Hi I'm Claire

I'm a singer, improviser, and amateur cook. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student hoping to finish up my degree in Vocal Performance in the next year or so. I taught myself to play guitar, and I am part of a professional Improv troupe on the side. I am the youngest of six children, and the proud favorite aunt of nine nephews and seven nieces. I'm newly married and my husband is a student studying engineering. We happily cook and clean together, watch movies, play board games, go on hikes, garden, and make each other laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon because I strongly believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ, the love my Father in Heaven has for me, and the truth of The Book of Mormon, as translated by Joseph Smith. He was a great man and a great prophet. I have lived my whole life believing these things, but I didn't always understand them. The more I have looked for answers to my questions, the more I have studied, the more truths I have found. It's really amazing! One of the doctrines of the mormon church that I love the most is pertaining to families. I get to start my own family, and that family will last forever. How wonderful that is! 

How I live my faith

I attend church meetings every sunday, read scriptures the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon nearly everyday, and when I am in school I try to take a scripture based class at the Mormon Institute. I try to do service for others and I support my husband in his church responsibilities as he supports me in mine.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

I know that my husband and I were sealed for time and all eternity in the House of the Lord through His holy priesthood. It is my belief that we can be bound to our parents, children, grand parents and grand children through all generations. Through this, all of God's children can be returned to Him. I know heaven wouldn't be heaven without my family, and God wants all His children to live in His presence. He has provided Temples and the sealing power to give us a way to return to our home with Him. If we bind ourselves to our families here on earth with that holy power, we will be bound together in heaven. Show more Show less
