Unspoken Conversations are the topics that are often swept under the carpet, whispered amongst the closest of friends and bitched about by many. I want to create awareness about difficult things that people face in life; grief, mental health, money, illnesses, family troubles, relationship difficulties and putting yourself first. I want to tell the truth about things that really matter.

The Life of a Mormon.


I stumbled upon SarahJane's blog Just the Two of Us the other day and instantly fell in love. Being the life learner that I am, I knew straight away that I wanted her to do a blog post for me on life as a mormon, so that I could learn more about!

I am guest posting over at SarahJane's blog today! Check it out. 


Hey there. My name is SarahJane and I blog over at Just the Two of Us
We would love for you to stop by sometime and read about our adventures. 


When Kirsty asked me to do a guest post for her about
All Things Mormon, I was really excited!
I have been a member of 
my entire life. 
I love any opportunity I can get to share what I believe to be true. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today I am going to share with you a few of our core beliefs. 
If you would like to learn more, 
you can visit the Church's website
or leave a comment below and I will surely get back to you :)

5 core principles of the LDS Church

1. We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ 
and in the Holy Ghost. 
We refer to these three as the Godhead. 
All three members of the Godhead are distinct beings with distinct roles 
but they are one with purpose and doctrine. 

2. We believe in the same organization that existed when Christ was upon the earth. 
Our church is the true restored church of Jesus Christ. 
We believe there was an apostasy for many years 
where the church was taken away from the earth. 
We believe it was restored to the earth in 1830
 through the first Latter-Day Prophet, Joseph Smith. 

3. We believe that we have a prophet on the earth today just like 
the prophets in the bible.  Our Prophet is President Thomas S. Monson, he receives revelation
from God to direct the members of the Church on earth. 
You can read more about current revelation during our bi-annual General Conference.

4. We believe Temples to be the house of God. 
We visit them often to complete Ordinances and make covenants with God. 
My husband and I were married in the Salt Lake temple. 
By obedience to the covenants we made with God that day, 
we can be an eternal family. 

5. We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved. 
We believe when Christ was on the earth, he atoned for our sins. 
Because of this atonement, Christ is our redeemer and Savior. 
He is the light and the way to live with our Heavenly Father again. 
Through Christ, we can have eternal life.  

All five of these principles are taken from our 13 Articles of Faith
