Hi I'm Stonehocker

I'm a military wife, and a mother of two.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a military wife, and and a homeschooling mother of two. I'm also a massage therapist, and someday I will be going back to school to get an education degree.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I've been a member of the church since I was 8. Life was easy then, and my reasons and a faith were simple. "So I can live with my family for ever", as my four year old would say. You would think that with life getting complicated through the teenage years, and into the "adult world" my reasons my change-but they haven't. I want my family to be together forever. I know that that will happen through Jesus Christ's plan. There really isn't a better plan, I don't need to hear every plan that ever existed, because I know it in my heart. I know that our prophets give us the needed direction in our personal lives, to make it possible for us to retun to live with Father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith waking up everday to do a really hard job. Motherhood. I love it, but some days it's REALLY hard. Especially in the months when I have to do it-alone. Motherhood is a divine calling. I do rely on the Lord a lot, sometimes I feel lost and alone when my husband is deployed. I turned to the Lord in prayer. I turn my children to the Lord. We have peace in our home, and an abundance of love.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Stonehocker
No, I used to think that all Mormons happened to be Republican, but they aren't. I've met plenty of people in all parties. However, I think it's safe to say, we do tend to be a bit more conservative no matter which party. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Stonehocker
Through simple and personal prayer, and through simple service and kindness to those around us. His words come to us all in different ways. For some through scripture, others clear thought, and always with a feeling of peace and love. Show more Show less
