Learn it from us!

There are a lot of rumors out there and false accusations. The best way to clear them up is to go straight to the source! Check out!
It has loads of information about what we believe and members of the church have created profiles to share why they believe what they do and to answer a lot of questions that people ask about Mormons. It is an amazing website. You can also check out my companion and I's profiles
There is an option to chat with missionaries on it as well so if I'm not online at the moment or you want to talk to someone else...there you go! Have a great day!!!

Finally. Recognition.

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for basically my entire life. Today I finally, clearly and distinctly felt and recognized the Holy Ghost. This has been something I have struggled with -recognizing and feeling the Holy Ghost- for a long time. It is something that is essential for our learning and as a missionary something that I try to teach people about everyday.
The Holy Ghost speaks to us softly and quietly. He speaks differently to each of us. In the scriptures it tells us many of the 'fruits' of the Spirit. In Galations 5:22-23 it tells us "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,..." Doctrine and Covenants 11:11-13 it tells us it "leadeth to do good", in Helaman 5:30 it is described as "a still small voice of perfect mildness, as if...a whisper, and it did pierce even to the very soul". The spirit is quiet and yet oh so powerful. It is something that if we aren't paying attention to can very easily go unnoticed.
The job of the Spirit is to teach, protect, guide and comfort (D&C 36:2).
Today I discovered how the spirit talks to me. Unfortunately I recognized it after it was too late to respond. The Holy Ghost speaks to me through simple thoughts that come into my mind. The difficulty is descerning these thoughts from those of the spirit and my own. Someone once told me that if it leads to do good its from the spirit. Today the simplest thought came into my mind to move the phone from my back pack to my desk. Simple. But because of the simplicity I ignored it. The thought came to my mind several times but I continued to put it off. The result: our appointment that we had been anticipating fell through. The individual we were meeting arrived early and saw us in a meeting. They had tried to call but we obviously missed it, so they simply left. When we called them at the scheduled time they were already far from the meeting place and would not be able to make it. Earlier that morning my companion and I had prayed about this individual and felt a warm comforting feeling (the Spirit again) as to how the individual would recieve our lesson and the invitation we had for them later that day. Because of my decision not to follow the simple promptings I had had this individuals progression has been (hopefully temporarily) slowed. I am sad that I had to learn of/recognize the Spirit this way but one thing is for sure, I will never let this happen again and I will act on the promptings I recieve in the future.
We learn from our mistakes, so let us take those mistakes and use them to make us stronger and better than before. I love the Lord. I know that as we continue to follow Him and strive to recognize His promptings through the Holy Ghost and as we act on those promptings He will ever be there leading us along the path leading back to Him. I love Him. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I absolutely love being a missionary and sharing what I learn with other!
In the name of His son, Jesus Christ, Amen.

I Know.

I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the one and only true church on the earth today (Ephesians 4:5). I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God, as is the Bible and together they teach us the fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that through the prophet Joseph Smith the fulness of the gospel has once again been restored to the earth. I know that I can live with my family and my Heavenly Father for all eternity if I remain faithful and endure to the end. I know. You can know these things for yourself if you follow the prophet Moroni's exhortation "...I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy chost ye may know the truth of all things" (Moroni 10:4-5). The key to this is having 'a sincere heart' and 'real intent', meaning you truly want to find the truth and fully intend to act on whatever answer you recieve. Faith is a principle of action. You must be willing to act before you can recieve. If you want to read more of my testimony in my Savior Jesus Christ and why I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints look up my profile on
The Atonement is real, He lives. I am a daughter of God who loves and knows me personally. I am a Mormon.
In the name of our Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

"Be aware that faith is not a free gift given without thought, desire or effort. It does not come as the dew falls from heaven. The Savior said, 'Come unto me' (Matthew 11:28) and 'knock, and it shall be [given] you' (Matthew 7:7) . These are action verbs- come, knock. They are choices. So I say choose faith. Choose faith over doubt, choose faith over fear, choose faith over the unknown and the unseen, and choose faith over pessimism." -Richard Edgley Oct. 2010

Faith is also a principle of action...choose faith.

"We invite all to inquire into the wonder of what God has said since biblical times and is saying even now."

I LoVe being a missionary! It is amazing to see the light come into someone when they learn about and find God. Today my companion and I had the opportunity to teach about where we were before this life, why we are here and where we are going. The Holy Ghost was there, it was unmistakable. I am so glad I know that my Father in Heaven loves me and I know where I am going. I love being a missionary! Have an AwEsOmE day!
