What Do Mormon's Believe?

Hello! Happy Sunday! Welcome to my blog.

The Mormon Church is receiving a lot of attention right now due to Mitt Romney, a Mormon, running for the President of the United States. Although I am Canadian, I am hearing a ton of misinformation in regards to the Mormon's. I married a Mormon. Although I did not share his faith at the time - I knew that he was a good person. I married him because he was different than other guys I had dated - in positive ways. What I learned over the years being married to a Mormon is not to believe everything you hear. I found it interesting the contrast to what people would say about his church (who didn't go to his church) and the actual things that I witnessed. I have since become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (that is the real name of the Mormon church). In an effort to shed some light on some of the teachings of the church I am proud to belong to I am going to make and post 'quote art' every Sunday. The quote above was from a talk given by the president of the church in a world wide women's broadcast in 2007 called "Three Goals to Guide You". If you are interested, the text of the talk and video, they can be viewed HERE.

In conclusion, being a Mormon is not a weird thing as some people would like to suggest it is - I have been on both sides of the coin. We are people who desire to have a close relationship with God, and because of that relationship we strive to improve ourselves through the teachings of Jesus Christ. I hope that this post and the ones to follow will give you some incites to who Mormon's are, and what we believe.

p.s. Here are a couple other quotes I have found on Pinterest that are from leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormon's).
