Hi I'm Arlee

I'm a Mormon. I live in Colorado. I am a student. I served a mission in Sydney Australia.

About Me

I am a student studying History education. I love stories and find value in teaching others, as it helps them become better. I like to exercise, and recently completed my first half marathon. I have learned Capoieria a Brazillian dance fighting game. I love to read, and play video games.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church, however I have come to know it is true for myself, and live its teachings because they are true. My knowledge of this really began to grow when I acted upon. It started small, but has grown. First as I started reading the Book of Mormon, I noticed that as I read my day went better. So now I always read. As well I have had experiences with prayer, from praying to find something to help with the larger decisions of life. I know God lives and that he cares about us individually. He answers in his own time and way. He cares about our learning and growth. I have prayed about this church and I know it is true. I have felt in my heart, a tingley feeling for me, one of peace that I know is from God. He loves us, and sends Prophets today to guide us and direct us. They are true, and give us the commandments of God. As we follow God, and his Prophet, I know that we will be kept safe and learn and grow in ways we could not otherwise.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily. Each day I read from the scriptures, both the bible and the Book of Mormon. Especially the Book of Mormon. There is power in that book. I read even if it is one verse. I pray both morning and evening, at meals, and whenever during the day I wish to speak to my Heavenly Father. He hears and answers me. I pray often in my heart, and formally. I attend Church meetings where I am able to renew covenants I have made with God each Sunday, and participate in other activities the church has such as Family home evening, which brings families closer together to learn, and enjoy an activity and treat. I try to respect my body and get it the exercise it needs. I am happier when I do. I visit other members doing home teaching, to strengthen them in the gospel. I also have a responsibility at this time as directing indexing for my ward. It is pretty much making it so that census records and such are legible. I do this because I have been asked to and it is a calling from the Lord. It is important because it is part of helping those who have passed on make covenants in the Temples, so that they may live with God. I attend the Temple Regularly which reminds me of my own covenants, and helps me see the eternal perspective. I also serve as I may, and strive to repent and become better, more like God.
