Hi I'm Lilly

I'm a student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time University student, studying a Bachelor of Nutrition & Dietetics. Besides loving food and wanting to stay fit and healthy, I enjoy painting, baking, sculpting... any kind of creating. I've lived in Australia most of my life, but have also, like many other Australians, lived a while in the UK. I was working as a visual merchandiser in London, and loved it. Since then I have loved travelling and have seen much of Europe, parts of Asia and America, and I hope the list will continue to grow. Camping and being outdoors, cycling, running and appreciating God's beautiful creations is what I love best, and I'm lucky to live in such a beautiful and safe country where I can enjoy so many simple things in Life. My Faith is my life, and I would not want it any other way.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that my Father in Heaven loves me, and this is where he wants me to be. I know that my happiness comes from living a pure and righteous life, and so this is what I strive to do. I know that I am not perfect, but that the Lord and my Savour loves me for trying. Being a mormon is a wonderful thing, and I'm so grateful that there is such a loving community here to be a part of, to uplift, to love, to strengthen and also to confide in, to morn with and to seek help in overcoming trials. So many of my closest friends have been made through association within the church, I am truly blessed to have such a fortunate life.

How I live my faith

I have a calling at church, I am the female representative for the Young Single Adults (YSA) in my Stake. I love my calling, I have been able to get to know so many YSA's and really enjoy participating in organising spiritual and social events for them. I enjoy the responsibility as it has taught me many things about being a leader and serving others. I have also previously been called to teach in various areas, and I have enjoyed this so much, sometimes feeling as though I am learning more then those I am teaching. I am proud to be a mormon, and all of my friends outside of my faith respect me for this and the example I am to them. I also appreciate them and the beautiful examples they are to me. I think it is important to live in the word, but not necessarily of it. I have standards that I chose to keep and these help me from going astray from my divine goals.
