Hi I'm Quincy

I am a college student, a dancer, a food enthusiast, and a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a little farming town in Central Washington called Moses Lake. I am grateful to have grown up in Moses Lake for many reasons, one being that it had a large populations of Mormons, with which I was able to interact with my whole life and learn and grow from. Currently, I am a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I graduated High School in 2015, with both my High School Diploma, and my AA. I am studying Communications with an emphasis on Public Relations. I attended Moses Lake High School, where I was very involved in the Dance and Drill Team as a Captain. I am a dancer of 15 years and absolutely love it. It taught me about hard work, setting goals and achieving the impossible, and perseverance. I am extremely blessed to have such an amazing family, who was always there for me. I have an older brother named Jordan, an older sister Madi, who is married to my brother-in-law Kyle, and a little brother named Jackson. I am grateful to know that families are forever, because I don't know what I would do without them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I have been going to church every Sunday since I was born. My mom and dad are both leaders in our ward. I was baptized into the church when I turned eight. But all of that is not why I am a Mormon. I am a Mormon, because I love the feelings I get by going to church, and listening to all the wonderful lessons that are taught. I am a happier person when I am going to church, reading my scriptures, and praying daily. I have a support system that is not just physical, but spiritual. I believe in Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. And i know that they are on my side, and want what's best for me. With that knowledge, I can do anything. The emotions I have of gratitude, love, and faith for this gospel are indescribable! It has taught me so much, and I am a better person for being part of this church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living my life in a way that reflects my love of God and my determination to try and be more like Him and His son, Jesus Christ, so that I can return to live with them again. Living like this is no easy task, especially in today's society. One way I live my faith is by choosing to obey the Word of Wisdom completely. While many college students participate in "normal" activities, such as partying and drinking and experimentation of different drugs, I show my love of God and the body I have been blessed with by taking care of it. This includes not partying or drinking. I want to be able to make smart decisions with a clear head, and not have my mind fogged by alcohol. I want to keep my body healthy, which means not consuming alcohol or any drugs or addictive substances. People say that by living this way, I am missing out on a normal college experience, but I believe that the way I live my faith will only bring blessings and happiness to my life, now and in the future.
