Hi I'm Stacie

I'm a choir girl, I love my family, I'm grateful for the trials in my life, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently in high school and along with my regular 5 classes of the day, I take seminary too. It's a great extension to my gospel lessons and I enjoy having a break in the school day. I love to sing and I take choir at school. Reading, writing, hanging out with friends and family, going on Facebook, listening to music, playing piano, and sleeping are some of my all-time favorite hobbies. I hope to attend ASU in a few years and major in journalism. That's just a couple small things about me! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church and am grateful for the example my siblings and parents have set for me by living the gospel. I always attended Sunday meetings and church activities growing up, but it wasn't until a couple summers ago, when I read the Book of Mormon all the way through for the first time, and prayed about it, that I gained a testimony for myself. I know this gospel is true because nothing brings me as much joy as being a member does. It gives me standards to live and grow by so I can be happy; I know the Savior and Heavenly Father love me, and that I am a daughter of God; Joseph Smith restored this church, and I have a testimony of all the gosple principles and their truth. I'm a Mormon because I choose to be. :)

How I live my faith

I attend seminary at school, I love going to church meetings on Sunday, and on Wednesdays I go to mutual activities with other youth in my ward. I strive to live my standards and be an example. Because I know everyone is a child of God, I try to live my faith by respecting and loving those I come in contact with. Being an example to friends and inviting them to church activities is how I try to live my faith.

What is the Church’s position on abortion?

I've had friends ask me questions similar to this and my basic response is: everyone is a child of God sent to this Earth to grow and progress, and to have that opportunity in a mortal body to gain experiences. Abortion takes away those chances to live a mortal life. Show more Show less
