Our church just got moved from 11am to 9am. 😳 We are doing our best to get this rowdy bunch dressed and out the door on time. I am loving the earlier time though. It’s so nice to be done with church by noon (you read that right, 3 hours of church) and then have the rest of the day to rest and play.
HOW HAS FAITH PLAYED A ROLE IN YOUR LIFE?
Almost all of my big decisions in my life have been centered around my faith and membership in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (aka Mormon).
Since I was a young girl I wanted to do God’s will for me and keep his commandments. I am so grateful that I was brought up in a Christian household that taught me that if you follow God’s commandments you will be blessed and find greater happiness. Life can be sooooo hard. Knowing that God is on my side and is always there for me is what has helped me get through the trails I’ve faced throughout my life. The pinnacle faith shaping moment for me was when my mom passed away when I was near 12 years old. I knew that I would see her again and wanted to be worthy to live with her and God someday.
I have never drank or smoked. I have only been intimate with one person, my husband, once we were married. Some may say that sounds boring but I believe that those choices have saved me from a lot of heart ache. I have made and still make a ton of mistakes, but I repent and strive to do what’s right.
In no way do I think that someone has to be religious in order to be a good person or live a happy life. For me though, that is where I have gained much happiness and strength.
