My Religion

I am member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) or what most people know us as, Mormon.

Religion is a huge influence in my everyday life. I go to church every Sunday, and pray and read my scriptures daily. We also have weekly activities on Wednesday. I was baptized when I was 8 years old. We believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God and also the Bible as long as it is translated correctly. As a Mormon, we celebrate Christmas and Easter. Christmas is the birth of Christ while Easter is the Death and resurrection.  Our family back to my great great great great grandparents believe and live this religion.  When you are 14 can go to seminary, a class everyday before or after school to learn more in depth about our religion.

Being in this religion has changed my life for the better. I’m so glad I can be LDS because of all the experiences I have had. We have no specified clothing for the religion but we do wear dresses for church and we wear modest clothing,

To get married the couple goes to the temple and is married inside. We don’t drink Alcohol, tea (only herbal) we don’t smoke or do drugs.

  1. Hi Allison,

    I found it interesting that you are a very strong believe in Christianity, I wonder which type of Christianity do you believe in? Protestant, Anglicanism, Catholic? Also I find it interesting how you take classes about religion. I also wonder how you translate the bible, like how you know exact meaning what is written, how it is supposed to be interpreted? Or do interpret into the most logical answer?

    1. I am LDS or Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) I believe in Jesus Christ and God.

      I need to look more into how we know which bible is true. Is it ok if I get back to you?

  2. I think that this religion is very interesting. I did not know very much about the Mormon but I think it is an interesting religion and I would love to know more about it. I think it is also cool how your extended family believes in this religion as well.

    1. Emilee, I am so glad you find Mormonism interesting. If you have any more questions or want to know more about it, you can go to Mormon.org (main site) or visit LDS.org if you want to know more about that.
