Hi I'm Daly

I cherish sour patch kids. I drive a purple car. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play soccer, anywhere and anytime! No matter what i'm wearing; I will rip off my high heel pumps and kick around a ball. I love to read, my favorite book series is the City of Glass Series. I am a Senior in High School, and am looking forward to college. In the fall i'm planing to attend the University of Utah and pursue a career in Pediatric Nursing! I am excited to gain an education that will not only benefit me in employment, but as a mother someday. I believe I was born to grow up. I bet you are thinking, "Aren't we all?" Here is what I mean: When I was little I carried my polly pocket dolls around in a briefcase, and organized them in a fishing tackle box. Each doll had her own compartment, complete with a name label. I love organization-despite the fact that my room is a disaster. [: I am looking forward to growing up and having an eternal family of my own someday. That is the one dream I've always had-to be a mother someday. To fulfill my divine roll here on earth. Yes, i'm only 17. But I know what I want and who I am. I always have.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I believe in eternal families. My mother is a convert; and my father was an inactive member who found his religion again shortly after my birth. They tell me they joined the church for selfish reasons. They know the compassion the ward would show them when they were in need. They took one look at me and said, "We are going to need a lot of help." [: My parents learned how to pray-and I vaguely remember bowing my little head for the first time. I didn't quite understand that I was speaking with the lord. But I did know I was following my parents humble example. They had admitted defeat-and that they couldn't do this alone. I myself have questioned God's plan for me. Patience has never been my strong point. I have prayed, and I have received confirmation that I do have a divine purpose. That is to be a mother someday, and to raise those precious children in the truth and light of the LDS gospel. I have no doubt that I have a purpose here, and someday in the future I will be able to become the women I know my Lord wants me to be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through example. I set out each day to be the example of a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder Day Saints. I make sure my friends & classmates know of their divine qualities, and that a boy should never make you feel inferior because of modest clothes or less than a stellar body type. I strive to lead by example in completing my Personal Progress(Kind of like earning your eagle scout for girls), and put every single piece of myself into my work. As a class president in church, I keep my classmates in mind when planning wednesday night activities. I try to help them develop their own unique talents, and be a shining example as well. Together, we can make a difference. I try to serve others, and remember that when I am in the service of others-I am in the service of my Lord.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Look all around; how could there not be a god? I see a beautiful family that was not put together here on this earth by mistake. I see the intricacy of plant life, and how our world is all interconnected. I'm telling you, there is no way this was all created by chance. We were sent here to live, grow, and learn. There is no way we have accomplished all of this on our own. When I pray, I can feel my God's love. If you haven't I challenge you to kneel down with a humble heart and pray to your God. You will feel his love, and know he is listening. Show more Show less
