Hi I'm Rian

I'm a college student studying to become a nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated High School and am in my second semester of a community college. I go everyday and other than school I hang out with my friends. I'm also on two sports teams a basketball team for my YSA ward and a slow pitch softball team with a bunch of friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel and everything that it stands for. I'm a Mormon because I know that no matter what I'm going through I can always turn to the Lord for help. Whether I can't make up my mind on something as trivial as what would be the best way to handle a situation with a friend or something bigger like who I should marry. I know that I will get the answers I need in the Lord's time. He also will never leave us hanging in the world with nobody to turn to. He will always show us the way we are supposed to go even if it's not how we are expecting things to happen.

How I live my faith

I try to be the best example to the kids at my school as I can. I don't try to force my beliefs on anyone but I do try to let them know what I stand for. I hope by being a good example that I will be able to make an impression in somebodies life. I make sure people feel like they can come to me with questions they might have. Though I might laugh a little at some of the questions I get asked I still like to make sure they understand why I behave the way I do.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Rian
Modesty and chastity are related because when women are immodest they make men go to inappropriate places in their minds even if they don't want it too. I think the biggest way for parents to teach their children to be modest is by example because I know some of my friends who's mom's tell them to dress modestly the go out in a tank top and booty shorts their kids never listened to them about being modest. But when my mom taught me to be modest and dressed the way she wanted me too I was more willing to follow her example. It always makes me think of monkey see monkey do. If a kids constantly sees immodest dress they will wear immodest dress and visa versa. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Rian
A testimony is the knowlede of the truthfulness of something through the confirmation of the Holy Ghost. You can have a testimony in anything fom knowing you have a loving Heavenly ather to knowing that Joseph Smith restored the true gospel though Jesus Chist our Savior. Show more Show less
