Hi I'm Dara

I grew up in Seattle. I dance & sing. I go to college. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! I am 22 years old and going to school right now studying Health Science. I'd like to go onto grad school next year to become an Occupational Therapist. I was married in December 2010 to the man of my dreams & am living a happy life with him. In high school I was on a competitive Ballroom Dance Team and continued to do some ballroom in college until I took a modern dance class; then I really found my niche! I love contemporary dance & can't get enough of it. Mostly all you need to know about me is that I like to laugh and have fun, I love my family, I love to dance, and I love the LDS church!

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. That is why I am a Mormon. Throughout my life I have tested the standards given, the commandments and the doctrine, in my own way, and found it to be true. When I am living the standards of the gospel and in accordance with Heavenly Father's teaching I am happy. When I am not I find that life becomes a little bit more complicated and I lack the clarity of direction when I am seeking carnal or natural man desires. I know that Heavenly Father is aware of me and that through living the gospel as He as revealed unto us at this time, I can return to Him! What a glorious idea! It is so sweet to think that, as I live righteously, there is always hope. Even though the world is rising in wickedness and reaping in unrighteousness, there is still hope! That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Since I'm in school my callings (volunteer positions) tend to be short term, for a semester or two at most; because that's how long I stay in a ward. My favorite calling in the church was when I taught the women of our ward. I loved preparing lessons and teaching to our individual classes needs.
