My beliefs are very important to me, they bring meaning and purpose to my life. I believe that we each lived with a loving Heavenly Father before we came to Earth. I believe that we came to Earth to learn and to grow, so that we can become like our Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ.

I believe that our bodies are gifts from God. I believe that by showing respect for our bodies (dressing modestly, eating healthy, and exercising, etc.) we show gratitude to God for the marvelous gift He has given us.

I believe in the Bible and The Book of Mormon. I feel peace when I read the scriptures and have prayed to know for myself that they are true.

I believe in living prophets and apostles.

I know that life can be really hard sometimes. Some of the challenges we face are the result of the poor choices of others, some are the consequences of our own bad decisions, and sometimes life just happens.  But I believe that the trials we face in life are ultimately for our benefit. If we never faced hardships and had to struggle we wouldn't learn, grow and become better people.

I believe in the power of prayer. I know that my prayers are heard and answered, sometimes the answers come in unexpected ways.

I believe that each day is a blessing and a gift. We each have a limited number of days here on Earth and it is up to us to decide how we spend those days. I strive to live each day as if it were my last and free of regret.

I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are real and that they are rooting for our success!

If you would like a copy of The Book of Mormon, let me know and I would be happy to send you one.
