Hi I'm Connie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Southeast Texas. My great-great grandparents, William and Joissine Williamson, joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in April 1900, which paved the way for literally 1000's of their decendants to accept the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I am thankful to be one of them and proud of my Texas LDS heritage.

Why I am a Mormon

The Mormon lifestyle makes sense if you want to be healthy and happy, and associate with good people. If that was the only reason it might actually be enough for me for the short term. However, being a surface Mormon is not enough to keep me here through thick and thin. Life is tough for everybody, and if I'm going to live by righteous values that seem to oppose the world's direction, I want to be sure of the details because sometimes it would be a lot easier to go with the flow of the world. I was lucky enough to be born a Mormon, but I'm still a Mormon because I figured out that it really is true. Over time I have read and studied the Bible and the Book of Mormon and the words of the latter-day prophets, and I've tested and tried them and believe it's all true, even though I still have a lot to learn. But the real reason I'm still in is because I have felt a witness inside me - in my heart and in my head, spirit to spirit, that it's true. I know it is.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying everyday for the strength to stand for truth and righteousness. There really is freedom in living by the teachings of Christ. I try to follow His example of love and service. This church offers many opportunities for service - organized and structured, but the church also encourages individual responsibility to serve others, which is actually where you see what your faith is made of.
