Hi I'm Deb

I'm a college student. I'm an art enthusiast. I'm spontaneous. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 23-year-old college student, living in DC, in the midst of figuring out my future! I've dappled in film, journalism, and art history. I'm an activist, hiker and art appreciator. Being outdoors clears my mind and gives me fresh perspectives. Being surrounded by a diversity of cultures and religions broadens my understanding of the world around me. I love to talk to everyone. And I really love to laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

 I'm a Mormon because it feels right. Because it's the only church that can answer all my questions. Because it really is Jesus Christ's church. That's why I'm a Mormon. Love is at the heart of everything I believe. God is the Father of our spirits. And when I say father, I mean it. Just like a father loves his children, God loves me and you. Because of that love, He wants us to have everything He has. So, He sent us here to earth to learn and grow through trial but He's eager to help us return to Him. God is perfect. If we aren't perfect, we can't live with Him again. But, none of us is perfect. God loves us and wants us to return to Him so much that He provided a way. He loves us so much He let his son, the only earthly being to ever live a perfect life, suffer and die and take upon Him the burden of our sins and pains. That's why one day, you and I can live with Him again. It's a perfect plan for imperfect people. When I do something wrong. When I slip up, I have to turn to Him. He is eternal life. He is hope. He is Christ.

How I live my faith

 Living my faith is a fluid day-to-day process. I live my faith by smiling at people who seem down. I recognize the small miracles in my life. I observe the intricacies and beauties of nature and I know it wasn't an accident. I teach a class of wonderfully boisterous 15-year-olds about Christ! I also teach missionaries who are preparing to preach the Gospel in Paraguay and Las Vegas and lots of other places around the world. I pray. I read the scriptures. I go shout and cheer for family members at their sporting events! I create order around me. I listen to the prophet. I cook for people!
