Hi I'm Heidi

I'm a journalist. I'm a dreamer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Journalism graduate. I love musical theater and Taekwondo. I love reading, especially Harry Potter and Jane Austin books. I also love all things Disney and I worked for the Disney College Program for a semester.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 14 I read the Book of Mormon and I felt the love of God so strongly, I knew it was true. It took a little overcoming of doubts because I was born with the gospel and I sincerly wanted to know it was true for myself, not just because it was what my parents taught me. But the Lord answered my prayers, and I've been building on it ever since. I know the gospel is true. Faith in Jesus Christ always leads to goodness and happiness. I know with faith in Christ never fails and his life is a sure pattern to which we can look in a world of shifting values. He is the Son of God and I know He Lives.

How I live my faith

I served a full-time mission in St. Petersburg, Russia and I saw so many ways the gospel is true. Now I'm back in the US and I'm trying to get involved in helping others again by serving others and living like a disciple of Christ. I set a goal to do one act of service a day. Sometimes it doesn't work out like I plan so my service ends up being something like doing the dishes for my mom or helping my little brother with his homework. I'm trying to become more like him too so I try and study his life and teachings daily, from the Bible and Book of Mormon and good religious sources and leaders. I know everything that Inspires others to believe in Christ and emulate his life of giving is inspired of God.
