What we Believe

We wanted to open up a bit about what we believe here at say it sis.

We believe in Jesus Christ and we try to live our lives like He did.  We are Christians and our religion is called The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints {aka Mormon}. Ashley lives in Amsterdam and Andrea lives in Wisconsin and so we are the minority in our religion in these places. We feel like it is so important to live what we believe and to not compromise our beliefs and standards since we are the minority in what we believe in. When people find out that we go to church for 3 hours on Sunday, they are SHOCKED! I wanted to just talk about a few important parts of our belief system.

*We have a book of scripture called the Book of Mormon that was written from ancient prophets and compiled and translated by Joseph Smith. We use the Book of Mormon along side the Bible.

*Being Christians, we try to emulate Jesus Christ’s life and his teachings.

*We believe that families can be together forever, even after death.

*We believe that God cares and loves us so much. He wants us to pray to Him so that we can have a relationship with Him. He wants us to be happy and He wants us to succeed!

*We get baptized at age 8, (although anyone can be baptized after this age), and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost which provides guidance in our lives to know what is good.

*We have temples all over the world where we perform sacred ordinances that bind our families together.

*We go to church for 3 hours every Sunday where we learn how to be more Christ-like,  learn more about the scriptures and renew the promises we made with God each week by taking the Sacrament.

*We have high standards that we teach our children at a young age {use clean language, dress modestly, respect everyone around you, don’t have sex until you are married, start dating  when you are 16 years old}

*We believe that if we live a good life, we will be able to live again with our families again in the next life.

*We have missionaries throughout the world preaching what we believe so that we can share our happy message of the gospel to everyone.

If you have any questions about what we believe in, go visit lds.org or mormon.org or just ask us!
