Hi I'm Arianna

I love the Evergreen State. Music, writing and sour gummy worms are always a hit. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As for me, I enjoy the simple things. My friends and family are very important to me. I find that the situation can vary, but as long as I have those near and dear to me; I will be alright. I am the middle child of three. One day I hope to find myself at the front of a classroom. I plan on being an elementary teacher. I find peace and relaxation through music and writing. I love to cook and to be on the computer. I love to watch movies and eat popcorn. If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be right where I was raised. I have dreams to visit Ireland, pet a penguin and swim with sharks.

Why I am a Mormon

Initially, perhaps like most of those raised in the church, I am Mormon because that's where I was taken to church every Sunday since I was little. I was baptized when I was eight and continued to be a part ever since then. There comes a time though, when every person has to make a decision for themselves. Is this truly what I believe and why am I still here? For me, this did not come until I was sitting in a little muggy classroom surrounded by 10 other missionaries. In the Missionary Training Center is where I began my true conversion process. I am Mormon because I have felt the change in my own life as I faithfully live the way that is asked of me. I am Mormon because I have seen how having faith in Jesus Christ and our Father in Heaven can bind a failing family together and help them find new purpose in life. I am Mormon because I have done the praying and the work it takes to gain a testimony of it's truthfulness. My answer was simple and sincere. It came as peace and comfort.

How I live my faith

As of this very moment I am choosing to live my faith by serving an 18 month mission. I am currently a missionary for the Texas San Antonio Mission. I have the wonderful opportunity to serve the Lord and those around me. Each day is a welcomed day because I know my purpose here. I get to invite others to come closer to Christ! I get the joy of helping others build upon their testimonies of Christ and His gospel and His role in each of our lives. My life consists of studying the scriptures and seeking ways to better who I am so that I can be of aide to those searching for a higher road. By working each day to solidify my faith and love for my Savior, I find joy in life. It's never easy, but it's possible.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. In it contains the fullness of Christ's gospel. It shares with the world what is to be expected of those who are true followers of Christ. In the Book of Mormon we have more testimonies of prophets who prophesied of the coming of Christ and those who were able to see Him. The Book of Mormon testifies of the divinity of Christ and his teachings. Faith, repentance, baptism, the Gift of the Holy Ghost, perseverance, prayer and many other truths are taught within it's pages. Everyone can know if the Book of Mormon is true through a sincere desire to know. Through prayer and faith an answer can be received. Show more Show less
