Hi I'm Rochelle

I'm a Sociologist. I dance like no one is watching. I love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love holding babies, spending time with old people, I love all people actually. I love playing basketball, watching movies, laughing at a good joke, singing and dancing in the car, blogging, and sleeping in. I just graduated from BYU with a degree in sociology. I lived in Mexico for a couple of months and it was probably the most exciting thing that I've ever done. I have 3 sisters and 1 brother and I love having fun and being silly with my family. I am currently living at my parent's house, trying to figure out what I want to do next with my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so blessed to have been born into a family that is active in the church. I remember when I turned 8 I had a decision to make: whether to be baptized or not. But for me this decision was easy. As far back as I can remember I have always had a sure testimony that the gospel is true. I am not perfect and every day is a trial of my faith, but every time I pray, read the scriptures, live righteously and feel the warmth and reassurance of the Holy Spirit, I know that being baptized as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was the right choice. No one in the world knows me or cares about me more than my Heavenly Father, and although this life is challenging, I am a Mormon because I know that if I live righteously I can be with my family forever and live with my Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to love and serve others and be a good example like my savior, Jesus Christ. Whenever I find myself thinking negatively about others around me, I try to remember how Jesus would treat them and I do my best to change my attitude. When I remember how much Jesus cares for and loves everyone, it is hard for me not to see the divine potential in every human being. I teach the 4 year old class at church and I try to be the best teacher I can be, which, if you've ever been on your own in a room full of four year old's, is not always easy. I also love to smile, wave and visit with my friends and neighbors. Lending a helping hand or a listening ear is another way that I live my faith. We are commanded to love one another and I've found that by following that commandment, living my faith becomes a wonderful blessing that makes my life better than it could possibly be without the gospel.
