Hi I'm Holly

I love to organize things, I'm a picky eater, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town, and loved it. I recently graduated from college and am now mother to a beautiful little girl. I enjoy clogging and tap dance, photography, the outdoors, and traveling. I spent a year in Romania working with children, I really grew to love the country and the people and hope to go back someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in the principles that the church teaches. I believe because as I have tried to live the principles I have felt a sense of purpose in my life. My role as a woman, a wife, and a mother has become more clear. I have found direction in my life, as well as great happiness and a sense of peace within myself because I know that I am doing what I should be doing. Life is still very hard sometimes, but even when it is hard I am still glad that I am a Mormon because the teachings of the Church help me to get through the hard things in life and help me to understand why life is difficult for all of us.

How I live my faith

My faith influences everything in my life, from the type of parent that I want to be to how I spend my free time. I try to pray and read the scriptures every day because talking to God and reading his teachings in the scriptures remind me of what is important. This helps me to have more patience and love for others throughout the day, and in general just makes my day go better! In addition, as part of my membership in the LDS church I visit a couple other women, who are also Mormons, once a month to build a friendship with them and to help them with any needs they might have.

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

The love that I feel for others tell me there is a God. I also feel God's love for me and because I feel His love I know that He is there. I know that He is guiding me and directing my life. I know this because when I look back on my life, the experiences that I have had, where I am now and where I am trying to go, I know that God has been there -- putting people in my life to help me or allowing me to experience things that have shaped who I am and what I believe.
