Hi I'm Di

I am 15 almost 16 years old. I live in Arizona. I have Autism. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being a Mormon. I have been a Mormon all my life. I know I am special in a lot of ways but that is OK. I know I am this way not because I have done something bad and no one loves me but I am this way because I am special. I love my friends and everyone is so nice to me because I am nice to them. I love to read. Because my birth mother did not take care of herself and me before I was born I have many special challenges but with the help and love of my family and Lord, I can do anything.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a baby and in foster care I was sent to a family that were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon). They loved me and took care of me. They never gave up on me. After I was adopted I was sealed to my family. This means I will be with them for time and all eternity. I am glad about this because I never want them to go away and I never want to be without them. I know the Lord sent me to my family because he wanted me to learn about Him and our Father. He knew I would be a really good missionary and spread his word. I want everyone to feel happy like me and have what I have with an eternal family.

How I live my faith

I tell anyone I can about our church. I want everyone to know about what our Father has given to us if we just learn of Him. I serve in the Young Women's organization as the secretary. I love being the secretary. I take notes, keep the roll and help out with anything I can. I love having friends of all the girls there and the leaders really care about me and all the girls. I love going to summer camp with the all the girls from our area. We hike, sing, talk, do activities and just have fun. I am so glad so many people do so much so we can go. I love my family. I know they will always love me and be there for me forever. My name is Di and I am a Mormon and I love it.
