Hi I'm Noelle Dickerson

I'm a missionary in the Philippines, Cebu mission. I love reading, laughing, and music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently a sophomore at BYU. I am majoring in English, and my dream is to work for the UN. I want to improve education opportunities for women in underdeveloped countries. I'm definitely a feminist, and I believe that education is the key to raising people out of oppression. I also want to do something to help refugees. I haven't really figured that part out yet. I love alternative rock and indie music. I also love reading. My favorite books are To Kill a Mockingbird, Grapes of Wrath, Cry the Beloved Country, and anything of that sort. I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Philippines, Cebu mission. This gospel has brought me so much joy, peace, and strength. I love this gospel, and I absolutely love sharing it!

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that every little verse in this book is from our Heavenly Father. I know that He loves us all very much and that He is always watching over us. I know that He gives me my trials so that I might grow and be able to accomplish His will. I know that Jesus Christ died on the cross and atoned for my sins. I know He felt every bit of pain or sadness that I have ever felt. I know that He cares for me. I believe that if I am righteous, I will be able to obtain eternal life and live with my family forever. I am so grateful for this church. It has helped me in so many ways. I know I can always pray and receive answers. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has brought me so much joy and happiness. I can't imagine how my life would be without knowing what I know. I hope everyone can find the same kind of peace and happiness that I feel.

How I live my faith

Every day I try my hardest to live my life the way Christ lived His. I strive to be selfless, loving, forgiving, humble, and patient. It isn't easy, but I pray that I can improve. I read the scriptures and pray every day as well. As a representative of Jesus Christ, I try my best to love others as He does.
