Hi I'm Whitney

I'm a college student, an All-American volleyball player, and a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a big family: 4 siblings, 40+ cousins. I absolutely love love love my family even though I live away from them. I am in school and am pursuing a doctorate in Physical Therapy. I used to play volleyball in college and now I coach club volleyball. I enjoy coaching because I learn as much or more than what I teach my players.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but took a sidetrack in college. I never really developed my own testimony growing up so when I was forced to live on my own I fell away. After of few years of living the wrong way and hitting the bottom of the barrel; it finally hit me that to be happy I needed to make the gospel part of my life. I first started to attend church activities like family night and sport activities in my single's ward. After a few months I became a regular at church. I was nervous to meet with the bishop the first time but was relieved when I did it. I felt the love of our Savior for me and knew that repenting would be the best thing I could do in my life. It took me a while but I did it. Now I'm a worthy temple goer and would not change that for anything.

How I live my faith

My first calling after becoming active in the church again was Stake Sports Specialist. So I got to open up the gym and ref the sport activities like volleyball and basketball. I have since gotten a new calling: ward missionary. I am privileged to visit some of the less active members of our ward and people who are investigating our religion. I also get to help teach new converts about the ins and outs of our religion. One day a week I volunteer at the Family History Center. I seek out my family because, as I said before, I love love love my family I have now and want to have that same love for family members I never got to meet. The one thing I try to do to live my faith everyday is make it part of my everyday discussion and/or though process. I just want to share our Savior's love with everyone.
