Hi I'm Holly

I grew up in Tampa, Florida. I love the beach and music and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up in Florida has instilled in me a love of water. I enjoy any place on Earth where water flows. It is my dream to visit as many water destinations as I can. I also have a love of music that has been with me since childhood. I play the piano and teach it. I listen to music all day long and sing in the church choir. I have 3 children who are musicians and vocalists as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that had just joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. So I was taught who Christ was and learned to live His Gospel from birth. I was so excited for my baptism at age 8. I knew I wanted to continue to follow the teachings of the Savior and looked forward to living with Him again someday. My testimony of Christ helps me to be faithful to His teachings and keep the commandments He has given to be worthy and prepared to live with Him again.

How I live my faith

I have served the Lord in many ways over the years. Presently, I serve by organizing projects that help others who have various needs. For example, I may organize dinners or babysitting for the sick. I may put together groups who help others with cleaning or packing needs if they are moving. I help with any type of need that comes up. It is a pleasure to serve others as Christ himself did when He was on the Earth.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

We want the influence of the Holy Spirit in our lives - to help guide us and teach us and warn us of dangers that lie ahead. We need our bodies and minds healthy and alert to receive the Spirit. When we take harmful substances into our bodies we cause damage which weakens our ability to receive the Spirit. So we try to take the best care of ourselves that we can so the Spirit can reach us and we can make righteous choices. Show more Show less
