Hi I'm Heidi

I am serving a mission right now for the next 18 months of my life. I'm so grateful that I'm a mormon!

About Me

I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ more than anything! My favorite place to be and thing to do is to be with my family. I love to grow and become better each day. I love life! I love to be healthy and learn more about health! I love sports and games; I love to have fun and laugh. I love animals! I am so grateful for all the blessings God bestows upon me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Chuch of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I have sought out for myself to know of its truth. There came a point in my life when I was around 14 that I was asked by my father if I knew that this church was true. I didn't know. I had been relying upon my parents testimony, and when my dad asked me this question it initiated a desire in me to know of myself that the church is true. I prayed to know and put in my part by studying and learning of the Gospel. I did not immediately gain a testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I acted on my desire and practiced the principles I had learned and the additional ones that I continued to learn. I then began to really feel that this is the right thing to do; that the Gospel of Jesus Christ restored though the prophet Joseph Smith is absolutely true. The Holy Ghost gave me feelings of the greatest happiness and peace and confirmed to me of its truth. I love our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ so very much. I have seen Their hand in my life. They love us all! I feel greatly priviledged and honored to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! My testimony of Them and Their Gospel is one of my greatest possessions!

How I live my faith

I strive to do my best to keep and obey all the commandments of God. I do my best to do His will and all the things He has for me to do. I study daily of His word and grow closer to Him through this study as well as through prayer, one of the greatest blessings we have. I also help plan activities for the ladies in our area. I am a visiting teacher. These callings are a great blessing to my life.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

No, not all mormons are required to serve a mission. All worthy young men have a duty and responsiblity to serve and are strongly encouraged, but ultimately it is their decision. Young women may also serve a mission if they desire to; they do not have a duty or responsiblity to serve a mission. Show more Show less
