Hi I'm Arminda

I love playing volleyball and softball, I just graduated high school, and I love riding horses. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of 3 children. I have one brother and one sister. I enjoy playing and watching sports. I played volleyball and softball all through high school. I have been on horse back since I could walk and always a country girl at heart. I have dated a boy named Justin Mercer for 3 years now, he was baptised on September 4, 2010. He is a great example to me and the people around him. He strengthens me everyday. My family is my backbone and my rock. They push me to be the best person I can be. By them i was raised on true southern values and gospel principles. They make up the person I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a mormon. My entire family are mormons, but that is not why I am mormon. I have a strong testimony in the prophet Joseph Smith. When i was 12 my family and I went to all the church history sites. The most influential for me was the sacred grove. Such a young boy of only 14 and the amount of faith it took to ask, and then stand up to everyone, proves to me I can do whatever I want through my heavenly father and Jesus Christ. Another reason I am mormon is because of the Temple and the ordances we can make through being righteous and obediant. Especially the ordinance of enternal marriage. My parents were married in the temple and I will settle for no less. Being a Mormon sets me apart, this I am proud of. To know I have a personal relationship with and personal testimony of my lord and savior. And I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to right in every choice I make. Hevenly Father made us able to have agency, and I am thankful for the opportunity to be tested. You never know who is watching so I try to do the right in all times and in all things and all places, like the Young Women motto says. I am trying to stand as a witness of god. I want to be a good example to my fellow men of mormons. I try to help anyone who made need it because you never know what they are going through and what they may need. The most simple act could change their lives.
