Hi I'm Candace

I am the middle child of 5. I love being involved in life and meeting new people! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am starting into my second year of college and so excited, I love how education opens many doors in my life that will lead to a bright future. I love music! I love to sing, play the piano, and play the guitar. Music has always been a huge part of my life and something that I feel helps me to express myself. I love working with people. Throughout high school I was heavily involved in student counsel and leadership positions in many clubs and groups along with being involved in pageants. My dreams and goals in life include traveling the world from Guatemala to Europe to Africa (and everywhere in between). I love many different sports and have been coaching gymnastics for over 5 years. My new love is triathlons; which I was able to complete my first one a few months ago and completely loved it! I love my family, they are such a huge part of my life and who I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of this church but have been through a conversion myself. There comes an age in your life that you have to find things out for yourself and find truth. This age for me was in my teenage years where I started to question things. During these times I learned the importance of prayer and scripture reading in my life. I became closer to my savior and Heavenly Father and saw the help and guidance they gave me as they directed me to where I am today. I have found that when I am really trying hard to do the right thing and attending church I am so happy and life just seems to work out. This gospel has blessed me so much in my life and opened many doors and opportunities for me. I know we have a loving father in heaven who is always there for each and every one of us, understands us perfectly and cares for us like no one else can.

How I live my faith

The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has helped me to have many opportunities to help and serve those around me. Every time that I have had the chance to serve others I have found that it has blessed my life and built me up in a way that nothing else can. As a women in the church I have the opportunity to go and visit other girls in the ward. Befriending and getting to know these special women have blessed my life so much and helped all of us to make it through the hard times of life. I have found this to be such a blessing in college because many of the girls my age are away from home and living on their own. Getting to know them has helped me to better understand how I can serve them and in return blesses me with an amazing friend.
