Hi I'm Staci

Photographer, music lover, runner and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in Riverside, California. But I'm from Oklahoma - Boomer Sooner! Being from the Mid-West I'm pretty easy going and I go hard for my football. I'm artsy so I enjoy stuff like that, especially photography. I'm big on fitness and I run. A lot. As long as I've got some music and a Dr. Pepper I'm usually a pretty happy girl. I just like to be free and have a good time, and the Gospel is a big part of that.

Why I am a Mormon

"That which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day." -D&C 50:24. I'm a Mormon because I've seen a dark side of life and the restored Gospel truly is light that grows brighter and brighter. I've been a member of the church my whole life but I struggled for many years to fully live the Gospel. I've battled depression most of my life. It was only when I finally turned to my Savior that I was able to find peace and healing. Through Jesus Christ I was able to be washed clean of past mistakes. And today I face each day with courage because I know that we have a Heavenly Father who loves us. We're not perfect. All of us have made mistakes and been through hard things. But I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are right beside us as we stumble around our weaknesses here on earth and strive to be better. I know that we all can overcome our weaknesses and find strength and peace as we come into the arms of our Heavenly Father and Savior. I love this Gospel!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the best I can one day at a time and helping others do the same.
