so hard to make sometimes! I have lots of things that have been going through my mind but I am happy to say that I am choosing to follow Jesus Christ.

Eleven
We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.

We believe in the freedom to choose. Or in other words the ability and privilege God gives people to choose and to act for themselves.

“Agency allows us to be tested and tried to see whether or not we will endure to the end and return to our Heavenly Father with honor. … Agency permits us to make faithful, obedient choices that strengthen us so that we can lift and strengthen others.” —Robert D. Hales

I am so glad that we have the ability to choose for ourselves what we want. What will you choose to do with your agency?

A rainy summers day

Hello again :) For the past couple of days where I have been working have been cold and wet here in Utah! Once again weird weather!

Tenth
We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.

Paradisiacal glory means- a condition like the Garden of Eden

Year mark!

I can't believe I have been on my mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints a whole year today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
I have been serving the Lord with all I have and will for another 6 months! 
But it is sad to see that the time has flown by. 
I have met so many amazing people and I have loved them all! I have served in some great areas too! 

I want to share what I know to be true:
I know that my Redeemer Lives! I know that Christ died for all of my sins because He loves ME! I know that I am a Child of God! I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be THE true church! I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet called of God! I know that the Book of Mormon is true and it contains God's words! I know that we have a living Prophet on this Earth name Thomas S. Monson! I know all of this to be true and more!

Friday the 13th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love when Fridays land on the 13th it makes me laugh. And no I haven't seen the movies nor will I :)

We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

reveal means Revelation. Without revelation, all would be guesswork, darkness, and confusion.

Revelation is so important! Without it we really would be in the dark, wandering around in confusion. It helps us in our daily lives. Personal revelation is the way we know for ourselves the most important truths of our existence. It is a tender experience to petition our Heavenly Father in sincere, heartfelt prayer and look to Him for personal guidance.

Our Heavenly Father knows what it best for us.


Summer!!!!!!!!! Can't believe it is June....

I am so excited that it is Summer but this year is going SO fast!!!!!! Anyways I will carry on with my topic of the Articles of Faith.

We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

OK I have to say this Latter-day Saints or otherwise known as Mormons DO believe in the Bible! I am currently reading it! I love the Bible!

The reason we say that we believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly is because some people take it and change, add and corrupt it.

Joseph Smith taught that “many important points touching the salvation of men, had been taken from the Bible, or lost before it was compiled.” He also said that the Bible was correct as “it came from the pen of the original writers,” but that “ignorant translators, careless transcribers, or designing and corrupt priests have committed many errors.” (HC 1:245; 6:57.) The Church reveres and respects the Bible but recognizes that it is not a complete nor entirely accurate record. It affirms also that the Lord has given additional revelation through His prophets in the last days that sustains, supports, and verifies the biblical account of God’s dealings with mankind.

The Book of Mormon is also TRUE! Read it and find out for your self if you need one click here
