Hi I'm Donnell

About Me

I was born in Burley Idaho and lived on a farm. I am a mother and grandmother who enjoys her family. I love going on walks and visiting my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were members of the church who encouraged me to find out for myself if the church is true. Over the years as I grew my testimony grew as I prayed about the things I was taught. I have felt very close to God and I know he has answered my prayers. Being a member of the church brings me great joy in my life and my family. I am especially great-full to know that my family can be forever. After this life I will be with my family.

How I live my faith

I like going to the woman's meetings where we learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ. One of my favorite activities is to go with one of the other women and visit members of our group. By visiting with each other frequently it helps us to develop our friendships and other interests.

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

As a member of the "God Head" the Holy Ghost is a source of comfort and guidance in our lives. When we are baptized and confirmed members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints, authorized holders of the priesthood bless us to have the "Gift of The Holy Ghost." This means that as we live the teachings of Christ, the Holy Ghost can be with us to guide and teach us. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

The Bible is the first testament of Jesus Christ. Without it we would never have learned of him. It is because of the Bible and the Book of Mormon (another witness of Jesus Christ) that I gained a knowledge of him. The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints is the continuation of the church had by the ancient prophets from the Old Testament and the Apostles of the New Testament. Because of the Bible we have living Prophets and Apostles today. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Many people in the past never heard of Jesus Christ or had a chance to learn of him. But he went to teach them as it tells us in the Bible. These people never had the opportunity for baptism in this life and so it is done by others for them by proxy. Now they can chose for them selves if they will accept this baptism.

What do Mormons believe about family?

My family is the most precious thing in my life. I have many blessings because of my family. My children and Grand children are my most prized possessions in my life, more than gold or jewels. Show more Show less

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

The scriptures tell us that the church should have a foundation of apostles and prophets. The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints has been restored so it must have apostles and prophets to fit with Jesus Christ as the chief corner stone. Ephesians 2:19-20 19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; Show more Show less
