Hi I'm Daisy

I'm half Bolivian & half North American. I love people from all walks of life & from all backgrounds!

About Me

Hello! Well a little about me: I'm a college student right now but I'll graduate soon :0) then I plan to work as a professional communicator. Reading & writing is my thing! But I really like studying medicine too. I plan to use my writing/medical skills to help others.I love spending time with my cute little nieces and nephews, going to the Temple, spending time in the beautiful outdoors and going to concerts, new restaurants, and museums.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, to be honest, I used to think that Mormons were a little weird. I grew up in Utah and some of my family was LDS so I knew a little truth and a lot of speculation. I decided to find out for myself though...that decision took me years to come to but, when I did I was determined to find out if it was a bunch of lies or really true. I read the Book of Mormon and as I did I found myself bawling! I wondered why some book could make me cry so hard. Time passed and I started to test the things they said were true, I started to ask God if it was true. Little by little I felt it was. I had good feelings and a bunch of things just fell into place. I even had a really cool dream one night. I eventually got to the point that I knew it was true and I could not pretend it wasn't. To me, that knowledge is my most precious possession. My life has gotten 100% better. It's not that I don't still have hard days but now I understand things better. I feel hope. I feel close to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ...I really love this and know it is real.

How I live my faith

I think it's important to put my faith into action. It helps I teach a group of my fellow college students about honesty, kindness, chastity, self esteem, and more. I visit two other young ladies each month to talk about their lives, their goals and their struggles, I help them in any way I can. I help teach people who just got baptized about the scriptures and making good choices. I used to teach 3 year old children about Jesus Christ and the importance of families and serving others. It doesn't matter much what I do I just love to help and teach...when inviting others to grow, I always grow too. :o)

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Daisy
It's a test of your faith. God's church is ran by money given lovingly and in faith. When I was first testing this tithing thing out I was working at a library. I had just payed $2.50 from my little paycheck the day before and I was putting books back on the shelves and thinking about it. I wondered if it all went to some bishop's pocket or if God really got it. I was in a little corner of the library, alone, and I remember the sun was coming in the window. As I put one of the books up $2.50 fell out of it! I worked at that library for 5 years and that was the first and last time I ever found money in a book. As I stared at it, I got goose bumps on my arms and felt happy! I remember feeling the following words spoken to my heart, "It will always come back to you." Since then, I've always paid 10% of my income and it HAS always come back, either as blessings or money...it's always been a miracle to me. :0) Show more Show less
