Hi I'm Deidre.

I was born and raised in southern Arizona. The best parts of my life are my family and my faith in Christ.

About Me

The main characteristics that describe me are out-going, social, and a big sister. I have 5 younger siblings and consider them a large part of who I am. I like to play volleyball and music, when time permits. I like other sports although I am not necessarily good at them. I am currently a freshman in college in a town and place I love. My favorite poem is Footprints (if you don't know it, it is a good one to look up). I am excited to see what my future brings but content to enjoy my life now.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I have been in the church my whole life, I have had to gain a testimony by putting to practice what I have learned. I have been through some difficult trials in my life and when I chose to put my faith in Christ I felt the comfort and support I needed to make it through. I always feel better about who I am and make better decisions when I am following the teachings of the church and its leaders. I haven't had any profound moments of revelation but I have learned that the quiet whispers of the Spirit are a powerful witness. I choose to follow my feelings of comfort from the Spirit and love of Christ because I am happier when I do.

How I live my faith

Coming to college has helped me to practice my faith more than ever. I try to attend my meetings and activities that will strengthen me and my testimony. Also, I attend institute classes. Reading and praying and trying to recognize the promptings of the Spirit help me live my faith. I know that Christ performed the atonement so that He could help me. Participating at the Welcome Center (institute) helps me come closer to Christ and His children.
