Hi I'm Aubria

I live in Texas. I play three instruments. I love meeting new people and making friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah and recently moved to Texas. I love music! I sing in my high school choir and I can play the piano, the flute and the organ. I also love to read. Fantasy novels are my favorite! Family is very important to me, I love to spend time with them and hang out together. My favorite activity that we do is sing with each other. Playing games with each other is also a favorite of mine. I am also a people person. I love to meet new people and make lots of friends. Sometimes I am surprised that I know so many people, even though I am a little shy when I meet someone new.

Why I am a Mormon

The most important reason that I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is because I know that my Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ, live. I know that they love me and want me to make good and right decisions. And I know, that this is his true church on the earth. Being a member of this church is also a great strength to me. When I am having a difficult time I can turn to other members and my family and they will be supportive, and try to help me get through hard times. I know that I can receive personal revelation from the Holy Ghost and He will help me to answer my questions, about life, and the gospel, and even my school work. I know that Joseph Smith was and is a true prophet of God. Today we have a prophet on the earth, President Thomas S. Monson, who hears the word of God and tells us the lord's will. Every time I pray to the Lord and ask Him to help me He hears and answers my prayers. Sometimes I lose my things and I can't remember where they are, so I pray to the Lord and he always helps me to find them, even if it is just a book that I wanted to read or a necklace that I wanted to wear. I know that Heavenly Father hears and answers my prayers, that is why I'm a mormon.

How I live my faith

There are many ways that I live my faith. One of them is having a calling, or a job in the church. I am a councilor in the Young Women program. This program is for all young women 12-18 years old. Even though I am not an adult, I have been called to help my leaders and to council with other young women how we can strengthen the faith of the girls. I am to think of the girls who are 16-18 years old and pray to know how I can help them. I also have another calling, which is to play the organ for church services. This can be very nerve wracking because I play in front of lots of people, but I try my best. It is an amazing privilege to play the hymns and help others to feel the spirit, I know that it is the spirit that works through me to help others. Keeping God's commandments is also another way that I live my faith. I try to dress modestly and not to swear or curse. It is sometimes hard to do, but I try my best and ask the Lord to help me. Doing these things makes me look different than a lot of people, some have asked me why I don't act a certain way. I think it is because I know that I am a child of God and so I want to act the same way that I would if I were in His presence.
