Hi I'm Heather

I grew up in Florida. I love the game of golf. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 Hi I'm Heather and I am currently enrolled in college. I grew up in a small town on a cattle ranch. I love to ride horses and ATV's. I have played the game of golf all my life and I love it. I am going into Floral Design and I eventually want to work in Event Floral somewhere. I love being able to take something and make it beautiful in my own way. I am very bubbly and love to laugh. I do my best to keep a smile on.

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up in the church and have been a member all of my life. I still choose to follow this church's teaching because I know without a doubt that they are true. I have had things in my life that have happened and they have not been easy, but the Lord is always there to help me and guide me back onto the path. I am so grateful for this church and for the love of it's members. I am grateful for the knowledge that it has brought to me. I testify that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. The stories within the pages of the book are true and they can relate to us in anyway that we need. I love this gospel so much and do not know where I would be without it.

How I live my faith

 I am currently in college and I am attending a ward full of students. One of the things that I do in the ward is once a week a small group of us get together and talk about gospel principles. I have been able to teach some of those lessons and I have been blessed just as much with these lessons as the students that I teach. I am thankful for the opportunity I have to sometimes teach because not only are my students learning, but I am learning as well.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Heather
 No, not all Mormons are required to serve a mission. It has been asked by the President of the church that all young men at the age of 19 serve a mission. In the end it is up to the young man whether or not he feels like serving a mission is the right thing for him to do. Young women at the age of 21 can also serve a mission, but that is not required either. It is only if she feels as though that is what she should do. Show more Show less
