Hi I'm Betsy

I'm a missionary serving in Tampa, Florida! I like apple juice. I'm a designer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest in my family of five. I grew up the beautiful state of Utah and spent my childhood playing softball, riding horses and having fun times with my family. I graduated from BYU-Idaho with a degree in Interior Design. After a few years of working in the design field, I decided I'd rather be working for the Lord. I'm currently a missionary serving in Tampa, Florida. The land of oranges, sink holes and the sweetest people I've ever met!

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be taught the principles of Gospel by my parents. For many years I based my beliefs on theirs. But there came a time when I want to know for myself if this was Jesus Christ's true church. I questioned. I studied the Book of Mormon. I pondered. I prayed many times. With time, the Holy Ghost testified to my heart that this is Jesus Christ's true and living church, that He is it's chief cornerstone and my personal Savior and Redeemer. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and Joseph Smith was divinely appointed to restore His gospel. I know that we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father and he wants us to be happy! This knowledge and truth has changed who I am. It has given me purpose. It has given me understanding. It has given me pure joy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through daily simple acts. I pray. I study the scriptures. I serve those around me. I try my best to pattern my life after Jesus Christ and love others as He loved them.
