Hi I'm Paige

I have grown up in the church and had it as my foundation for all my life. I love family, friends, and shopping! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time student studying Family and Human Development. I love learning about people and relationships. It's so fun to learn why people are they way they are and how to fix any problems. I have a wonderful family, but my parents just got divorced. With the Gospel in my life, I have been able to deal with those issues and stay positive and comforted.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was born into it. But I have always loved learning more and more about this Gospel and everything it has to offer. I love the feelings I get when I read scripture, or hear latter-day prophets speak, or praying to my Heavenly Father. I love Jesus Christ and the Atonement he made for me and you and everyone. I would not be where I am today without the Gospel or Christ. My love for Him and my Father grows every single day, as I follow their commandments. Going through my parents divorce was rough. But I am so grateful that I have the Atonement in my life. I was able to feel comforted and know that I was not alone. Christ felt exactly what I felt, and still do feel. He is there for me and knows my pains. I can always turn to Him whenever I am not feeling too happy, and I will feel His peace.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday, partaking of the Sacrament, and participating in the various church activities. Visiting teaching is so great. I always thought it might be kind of awkward and weird, but I truly do love it now. As you serve your sister(s), you grow a love for them that you never thought could happen. You can also grow a love for your visiting teaching companion. It's important to keep up these relationships and nourish them. Also, home teaching is a great asset. I do not have a Priesthood holder living with me to give me blessings, which are needed. So thankfully I had great home teachers that could act on their Priesthood authority for the blessings I needed.
