Hi I'm Pieper

I love sweaters, Disneyland, and my husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a newlywed working to get my degree in physical education with an emphasis in outdoor recreation. I'm also working as a nanny part-time. I love to ski and enjoy the outdoors, but I also love to stay home to relax with my husband or to do crafts. I am learning to juggle my responsibilities in this new phase of life. Family is extremely important to me, and I cannot wait to someday have children of my own. I am grateful that I can be with my family forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS church. I have ancestors that were pioneers who trekked west to come to Utah. My parents have incredibly strong testimonies of the gospel. For so much of my life, I carried my parents' testimonies as my own. I struggled with my faith through high school as I tried to discover who I was. Deep down I believe I knew the church was true, but I suppose I needed to gain a testimony for myself. I was in college when I gained a strong testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that this is the true church. I am a Mormon because I believe the Book of Mormon to be the true word of God. I am Mormon because I believe that families can be eternal, and I cherish that with all my heart. I am Mormon because I know that my Savior died for me so that my sins may be forgiven. I am Mormon because I know my Heavenly Father loves me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday. I love to go to church to feel God's spirit. It isn't always easy and life can get distracting, but I live my faith by reading the scriptures and praying to my Heavenly Father each day. I strive to be honest, true, chase, benevolent, virtuous and do good to all men.
