Hi I'm Ariana

I'm originally from Utah, but I've lived in Arizona for half my life. I love music and I have a passion for singing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a small family with only one other sibling, my younger sister. I love music and I have always had a passion for singing and helping others. I plan on majoring in Music Therapy in college. Right now I am attending college to get my associates degree.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. As a younger girl, I wasn't really sure what it meant to be a Mormon. I didn't really understand everything about the church, and even now, I'm still learning things. When I went to Girls Camp for the first time, we were given the opportunity to go off on our own to pray or ponder why we had come to camp. I decided to pray and ask my Father in Heaven if His church was true. I asked to receive a true testimony for myself of His gospel. That was when I knew that this is the true church. I know that Jesus Christ died for each and everyone of our sins so that we could return to Him again one day. I know that no matter how far I may stray from the light of the gospel, I can always return to Him. He loves me, and He wants me to be happy. He will never test me above what I am able. I'm so blessed to have this knowledge and I'm so glad to know that He will never leave me helpless and alone. He is always there for me. That's the greatest comfort in the world.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church, and attending Institute, which is a place for those wanting to learn more about the church to express their questions and to have them answered. I have met many good friends from attending institute. I also visit teach. I go to the homes of other women in my ward and share with them a message once a month to let them know that our Father in Heaven loves them and values them. I express my love for them as well, and ask if there is anything that I can do to ease their burdens, or assist them with tasks they may not be able to achieve on their own. One of my favorite things to do is attend the temple, and go to the visitor's center to be closer to the Lord.
