Hi I'm Clarissa

I'm a Mormon. I love the outdoors, playing sports, and spending time with friends and family.

About Me

I love playing sports and anything to do with the outdoors. Spending time with my friends and family mean so much to me. I'm number six of seven kids. Growing up we didn't have everything everyone else had, but I wouldn't trade those days for all the money in the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon my whole life. Even though I've been a Mormon my whole life I still learn more and more each time I go to church or to a ward activity. The experiences I've had throughout my life thus far make me so grateful that I am a Mormon. No, its not easy. If it was easy then everyone would do it. We wouldn't learn and grow and become closer to our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ if this was an easy thing to do. Each day I pick something about myself to work on to do better. Prayer is a huge thing for me. Knowing that I always have my Heavenly Father to turn to, I know I'm never truely alone. I know He hears and answers our prayers(even if we don't get the answer we wanted). I also have the love of my friends and family that I'm exstremely grateful for. One of the things that I love about being a Mormon is the great opportunities I have to serve others. Serving others helps me to forget about my own problems and in turn I get to help others with theirs to make their problems less of a burden.

How I live my faith

Serving others in any way that I can is one of the ways I live my faith. Trusting in God everyday in the good times and the bad are other ways that I live my faith. I try to be a good example to my friends, family, and to those that I don't even know. In order to do so, I pick something about myself that needs work, for instance, my attitude some days aren't the best and so I do my best to change my bad attitude into a good one.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Clarissa
The blessings that we can recieve from the gift of the Holy Ghost are peace, comfort in times of pain and sorrow, and we also can recieve warnings that help protect us to stay away from certain things or places. Other blessings that we recieve from the Holy Ghost are thoughts and feeling that testify to us the things that we are being taught are true. Show more Show less
