You may or may not know I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We’re also known as Mormons or LDS. I’m not so social these days, but I’ve had friends who are Catholic, Baptist, Born-Again, Muslim, Atheist, everything. If someone asks me, I will always talk to them about something I feel so strongly about. But, I love to hear about and respect what other people believe too.
Today I thought I’d switch things up a bit. Let everyone know some interesting morsels about my faith.
Want to be a Mormon
We don’t drink coffee, at all! I’ve never had a sip, but some mornings I could use my coffee. And, about half of us don’t even drink caffeinated pop. The other half of us are addicted to Dr. Pepper or Mountain Dew.
We love dessert! I’ve heard that Utah has the highest per-capita jello consumption rate. It’s possible that your thighs would automatically become larger if you joined the LDS church.
We all have jobs, church jobs, and we don’t get paid! Even the bishop is a volunteer. Usually my job switches every couple of years. Currently, I am the Compassionate Service Leader. Which means I help set up meals for people in our neighborhood who are sick or need a little help. There have been times when I have not felt so compassionate. One more thing to feel guilty about!
We’re not so cool like Big Love or Sister Wives. We haven’t practiced polygamy since 1890! I give a collective sigh of relief for that. Though, if I were to have a sister wife, I would make sure to find one who likes to clean.
Our really famous Mormons list is…interesting, but a little short. Here are a few: Mitt Romney, Harry Reid, Stephanie Meyer, Gladys Knight, Jimmer Fredette, and my personal favorite, Ricky Schroeder. Also, my daughter, Dani, would like to add that she’s famous. She was in the school talent show last week.
We have church for 3 hours on Sunday!
Families are sealed for eternity in the Mormon church. Forever! This is a wonderful thing, so long as you like your husband and kids. If you feel you need a break at the end of this life, then the Mormon church may not be for you.
So, I know I’m not signing up any recruits today. I saw a poll that said 25% of the population would never vote for a Mormon as President. I’m not sure if the same goes for blog following, but if you’d now like to unfollow me, I will miss you.
