Friday Introductions! A little insight into the blogger behind the blog You can always read a bunch more about me on…. my About Me page (what else?!)
One thing you may not know about me is that I’m a Mormon – member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Today a movie comes out in theaters across the nation called “Meet the Mormons” so I wanted to do a quick post here where you could Meet the Mormon Me. You may wonder, why are my favorite bloggers Mormon – – I’ve actually gotten together in the past with those bloggers and we all wrote our beliefs into a compiled document – you can read more about that on my What I Believe post. “Mormons are encouraged to share their talents, expand their minds, and foster creativity. ” And if you scroll on down, you can browse a ton more bloggers and learn of their testimony and beliefs.
It is my beliefs that guide me in all I do. I want to follow the perfect example of Christ – he was kind and loving and I want to be that for my children and for those around me. I believe in the power of the atonement. I believe that families are forever – not just in this life, but for eternity – I know my family will be together after this life. I believe in the power of prayer and the opportunity we have to have a direct way to converse with our Father in Heaven.
We belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints otherwise known as “The Mormons”. We are proud of this part of who we are! We are excited to team up with over 65+ of us strong… to extend an invitation to see a film. A film entitled “Meet The Mormons”. This film is not meant to be an “in your face” – you must join our church film. It is simply designed and produced to uplift and inspire you through six stories of those of our faith who have followed promptings to follow Christ more fully in their lives. We hope you take the opportunity to enjoy this film. We hope your hearts are made light as you feel the goodness that comes from following our Christ and Savior. All proceeds from the film will be donated to The American Red Cross. So not only will you be uplifted and inspired, your money will be going to an amazing charity!!
We also would like to take a moment and share our personal testimonies, stories of our own personal conversions, and our own stories of how following our Savior, Jesus Christ has changed our lives. The light of the gospel of Jesus Christ offers a joy and hope that only following him can provide. We hope as you click through and read our stories and testimonies of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, you will feel uplifted and encouraged. We are by you! We love connecting with our readers, that is why many of us do what we do! Please be kind and considerate in your comments. It takes great bravery for us to open our hearts and our mouths to share with you such a tender and personal part of who we are. We share because we feel strongly the need to share the peace and the hope that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
