Ask A Mormon: Do Mormons believe they will become gods?

Latter-day Saints believe that every life — our spirits, our souls, the essence of who we are — is eternal.

My office is in my home and has tons of theology books on the shelves as well as books for exegetical work. On the walls are various things that represent faith, a communion plate gifted to me by a congregation in a previous assignment. A desk clock with an expression of blessing from another, and a communion set made of rosewood from a workshop I attended. There are a few blessings painted on walls around the house and a cut class cross hanging in a window. I can only think of one portrait of Jesus, it has him smoothing a plank with a plane.
