Hi I'm Mandolin

I'm a runner, and an artist. I love to bake. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an energetic teen! I run cross country, and still love to jump on the trampoline. I am very artistic too, and enjoy drawing, making pottery, and painting. I love baking cookies, and often make them for others. The most important things in my life are my family, friends, and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a Mormon, but just because I've lived this all my life, doesn't mean I haven't questioned the gospel. I've had many spiritual experiences that have helped to confirm my beliefs. I love being Mormon! I have many friends who uplift me, and help me to live righteously. Because of my faith, I know that I am a daughter of God, and this helps me to see myself and others in a different light. I know that this is the right place for me, and that through my faith, I can become the person who God wants me to be.

How I live my faith

Every morning I attend an early morning scripture study class, called seminary. This brings me closer to the Lord as I learn more about the gospel. Each day I grow a little stronger, as I keep the standards of the church. Some of my standards are refraining from profanity, dressing modestly, serving others, and striving to be a good example to others.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Mormon women are some of the kindest and most charitable people I know. They have a light that shines about them, and they are fun to be around. Many people seem to think that because women cannot hold the priesthood, the church views them as less important. This is not true! Women were given a sacred power too -- the power to procreate. These powers and responsibilities go hand in hand. Fathers protect the family, while mothers nurture the children. Both men and women are equil in the sight of the Lord. Show more Show less
