Hi I'm Ruth

I'm a cowgirl and a student. I love learning, history, music and sports. I am a return missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a full-time college student and I love being outside. I love fishing, hiking, riding horses, playing sports, and working. I love to read anything from Harry Potter to Jane Austen and I enjoy spending time with others. I love singing and dancing and I don't believe in dull moments. I recently returned from a full-time mission in Birmingham, England!

Why I am a Mormon

It makes me happy, and because I know it's true. I love the blessings the gospel brings into my life. I'm mormon because I know that I have a loving Heavenly Father who wants me to become the very best I can be and has provided me with everything I need to get there. I'm mormon because I know that Jesus Christ is my savior and redeemer.

How I live my faith

I simply go to church, and participate in any way I can. We all receive callings, or jobs in the church. I've had several callings, everything from teaching classes to planning social activities. I also love talking to others about my beliefs and I try to always do what is right. I'm always striving to better myself and come closer to living as Christ would have me live.  

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

Everything tells me there is a God. The more I learn the more I believe there is a God. Especially in my science and history classes. Everything science discovers is so intricate, detailed, orderly, and perfect - how could it all have happened by chance? In history so many things seem to work out in order, as if it was planned. I believe that every event in history is known beforehand and the purpose is understood to God. Not only does all this tell me that there is a God, but also that he is loving. Why else would there be so much beauty and perfection in his creations? Above all these witnesses is one final witness - in my heart I feel and know it to be so. Show more Show less
