Hi I'm Younhee

I grew up all over the place, and God raised me to be who I am today, He is my best friend! I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm currently studying Animation in college. I love drawing and giving life to ideas! I hope to create my own comics and animated shorts in the future, I also love commas,, :) I was born in South Korea, frequently moving most of my life to different places, including Japan and L.A., California, I speak Korean and English fluently, and enjoy practicing my American Sign Language as well. I love drawing, thinking, ice skating, solving puzzles, eating, fishing, dancing, music, watching movies and cartoons, reading, talking to close friends, spending time with my loved ones, etc. I didn't used to be shy, but since my parents' divorce my self confidence dropped and I was bullied in school a lot. Those lonely experiences have taught me to be more gentle as I have found myself opening up more as I joined the church and grew older. God, the Greatest Love, is everything, absolute everything to me, and I would be nothing without Him. I have had the privilege to serve in China Hong Kong Mission as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, through this experience I needed to learn the Cantonese language as well, Serving a mission has been my dream ever since I learned of such opportunity, and it has been the most heartfelt, special, sacred, unforgettable service of my life. I am no longer the same person, Hong Kong has stolen my heart.

Why I am a Mormon

After my parents' divorce, my life started to head downhill. And when I lived with my father who I rarely saw at home, I became physically malnourished, mentally out of control, spiritually lost, and was failing academically. I had no true friends among the peers, rather, I was bullied in school. After a terrible depression that led me to attempt suicide, I desperately desired for a change. My mother who was in America at the time, found the missionaries and became a mormon. She prayed with all her heart's desire that she could somehow raise her kids in the Gospel. With many miracles, I somehow ended up being able to visit my mother in America and was able to stay. I met the missionaries and was taught the gospel, and I remember thinking that the lessons were familiar to me and I knew that the missionaries were teaching me the truth. During this time I was able to quit many of my bad habits and change my life around. I was baptized on Mother's Day Sunday and have constantly been growing and learning ever since into becoming a disciple of Christ. My faith and understanding of the gospel grew and I am totally a different person now and can testify that I am a product of a miracle, and that God our Heavenly Father does exist, loves us unconditionally, is always trying to reach us to bring us His happiness, and if we let Him, He will change us and help us become the kind of person we were made to become.

How I live my faith

I pray often. Prayer is wonderful because it allows me to talk to my best friend (my God) anytime, anywhere, and about anything. I study the scriptures because that is how God speaks to me. I have received so many personal answers and directions from the scriptures and God has taught me so many things through them. I attend Church every Sunday to partake of the Sacrament to renew the Two-way-promises I made with God when I was baptized: to take upon the name of Jesus Christ and always remember Him, and keep His commandments which He has given me so that I may always have His Spirit to be with me. I observe the Sabbath Day by dedicating every Sunday of the week to the Lord, by not working in the workforce, by not working on my homework or other businesses from the week, and instead by engaging in service, spending more time studying the Gospel, and other things that help my personal relationship with my Savior. I attend the Temple of the Lord regularly and do other acts of service around the community and church. I am currently serving as an Indexing Committee in church, where I help to make the family history information and family name search options easier and faster to retrieve on the computer.
