auriceli meets Jessa +CONTEST+ by auriceli auriceli meets Jessa +CONTEST+ by auriceli
Ahm just messing with you, Jessa ^_^ I wouldn't do that to you! :XD:

For ~jessathegreat's contest ^_^
'Tis a quickie but I couldn't resist lol
I had to use a stinkin' camera because I don't have a scanner handy XP

It's funny all the different exclaimations you get when people find out your LDS...
For example, one time I was on IMVU trying to chat with this one random guy but he was asking me odd questions about "things you do in your freetime" (lets just say they were definately not G-rated >_O). It got rather annoying so I told him I was mormon so that he'd keep his language clean and "......" *POOF!* he was gone! Magic powahs, I think. ^_^

btw I only added the labels for the sake of those who wouldn't understand what's going on.

lol I just realized how dull my wardrobe is :XD: ... and how incorrectly I colored her jeans and shoes... Ah well... >_>

Lol, true story.
I luckily haven't really had negative reactions from people (Not counting the usual mission stuff). One funny thing is at work, people are always asking me if I drink coffee (not knowing that I'm a mormon, but they must get a vibe, because I've been asked this a lot) and when I say no, they're always like "That's so good,  its not healthy to drink coffee".  Of course they say this while drinking coffee ^_^. I just think its funny. Anyways, I think its important for us all to respect one another's beliefs, no matter what the religious affiliation.

Yeah, I get the same thing here at work too :P I once worked a nightshift job for 3 years and everyone wondered how I survived without energy drinks or coffee. haha!
And yeah, I'm glad we live in a time when everyone's pretty respectful to one another when it comes to religion and lifestyle.

i think that people should quit trying to prove what you believe is wrong or make you try to loose confidence in your religion. I'm a Mormon and i'm proud of it.

Some situations are true with that drawing as a perfect example. In my situation, however, my non-Mormon friends tend to challenge my belief more than to back off from it. One thing I learned though is to never let anyone confuse your beliefs, even when you don't have a quick, clear answer for them. I totally love this, by the way! You have a nice, clear expression on those faces. ^_^ :thumbsup:

Problem is, sooo many people are against Mormonism, is almost hurts. At my College, I saw many people passing around a Book of Mormon that said "Book of Moron" Someone messed with the lettering .___.

Yeah, heard that one a million times lol They aren't original, believe me.
But hey, it doesn't make them look any better if they're making fun of people. So whatevs. They got their giggles and that's that.

I'm lucky to live in a town that's very respectful of others. Like, there are many religions, and lots of atheists around. Very mixed views on politics and ethics. But most everyone accepts that, and we all go on being friends. If someone were to rudely make fun of a religion or strong opinion like that, the collective public would be disgusted with that behavior, regardless of if they believed in it too.

Its hard sharing the gospel casually at work and school, especially when its unwanted. So maybe being more subtle will help, like mentioning that you went to church or an activity over the weekend, instead of directly talking about the lessons. If they want to learn more, they'll ask. Sometimes they get uncomfortable when they sense someone is "preaching" to them.

Most importantly, being a good example helps A LOT. If people see a trend in a church's behavior, it makes a lasting (and hopefully GOOD) impression on them.

yeah, I don't wear necklaces like I used to, but when I wore it, people would ask about it :)
I think there was an article in the recent New Era about a girl who was asked about her Iron Rod necklace. I was like "whoa whoa, I didn't send in a story to the New Era, did I?" lol
