I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since I was baptized by my father on my 8th birthday. I served in the Washington Everett Mission and I am currently a Relief Society teacher. I love my community of Saints. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love knowing that Heavenly Father talks to Prophets today, and that He talks to me as well. I love that I have a personal Savior who has taken on my sins, pain, and weaknesses. I love feeling the pages of the Book of Mormon fill my heart with peace and happiness. I love being a Mormon, and I am Mormon down to my bones.
Sometimes, however, the pillars of my faith are attacked. They crack and they crumble. They remain bolstered by the promise of modern day revelation and that things can and will change. I have a testimony that “He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God” (9th Article of Faith). I know that God loves His daughters just as much as He loves His sons, and that He would not support institutional discrimination. I believe women should be ordained.
