Hi I'm Portia

I am reciently married. I have found that I love dancing as a way of celebrating cultures around the world! Im a Mormon.

About Me

I love to dance! Dancing has been my life since I can remember. Moving down to Arizona reciently has changed a lot of things for me. I was able to get married to my best friend! I ended up taking a break from working on my bachelors degree in Human Development untill I got in state residency for tuition purposes. Because of that break I am now working at an elementary school that I love! Life couldn’t be better. I am also expecting a baby which will add some more wonderful changes to mine and my husband’s life. We are so excited!

Why I am a Mormon

With so many things changing in my life, one things has always been a constant for me- My belief in my Heavenly Fathers love for me as his daughter and my testimony in His restored church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have felt since I was a little child that I had a loving Father in Heaven that loves me and that He is always there for me. This knowledge and relationship with my Heavenly Father has only strengthened as I have continued to study the Book of Mormon, Bible, and have strived to keep the commandments of God. I have learned to put his will before my own. His plan truly is a plan of happiness. I know that I have Heavenly parents that want me to make it back to them some day. Because of that they have restored the gospel to the Earth and have provided an atonement for each one of us. It is not always easy to keep the commandments, but I know that by doing so I will be able to have an eternal family with my husband and I will be able to always have the Holy Spirit to be with me. In other words, it is worth it!

How I live my faith

One way I try and live my faith is by serving. One thing about Jesus Christ that has always stuck out to me was how he was always going about doing good. In the ward I attend I am a Ward Missionary. That pretty much means that I get to be everyone’s friend! I get to go visit people who arent attending church right now and serve them in whatever way they need. Christ is always there for me and as such I am trying to be there for others in need as well.
