Hi I'm Angela

I love nature, geology and life! And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 23 and I grew up in Missouri, USA. I was homeschooled all of my school years and then went to a university after I got my GED. I love photography and anything that means being outside! I'm on a mission right now in the Texas Houston East Mission and I am loving it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a mormon so it has been part of my life from an early age, but when I got into my teen years I started to question what I really wanted to do and if this was the right church or just what I was used to. So I decided to really study and pray to know for myself if it was true. I read the Bible and the Book of Mormon, but I didn't just read I really pondered about what it was talking about, how that related to me and how I felt in my heart when I was doing this. While reading and tring to learn more I prayed to my Father in Heaven If what I was reading was true and right. I did this many time and with an open heart because I really wanted to know if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was his true and real church here on the earth. So after praying with all of my heart I waited and listened and everytime I asked I would recive this warm feeling in my heart. It was never anything grand or fireworks. But it felt like my heart was given a warm hug, I felt calm, comforted, peaceful and truely loved. That was when I knew that this was his true church here on the earth today, because how could something that was bad bring me such joy? So that is why I am Mormon, because it brings joy to my life and the life of my family like nothing else on earth possible could.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith everyday because I love it! I love to try my best everyday to keep the commandments because they are given to us to help us stay out of danger, to live a healthy life and to come closer to Christ so that we can return to our Heavenly Father. So all of the things we are commanded to do is to help us, but every time we do what we are supposed to do we recieve even more blessings! I don't know about everyone else but I need all of the blessings I can get just to get through this life. My faith has become my life and my support.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

 I'm a Mormon missionary right now, so I can answer that question! It is very simple. Have you every seen an amazing movie? I'm not talking about an okay movie I mean the best of the best, you have never seen a movie like this your whole life, kind of movie. So after you see this movie what do you do? Do you tell your friends about this movie? Of course you do! If you find something that was amazing you want to tell others about it so they can enjoy it as well, right? So, that is why I'm serving a mission! This gospel is amazing, it has brought me such joy, peace and happiness! So why wouldn't I want to share this same joy with everyone I meet?  Show more Show less
