Hi I'm Joyce

I grew up in Mesa. I am going to school to be a psychiatrist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

For fun I like to rollerblade or play with my dog. My husband and I spend a lot of time with our families, usually playing board games, watching a movie, or talking about whatever life drama has come up. I am trying to go to school to be a psychiatrist, however I have taken some time off because I am pregnant! :) We are due in March. So now, I am just working at a pretzel shop earning extra money to put in a savings account for our child.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon for a lot of reasons. I believe that God exists and I believe he wants us all to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be! Showing up at church on Sundays makes me feel good, and taking sacrament makes me feel clean and refreshed. I am a convert. I was originally raised in the church, but my family strayed away as I grew up. I stopped going to church and participating in church events. Life was okay then. Then I met my husband. He showed me what being Mormon was like. I hated it at first, but when I opened my mind, I found that there was a lot to love about the religion, and the people that are part of it. And since, my life has been better than okay! It's been great. I didn't realize how much I had been missing.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church on Sundays, reading my scriptures every night before I go to sleep, and by being a Visiting Teacher.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Thomas S. Monson! I love hearing his talks. He is a very wise man full of great advice. Show more Show less
