Hi I'm Victoria

About Me

I love to spend time with my husband and son who's a toddler now and keeps me very busy. We like to go on family walks in the evening and talk about our day. We also love to play games with our friends whenever we get the chance.

Why I am a Mormon

One reason I am a Mormon is because of the focus that is placed on families. My family is so important to me and I want everyone to have joy with their families. Another reason is because I know that God loves us and wants us to be happy. One proof of this is that He gave us His son, Jesus Christ, so that we can repent and live with him again. When I go to church and am obedient his commandments I feel His love and receive his blessings. I have learned how wonderful forgiveness can be both when I am the recipient and when I am the giver. I hope that everyone can feel the joy of their Heavenly Father's and their Saviors love the way that I have as I have been a member of His church.

How I live my faith

One of the ways that I live my faith is by giving service, when I can, with other women who attend church with me. Another is by teaching my toddler the gospel of Jesus Christ; even though he is young. Every month I try to visit some women who are also members of his church and talk to them about the gospel and what is going on in their lives. As we build friendships we find opportunities to serve each other. It's always enjoyable and I learn so much from them! I also try to talk my friends who are not members of the Church about what I believe because I know that the gospel will bring joy to their lives just like it has to mine.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

The way come to know our Father in Heaven is very similar to the way we come to know anyone. To know somebody we have to spend time with them, talk to them. Because we can't call our Father in Heaven on the phone or walk over to His house, He has given us other means to come to know Him. We have been given scriptures that teach us His desire and will for us. As we read the Book of Mormon and the Bible, we are able to learn the commandments that He has given us as well as the blessings he has promised us if we are obedient to His commandments. Another way that he has given us to come to know Him is through prayer. All of God's children can pray to him. We can get on our knees everyday and tell him about what is happening in our lives, our concerns, our happy news, whatever it may be; and we can ask for guidance and help. Because He loves us, He will hear and answer our prayers. Show more Show less
