Hi I'm Candace

I'm an exercise fanatic. I'm a teacher in the Middle East. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a twenty-three year old teacher living in the Middle East. I was born and raised in Florida. My hobbies include baking yummy treats, reading books, going to the movies, and exercising! I love learning about new people and cultures and traveling the world! I hope to one day own a diner and start a nonprofit organization with my sisters. I believe in laughing until my sides ache and eating chocolate daily! I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, and my ultimate goal in life is to become like Him.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that this Church has the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God, translated by a prophet, Joseph Smith. I know that we have living prophets, as real as Moses or Abraham, who speak to us today. And I know that we have a Savior who loved us enough to come to Earth and suffer for our sins and pains. The knowledge that I have gained as a member of this Church has sustained me through every trial that has come my way. The faith that I have gained through weekly church attendance, various church activities, and daily prayer and scripture study, will continue to sustain me as I face an unknown future. The restored gospel is an anchor in my life and I am so grateful to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have the privilege of teaching a class of children in my ward. I love working with children and helping them to understand truths of the restored gospel. I come each week prepared to teach them, but they always end up teaching me much more through their simple faith and love of God. I also have the chance to visit with other women in the ward each month, to get to know them, discuss the gospel, and to help them with any needs they may have. I love this opportunity for friendship and unity! Each day, I live my faith by trying to be like Jesus Christ. I try to do the things that He would do if He were alive today through serving those around me. Through daily prayer and scripture study, I find greater strength and knowledge to accomplish that task.
