Hi I'm Lacey
I was born and raised in Idaho but now live in Utah and am attending a university majoring in Special Education. I recently learned how to rock climb and love it! I enjoy living near the mountains so I can hike, camp, and enjoy the nature that God created. I love working with kids and have loved the opportunities I have had to volunteer in my community and work with them.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born into an active Mormon family and was baptized when I was eight years-old. I didn't question the truthfulness of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints until I was sixteen years-old and a dear friend of mine passed away in a car accident. I was angry, sad, and didn't know why God would take this amazing person from her family and friends. The only way I got through it was turning to Him through prayer and scripture study and leaning on the people around me who had faith the Gospel was true and that she was happy and living with our Father. I eventually, gradually, came to know that this church is true and that I cannot live without it. It gets me through hard times and makes the good times sweeter. It provides a support system that loves and supports you no matter where in the world you are. I know that Jesus Christ is my savior and that through Him I can do all things that He asks.
How can we develop greater harmony in our homes?
I am currently living with three roommates and we have our disagreements and moments of contention, but in our home the way we gain harmony is serving each other and those around us. We do things like bake cookies for our neighbors and deliver them together. We serve each other and that helps us feel the love of God. That is the best way I have found to develop harmony in my home.
How I live my faith
I serve in my church by watching over sisters in my community. I visit them, serve them, listen to their concerns, and just love them. Being a friend to all around me is what I do to live my faith. I try my hardest to be an example of Christ-like service. I am planning on serving a full-time mission when I am of the age to do so. I know that the only way I can truly serve the Lord is serving His children.
