Hi I'm Priscilla

I'm in graduate school studying Speech-Language Pathology. I love reading, hiking, and making others laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi there! I am a fun-loving twenty-something in my 7th year of college. I'm getting my degree in Speech-Language Pathology and hope to work in early intervention. My husband is a curly-haired, Chaco-wearing law student who loves to play Frisbee and read TOR fantasy novels. We love eating Indian food and watching Doctor Who (nerd alert!). I also love spending time with my nieces and nephews and am looking forward to being a mom in a few years. I love being a goof and making others laugh. Even though I'm studying Speech-Language Pathology, I would love to be a writer on the side, writing [mostly] non-fiction accounts of my crazy life. I think laughter is the best medicine. Second in line is chocolate. Lots of yummy chocolate.

Why I am a Mormon

While I was born in the church, I have had my fair share of doubts and questions regarding life, why we are here, where we came from, and where we are going. I wasn't always active in high school and constantly felt like something was missing in my life. When I began college I made some wonderful friends who were members, and they changed my entire perspective on the LDS Church. I realized that what I had been missing for so long was active participation in the growth of my testimony and my faith in the atonement and love of my Savior, Jesus Christ. These friends helped me meet my husband and eternal companion, who has helped me grow into a happy young adult. I find peace in knowing that there is someone who knows me and loves me, regardless of the mistakes that I've made. While I am not perfect or always perfectly happy, the Gospel helps me overcome trials and become a stronger person. I love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints with all my heart and know that it is the true church on this Earth.

How I live my faith

My husband and I teach a class for the 13-14 year-olds in our ward. They are a wonderful group of individuals. It is amazing how smart and strong they are in this time of immense temptation. I find that as I teach them, they often teach me much more. I have learned to become more understanding, and to see things from a different perspective. I love spending time with the youth and hope to continue to watch them grow and develop.
