Why, yes, I am Mormom

I grew up in the church.  My husband did not.  In a matter-of-fact, I asked him if he wanted to take the missionary discussions.  He told me "If you clean the house, I will take the discussions."

That was his way of telling me "No, I will never take the discussions because you will never clean the house."

Well, I went home and cleaned to HIS specifications.  My specifications are nothing on the floor, it is clean!  His specifications are closer to those of a health department.  Anyway, he kept his word, and the missionaries came over within a week.  He read the introduction to the Book of Mormon and knew it was true.  My dad was the same way.  He actually found a discarded Book of Mormon while in the Marines and read it.  He knew it was true.  My Moms truth came after she was baptized.  She was in Europe and went to a museum where there were gold plates with writing on them.  Not our gold plates, but still, she then knew it was possible.  Hers was a leap of faith, she felt it was true, but didn't quite know until after she had been in Europe.

I know that there is a living Prophet on the earth that speaks to everyone who lives on the earth.  I also know that the gospel was restored and that the temple work really does keep families together eternally.

Let's fast forward to 10 years after my husband was baptized.  Yes, we are still Mormon.  We call the church we belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  We are not perfect.  We try to treat others kindly, but sometimes I get really mad at people.  My husband had to stop smoking to get baptized, but he started and stopped multiple times since he was baptized.  The great thing is that he can still be a member of the Church and try to perfect himself.  I also have a horrible time waking up.  Church is at 9:30 AM, which is nice since we get out about 12:30 and have the rest of the day to rest, but the first hour I am awake is pure torture for anyone around me.

From my readers that aren't Mormon, have you ever heard a rumor about our church and want to know if it is true?  Have any questions to ask?
