Hi I'm Clare

I'm a Mormon. I grew up an Army-brat all over the U.S. and served a mission for the Church in San Diego, CA.

About Me

I'm currently going to school, studying Psychology. I've done quite a bit of volunteer work and in the future I would like to work to help girls with eating disorders or abusive victims. I have an almost unhealthy obsession with jig-saw puzzles haha I recently returned from serving a mission for the Church and it changed my life! Helping others to come closer to Christ has become my purpose for living every day. I love my family, especially being around my nieces and nephews. I have plans to travel the world after I graduate college. I'm slowly saving up so that I won't have to run from one cool city to the next, but instead take my time going through Europe and Asia and possibly Africa. I lived in Israel for four months and loved every moment of it. Some day I will continue my journey and hopefully with friends to come along!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this Church because I know it is true. When I was about 13 years old I wanted to know if the Book of Mormon was true. So, I began reading it and one night I was having a hard day. I knelt next to my bed and cried. I began to pray and asked God if He was there, and if He really cared. I told Him I needed Him at that moment, I needed to know He loved me. I felt a warmth all throughout my soul, almost as though someone had wrapped me up in a big, fluffy quilt. I felt that I needed to read the Book of Mormon and as I began to do so, I just knew that God loved me and that He was mindful of me. I have had many other experiences throughout my life to confirm those feelings I felt that night. I know the Book of Mormon is true, with all my heart and I know that God lives me and knows me individually. I am a member of this Church because I know it is true.

How I live my faith

I'm currently in the middle of a few different things. I spent the past 18 months dedicating every moment of my day to preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and inviting the children of God to come unto Him.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a testament of Jesus Christ. It testifies to us of our Savior, the power of His atoning sacrifice, and His love for each of us. It is also the proof that Joseph Smith was called to be a Prophet of God and to restore the Church of Jesus Christ once again on the earth. We all have the ability to read and pray about this wonderful book. I promise that if you choose to read it with an open heart and mind, then pray to ask God if it is true, He will answer you. Don't take my word on it, go find out for yourself! It will change your life. Show more Show less
