Hi I'm Candace

I enjoy photographing landscapes. I'm studying business management. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite hobby is photography. I enjoy shooting black and white film and printing in a dark room. I also shoot digital. I am inspired by Ansel Adams and love photographing landscapes and nature. I'm currently attending college and I am majoring in business management. At first, I was going to study biology, but after taking an accounting class I realized I was more interested in business. I love going on family trips, wether it's overnight backpacking or a special trip to Disneyland we always have fun!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members and encouraged me to go to church every Sunday when I was younger. As I got older, I decided that I would attend church because I wanted to- not because my parents told me to. This decision was a result of my personal conversion to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Reading the Book of Mormon helped me come to know Jesus Christ personally and I wanted to live His gospel. This decision has brought me great joy throughout my life and has brought me comfort during trails. Prayer is an important part of my life and as I pray with faith I can feel my Heavenly Father's and Jesus Christ's love for me. I know I am a daughter of God and that he knows me personally and desires for me to live so that I can return to his presence. I know that because of the atonement of Jesus Christ I can repent of wrongdoings and improve my life. The gospel brings joy to my life because I know that I can live with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I am a Sunday School teacher at church and I am currently teaching from the Old Testament. I enjoy helping others learn more about the Bible. During the week, I enjoy reading from the scriptures and saying personal prayers. These activities keep me close to Jesus Christ and God. In June I will be serving a mission to Santiago, Chile. I love the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and want to share it with others so they can experience the joy and happiness it will bring in their lives.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

The missionaries will share a message about Jesus Christ and His life. The will explain what the atonement of Jesus Christ is and how it can bless your life. They will teach you about the nature of God, who is often referred to by Mormons as Heavenly Father because his is your spiritual father. They will explain how we lived with God before coming to earth and will return to live with Him again because of the plan of salvation. Show more Show less
