Hi I'm Quincey

I love to sing and play guitar and I'm a hairstylist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 Hi, I'm Quincey and I love life! I'm finishing up cosmetology school in Utah, and I love making people look good and feel good about themselves. I have so many wonderful friends that I'v met through school, work, and church that help me be a better person every day. Along with doing hair, I also love playing my guitar and singing my lungs out, even though I might not be very good at it! Music is an amazing way to channel energy and emotion. I love my family and the fun times we've shared together- so excited we can be together forever! That's me!

Why I am a Mormon

 I was born into the gospel, but that doesn't mean I was born with my own testimony of its truthfulness. My parents and leaders gave me a great headstart in understanding and knowing the Savior, but I worked and still do work at receiving that unshakable testimony. When I started going to seminary class at 14, I really began to realize the meaning the gospel could have in my life. Then, a couple years later when a close friend began investigating the church through me and another friend, I think my conversion really started. As I attended the missionary lessons with him in my friend's home, and as I privately studied the scriptures deeper, I began to feel the Holy Ghost speak to my heart about the truthfulness of what the missionaries were teaching my friend about Joseph Smith, the Atonement, and the Plan of Salvation. The friend was later baptized, and at his baptism I received further confirmation that this Church is Christ's church, and that he will reveal himself to those who diligently seek him out. Later, I received my patriarchial blessing, which is like personal scripture directly from Heavenly Father for my life. Once again, this experience furthered my testimony and encouraged me to continue to build on it. More recently, I cried to my Father in Heaven for help in coping with my closest friends in the world leaving to teach the gospel thousands of miles away for 2 years. He heard, and he came to comfort me, so I wouldn't have to be alone at that time. My testimony has been built not through a miraculous manifestation or visitation or loud voice, but through quiet and sometimes almost unnoticed whisperings of the Spirit, after I have faithfully asked on the Savior's name and read the scriptures. It is a work in progress, and I know that Heavenly Father loves me and watches over me and He blesses His children when they faithfully seek him. I'm not perfect. Sometimes I skip days of scripture reading or praying, and I can feel the difference. But what I know is that when we consciously try to become closer to Him, he closes the gap. I know that Christ is real. I know that he suffered for not only our sins and shortcomings, but also for our sadnesses and loneliness and grief and sickness. Heavenly Father must love us infintely to have sent his Only Begotten to suffer such pain so that He could see each of us in his presence again. I love Him for that. I know that Joseph Smith was called of God, and that he was divinely blessed to bring this Gospel to light once again. I look up to him and to his wife, Emma, for remaining faithful through the horrible persecution. I know that all the prophets that followed him in this dispensation were called of God, and that Thomas S. Monson is the true prophet today. I know that prayer works, and that we can receive answers and blessings, for us as well as other people. And because I know these things, I know that everything will be okay. I can do my best, and anything that needs to be changed can be fixed through my repentance and through Christ's loving sacrifice and mercy. The Gospel makes me happy! And I hope that I can be an example of Christ's love for others.

How I live my faith

I get to teach a class of 3 year olds on Sundays.  I was called to help out with the 'Sunbeam' class of toddlers, and I love doing it. We sit through singing time and the lessons with the other children, and then we go to another classroom for a lesson with just the 5 or so 3 year olds that the teacher that I assist and I have in our class. Although they are wiggly and noisy, they have such a wonderful spirit about them, and you can tell they are close to Christ. I've also had the opportunity to do little hair styling classes for the young girls in my ward. I love teaching the girls some tips of what I do, and they are always excited about it. I love the unity my ward has, and I love interacting with everyone when I go to church or to activities.
