Hi I'm Heather

I'm a Mormon. I love the Savior!

About Me

I'm 22 years old, going to college. I have grown up in Florida, served a mission in California. I love constantly gaining new experiences as well as meeting new people. I like learning what makes people who they are, and how the world works! I love different cultures. For fun, I like to sing, play piano, and occasionally get a runner's high when I get in the mood to endure long runs. I'm still figuring out who I am, and who I can become!

Why I am a Mormon

I love this church! To me, it makes so much sense and I've felt the spirit so much in it. I've grown up in this church, and I have always felt it to be true. It is who I am and how I see myself as a daughter of God. I've read the Book of Mormon and I know it to be true. I know that God himself leads this church, through a Prophet. I feel closer to God when I am able to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ through His Living Prophets. I know it is just as important to hear from them as it is to hear from Ancient Prophets. I am especially grateful for Joseph Smith's testimony that helped me know Heavenly Father loves his children so much, that both Him and Jesus Christ showed themselves in our day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the small and simple things... church on Sunday, scripture reading, prayers. I also show my faith and trust in the Lord, by believing he will catch me if I fall. I believe in the Atonement to help me through hard times. I know that because of the Atonement, Christ knows exactly what each and every one of us are going through. He overcame everything as well, so he can help us overcome anything. It is a perfect plan from a perfect and loving Heavenly Father.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It has historical accounts from the people in the Ancient Americas who had dealings with God. They truly loved Jesus Christ, and praised him. When I first read the Book of Mormon on my own, I felt a very subtle feeling touch my heart that "these people knew God". I know that was the Holy Ghost, and I will never forget it.
