Hi I'm Whitney

I grew up in on a farm. I love to drive the tractor for my dad. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I went to college. I got my associate of science. I am planning on finishing my degree as a nurse. I took ballet for about 10 years. I have always loved to dance. I look forward to dancing every week. Also, I love to read. Every chance I get, I will read. I love how books capture you and you are the character in the book searching for a loved one or fighting the bad guys. I also love to do things out doors. I love to ride horses. I love riding a horse and feeling the power of horse as you are riding up a hill. I also love to drive the tractor. Whatever my dad needs me to do, just tell me how and give me a good radio station. So I love doing things inside and outside and getting to experience the beauty of both worlds.

Why I am a Mormon

I have found lots of happiness in my life being LDS. I have watched my brothers set an example and serve missions and watched how my family was blessed. We had such happiness that we didn't want life to be any different. As I watched them go on missions and come home a happier person, I realized that our life was so happy and blessed because of the promises we made to our Heavenly Father. Since we kept our promises he in turn blessed us. That is what He does, He blesses us when we follow him and do what he wants us to do. I always want that happiness in my life and the blessings I get when I follow Christ and do as He asks me to do. This started me on my own path of how can I make someone happy. So, I have followed the examples of my brothers, but most importantly I have followed the example of Jesus Christ. I read and I prayed to know the truth of the gospel. I had it confirmed to me that this church is true. The Holy Ghost confirmed to me that it was, and I know the Lord answers prayers. He answered mine. He will answer anyone who sincerely seeks Him.

How I live my faith

Our church is a family church. One thing I love about church is the church family. One way we reach out to strengthen our church family is simply by visiting them. They know that we care about them. We will help them whenever they need. We do a lot of service for others. It is one way we show our love. Everything our church does builds up others, not tears them down. When we build up others, it shows true love for them. I know that when I walk into the church building or when I am just around the church members, I feel their love. I love to be a part of that service and love. One of my favorite things to say to people is, "What can I do to help improve your life?" Then, most important, I strive to do it.
