Hi I'm Whitney

I'm a teacher. I'm a musician. I'm on a mission in Pennsylvania. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from University in December 2009 as an elementary school teacher. In my spare time, I love to dance (ballroom, country, and swing), make music on any instrument I can find, and read! I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of this church my entire life. I've held strong because I see the amazing things that it teaches that are not taught in any other church. It teaches where we came from, who we really are, and what our loving Heavenly Father is helping us to become. It is truly a miracle. Though I've been a member my whole life, it's important that I know for myself that it is the true church. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. He truly saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in a grove of trees and was called as a prophet of God. We have a living prophet today who leads and guides our church according to revelation. This is Christ's church restored again to the earth! That's why I'm a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I am currently living my faith by serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As a missionary, I spend all day every day in missionary service. I teach those in the congregation, do service in the community, and most importantly search out those who are looking to learn more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No! Every person on this earth is a son or daughter of our Heavenly Father. As such, we are all brothers and sisters. Our church is dedicated to helping out wherever we can and are often some of the first on the scene to help with natural disasters. Show more Show less

What is the difference between attending a Mormon Church and a Mormon Temple?

Mormons meet at Mormon churches at least once a week, and often more than that for various meetings. Any are welcome there. A Mormon temple is where we participate in sacred ordinances. In order to enter there, a person must have a current temple recommend, showing that they are worthy to enter the House of the Lord. Show more Show less
